Pacific organic soy milk (2 ingredients only)

pacific soy

Just a quick post introducing a no-nonsense, 2-ingredient organic soy milk that I found in Singapore. This product is from the USA.

I didn’t buy this because it is organic, but mainly because it is made with only 2 ingredients: water and soy! I enjoyed the clean taste of this milk. All other brands of soy milk that you can find in our supermarkets here in Singapore often contain some kind of a stabiliser, which is a pity as locally produced soy milk is so much cheaper. The stabilisers alters the taste greatly as well.

I found that this organic unsweetened soy milk by Pacific was cheapest at the coffee and cake place called Cedele. It was below SGD $6.

I miss buying almond, coconut and many other non-dairy beverages for below $3 in Australia!

If you are drinking brands of soy milk that are not organic and have some stabilisers in them, please don’t panic or get anxious. This post is not here to make you feel that way. I certainly don’t eat or drink this way all the time. Sometimes I come across products that I try and they really excite me and I share it with everyone here just to let you guys know that these are good.

Quick tip!

If you are on a budget, here is what you can do. The next time you are tempted to buy a coffee from a major chain cafe, spend that cash on a product like this instead. For about the same cost, you can use a packet like this to jazz up your coffee for about a week. Sometimes, I keep it for about 10 days.

Life is not meant to be perfect so relax, smile and make the best out of it! Being mindful about small decisions like these can make a big difference to your life and health! 🙂

Organic Matcha Soy (no sugar or anything else!)

ms3

Matcha fans who are also health conscious, this one is for you!

I found a new brand of instant matcha soy drink that has two ingredients – matcha powder and soy powder!

I am thrilled to share it with all of you living in or visiting Singapore!

Anyone who loves Matcha would understand how difficult it is to get dairy-free matcha milk in Singapore (and in many other countries too).

The box contains 20 sachets and makes about 190ml each. Not much, but enough to satisfy the craving for matcha in a conscious manner.

This is what the prepared drink looked like.  I was half-expecting that vibrant green colour that we often see in pictures of matcha milk, but it turned out to be dull green. But then again, if it is all-natural, I am really not concerned about colour. This just helps to reaffirm that artificial colouring plays a huge part in the food industry and it is quite scary to think about how much of these chemicals we have been consuming for so long (knowingly or unknowingly).

You can definitely taste the matcha and the soy in there. If you throw in some non-dairy creamer and some sugar, it will taste similar to the version in Starbucks, but a much smaller portion. I would personally prefer a stronger matcha taste but  having said that, this might be a good alternative to have on hand for those who are really doing their best to eat and drink as clean as possible.

The only drawback is the cost. The original cost of this product is $38. I got it at a discount and it was $28.50. I was seriously considering if I should buy it. But I realised that it is a rare find – instant + two ingredients + organic + nothing unknown going into my body = worth having on hand when the matcha craving hits.

I also told myself that I can get only 4 drinks in Starbucks for around the same cost (in Singapore at least), so having 20 drinks on hand is not too bad. I guess this will help me with portion size as well. Besides, at the discounted rate that I bought it, it is less than $1.50 per portion.

I will find a way to make my own matcha milk at some point (I have a great idea for it too!) but for now, this should keep me satisfied.

Hope it helps you too!
