Vegan Review: Soyatoo! Rice Whip

I can’t say that I’ve fully missed “whipped cream” since going vegan 13 years ago but there have been times when I’ve purchased Soyatoo! Soy Whip, which is a vegan Whipped Soy Topping in a can.

We usually buy it for Christmas/Yule morning to top our traditional Cinnamon Poached Pears on Homemade Belgian Waffles (recipe coming soon).  Like for most people, soy doesn’t agree with my stomach so for the rest of the year I simply go without.

But today, my gorgeous and brilliant husband arrived home from the co-op with a can of Soyatoo! Rice Whip.  I immediately put it to use by making a Morning Mocha.

Mocha
TIP: Handthrown mugs like this one, which is slightly pinched toward the rim, creates a perfect ledge for holding your whipped cream for the ultimate yummy experience. The ledge prevents the whipped cream from falling into the coffee/cocoa/mocha to provide even distribution with each sip.

Like Soyatoo! Soy Whip, you have to give it a hard shake while holding it upside down before spraying, or you’ll end up with a whippet.  It actually says on the package “For best results store upside down in your fridge” which shows they are aware and helping their customers to troubleshoot.

The Rice Whip really holds it’s consistency and shape while maintaining that ethereal quality you want in a canned whipped cream.  You know when you have whipped cream on your tongue and you gently press it to the roof of your mouth and it suddenly becomes a liquid?  Yeah, it does that.  Love it!  The texture is silky, slippy and creamy.

If you stir it into a hot beverage it actually mixes the way a plant-based milk would.  It makes your beverage creamier and delightful.

I really like the packaging, colors and design.  Nice mellow tasteful colors that complement one another.  A modern look with an approachable layout. Good and clear directions that are informative but do not talk down to the customer.

I like that it is a Product of Germany.  Germany is killin’ it in the vegan realm with their all vegan street, loads of products and vegan grocery store chain.

Dieters have no excuse not to devour this.  2 Tblsp. is only 10 calories, 1/2 a gram of fat, and 1 gram of carbs.  If you eat the entire can it is 330 calories, 16 1/2 grams of fat and 33 carbs.

I hate to even mention this because I’m crazy about this product but I must share that the flavor is sort of absent.  I believe this is more about rice milk than what Soyatoo! is doing.  I’ve always found rice milk to lack flavor which can be super helpful in recipes but in a whipped cream I want a little sweetness and vanilla flavor.  Just a hint so it doesn’t compete with what it is resting upon but some.

Morning Mocha
Morning Mocha – Start with a good cup of small batch fair-trade coffee, then mix in some vegan chocolate syrup and some almond milk. Stir it up! Then top with Soyatoo Rice Milk.
