I do prefer Silk Light Vanilla, but enjoy their regular Vanilla as well. Silk not only tastes good, the company also buys into wind power, donates to charity and recycling. Some may point out that Silk is a subsidary of a large dairy company Dean Foods. I say it is appropriate to support these vegan products, but you need to make up your own mind. (this line of reasoning though would lead you to never be able to shop at a grocery store again, since they support the meat and dairy industries .. etc.)
Honestly, I don't think soy milk is good on cereal.
I only like it in coffee, by itself, or to use in cooking / baking.
I looooove soy milk! Before I went vegetarian I was drinking soy milk, and only because I liked the taste better. I drink Silk Vanilla Soy Milk (the regular and light versions). You should try it, it's really good : ]
Oh ya, it tastes like regular milk to me but a little sweeter. I really like it with cereal.
I've had the Silk Vanilla soymilk and sort of liked it. Then I tried Rice Dream Vanilla Rice Milk and liked it even better. If you like the taste of milk but are looking for a nondairy replacement, if you want, you can give both of them a taste and see which one you like better.
My favorite is the Organic Valley Soymilk, plain or vanilla. I like Silk vanilla too, but I don't like Silk plain - it tastes too much like milk, actually! The Organic Valley ones are frothy and smooth and delicious. mmmmm...I love soymilk.
(I just decided to become a vegetarian again) My favorite brand is So Good. I'm not sure if they sell it everywhere. I live in Canada. I haven't tried the chocolate but the vanilla is great. I think I'll try out other brands to see if there's much of a difference.
If youre thinking of trying soy milk, I would buy two kinds. Either two different brands or two different flavors of the same brand. That way, you'll be comparing them against each other, and not comparing one against the cow's milk you're used to drinking.
Try to focus on finding one that tastes good, not necessarily one that tastes like cow's milk.
Also, try going to a health food store, many of them have small, individual sized containers. That way you don't have to worry about buying half a quart, tasting it, hating it and wondering what to do with the rest of it. Although you can use it in recipes.
I also love soymilk and drank it before going Vegan. My favorite is Silk Light Vanilla. I could drink it right out of the container. I also love Silk's Soy Nog. I got some yesterday and, because I have no self-control, I drank the whole thing in less than half an hour. My stomach did not thank me but...........yummy.
Oh yeah I forgot to say I also love the Light Chocolate one from Silk. I loooooooooove silk
Silk is definitely the best tasting one by far. Ive recently been buying natura brand though, it's not bad either I like their original and chocolate flavors. If you want vanilla flavored go with silk though because most other vanilla flavored brands just taste funny, imo.
I never drank cows milk before going vegan because I hated the taste, so I rarely drink soy milk plain, but I love it in lattes and mochas, for baking and making hot chocolate. Try Silk Nog for the holidays, although it's not fortified.
I prefer chocoalte almond milk to chocolate soy milk.
I don't drink soy milk, but I use it for coffee and cereal. I always buy Natura light, because it doesn't have the soy aftertaste like some other brands do. I tried some other brands in my coffee, and you taste the soy, but not with this brand.
It's not as if I don't like the taste the soy, it's just I don't like my coffee tasting like it.
I like to buy Soy Nice chocolate flavour once in a while as a treat.
That's funny because my omni boyfriend will now only drink Silk soymilk in his coffee, (and cafe mochas) he says his coffee tastes so much better with it rather than cow's gunk, but yet he won't try soymilk on it's own (mixed with chocolate syrup, yum) or in cereal yet (??)
