I prefer not to buy and drink, or use in cereal/cooking overprocessed plant juices sold as a "milk". I do like the Almond breeze as a coffee creamer tho.

I think we have almond breeze. I saw a program showing how to make it from scratch. A lot of work!!

I see this is an old topic, but my husband really likes the almond milk. Kroger has a store brand that is not really any more expensive than regular milk.

I love Almond milk. I haven't had any binging with it, but I alternate it every day with soy milk. That way I don't get too excited about either one. I don't know if that helps . . .

I see this is an old topic, but I like the Silk unsweetened almond milk. A lot! A little too much - anybody ever have any binge-related problems with it? Is it addictive?

Almond Breeze is the hands down winner in my book.

Almond Breeze is amazing and since I use it all the time to make baked oatmeal and other items that are mixed, I've tried the unsweetened vanilla and it is only 40 calories! I mixed it with Lite Hershey syrup last night and it made fabulous chocolate milk!

Also, Almond Dream ice cream is now my new favorite dessert!

I use almond milk for all of my cooking needs when a recipe calls for milk... to me Almond Breeze is the best... my family and I also use it regularly with everyday eating ex. cereal, oatmeal, shakes and etc.

I think it is worth trying it! I'm not sure how the frozen consistency is, though.

Do you think almond milk would be a good milk substitute in homemade sherbert?

Its not that I don't like it, but any type of soy juice, nut extracts, or other processed " milk textured" like drinks don't agree with me-I have tried several types/brands with no luck. I drink Skim or 1% real cows milk since i'm not lactose intolerant.

Almond Breeze original is my favorite. I like the vanilla for a "dessert" drink.

I use almond milk all the time for cooking and baking. Alot of recipes I make actually call for almond milk. I haven't had any problems with it so have at it! :)

Has anyone used almond milk for cooking?? Can you substitute it for baking purposes? I like the taste for cereal/shakes/etc but I usually use regular (1%) milk for cooking. I would like to go to something vegan, but I really do not like using soy substitutes. Any suggestions? or experiences with Almond or Coconut Milk?

I am a new user of the Silk unsweetened almond milk. I use it in my smoothies to get the biggest bang for my buck! Tastes great!

Almond breeze or silk almond unsweetened are less caloric and best taste.

I prefer the Silk unsweetened Vanilla to the Almond Breeze.

I use it in cereal, oatmeal or quinoa or with any other breakfast, a snack or a cookie. I use it any way I would use regular milk.

I know at my walmart they don't have a health food section. I find my almond milk in the aisle in the cereal aisle or one around it.

I had to switch to almond or rice milk when I became lactose intolerant. I like Almond breeze myself. I like to drink the chocolate. I like the vanilla for cereal and the plain to cook with. Vanilla with mashed potatoes just doesn't appeal to me. I typically only buy the unsweetened. There are many different brands out there. Try them all till you find what you like
I do not like soy though. I like rice milk and almond milk

I like the unsweetened almond breeze - vanilla and chocolate, but I usually use it in something. I'm not one to drink any sort of 'milk' straight up.

I use Blue Almond Brand Almond Milk. I love the taste of the unsweetened. I must admit, it still has a sweetness to it. I really like it with Cheerios!

I am using Almond breeze this week. It was on special in the supermarket so I thought I'd give it a try. The verdict is not in yet. I usually drinks soy.

I drink Almond Breeze unsweetened. 35-40 calories. And it has no funky taste. the sweetened to too sweet for drinking.

I use Silk unsweetened, I only use it on my cereal or in cooking, I never drank milk,alone, anyway, so the taste is inconsequential.

I've only tried Silk Vanilla Almond Milk. It tasted like milk after very sweet cereal has been sitting in it. I think you could get the same effect by mixing teaspoons of sugar with water. UGH

Maybe the unsweetened stuff is better but the vanilla is TOO SWEET.

I use Trader Joe's unsweetened sometimes for my coffee. I don't know how it tastes alone, since I don't drink it like that, but it's great in coffee.

I like to use the Almond Milk in my protein shakes I make instead of skim milk. Half the calories and it taste good.

I don't taste much of a differance in the brands, just in the types.
Sweetened Vanilla- the sweetest tasting
Original- tiny bit of sweetness, tastes closest to real milk
Unsweetened vanilla- no sweetener added, doesn't taste good alone but good for recipes if looking for low carb/low calorie

Silk and Almond Breeze both unsweetened original. I prefer Almond Breeze, but can't always get it, so will settle for silk. If I accidentally buy vanilla, it makes me gag. You can get a smaller container in the healthy section of the supermarket to try before you buy a bigger jug.

I can't seem to get into those plant extracts (soybeans, almonds, coconut, etc) that are processed into a milky substance and sold as Milk, its Not. Mammals give Milk, Not plants. I enjoy the real 1% milk, although I like the almond "milk" as a creamer in my coffee.

AMANDA-- I would buy or make your own almond milk. Don't go soy.
Start with the vanilla or chocolate. I only use the unsweetened but since I don't eat cereal it all goes into my smoothies. It does taste different, but I really enjoy it. Looking into making macadamia and hazelnut milk too.

I'm a regular milk drinker, any suggestions on how to make an adjustment to almond or soy milk? I've heard they are better for us, but I'm so used to cows milk. I do drink milk and use it everyday, I most likely won't give it up, just looking to change up some of my intake. Thanks.

Almond Breeze, unsweetened. I use the plain or vanilla. And I use the chocolate (unsweetened) to make SF homemade ice cream. Yum!

unless I make it myself, i prefer the Whole Foods brand. it doesn't have any casein in it. the other brands do.

I think whole foods brand (365) is really the best. You can also make your own very easily.

I love Silk original. Vanilla's too sweet but I'm worried I won't like unsweetened.

I think it depends on what you're using it for. I either use it with my quinoa "oatmeal" or in smoothies, and prefer Pacific brand because they have an unsweetened, unflavored variety that is 40 calories per cup. However, I buy the Silk brand unsweetened vanilla lately because it is cheaper per 1/2 gallon than the quarts of Pacific. The vanilla can interfere with the flavor of some of my smoothies, though. I have not tried the Almond Breeze brand.
