Our taste-testers were immediate fans of Rebel Kitchen’s dairy-, chemical- and emulsifier-free “mylk” in chocolate and chai. Both coconut milk-based drinks were rich, refreshing and surprisingly tasteful.

Check the ingredients; both contain organic coconut milk, filtered water and date nectar as a sweetener. The chocolate flavor adds organic cacao. Chai goes further, adding turmeric and cardamom to cacao.

The labeling advises, “Bits of coconut goodness in your mylk? No worries – just shake it up.”

Mylk is $3 per 11-ounce carton at Whole Foods Markets and some health-food stores. Availability will expand to mainstream supermarkets soon. A coffee flavor will join the lineup this week.
