Soy Milk

I usually make my own ranch dressing. Is soy milk better to use than regular skim milk? In the past ive used skim, but I read that skim has about 13c vs soy has about 4 per cup. Let me know what you guys think.

Soy would be the one to use since skim milk is banned.

Speaking of Soy Milk - every container I read at the supermarkets seem to be high in carbs.....and quite frankly, I am a little sceptical in buying since I wonder how the taste is....probably better off with real cream mixed with splenda and water for my cereal..huh.

Slender Soy is sugar free and yummy! It is the sugar free version of flavored soy milk made by West Soy. I've tried the chocolate and the vanilla. Just a few carbs per cup, so a yummy, sweet-tasting treat. I think that cream would make a better ranch dressing, though.

If you mix 1/3 cup heavy cream(2.5g carbs) and 2/3 cup water, it makes the perfect "milk" for dressings

You must look for unsweetened soy milk--EdenSoy make one that has only 1 net carb per cup. Some brands will say plain, but they are still high in carbs. Personally, I like soy milk a lot. Would rather use it than cream which has so many calories. I have to watch my calories and carbs.

1 net carb Soy Milk

I use Westsoy Organic Unsweetened Soy milk. It comes in a box on the shelf (at Kroger's). It only has 1 net carb per CUP!!!! And it tastes great. I made SF jello mousse with 1 cup water, 1/2 cup cream and 1/2 cup of this Soy milk, and it was really delicious. I also use it 1/2 with cream in just about any recipe calling for cream, to lower the carb count. So far I've enjoyed it in cream of mushroom soup and tomato basil soup. Using it can really lower the carb count of recipes calling for cream.
EnJOY!

Cgarza,
I meant West Soy---I always get those brands mixed up. I tried to make pudding once with it and it didn't set up. Do you think that I could make pudding the same way you make the mouse with water, cream and soy milk? Love it on LC granola.

Pudding with Soy

Yes, I think pudding would set up just fine using the LC soy milk and some cream.
For the Jello, I just followed the directions on the box, using the first cup hot water, stirring it up a minute or so, then adding about 1/2 cup soy milk and 1/2 cup cream. Delicious!
Let me know how your pudding turns out if you try itt. Good luck!
