Well, not since the giant almonds went extinct.

Now haz a sad.

I buy it sometime.  I don't drink milk, but sometimes need it for a recipe and almond milk keeps longer.
 
2020-09-30 2:23:08 AM  
Absolutely no question about it - Whole milk is better.

Also if you read the ingredients list it doesn't say emulsified, pulverized, or liquefied, almonds henceforth I think it's really disingenuous to call that a milk

You mean which is better, whole milk or almond juice.  It's not farking milk  Note that I don't consider skimmed milk to be milk.  It's water pretending to be milk.

Chocolate almond milk is really good, and it won't mess up your stomach from the lactose.

When I first became aware that I was lactose intolerant I had switched to Almond milk, Silk Dark chocolate isn't bad, but I've since switched to Lactaid or house brand lactose free Whole milk, SO much better. I've also found that Green Valley creamery makes lactose free butter, sour cream, cream cheese, and half and half and Lactaid makes a cottage cheese. Those plus certified cheeses from Finlandia and Cabbot Creamery have covered 99.9% of my dairy needs. There's even oddball stuff like a sweetened condensed milk from Carnation that is available on Amazon. Oh, and Lactaid has a pretty good line of icecream.

The harder part has been avoiding it in prepared foods and eating out, it involves reading every label, checking websites, and occasionally being miserable. That's actually been a silver lining of covid, in eating 80% more meals homemade so my number of episodes has gone way down.

Death by Spaghettification: Chocolate almond milk is really good, and it won't mess up your stomach from the lactose.


I accidentally bought a bottle of iced mocha that was made with almond juice.  It wasn't bad, but I prefer the real milk variation.  It's the milk fat that makes all the difference.

Sure.
But, read the ingredients.
Almond milk does not have any emulsion, pulverized, or liquefied almonds.
I suspect they just rinse almonds off and call that almond milk.

No, the words "milk" and "slurry" aren't synonyms.

I don't need either much, but if it's beverages or cereal, I can accept almond milk. But for cooking, they aren't the same. You're looking for the chemistry of milk in baking, but I guess the people who drink almond milk aren't making pastries.

Look!
Water and almonds.

Read some of the recipes.

Explain how something that isn't using pulverized, liquefied, or an emulsion of almonds is a milk?
It sounds more like a rinse
Or steep
Which means it's a tea or a drink.
Like cool aid.

Kind of this.   I can take almond milk on cereal, it's quite alright in that case.  But it sucks for cooking or for our daily lattes we make at home.

I do use either skim or 1% for the lattes, it foams much better than whole milk.   And you are right, 2% or whole milk for baking and cooking sauces, etc.

CSS: my grandkids mother was just so sure that the kids liked almond milk better than real milk (she doesn't like milk).  But when they came over, they were excited because Nana had real milk, they'd drink glasses of the stuff like it was a fine wine.   I didn't have the heart to tell her that.

You better stop before you start shouting insane, ridiculous bullshiat like "Turkey bacon isn't bacon because turkeys don't have any pork belly on them!".

It isn't.  It's imitation bacon.  It's not bad, but it's not as good as the real thing.

Cow's milk and I aren't getting along so great these days. I pretty much only use it in my coffee, but I go heavy on it so I don't have to bother with sugar. I finally settled on half almond milk & half oat milk as the most acceptable substitute.

Wow.

I like turkey bacon. It's close enough. I only eat bacon when I make BLTs.
But. The only place I can walk to rn, because of c19, only has real bacon but from boar's head.
I love BLTs but my heart doesn't. LOL.

///
I drink almond milk. Again because the place across the street only carries almond milk and super expensive milk. Anyway. It's okay. But Jesus Christ. Put some actual almonds in it. I want to read the ingredients and see something that tells me it's got actual almonds in it.
It should read pulverized/liquefied/or something else they signifies there's element in there.
until then I'm convinced that they're just washing almonds and calling the runoff milk

Fish have lips and and let's not get started on the whole duck lips thing

chitownmike:Fish have lips and and let's not get started on the whole duck lips thing

I know. I explained that to him at the time, but as I said, he's a weird guy. Something about "they're not lips, they're fleshy protrusions on the jaw bones". It still amazes me how intelligent he is in some subjects, he's been a doctor, and a good one for 40 some years now. And then sometimes he has these radically abstract thoughts. Like fish don't have lips, turkey can be bacon.

He's still funny as hell and I love seeing him the one time a year I usually see him when he visits. But with the pandemic I didn't go to any family gatherings. Because I don't want to kill the people I love.

2020-09-30 5:19:51 AM  
Don't care for moo juice anymore. Mostly just drink water and a bit of coffee but I'm in cut-back mode on that. I do enjoy making actual almond/cashew milk at home but it's kinda expensive. Add in orange peel and basil it's quite tasty though.

/back to sipping coffee
 
2020-09-30 5:28:55 AM  
Turkey bacon is just fine. It's no substitute for the real deal but it still goes just dandy on a blt.
 
2020-09-30 5:36:59 AM  
I almost never buy milk anymore. On occasion I get a craving for biscuits and gravy though, so I need milk. I honestly can't fathom just how crappy that "gravy" would be if I used almond milk.

The milk I buy when I need it for cooking is the stuff at Kroger. They source from a regional VA dairy. This is some pretty good milk. I like that it comes in the bottles and the one I use for my gravy is the whole milk that has the fat plug at the bottle opening that you have to push down into the milk and shake it all up :).

I have recently started enjoying oat milk, you should give it a go!
 
2020-09-30 7:17:49 AM  
I saw a write up comparing milk again the alternatives.  Bottom line:  Each of the alternatives had a interesting property of two that milk didn't have, but also was severely lacking in at least good thing milk did have.  The alternatives were also 2-3 time more expensive than milk.

Personally, I drink FairLife because of it's reduced sugar, help with diabetes.  I do however, strongly prefer almond butter over peanut butter despite the extra cost.

White liquids derived from plants and nuts has been called milk for about 800 years now and almond milk was there at the beginning.  So I think that definition works pretty well.

I know one of the reasons that coffee shops latched on to oat milk was that it worked better in coffee drinks than the other plant milks.  I know some dairy milk brands have special milk for coffee shops specifically made to foam better.

water > soy milk > almond milk > skim milk > whole milk


As I get older, I care more about how healthy something is than how it tastes.  Maintaining my weight takes less effort if I drink mostly water.
