I tried some Chevre last night for the first time ever and LOVED it! Man, that stuff is tastey!

I drink all the various milks, but prefer ice cold skim milk over all of them.

A timely reminder! My aunt's coming for the holidays, she drinks soy milk, so I need to get a carton in the frig. She's a marathoner. I think it's because the medals come easy when so few people her age can run that far in one stretch.

I've always wondered... I learned in elementary school that mammals are defined by a set of glands that produce... milk. How can milk be extracted from plants? What exactly is the definition of "milk?"

I don't consume much of it, so mine, some of it frozen, is chock full of fat.

Dawg!! How many times do I have to send you to my DC-pound list!

Actually, that might be a fun title to compose in slack key... logging off for the evening to fiddle with my guitar...

The subject of the post should be .........fake milk.
It just doesn't rhyme like Silk Milk.
Fake anything never seems very appetizing as a descriptor.
Hi Honey, want some rice water? care for a little soy water? how about a little almond water?

I'm a little dubious of milk-like products, especially soy milk. A lot of people think of soy as a magic bullet, but I've read too many scientific articles that paint a different picture. Most seem to agree that some soy is okay, but it's not something you should consume a lot of, and certainly not on a daily basis. The biggest problem is that it contains isoflavones, which your body "sees" as an estrogen compound. Enzymes in soy also inhibit absorption of minerals that your body needs, such as zinc and iodine.

Not to put a damper on things, but it's worth reading about and making up your own mind.

My doctor told me to avoid soy and all estrogenic foods. I just use regular old cow's milk. I would be happy to use goat's milk, but it's lots more expensive than cow's milk around here. I sometimes buy goat's milk yoghurt, because it tends to break less in cooking.
