non dairy milks

Bought “smooth almond milk – original” and “soy milk original” from Trader Joe’s, since I’ve been eating cereal dry and I’ve been feeling a little bit sad about it. Each were like $1.20 so I figured it’d be worth getting both to try. They both have added Vitamins A, D and E and they both suck.

The soy milk has a weird aftertaste that reminds me of protein powder and makes me feel gaggy. Maybe it’s the added supplements? I mean, I don’t have a problem with regular Chinese soy milk. Also it’s sweetened (9g/serving).

The almond milk tastes like almonds. Which most people probably have no problem with but I just don’t like it. I expected a milk nutty aftertaste but no, it’s pretty much full on NUTS. Being picky is probably not helping my search for alternative foods for my new diet. But basically they’re both yucky and I suppose I’ll just stop eating cereal for breakfast…

  1. What brand did you try? I only drink almond milk. Blue Diamond Almond Breeze is great.
    Try Rice Milk?

  2. TJ brand. I thought about trying rice milk but now I’m super disheartened by non-dairy milk alternatives. I’ve had bad luck with GF versions of things too. I think I just expect something good but really they’re just trying to replace something impossible :(

  3. I don’t like TJ’s original soy milk, but I do enjoy their vanilla flavor. Their coconut milk is also only okay.

    One of my favorites is Silk — obvious, but it is really good. Also, the WestSoy (? not sure if this is the brand name, but it’s god a red box) is also pretty good.

  4. Try the Silk soymilk from ralphs/costco or the 365Market one from wholefoods! Those 2 are definitely my favorite after all the ones i’ve tried :)
