According to Silk, Silk's Heart Health soymilk is the first soymilk in the US to offer both soy protein, and Phytosterols (a naturally sourced plant protein). So it sounds healthy, alright, but does it taste good? That's always the million dollar question around here. I'm always fighting a battle with my DH to get him to eat more natural and organic foods, so if it doesn't taste good, it will be a losing battle.
We had tried Silk's chocolate soymilk in the past, but never the Heart Health, so I was curious. It comes in Vanilla flavor. Evil me, I let my DH
I decided the next test would be to cook with it: I tried with from the box mashed potatoes (hey, it was late at night!) and a cheesey hamburger helper dish. Both came out perfect, with no vanilla aftertaste. This was good, because I don't really want to be buying two separate milks - my fridge isn't that big! I've also baked with it, and used it to make a cream of soup. I didn't have any problems, and seriously, could not tell the difference in taste.
The color is a little different from regular milk - it's a little more beige, so if you're trying to sneak it past your kids, you might have a little trouble. (who's to say you can't make silly milk and add in a tiny drop of food coloring, if your kids aren't sensitive to dyes? *wink*)
