win a free container of silken creations!


Time for another contest, kids.
I remember when it was hard to find brown rice in a grocery store, so I'm extra tickled to see the number of innovative new vegan products lining the shelves these days. One of them is Silken Creations, pre-flavored in dark chocolate, strawberry and vanilla.  This silky smooth soy product is a no-brainer for desserts, mousses and smoothies. You can access recipe ideas on Nasoya's handy database. (Lately, I've been making a lot of vegan ice cream, so can't wait to try Silken Creations as a base. )

Win a coupon for a FREE container of Silken Creations.
Leave a comment and tell me how you would like to use this product. Be sure I can contact you via e-mail. I'll randomly choose a winner in the next few days.

I'd probably go the traditional route and use this to make some sort of mousse pie. I really want to try it!

herbstsonne said...

I would love to use to to make cheesecake!

Jamie said...

Definitely chocolate silk pie!

Vegiegail said...

Oooh, I'd love to use this product to make a shortcake! I've never had vegan shortcake!

RachelBethany said...

I would make a dark chocolate peanut butter silk pie or cheesecake! I love anything with those two combined.

Morgan said...

oh my goodness!! I can't believe how veg-friendly the groceries are getting these days (I'm speaking relatively, of course, to their state a mere 3 years ago)!

Now I can finally make some vegan deserts :) I needed the extra help, as I'm a klutz in the kitchen.

Anne said...

I'd go simple and make pudding.

Can't wait for the new book!

Becca said...

I think I'd throw it over a homemade graham cracker-type crust; add a little chocolate shavings, fresh strawberry slices (having sat overnight in some grand marnier, perhaps), and fresh mint slices; and nibble at it slowly while sitting on my roof on a warm summer day. Yum!

Sally said...

Mmm either a smoothie or right out of the container!

radioactivegan said...

The pie on the front one looks too good to pass up!

Lorena said...

I'd probably do a cool, creamy pie with Soyatoo topping and fruit. YUM!

tahinitoo said...

I would make ice cream and then make a milkshake.

Cindy said...

chocolate peanut butter pie!

the new rudy's said...

I wold probably use it to make my diabetic mother-in-law who eats waaay too many sweets, a healthier version of chocolate silk pie for her birthday. Granted, there is still sugar, but oh so much better for her!

BB said...

I'd eat it straight out of the container, I'm on travel for work right now in Charleston, WV and finding vegan deserts is a chore!

aimee said...

Ooh, Strawberry cheesecake!

Carrie said...

I would love to make a pie...just like that one on the chocolate container! Not the most inventive, but it sound soooo good!

Kelli said...

I've really missed creme brulee since I went vegan. I think I could come up with a pretty good facsimile with this product! Of course, there could also be Key Lime pie... parfaits... vegan "yogurt" or pudding... oh, the possibilities!

SShoemaker said...

I would love to try the strawberry version to help recreate a healthier strawberry milkshake! Yummmm!

Kerry said...

A pie. Definitely a pie. Or maybe a smoothie....something delicious!

Vegyogini said...

I'm sure I'd want to try it straight up the first time.

affectioknit said...

I'd definitely make a chocolate pie with a homemade graham cracker crust...

usedtothink said...

mmm chocolate silk pie

VeganDawn said...

Chocolate flavored silken tofu? Honestly, I'd probably eat it out of the container in the kitchen, at least the first time. Yum!

Amey said...

mmmm yummy!
I guess I'd probably make some pudding pops for summer time!

Zucchini Breath said...

I would make a layered cheese cake. I have this idea that has been bouncing around in my head...

cornfieldsandcookies said...

Use the vanilla to make a mousse and serve it with chunks of yellow cake and berries. I don't even know if any stores around here will sell it?

Alex said...

definitely ice cream! especially if it ever actually gets hot

buffalodick said...

I will definitely want your cook book! I will need a signed copy- E-mail me at buffalodickdy@yahoo.com as to how I can get this.... We've been together awhile, you know!

Catherine said...

Chocolate-strawberry tofu mousse pops, I think! (Thanks for running the contest!)

craftyvegan said...

I would use my container of silken creations to make Cappuccino Pie, recipe found on their website.

Little Girl's Mom said...

I think I would eat it straight up. It looks great.

jenny352@msn.com said...

i bet they's work well in post-work out protein smoothies.

be'ershevaboheme6 said...

That strawberry one is DEFINITELY screaming strawberry "cheese"cake...my mouth is watering already...

Carla said...

Yum! Chocolate pudding pie, dairy-free... awesome.

sweetkaroline said...

I would totally make a ridiculously decadent banana, dark chocolate, and coconut smoothie/shake!

Lauren said...

I will definitely use this to make ice cream in my brand new ice cream maker!!

Molly G said...

Vegan Cheesecake! I've never made one.

LK Sisters said...

Wow, such a neat product! I would love to use this in graham cracker cream pie squares, frozen like ice-cream pie! Banana slices layered on top would be a nice addition.

wingraclaire said...

Even though I love all the comments about eating it straight from the package, I'd like to make a parfait with fruit and granola. Sounds much better than yogurt!!!

Krista said...

I would be all over their Chocolate Turtle Cheesecake!!!! Pecans? Yes please! wow. Speechless.

Shannon said...

I want to make fudgsicles!

Regina said...

I'd make a cheesecake or a french silk pie, and maybe share it with my family :)

Emily said...

I'd make a cheesecake (I need to use up some FYH cream cheese) or just eat it straight out of the package! Mmmmm :)

VeganCraftastic said...

I'd totally go the parfait route!

kryztene said...

I would love to try Silken Creations! I think I would make a berry parfait with it. Thanks for the chance!

Preachawoman said...

I would make pies , "cheese" cake , puddings.... endless possibilities. Loving the different flavors!

katie monster said...

I would use the dark chocolate to make a chocolate mousse pie, most likely with a graham-cracker crust. I'm sure I could put the other flavors to use somehow, as well!

Erin said...

I'm pretty boring. I'd just like to make a strawberry parfait for my omnivore parents.

Phoebe Miriah Kirby said...

I would make a banana cream pie or a banana pudding. I'm bonkers over bananas.

TJF said...

I've always wanted to try the silken tofu pudding pie as well. Though maybe just pudding, ala Bittman!

Erin said...

Not usually one for desserts, I'd love to try this produce in a chocolate mousse!

Danielle said...

I like to blend it with melted chocolate chips and peanut butter, then I pour it into a pie shell. Stick it in the 'fridge until it firms up and voila!

magidraki said...

Oh, definitely a chocolate pie :)

Nicole said...

I would love to try this hot like chocolate fudge!

The Vegan Snorkeler said...

That silken tofu is begging to be made into some ice cream!

Liz said...

Summer's approaching/here already, depending on where you are, so I'd probably go the smoothie/ice cream route!

Cafe Cyan said...

I like your idea of making ice cream, but I'd probably go with a pie...maybe a frozen pie? Yum!

nick said...

I need the vanilla one to devour directly from the container...I've craved a pudding substitute for years.

Amanda said...

I had the chocolate for breakfast. I made a chocolate cherry vegan ice cream out of it a couple of weeks ago. So good!
