Alicia de los Reyes, A Nice Cuppa – While visiting some friends and drinking their coffee I discovered a lovely coffee mix-in: Trader Joe’s Soy Milk Creamer. Usually I stay away from soy in my coffee unless I’ve been watching PETA videos, but I decided to try it. Guess what? Deliciousness. Not soy-like at all. It was quite sweet, though, and that’s what inspired me to try it in my other favorite morning beverage, English Breakfast tea. Shazam! I was a convert. It reminded me of the kind of tea made with boiling leaves and milk and water in a big pot with about sixteen cups of sugar. The tea was strong enough to hold up to the sweetness; herbal and more delicate black teas would taste like flavored milk with this stuff stirred in. Chai would be excellent.
So, next time you’re entertaining vegan guests, consider pouring a bit of the soy stuff in your own cuppa. You will be pleasantly surprised.
