Almond Milk

Hi--What'd the take on Almond Milk? I am thinking to start substituting it in some parts of my diet for Cow Milk.

Thanks!

Re: Almond Milk

I love it. Make sure you get the unsweetened kind, though, or you'll be taking in a lot of carbs. I personally like the Almond Breeze brand unsweetened vanilla flavor.

I've used it anywhere I might use milk -cereal, smoothies, refreshing beverage, etc. Like I said, I think it's pretty good stuff.

Re: Almond Milk

You can also make your own fairly easily, especially if you have a good blender. Soak some almonds, run through blender, drain with cheese cloth, nut milk sack or possibly coffee filter.

Re: Almond Milk

I'm not a huge fan. I find the taste plus the mouth feel of it to be...ehhh.

My favorite milk substitute is hemp milk. (www.livingharvest.com WFS) It is slightly thicker than most other nut/seed milks. Personally, I just find it more palatable.
