    Don't care what it's called.

    Agree. I buy the unsweetened almond milk because it's only 30 calories a cup and cheap!

    I call it cold nut press and coconaid. Feels more like an unexpected treat that way

    Edited. Wasn't aware I couldn't mention a grocery store? Is that really a rule?

    Well that’s most likely the fancy organic version.

    This had me laughing. In one native dialect we call all milk the root word for breast/source + animal/plant.

    1. Human milk translated, milk from breast/source of his/her mother.
    2. Coconut (nuts, seeds or grain) milk translated, milk from flesh of coconut.
    3. Cow/goat/camel translated, milk from cow, goat, camel breast.

    Terms for water and milk are different as they aren't from the same source. Eg. A nursing mum produces 2 forms of liquid (void and breast milk) ... Terms aren't interchangeable. Coconut water isn't coconut milk. Almond milk is extracted in much the same process as coconut milk.

    I was so excited I had to have some nut juice. Or almond milk, if you will.

    My teenage son is not a fan of all the dairy alternatives I keep buying and putting in the fridge. I made my own blend one day with several types of nuts, and offered him a taste. He was not amused. So I put it in a jug in the fridge and wrote NUT JUICE in big letters on it. He was still not amused.

    How can that not amuse a teenage boy? I would be extremely amused to see that in the fridge and i am an old lady.

    I've seen that camel milk at the grocery store.

    What made me do a double take though was "Product of USA" on the label. Like where are we stashing camels at in this country? Probably in some huge tent somewhere in Ohio. Poor babies.

    And they've probably run out of fresh camels by now so it's more than likely inbred camel milk.
