What milk do you drink? - February 28th 2018, 05:09 AM

As the title says, what type of milk do you drink and how do you drink it? Coffee, tea, milkshakes or by itself?

I drink fairlife whole milk which comes from cows, I believe. It is absolutely delicious. It's a bit expensive so I don't tend to get it a lot.

It is one of the only milks I can drink by itself. I will sometimes warm it up and add a little sugar or honey. That is delicious as well. It goes well in Tea too.

I also drink the fairlife chocolate milk. They have a new one with Omega-3 and a few other things which is cool.

Re: What milk do you drink? - February 28th 2018, 07:08 AM

For me, it depends on what I'm using it for.

I tend to mostly use full cream cow's milk, as it's the cheapest and most convenient option. That's what I use for coffee, tea, and other everyday things.

Sometimes I go with soy milk for a while, but I dislike that it only really comes in 1L bottles. I find it hard to make sure I don't run out because of the smaller size (I normally buy 3L bottles of regular milk), but I would definitely try to switch to it if it came in larger sizes.

For smoothies, I use oat milk, almond milk, or vanilla-flavoured soy milk, depending on what else I'm putting in it.

If I'm having a turmeric latte, I prefer rice milk or coconut milk, although I rarely have those readily available.

So I have skim milk generally for like regular consumption (coffee, pasta and just plain milk and choccie).

Never got into soy/almond etc. May use full cream regular milk if i can't get skim (AKA today). although fun fact is I'm lactose intolerant so can't have too much

I'll use cow's milk in things, but I can't really drink it straight anymore, but I'll drink soy milk or almond milk by itself.

I drink unsweetened soy milk 99% of the time unless I'm out of it because cow's milk by itself can make me nauseous (not a gamble I want to take). If I'm out of soy I will drink a small amount of chocolate milk made with cow's milk, but only to take my medication. Although it's rare for me to run out.

I use cow's milk if I'm cooking since no one else in my house likes soy, though.

I'm trying to wean off cows milk but if I'm out at cafes or tea shops, I like drinking any of the nutty milk especially Macadamia or Hazelnut.

Cows milk or too much dairy gives me a very nasty stomach so I try not to drink too much of it, but I also really don't enjoy any of the other milks I've tried (which is limited to soy and almond but I don't like them), so I've given up

I drink cow's milk mostly, but before bed I have a glass of almond milk. I also sometimes drink soy milk. Usually I drink it by itself,but sometimes I drink it in a milkshake, tea, or coffee (If my mom let's me.)

I haven't had cow's milk in two and a half years. I usually drink almond milk.

I've tried almond milk, soy milk, cow's milk, skim milk, and 2% milk.

I'm really curious about that pea milk though!

I am too! I've been on the hunt for it, apparently it's very earthy and creamy.

Pea milk is actually really good. When we go to the states for groceries, we get this product because it's the best alternative for 1/2 cream we have found to make alfredo sauce or anything else that needs it. They also have a really nice unsweetened original version that we can get where I live! Due to allergies, my family alternates between unsweetened soy, cashew, almond, or pea depending on who wants what. Sometimes we have all of them in our fridge, sometimes a few but it really depends. My mum has skim milk in the house as well in a different fridge that she uses for her tea. I'm not picky but I don't like chocolate or vanilla flavoured milk in any form.

What does pea milk taste like? Does it taste like actual peas?

I drink 2%. I tend to mostly use milk in ingredients for other dishes, but if I'm having milk as a main ingredient it's in cereal, tea, or milkshakes.

It doesn't taste like peas! The original one tastes like soy milk, it's creamy and actually good tasting. The chocolate and vanilla ones apparently taste like a milkshake according to my siblings. There is a slight chalky aftertaste if you drink it plain but since I don't, I really don't notice it.

Re: What milk do you drink? - March 13th 2018, 02:35 PM

I drink soy milk, if it's available. Cow's milk (full cream or skim) gives me bad stomach cramps. Even just eating cereal soaked in it is enough to make me sick. I have had almond milk in the past too but soy tastes way better IMO, I actually prefer the taste to cow's milk. I was a little hesitant to make the switch from cow's milk to an alternative, despite my stomach pains because I loved the taste of it. But I'm really glad I don't drink it much anymore because my pain is finally gone, it only took almost 18 years.


I've always been really curious about hazelnut, rice (this sounds really good for some reason ) and goat's milk though. I've never had them but I wanted to try. I think goat's milk may have lactose in it though, not entirely sure but I remember getting sick after eating goat's cheese so maybe I should just steer clear of that...

I rarely drink milk (I get extremely sick) so I only have milk in smoothies, and I only use soy milk.

Cows milk - specifically semi skimmed (the one with the green lid ). I use it for my cereal, hot chocolate , cappuccino and tea.

A few weeks ago my dad brought the organic semi skimmed milk and I disliked it very much as it tasted disgusting. Also I don't like the taste of soy milk as I find it also disgusting. I would never be able to drink hazelnut, cashew or almond milk because of my allergy to nuts .

I had some almond milk once, and that tasted nice. But when I was in my aunt's car going for a drive we stopped at a smallholding where they had Jersey cows, and there we bought glorious gold top milk. Rich, creamy and tasting absolutely wonderful splashed over corn flakes it was like drinking cream! I made a rice pudding with the stuff, and it was a golden-pinky colour with suh a memorable taste that at weekends we buy this lovely gold top milk so we enjoy it with friends and family. Ice cold, straight from the fridge. :
