One of my favourite non-dairy milks. Versatile and a great choice to give to people non keen on soya milk.
Whilst there was once just soya milk as an alternative to cow’s milk there’s been an explosion in non-dairy milks in the last couple of years. Hazelnut, almond, oat ,rice and now coconut milk are all now easily available. Koko market themselves as a good match for semi-skimmed milk with the same fat and calcium levels but how does it taste?
Don’t be put off by the word coconut. This is not the same stuff as the coconut milk that you get in tins. The coconut flavour is very mild in comparison, I could barely detect it. It works well in all manner of food and drink. You can even use it in tea and it doesn’t curdle in coffee. The comparison with semi-skimmed milk is a pretty good one. I also liked that Koko works equally well in both sweet and savoury cooking. I had good results using it in cakes and also in savoury sauces. I always look for fortified non dairy milks and Koko is great on this score with added calcium and those all important vitamins B12 and D2.

Koko Dairy Free Chocolate + Calcium 250ml
Bit too sweet for my palate and I wanted a stronger chocolate taste. Would imagine this would be popular with kids though. Tasted by Vegan Caroline
