I get a lot of questions about THRIVE sour cream:

  • Does it taste just like fresh?
  • Is it as good as the THRIVE instant milk?
  • What recipes have you used it in?
  • How do I mix it?

Taste
Well, here are my thoughts:  No, it doesn’t taste just like fresh sour cream like the THRIVE instant milk tastes just like real milk.   It does have a slightly different taste to it.  However, it is good.  I have eaten it as a topping on my tacos, nachos, quesadillas etc.

Use
However, my favorite places to use it are in recipes.  Recipes like this banana bread or this Stroganoff or these lava brownies.  It also works well in fruit and veggie dips.

Tips
I don’t like the recipe on the can.  If you want a cup of sour cream, I suggest doing the following:

  • Add one cup THRIVE sour cream powder to a bowl
  • Add 2 T. HOT water as whisk until smooth.
  • Continue to add HOT water 2 Tablespoons at a time until you’ve reached a consistency that is just slightly more runny than you’d like.  (I usually end up adding about 8-10 Tablespoons water).
  • Chill for at least 1 hour (it will thicken as it chills)
