What kind of milk do you all drink?

Answered on September 12, 2014
Created October 19, 2011 at 10:24 PM

I've been experimenting with Coconut and Almond milks but they all seem to have additives, which includes gums. If you drink these, then what brand do you buy and where do you buy it?

Same. Raw milk for drinking, raw cream for coffee, otherwise I don't drink "milk substitutes.". Will occasionally use BPA-free coconut milk when cooking.

Jersey cow raw milk is the very best. almost steroid like when it comes to strength training. Raw milk is drinking milk for the first time.

The price just went up to 1,550 yen a bottle! The producer send a note around apologizing for the increase, but said that even with the higher price he's *still* not making money.

There isn't a whole lot of "almond" in almond milk. The amount of phytase and 06 is far less than eating a large handful of raw almonds. Since most people don't drink an entire carton of almond milk in a day (a week or more is a more likely scenario) it is not something I would lose sleep over.

Split between homemade from shredded coconut (either Let's Do Organic or Bob's Red Mill, whichever is cheaper on amazon at the time I place the order), and Golden Star Coconut Milk. This is from WalMart, so I'm sure it kills puppies and kittens in some way, but it is inexpensive and the ingredient list is just coconut and water.

Raw milk from a local farmerwith Jersey cows. I drink less than 8 oz. a day. I drink some fresh, some I ferment into kefir.

1 can of cocnut milk a week, usually in coffee.

Commercial almond milk is disgustion and has minimal nutrition in my opinion.

To make my matsoni yogurt I use low-temp pasteurized milk from the store, heated to 60 C for 30 minutes.

For occasional straight consumption I purchase actual raw milk from a producer in Hokkaido. Very very delicious but that's a luxury item since it costs 1,050 yen for 720 ml. That's like buying a $13 bottle of wine. At current exchange rates that comes out to about $72/gallon, so don't complain to me about prices at Whole Foods! I wish I could get things at Whole Food prices.

So I only get a couple bottles every couple of weeks. Comes in a glass bottle too.

Raw milk from hillacreas pride in peachbottom, Pa. Jersey- almost yellow in color (almost) taste like nothing you ever drank. Don't drink much as it is tough to get and use mostly during strength training months. Other then that- none, but I love real cheeses.
