Silk reformulated their unsweetened plain soy milk (in the greenish carton) and now it tastes like vanilla. This was my go to milk for savory applications such as biscuits and gravy. I feel like I am completely lost now. So, I ask you... what is your favorite unsweetened plain milk for savory stuff? Thank you!

if you can find it, the earth balance soy milk is good. i've only seen it at whole foods.

I use the Whole Foods 365 unsweetened soymilk for everything. I like it for drinking straight and I've never had an issue using it in savory recipes.

Same for me, but with unsweetened original almond. I also think the Silk unsweetened original pure almond would be fine, but I usually just have it on cereal when visiting my dad, so I can't say 100% if it'd work in savory recipes.

Trader Joe's Soy Essential, in the aseptic container. I used to drink Eden Soy, Original Extra, but it got too pricey. I really dislike anything with vanilla or that tastes like it has added sweetener.

Whole Foods brand unsweetened. Unsweetened almond milk still tastes sweet to me and Almond Breeze has kind of a weird aftertaste to me. We do like vanilla unsweetened Trader Joe's almond milk, but only for applications that can deal with the vanilla flavor and the milk still tastes sweet even though it's unsweetened.

I like the TJ's plain, unsweetened soy milk. It's good in tea and cereal, but it's also neutral enough for cooking.

Same here. I also like the TJ's refrigerated unsweetened soy milk (probably very best for flavor), and their fortified shelf stable.

This is my favorite. We don't do sweetened milks so what we usually buy is what we use on cereal and in smoothies. I also like almond breeze but the earth balance one is good.

Vitasoy always. Eden in a pinch (it's delightfully creamy, but expensive...so not really a "pinch"). Bonsoy if Josh gives me Bonsoy. It really is the tastiest.

I have yet to an almond one I like! They taste like what I imagine diet soy milk would taste life. And they kind of are that. In the US I gave up on non-dairy milk unless I could find Vitasoy. I just love the texture of Vitasoy, its neutral flavour, and consistency. And the fact that the unsweetened has lots of protein and isn't too low in fat to taste like almond milk.

Those coconut milks can go away.

Oh and rice milk is really nice in England! So much creamier.

I am bitter that Vitasoy stopped sales in the US. They were my favorite soymilk.

Happy to hear you say this, because my friend refuses to buy almond milk because she thinks it is higher in fat and calories than soy milk. Ummm...no?

I'm mostly an unsweetened Almond Breeze drinker, but I am also a big fan of TJ's unsweetened almond milk. I just never buy it because I never go to TJ's.

For soymilk, unsweetened Earth Balance. It's creamy and doesn't taste sweet or vanilla-y, so I imagine it would be good for cooking.
