Vance's Darifree Fake Milk

Recommended Posts

Wow--that got there fast!! Well, it turned out perfect because today's your birthday--another present :D ! Hope you enjoy it--do make the cocoa--I do it with pure cocoa powder, sugar and the milk. It's so good. If you make up a pitcher-full, be sure to mix very well--use the hot water method on the label--it tends to want to clump on the bottom. Have fun--enjoy the rest of your day, and let me know how it goes! :)

I did use hot water, and i used my eletric mixer hehe. I made 2 quarts worth per its instructions. :D

WELP I did not get to the hot cocoa but i tired a few things...

One in my strawberry bananananananana smoothie, I used it instead of stealing my son's tang. It added a intresting 3 falvor for it, I think it worked well. I think this will make a decent ice cream, but prbly simulare to the "light" of "fat free" ice creams, since milk fat is the secret power packed ingredient for texture in real ice cream.

Two as a cup of milk... not realy very good, but I am not a fan of drinking a cup of milk so prbly a bad judge. :)

Three in my cocoa puffs. Not bad! I think I can get used to it. Its SIMULAR to milk, but you can tell the dif. How ever, driinking it the "chololate milk" thats left over, not nearly as good as the real thing. Thats fine... I prbly dont need all that choloate hheheh.

So thats what I know at this point. I am getting more and more confident that dairy free is what I have to be.

Vincent--I see you're having some fun experimenting! I don't drink it straight, either--but I was not much of a milk drinker to begin with. The smoothie sounds good--I've been meaning to try that. I do like the creamier consistancy, though. Not as watery as rice or almond. Try it the next time you bake something--good. Also dry as a "creamer" in hot beverages. And try the cocoa--so good! :D

Vincent, I'm glad you finally got to try the Vance's DariFree. And Happy Belated Birthday!

One thing that I have found is not to try drinking the DariFree straight unless it is very chilled.

I don't like it as chocolate milk either, but I do like the Blue Diamond Almond Milk Chocolate flavored drink. It is so smooth and chocolatey! That is what I drink for chocolate milk. The DariFree is really good for cooking/baking too.

Kasey's Mom, could you send me the recipe for ice cream made with DariFree? I would appreciate it. And does it work best in an ice cream maker?

I was thinking of ordering some of this but was gonna wait awhile. Today I happened to see it at the gluten-free store in my area so I bought some. I havent tried it yet but I couldnt believe the price on it! Its like a quart size carton and it was $9.99!!! :blink:

Does that sound right...or is the price way jacked up? How long does one of those cartons last? I wasnt expecting it to be a powder....at that price price I'm not gonna go crazy with the stuff.

One container makes six quarts. Un mixed, if stored in airtight contianer, they will last a year, mixed with water (use the hot water directions, IMO. I used a blender to mix), it will last a week.

For those that think its to pric, I just ordered a case,thats 36quarts of milk. With shippint/etc came to about $52.

$52/36 = about $1.45 per quart of milk. Or about $2.90 per 1/2 gallon. Thats about the same price as soy milk, and and the other milk alternatives that I have seen. The only real way to save money is to get "real" cows milk, but if you cant tolerate it, this is about the same price as the other choices... :)

Just somthing to think about.... :D

Meanwile... I'll just eat my cearl dry until it arrives! :(

Has anyone made the icecream yet??? There are several recipes and I'm not sure which one is best. They also say the oil is optional--and I wondered if someone had made it--is it better with or without? Or will I be the first one??

I still haven't gotten an ice cream maker yet! But I will. Vance's sent me a few ice cream recipes--I think one was strawberry and a couple others. Are these the ones you have? I know the ones I have use oil--

I just got tried the chocolate milk, I thought it tasted really good, but it is a bit too sweet for my tastes.

I got 6 quarts of the plain milk but I haven't tried them yet.

Okay, so I am hopefully going to make icecream with Vance's this weekend. Vincent--did you try any other flavors besides vanilla/chocolate? I wondered about trying to make a butter pecan or something. Although, I'll probably just start out with vanilla. Excited.... :D I do like the milk... It reminds me a bit of a protein shake...

I tried making yogurt with the plain "milk". LOL! The bacteria ate all the potato out of it, leaving behind the water. It was funny. I think I will try again.

OK - I am now sold! I am paying $2.99 per quart for my hazelnut milk - even with the shipping I will be saving money and if it tastes more like regular milk - all the better!!! It will have to wait until I get paid on Friday though...

I would really like some ice cream now...thank you.

I am such an idiot--I was in Wal Mart this morning, and meant to look at ice cream makers--I'm dying to try the Vance's recipe! Well, I forgot--I remembered only what was on my list--I guess I now have to write everything down :blink:
