Alpro Soya custard and cream

I was approached a while ago by Alpro Soya to see if I wanted some of their cream and custard sent out to try cooking various products with, and as they fit in nicely with the needs of my grandson then I was very happy to give it a go. We use the cream regularly as I quite like it poured over cakes or pies, and I use it in my ice cream recipes.

they say
 Alpro's cream and custard contain much less saturated fat than their dairy
counterparts as well as being rich and creamy in taste with a silky smooth
texture. Whether it be trifle, Christmas pud or chocolate log they can all
be made lighter!

Alpro cream alternative has around 45% less saturated fat than standard
single cream yet can be used in all of the same ways, so you can still
indulge over the holidays.

They sent me various recipes, using the custard in trifle, my lot dont like cold custard, a fish and leek pie but I dont like white sauce (we are very fussy in this, but they did send me one that sounded yummy -

The finished product

I rolled them in cocoa powder, and very nice they are too. These were very pleasant and they will be great for a Christmas treat.

This was a review post with products being supplied by Alpro, but the findings remain my own.
