What is the Shelf Life of Almond Milk compared to Cows Milk ? ? ?

I worked on a Dairy farm once.
Short length of time, I not cut out for it.
Now, when ever I smell diesel fumes, it brings back those memories.

How much do you guys pay??



That's about what we pay. Every once in a while they'll have it on sale for $1.99 for 1/2 gallon, but that isn't very often.

Almond milk is awesome in cereal, but I'm not a fan of drinking it straight.

A gallon of Cow's Milk is $2.38 here, so if I switch over it'll be double.

...of course, my Step-Daughter is Asian & lactose intolerant, so now it'll be triple. duh

...oh my Asian Wife likes it too. Uh-oh. LOL

I like it ! ... I'm lactose intolerant and use it or soy milk but my Chiropractor recommends the almond milk as it won't promote or cause any inflammation in the body ... but it's pricey around here... $3.29 to $3.99 depending on brand.

Recipe? I'm sure it's easy.

I like almond milk.


There are tons of YouTube videos about making your own nut milks. Generally, about 1/2 cup of the nut to 2 cups of water is a decent measure.

You will need either a cheese cloth or purpose made nut milk bag (bought mine on Amazon for $7) to stain off the liquid.

I add ice to the water (to combat the heating action of high speed blending), put the iced water and nuts in the blender, run it at MAX for 5 mins. strain it, enjoy.

Its way better to make your own, why?...no preservatives, you get to choose your own sweetener (if any).....honey, stevia, vanilla stevia, plain old sugar if you like, etc etc...

Play around with different nuts. this morning I made Hemp milk cause I like it in my coffee.


Its fun, easy, quick and once again, its a step closer to being more in control about what goes into your body smile

I welcome any questions.

It's good in cereal, straight up, or in a cocktail. Last New Year we were using it in a drink that was something like a Black or White Russian, take your pick. We used either Chocolate or Vanilla Almond milk in the cocktails. They were a big hit! The Chocolate Almond Milk with Vodka and Kahlua was amazing.

Cows milk might be the nastiest drink on the planet. Its all I can do to eat a meal while my wife and kids are drinking it.

I use unsweetened vanilla almond milk all the time. Mainly in my cheerios in the morning,but in oatmeal as well. Its pretty good when used in a fresh fruit smoothie also.

Well, I totally switched over to Almond Milk except for one evening. After some time to feel if there's any difference, I do know one difference...

I used to have somewhat bad morning breath every morning after drinking Cows Milk daily.

That bad morning breath is essentially gone now that I switched over to Almond Milk!! banana

Anyone else notice this??
