Well, I'm getting soy milk here soon, but I don't know if it will taste any good. My mother in Oregon told me that she hates origional flavor and almond milk, but she likes the vanilla kind. Does she mean Silk? Also, what would you recommend?<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/guitarist.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":guitar:">

Silk comes in different varieties - she could mean the vanilla kind. Or it could be another brand altogether. I'm not a huge fan of soymilk, although I don't hate it. I prefer rice milk, however. I usually drink Rice Dream original - it has a thin texture, like skim milk, but still has the white color that I like (I know that sounds ridiculous). Soy milk is kind of...beige.

First of all, Silk is a brand name. They make vanilla and chocolate, perhaps some other flavors. Depending on the store you go to, you might find different brands as well, including WestSoy, Pacific, or SoyDream. Almond milk is a completely different product than soy milk. It's made from almonds, instead of soy. There is a third popular variety of non-dairy "milk," and that is rice milk.<br><br>
Sorry if you knew all this, but it wasn't clear from your post that you did.

I like soy milk. I drink the unflavored stuff, but it's still quite sweet and a little bit nutty tasting. My son drinks the unsweetened kind, though I can't handle that. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/laugh.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":lol:"> Just experiment and see what you like. And just like using tofu, don't try to pretend it's something it's not. Soy milk won't taste like regular milk, but it is great in its own respect.

Soy milk is definitely great in its own right. I personally still eat dairy products, but I like soy milk much better on cereal and in coffee. Even my sister, who still eats meat, prefers soy milk in her Starbucks beverages. It's tasty!

I drink the Silk Light original flavor. It's my favorite for taste and consistency. It's the only non-dairy milk I've found I like. The Silk original tastes exactly the same, but is a bit thicker, so I don't mind it when I can't get my hands on the thinner Silk Light. I've been drinking Silk even before I gave up meat and animal products. Once I tried almond milk, but the flavor was nutty and the texture gritty to me(probably should have expected that). I did not enjoy it at all. I think that when it comes to the non-dairy milks you really have to keep trying different ones, and even different brands, until you find one that suits you.

I like vanilla flavoured almond milk myself. Almond Breeze is a good brand <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/lick.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":lick:">

I love soy malk - there's a brand, I forget what its called, made for coffee and it's delicious. Echo to what others have said: there are a lot of varieties and you might dislike certain types before finding one for you.

<span>Well, when I first started out with alternative milks I tried Silk vanilla and didn't like it, so I tried chocolate and have been drinking that for years. I also drank vanilla almond milk and chocolate almond milk for awhile, even coconut, all by Silk. My favorite has to be Silk Light Chocolate.</span>

What almond milk had a gritty texture? I've only had Almond Breeze and Silk, and they both are totally smooth. with Silk almond a good bit stronger on the almond taste.<br>
Was it homemade?

Did you shake it up before you poured it?
