Silk’s Dairy Free Heavy Whipping Cream Review (Vegan) + 3 Recipes



(theatrical music)
L: hey guys welcome to make it dairy-free I
am Larisha A: I am Andrew and today L: (squeal) A: we are L: sorry
sorry! I’m excited!
A: so obviously someone’s excited about the
new product we have in front of us it’s
been on the market for roughly about a
week or so and it is the new dairy-free
yes you heard it dairy-free heavy
whipping cream from Silk. L: so our friends
over in Europe have had from what we
know heavy whipping cream alternatives
for a couple years now but here in the
States we have had to use our creativity
a little bit with things like coconut
cream or cashews or silken tofu so this
is the first product that is being
marketed as heavy whipping cream to hit
the States so we are very excited A: we
found these bad boys at our local
Walmart but to be honest with you like
it doesn’t seem like it’s like all
throughout a few stores I think it might
be peppered here and there we did hop on
the website to see if maybe like the
store locator would kind of you know hit
some hot spots for us on where this
would be located but that was
unsuccessful so L: like it’s not even on
the website yet AL no not even a little bit
L: yeah
not the product isn’t on the website yet
like that’s that’s how I new this bad
boy is hopefully you know at some point
we’ll find it in some other stores soon
and be able to put that on our on our
blog or just out there social media to
help out when we bought it it was four
dollars in twenty eight cents which is
pretty comparable to what we’ve looked
up and what we remember dairy brands
bean so we thought that that was a great
price point and we’re not talking about
like store-bought brands obviously those
are a little bit cheaper but like
organic or even just like name-brand
heavy whipping cream this is like right
on point roughly A: yeah like
L: which is which is nice because I feel
like always like the vegan products are
always like sky-high compared to like
some of the other things so A: run ya pockets a bit
L: yeah so this is nice this product is
actually you know made up of seven
ingredients it looks like and I think
that is something to mention because if
you’re someone who doesn’t really like
processed stuff not only is it only seven
ingredients
it actually has things on the back that
you know I can pronounce which is a
pretty stellar L: yeah that’s nice, um we also want to let
you know that we did go ahead and reach
out to Silk and they confirm just like
all of their other products in their
line that this is also vegan even though
it doesn’t say so on the carton it is
vegan and just so our allergen friendly
friends know we always try to include
that information as well the only top
eight allergen on here is coconut A: so to
put these to the test we’re gonna
basically do four different type of ways
to test this our very first test is
going to be testing the consistency to
what we would feel like a typical heavy
cream would be so we’re gonna pour it
out into a cup and pretty much look at
the texture and the thickness and kind
of go from there
L:Yup and then we’re also going to be testing
out three different recipes that we
frequently made before we went vegan so
recipes that used heavy cream that we
made a lot A: I think it’s fair to say that
the recipes we chose are recipes that
everyone typically would make with a
heavy cream we’re gonna be doing a whip
topping so a whipped cream we’re gonna
be doing that we’re also gonna be doing
a chicken alfredo a chicken alfredo L: vegan
A: version of this you know really honestly
just testing the creamy sauce portion of
that but we’re also gonna make a full-on
dish you know you can’t shortchange it
and what’s the last one caramel
I think L: caramel sauce A: alright so we’re going to do a caramel sauce L: so which one
are you most excited about like which
one of the recipes that we’re making A: I
don’t know
I like whipped cream I love caramel and
I’m really missing that genuine chicken
alfredo I think we have some stuff that
comes close but that alfredo sauce was
just something you can’t mimic that
easily so still testing that out to be
like perfect L: Yea I’m excited about that too but I think I am most
excited probably about the whipped
topping just cuz before we went vegan
and we made like a cool whip type of product
we used it in so many different things
from like frostings to ice cream to like
different things like that that I’m
excited about
yeah you know trying to see if it will
mimic it even more than the coconut
cream one that we’ve done before A: okay
that’s fair alright so I say let’s let’s
start out with that consistency test
L: let’s do it A: all right let’s go
L: oh oh yeah this it’s not sponsored
we bought this with our money not
sponsored at all A: I mean it y’all want
sponsor us like I’m I’m down ya mean.
L: (sarcastic) Silk is the best heavy cream product on
the market A: don’t say that L: (laughing) just joking A: don’t do that L: but seriously
Silk sponsor us A: what’s good L: but for this
video it’s not sponsored A: nope. you ready?
L: yep let’s do this first up the
consistency test we wanted to see how
much this product mimic traditional
heavy cream not only was the consistency
spot-on with what we remember but it was
neutral in smell and taste too it was a
huge win
the very next test we’re going to be
doing is the whipped topping honestly if
this product couldn’t whip we wouldn’t
even waste our time with the other test
as this one is essential back when we
used to use traditional heavy cream in
order to make this whipped topping it
was put together with three ingredients
in chilled bowl and a whisk from here
you would just go after it until stiff
peaks would form with this product be
whisked it until stiff peaks would form
which took about five to six minutes and
then we over beat it to see what happens
at about the eight to ten minute mark
the product started to break down but
overall it was a success
next up is
Alfredo who doesn’t think of Alfredo
when thinking of heavy cream and of
course we wanted to show you a savory
dish – this vegan chicken alfredo cooked
up amazingly it needs just eight
ingredients it was hands-down the best
alfredo recipe we’ve tried one note is
that with the oil in the cream butter
and the cheese after this dish sits for
a bit it does appear quite oily so it’s
best served immediately next up was the
attempt to make caramel sauce while we
have successfully made caramel sauce
without heavy cream nothing yet has
compared to the traditional classic
sauce we used to make a super easy
caramel sauce
with every cream and we wanted to
recreate the same recipe with this after
bringing these five ingredients together
all I could say was oh my god
thanks so much for checking out this
review of the new silk dairy-free heavy
whipping cream
overall it’s a resounding yes from us to
go try this product for yourself see our
post for the recipes that we showed here
