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 kept hearing a few years ago from visits w another person about cows milk not what it used to be from many levels so two years ago i switched gradually from. Last year a tried coconut unsweeted in protien. Drinks and found them much lighter consistancy of cool whip recently i tried the cashew suppose to help with anxiety depression stress will see.
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.
"Don't let the fear of the time it will take to accomplish something stand in the way of your doing it. The time will pass anyway; we might just as well put that passing time to the best possible use."
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 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.

Forgiveness means giving up hope for a better past.
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
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
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.
"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."
