I've been having a clear out in my food cupboards, pulling out all the things that have been pushed to the back to come back to another day because I wasn't sure what to do with them or because I was unsure if we'd like them. I came across a carton of Provamel Rice Coconut Drink that has been lurking in there for a while and decided to bite the bullet and give it a try !
It is described as "a light, refreshing drink made from ground coconuts mixed with rice drink and water". The official blurb says: "Blending the pure taste of coconut with the subtle sweetness of rice creates a delicious drink that tastes great served either hot or cold."
I decided to use it in cooking too, as a replacement for milk, which was totally successful. I used an equal quantity of Provamel in place of milk in the Banana & Peanut Butter Muffins recipe that I tried earlier in the week and didn't notice any difference.
Provamel's Rice-Coconut drink is 100% plant-based, low in fat and contains no added sugar. 100ml contains 62 calories, 12.5g of carbs (of which 6.5g sugar) and 1g of fat (of which 0.8g saturates) making it a light option, whether or not you need a lactose-free diet. It can be drunk on its own but we'd be more likely to use it in smoothies or cooking as an alternative to milk.
