Oh My! Please don't go back to Cow's Milk. Almond Milk is the best thing in Dairy ever made. It's very versatile. You can use it in place of Cow's Milk. I'm lactose intolerant. I really don't care for Soy Milk unless it's Vanilla but most times I get Alomond Milk. I use Almond Milk in Cereal, Smoothies, to make Waffles, Coffee. It's endless!

With my high cholesterol - Almond Milk had been a "life" saver =)! Not a fan of soy - but I use the Almond milk in my cereal, smoothies and everyday cooking. I made pancakes with it last weekend and they turned out fluffy and yummy!

Thanks for all the ideas. I didn't know you could cook with it so may try that the next time we cook something that requires milk.
So you can actually add it (not the vanilla flavored version of course) to mashed potatoes too?
I am lactose intolerant. It is the same price as lactose-free milk and is a different choice. I drink it straight as part of my Spark food plan. The one I just bought is 40 calories/cup and the carbs are much lower than cow's milk.

My daughter used it in muffins yesterday. She said she couldn't taste any difference.

I use it instead of cow's milk in everything. One thing to remember about almond, soy, rice etc. milk is that some use sweetners for the flavored varieties. I use Blue Diamond which comes in an unsweetened vanilla flavor. (The vanilla is subtle enough that I made mashed potatoes recently with it and no one noticed.)
agree with CLWARLDRO try it and see if you like it this way..

Make your oatmeal with it. I put it in tea as well.
Stats: Female, 5'4", 28 years old.
Goal: From 152 (07/24/2011) to 125 by December, 2011. DONE! December 4th weighed in at 124. In 2012 I've been maintaining around 122, which is a thirty pound loss. My BMI has gone from 26.1 to 20.9 since following the Spark plan!
I also have some almond milk in my pantry. I also got on a great sale and thought it sounded healthy, but haven't figured out what to do with it. I bought a box of rice milk too and that is one the shelf right next to the almond milk waiting for me to come up with a good idea!
