Monday Review: Earth Balance


This Monday Review is sponsored by Earth Balance natural spreads.

Finding a "non-dairy butter" for baking and spreading is no easy feat. It was important to me to find something our entire family liked. As a matter of fact, I wanted a product that would fool everyone. My non-dairy chocolate chip cookies needed to taste just as good as anyone's cookies. The butter on my table for our dinner rolls needed to taste just like any other butter. Our non-dairy butter would be my little secret.

Well, I found the right product and I can't keep it a secret. I've used Earth Balance spread for years, ever since my son outgrew his soy allergy. Our local grocery store just recently began carrying Earth Balance sticks. This gives me another option in baking*. And now, Earth Balance has come out with a soy-free version of their spread. I've never been able to recommend a soy-free, dairy-free butter alternative. Until now. It's arrived and it tastes good. No wonder it got the 2009 Best Chef's Taste Award.

Check out all the Earth Balance products as well as some great recipes.

*Fleischman's Unsalted sticks are also dairy-free.

We used to use Smart Balance Light, but it is awful for baking...not enough fat. We switched over to Earth Balance last Christmas when we needed to hurriedly find safe butter to provide MIL with so she could make cookies. It's great!

I like it because it has a saltier-nuttier flavor...whipped is better for spreading, I'll have to try the new stuff that is mentioned!

Our whole world opened up when Earth Balance released the soy-free version. It is VERY yummy and bakes very well. We use it all the time on toast, pancakes, and in all our baking items - cakes, cupcakes, etc.

I know a little about the earth balance non-dairy butter. I think it will be very useful because most of cooked foods were using butter. I'd like to see some recipes using it.
