Since the turn of the decade (last week!), Danone has been quietly releasing several new dairy-free products under their Silk brand.

i just love this. i can now have cereal, i use it on fruit, in my cooking and baking. i saw that you had whipping cream. would love to see that. it has a richness to it, taste great. keep up the good work. the people that can not have dairy will think your their hero
I’ve been trying to give up dairy , but I love creamer in my coffee! Previous dairy free creamer tasted too sweet, but this was awesome! I would’ve never known this wasn’t my original creamer!!
OMG its amazing!
Wow I am amazed at how perfect this dairy free half and half is! Its rich and creamy, absolutely perfect in coffee and tea. I’ll be using this from now on!
Creamy like real cream yum
I originally was looking for lactose free half and half. None of my local grocery stores had it. I found this in my local Walmart. I love Alfredo sauce but I’m lactose intolerant. I’m also gluten sensitive. There’re pastas for that . This is an excellent substitute for making Alfredo sauce. It has the slightly sweet taste of cream. The consistency is just like half and half. It’s wonderful in coffee too! The best part is what it doesn’t have. It was a bit pricey but my gut thanks me.
Great taste. Good substitute for the dairy version but the coconut has me nervous about how harmful it can be.
The best plant based creamer
I’ve been on the hunt for a plant based creamer that’s would give my coffee the creamy consistency it was missing and this is definitely it! Hands down the best! The flavor is great too!!
This is so delicious! Yay for more dairy free options!
