The Herbs take:
I never used to be a fan of coconut. It’s okay for cooking, but on it’s own I didn’t tend to give it much thought.
Now that my eyes have been opened to trying new foods, I was excited to give this a go.
It’s thinner, and more refreshing than I expected, and although it doesn’t really do much for my morning cup of coffee I do enjoy drinking it on it’s own very much and it’s tasty on cereal too.
Before I went dairy-free, sometimes I would really fancy a glass of milk. In my mind, it would be creamy, delicious and really refreshing. However, I was always a little disappointed when this wasn’t the case.
This Coconut Dream milk fulfills that creamy and refreshing wish that I always wanted. It truly is a dream come true for me.
I’ve knocked off half a point, mainly because this isn’t an all-rounder milk replacement. It’s fantastic on it’s own though, especially alongside a spicy curry.
What… the actual f***?
This is hands down one of the best things that has ever passed my lips.
I have always had a fondness for coconut, remembering when my father would bring one home from the market, and we would poke a hole in it with a screwdriver and drink the odd-tasting milk with bits of husk floating in it. This is not that. This is 1000% better and literally a dream version of that coconut milk I remember.
It is smooth, sweet (but not too much), refreshing and light. I could definitely see myself accidentally drinking a whole bottle in one go.
However, it suffers when you try to add it to coffee. It is a little too thin for me to fully enjoy it in coffee, however the flavour is excellent, adding a slight coconutty hint.
Even though this doesn’t fully work in my coffee, it easily makes up for it as a stand alone drink.
