Silk has an almond milk now and I'm dying to try it. I printed out a coupon on the website. I grew to love Silk plain soymilk almost 6 years ago when my daughter started drinking it(after mommy's milk of course) due to lactose intolerances. Its my favoriate brand of soy milk products so I'm guessing/hoping they do a great almond milk product too.
The Silk Almond milk in "original" tastes absolutely amazing. It's rich, creamy, and just a little sweet. I agree that the healthiest option is making your own almond milk, but be aware it won't last as long! Raw stuff spoils faster which is fine, but just don't make too much...Also, does anyone know what to do with the almond pulp you get after making your own milk? Because I don't know what to do with all that pulp, I shy away from making my own almond milk.
How about rice milk? I never put milk in my cereal but now I wanted to give it a try. I found an article in Whole Living that recommends rice milk for cereals. Is it any good? I've never had any vegan milks before.
Rice milk is really good. Rice Dream Original is super tasty...I often recommend rice milk to mom's who's kids are lactose-intolerant (obviously once the kids are done nursing and can have regular food). So far I've only heard good reports! I think you'll like it!
Hi HippieChick, rice milk is fine. It might take awhile to get used to the taste drinking it alone but in cereal, it's hard to tell the difference. I prefer almond milk though.
Evie, if you have a yard you can mix the pulp into soil or put it in a worm bin for composting. They are pretty easy to do. I got a 5-gallon Rubbermaid bin for $5 at Big Lots, drilled holes in it & got worms from a fellow composting friend. Add food scraps, worms, newspaper shreds & plant clippings.
Just purchased SILK Coconut milk, very good. I eat high fiber cearel in mid mornings so this is a tasty treat. Its the first thing i can actually stomach, if it even looks like MILK....it makes me physically ill..after taking classes years ago and seeing pus in 17 different brands, I didn't drink Milk then, but now just looking at makes me queezy!
Evie-the almond pulp goes great in oatmeal! It will keep as long as the almond milk in the fridge. I will sprinkle it on my granola, oatmeal, and I have been tempted to try it in a cookie recipe. If you drain all of the liquid out, you can use it in baked goods. Yum, now I'm craving almond milk.
There are heaps of videos how to make almond milk yourself on youtube. Maybe try that to get away from the heavily processed food.
Side note: Over here in Germany and the rest of Europe it's actually forbidden by European law to call products like soy milk, almond milk, oat milk etc. 'MILK', as those products do not contain any 'animal milk', and they therefore have to be labelled as 'drink'.
