    It looks like milk, and has similar fat content, and “nut juice” makes it sound gross

    Nut juice

    you know that "nuts" has another connotation associate with it right? :D

    Lame thread?!!! I'll have you know the pope personally called me and said he doesn't approve of me inferring "disgusting things" when it comes to almonds and milk. So there. Well maybe it wasn't exactly the pope. And maybe nobody actually really called me. But its the same difference.

    .... would you settle for 'Quasi-Lame' Thread ??

    Absolutely not. In what other thread on mfp can you so Openly talk about people’s liking or not liking of nut juice? And stuff. Geez.

    I was just kidding, your opinion isn't bad. "Milk" probably makes it work better in marketing.

    Although it does seem pretty silly to quibble about this, I don’t find it completely silly, because I’ve heard (and read, even on this thread) many people who seem to think they are nutritionally equivalent, or even that nut milks are nutritionally a better choice than dairy milk. One may taste similar to the other or function similarly in coffee, but they are not remotely the same in the way your body uses them. Dairy milk contains protein and a variety of nutrients, depending on whether or not it’s full fat. Almond milk is basically nothing, a couple of almonds and a lot of water. Dairy milk is a good choice for a recovery drink. Almond milk is not. Dairy milk is a good snack for a growing child who happens to be hungry. Almond milk is not.

    If you’re eating 1200 calories and need to trick your brain into thinking you just had milk, almond milk is a great idea. If, on the other hand, you’re a vegan trying to get the same nutrition as milk without consuming dairy, almond milk is a terrible idea.

    It’s hard to deny that calling it “milk” is misleading when you can point to actual people who are being misled.

    Depends on what you are looking for. I would never give cow juice (milk) to a child. The protein in cow’s milk is a common allergen for babies, children, and adults.

    I can't stand the consistency of nut milk, any kind. I've legit had to spit it out before.

    Only if they are allergic to it. After breastmilk or formula they get whole milk once they are old enough.

    Soy and almond milk is better for the environment though.

    I drink soy diarrhea

    Well, I wouldn't say that I, myself, drink soy diarrhea, but when I consume soy milk I will say that diarrhea might just happen. Soy milk is just unfermented bean farts.

    True because almonds are carcinogenic so if you consumers much of their nut juice you will expire early from a horrible cancer death.
