Taste great, but it curdles...
I tried this for a healthier choice not because I need to so I have the luxury of being picky and well it taste amazing, visually it is unappealing
Tastes like real cream!!
I have tried so many non-dairy creamers and nothing compares to this! I takes like regular half-and-half. So happy to have found this!
It curdles in my coffee
I’m modifying my diet as I have been diagnosed with SIBO. I like my morning coffee and I’m a cream & sugar kind of guy, but I need to stay away from lactose and the fructose in nondairy creamers. I had hoped Silk 1/2&1/2 was going to be the perfect alternative to regular 1/2&1/2 or the other nondairy creamers. It tastes fine but it curdles in my coffee which is unappealing. Or do I just have a bad quart of it??
Tastes like my old half-and-half and it’s dairy free yay! Love it! Thank you so much!
I have been looking for a dairy free coffee creamer with healthier ingredients. I am so glad I found this. It gives my coffee a rich creamy flavor without any of the guilt! I will also be using this in recipes.
Please keep making this!!!
I am so pleased with the flavor and texture of this dairy-free half and half. I was so surprised there’s no added sugar. I used it in an enchilada recipe that calls for heavy cream and they turned out delicious. My kids and I love it with peaches. I also have a question. Can I whip this to make whipped cream?
Response from Go Dairy Free
I don’t believe this one will whip, but they have a heavy cream that does whip – https://www.godairyfree.org/product-reviews/silk-dairy-free-heavy-whipping-cream
Totally enjoying my coffee again guilt free. So rich and creamy, no funky taste , just delicious! Please don’t stop making this!!
I’ve been looking for a creamer that’s not gummy or weird, and doesn’t have a ton of oil in it. This fits the bill. Very smooth and clean tasting. Definitely worth a shot.
Great overall except not Gluten free?
I really like the taste and it is nice and creamy. It even leaves a little froth on top. What I don’t like is that it doesn’t state if the oats are gluten free!! Be aware of that! I am sensitive to it, but doesn’t do anything immediate to me so will use this one up, but won’t buy again because of the possible gluten content.
Better than trader Joe’s oats coconut creamer
Trader Joe is so far away and when I go I would get 8 pints but when they were out I searched and searched and searched and spent lots of money and lots of time. But I found oat coconut creamer by silk taste exactly the same finally. But I still have a difficultFinding it even at Walmart. Enjoy
