Expert Tips

Soy foods, such as soy milk, may contain soy protein and isoflavones. These two components show promise in lowering blood cholesterol and reducing risk of heart disease.

For Raspberry-Chocolate Cupcakes, omit the vanilla and the espresso powder. Add 2 teaspoons raspberry extract with the soymilk. Serve with a few fresh raspberries.
