I haven't had a drop of dairy milk since the day I tasted almond.  I like the taste so much better but I've found its not very satisfactory for cooking.

DH drinks almond milk. He says he likes it but I’ve yet to try it.

I make my own oat milk for smoothies, but I like almond and cashew too.

I enjoy almond milk, especially vanilla flavored.  Soy milk is also good; I'll buy it or almond, whichever is on sale.  I have a bit of a guilty conscience however regarding almond milk.  Most of our almonds are grown in Cal., which is in a perpetual drought, yet almond growing requires a great deal of water.  I read that farmers in Cal often get preferential access to water, sometimes leaving ordinary residents in the lurch.

The water used for almond milk is a real issue.

I'd be just as happy with coconut milk but I suppose it takes lots of water too.  They out to ship the almonds East where they've got more water than they can handle.

‘Soya’ is the European version of soy.

 

How about Banana Milk?

Just blend a ripe banana with water...sweet, creamy. 🍌

My favorite is a tie between Trader Joe's Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk and Califia Farms Toasted Coconut Almond Milk.
