Description of product: Flavoured soya milk drinks, available in strawberry, banana and chocolate. From the ingredients, it seems as though it is vegan, although not stated on the packaging, so please check!
Missing out on calcium and vitamin b12 can be of concern when entering into a dairy free diet, whether for reasons of intolerance or though becoming vegan. Fortified soya drinks are a good way to get what you need in the way of calcium and b12. However, if, like me, you don’t enjoy the taste of milk, a glass of soya is out of the question! That’s why I thought I’d try some of these flavoured milks from Asda. It is also useful to know if you are thinking of extending the vegan beyond Veganuary.
So far I have only tried the banana one. Banana is probably my favourite milkshake flavour, so I was excited to try it.
The banana flavour is quite artificial, but it does have a generally nice taste to it, and I can imagine that children would enjoy this one. It is pretty sweet also. The texture is quite thick, which I was surprised about with it being soya milk based. Unfortunately, it does have quite a strong flavour of soya milk, which made it less enjoyable for me. However, on the whole, I was quite happy with the product overall. I would buy it again, and am looking forward to trying the strawberry one next!
