I don't drink it plain, but I love it on oatmeal or cereal.

Unfortunately, I'm not a big fan of the taste of Almond Milk. I prefer chocolate Soy Milk instead.

It's tasty, but very low-protein unfortunately. My second choice after raw whole milk.

I drink it. I like soy better, but I'm afraid of the estrogen.

I have enjoyed it, but I find that the lack of protein and calcium is a big drawback!

I love the taste of almond milk, but I usually stick to [light/unsweetened] soy milk because it has a lot more protein and fewer calories.

I also love hemp milk, but nobody around me sells it so I haven't been able to compare nutritional facts since I started paying attention to them.

Love it. I thought about it, waited a long time before I finally tried it. Now I willingly try the different varieties available.

I like the unsweetened Almond Breeze and the PC Organics Unsweetened.

There was one I bought in a container like regular milk (the others are in "tetra" paks), and I found it too watery.

I never buy the sweetened version, though.

I like the flavour alone, but I find it curdles in my coffee...ick.

I tried it once and didn't like it. My step-sister who is Type I Diabetes drinks it instead of regular milk. She started drinking it because of her diabetes but I don't know why.

I love dark chocolate so I'm going to try that flavor.

Silk Pure Almond Dark Chocolate is fabulous--I do think it's sweet, but it still has a clear chocolate flavor (I've found that some regular chocolate milks are just like sugary milk with a very faint cocoa taste to them... bleh.)

Great in coffee, tea or on cereal - horrible if you drink it straight.

I get Silk Vanilla Almond Milk. As others have said it is on the sweet side, but that makes it perfect for iced coffee in my opinion. 1:1 ratio of coffee to almond milk and no need to add any sweetener. Beats using the artificial creamers by a long shot!

I have used the Almond Dark Chocolate and I love it. I don't know about the Vanilla. I only drink milk that is Non Fat so I am not too worried about using that for my cereals.

Personally, I didn't care for it. Flavor was just too strong. I love the Soy Slender milk in vanilla, as I not only drink it by the glass, but I use it for my cereals.

Like soy and coconut milk, in comes in plain, vanilla, chocolate, sweetened, and unsweetened

I like the plain, unsweetened. The ex liked vanilla unsweetened because the vanilla taste was enough of a "sweet" taste to fool his taste buds when poured over cereal.

If you don't instantly love it, I wouldn't bother trying to develop a taste for it. It's really disappointing, nutritionally; it's low in protein, has only a tiny bit of natural calcium (most of it is added calcium, which tends to settle out and stick to the inside of the container so you don't get the full dose), and often has a lot of sugar. It doesn't even have much vitamin E, compared to eating actual almonds. I actually like the taste well enough, but it's just not nutritious enough to bother with IMO when you could get so much more from regular milk or soy milk.

It's great! That's all we drink at our house anymore. We use Silk unsweetened almond milk, vanilla, regular, and dark chocolate are all great!

Ditto! Love Almond Breeze. It's especially good if you are Lactose intolerant. I can't even drink Lactose free Milk or Soy Milk but Almond Milk works for me....

I like it. I buy Silk Original (60 calorie). The 40 calorie was just too watery for me. It is lower price than Almond Breeze.

If there is a coupon for Almond Breeze that puts it below Silk in price, I buy it.

I use it in my coffee...weaning myself off of half & half and baileys vanilla. So far, its's not half & half but it will suffice. My sister uses it in her cereal.

I like it in a shake or something along those lines. In cereal it's ok too.

I love the Silk unsweetened almond milk 1 cup is only 35 calories. I just drink it by the glass, but was going to try it in my Bear Naked Fit (vanilla almond crunch)100% pure & natural granola. but I thought I would try it as a cereal. emoticon

I love almond milk! I can drink it plain or in something else. I like Blue Diamond unsweetened vanilla.

Sweetened Silk vanilla is just too sweet for me.

I've had the silk vanilla one before. It was a bit too sweet. I liked it on cereal but I really couldn't drink just a glass of it. I probably would have loved it in coffee. o:

I don't drink it strait, but I use unsweetened vanilla in my coffee and some teas. I also sometimes use it in baking or smoothies. I think it would be fine on cereal but I don't really eat boxed cereal. It works pretty well when cooking oatmeal.

The unsweetened kind is still a little sweet, but more earthy. You may want to buy both kinds and mix them to wean yourself from the sweet one. That's what I did with soy milk and now I can't stand the sweetened kind.

I tried almond milk for the first time. I bought the Silk brand original flavor. I love it, but it is a bit sweet. I think it will be great in coffees, teas, cereals, and an occasional glass to help curb a sweet tooth. I think I may need unsweetened to drink with my meals. How is the unsweetened kind?
