I love almond milk and use it for everything these days. It's a great alternative to skim - has 2x the amount of calcium, helps clear irritated skin, doesn't make your gut feel bloated. I use it in cereals, smoothies, any kind of baked good, some pastas - basically everything.

It's a main ingredient in a smoothie recipe I just posted in my blog post - SO YUM btw :)

Big fan of almond milk. :)

If you're making yogurt, you will likely have to add a bit of sweetener for the fermentation to take place. Dairy milk has natural sugars not in almond milk.

Almond milk has no protein as regular milk does. I use soy milk, it has the same amount of protein as regular milk.

We have use unsweetened almond mile for the past 6 years with no problems. It does not do as well in some recipes that call for cream or half and half but anything that needs just a tablespoon or so I use it in. Previous to that I used skim milk about 30 years.

I drink unsweetened almond milk in my coffee, and protein shakes daily to add healthy fats without the carbs. I also recently tried the unsweetened almond coconut milk blend vanilla flavored. Both are delicious to me.

Yogurt needs a dairy product so many of the seed or nut milks won't work.

I too like almond/coconut/cashew non sweetened milk. Sometimes I like to have skim mixed in, by itself, or vanilla flavored almond as well. Thanks for all the feedback about uses in baking and puddings. I like the low cal due to cal restraints while changing from overindulging to eating properly balanced meals and snacks within my cal limits. Thanks all!!!!

We all need friends, so today can I show myself friendly?

I prefer low-cal almond milk to drink. It has 30 calories per 8 ozs. It has more calcium than cow's mil,.

I bake everything with almond milk and have never had a problem. I recently made chocolate (dariy free) pudding using cashew milk and it was excellent. Here's the recipe - http://recipes.sparkpeople.com/recipe-detail.asp?recipe=2876646 and it does thicken up nicely.

For pudding - I haven't tried it yet but I found online to reduce the amount of milk from 2 cups to 1.5 cups and add 2 tsp of cornstarch to the pudding mix before adding the milk. It should help the almond milk set up correctly. I think I am going to try it this week because I have been craving butterscotch pudding emoticon

Oh - and I use almond milk or soy milk in just about everything. The only thing that my DH refuses to use it in is if we have vanilla flavor only in the house - don't use it in mac and cheese emoticon

I have recently switched to cashew milk (unsweetened). It seems creamier and is very low calorie. I haven't tried it in a lot so far beyond cereal, but it worked fine in a cream soup.

Use almond milk in all my recipes. The only problem if it is in liquid form (such in a in the container before if it used for anything) and you try to freeze it, it will curdle. Other than that it is great and I use it in everything.

Here's an excerpt from this article:

"Unsweetened almond milk can be used in most recipes that call for milk, including both cooked and baked goods. However, unsweetened almond milk cannot replace dairy milk in packaged instant puddings."
