Haha! I don't think I want to try it after reading what you wrote

To be honest though, I don't like stuff that's a substitute for the real thing. Maybe there are exceptions but I can't think of any. Come to think of it I don't like milk at all. I never did but my parents made me drink it until I grew up!

I use unsweetened almond milk, but I don't drink it. I think it seems rich on cereal and I like that. Tried making dumplings for stew (Bisquick) with it. They we're "sinkers"!

I watched a youtube video how the commercial almond milk is made. Not very many almonds in it at all, a ridiculous number of almonds per half gallon. If you make your own you use lots of almonds. I have had homemade almond milk and it tastes nothing like the commercial brands. I always wondered how a half gallon of commercial almond milk is so inexpensive compared to making your own.

I like ice cold whole fat milk. Sometimes I will add heavy cream to a gallon of milk to get it to taste like the milk I had growing up.

i'm not much of a fan of any of the milk substitutes. My nutritionist wants me to stay away from dairy because it causes inflammation so I use almond milk that I make myself when it works. I think that soy milk tastes the best to drink, but not as good as cow's milk or my personal favorite goats milk.

I am not a fan of cow milk substitutes. I can understand if you have allergies and are trying to find something acceptable . If I couldn’t have milk in my tea, I would drink it without.

I am not and never have been a big milk drinker. We used nonfat milk, cheese, and cottage cheese. Then a few years ago my Dr. recommended I take the Vitamin D3. I did a bit of research and found with all the use of sun screen and non-fat milk products people were Vitamin D deficiencies. So I started using the 2% milk, and use regular cheeses, and cottage cheese. I get at least 15 -20 minutes of sunshine a day (in So. CA that's not hard to do). My last bone density test showed a major improvement. So I am definitely not looking for milk substitutes any more.

I rarely drink milk products but I haven’t met a cheese I don’t like. Having said that, I have discovered that dairy is not my friend now that I am in my fifties...I just purchased an oat creamer for my coffee and put 1 tablespoon at 10 calories in my cup in the morning.
