I'm another unsweetened almond milk fan. I put it in my coffee whenever I am home in the mornings. It only has 35 calories!

I was a cow milk drinker up until a few months ago. Then I switched, mainly because I was trying to reduce my calories. I texted my friend who has been trying to get me to switch for years and said " you have converted me to almond milk" and he said "oh no! how will I ever hug you again!" hahaha anyways this thread made me think of that

I seen people doing that on TV... wouldn't almonds blended to make milk be high in fat and calories? Compared to the commercial almond milks only being about 35 calories.

I tried soy milk years ago and thought it was gross. However, my roommate drinks unsweetened almond milk. I gave it a try and couldn't believe how yummy it is for only 35 calories. I'm a convert too! Mmmmm...

I really like Almond milk.. You can get sweetened or unsweetened. Even vanilla flavored. I've tried soy milk, but I'm not a big fan of the flavor..

I use unsweetened vanilla almond milk or unsweetened plain almond milk. Soy milk is a little too gritty for my taste and rice milk is very thick/sweet.

Sounds like I would like rice milk since it's thick and sweet. Is rice milk on the grocery store shelves or in the cooler section?

I have tried them all, and sadly I love them all so it's hard just to pick one. But depends on what you might want to archive (aside from a low dairy diet), you will have different consideration. If you want to lower your testosterone level, then go for soy milk. Almond milk is rich in calcium, however you don't want to consume it regularly, it can cause kidney stone (unless your bone density are way lower than normal). Rice milk has less protein, but it tastes great anyway.

I'm using the unsweetened almond milk right now but want to try the coconut. The label on the coconut is daunting as the fat content is very high!

I also love the unsweetened almond milk! I use it in smoothies or oats. I saw hazelnut milk at the store recently, but I haven't tried it. It sounded so delicious that I felt it was in my best interest to never try it
