That’s right, soy has eternal life. This stuff was originally dumpstered by some Food Not Bombs folks; they found an entire crate of it. It was a month past the expiration date, but when we opened it up and smelled/tasted it, it was pure and sweet and perfect, so we made a vat of cream of broccoli soup!

There was a bunch left over, so they kindly gave me a lil carton. I didn’t open it up for a couple more weeks, bringing the grand “expiration” total up to a month and a half past date, but when I tested the stuff it was exactly the same: perfect. I searched for a dessert recipe that involved soy creamer, and I came up with…

double chocolate muffins. (Low-fat, too!)

1 c. whole wheat flour [not pastry]
1/2 c. all purpose flour
1/2 t. salt
1 c. powdered sugar (didn’t have it, so I used 3/4 c. sugar)
1/4 c. unsweetened cocoa powder
1 t. baking soda
1/3 c. dairy free chocolate chips (go for more!)

5 T. applesauce
1 T. balsamic white vinegar (used apple cider vinegar)
1 t. vanilla extract
1 c. Silk plain soy creamer

Preheat the oven to 350F. Grease a muffin pan.
Mix the dry ingredients (flour through choco chips) in a bowl.
In a separate, smaller bowl, mix the wet ingredients. Pour those into the dry’s and stir until just combined. Don’t overmix, because that makes fat-free goods tough. Fill your muffin cups full so you have nice big muffins, and bake for 20 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean. Let cool on a rack.
(Made 8 muffins for me.)

Zombie creamer freaks me out some…


  1. I’m glad you came across my recipe!

  2. Oh my gosh! I’ve also found that soymilk lasts a really long time – even after its expiration date. I wonder why…

  4. zomg, haha! this post was soooo funny to me! we took some soy creamer camping to make ‘ice cream in a bag’ vegan stylee, and never got around to it. So, sorta non-refrigerated soy creamer notwithstanding, I made ‘ice cream’ anyway, and it was great!!! those muffins look super good!
