I used to use soy milk on my cereal, and then discovered unsweetened vanilla Almond Breeze. I use the vanilla almond milk on cereal, in oatmeal and in coffee. It took some getting used to the thickness of the almond milk, versus regular milk, but I'm okay with it now. And I like the convenience of being able to store it on the shelf for several months - I'm never without milk.

I have enjoyed both soy milk and almond milk.  Also, Chocolate Almond Milk is excellent!

I've been using soy milk for over a year in place of regular milk. I have tried regular soy silk, vanilla, and vanilla light. It is tasty and supposed tol ower cholesterol. It tastes good too! I haven't tried Almond Breeze ,

I use plain unsweetened soy milk on my oatmeal.  I thought it might help with hot flashes.  Either it does or it is all in my head.  My sister says it does though

I have used Soy Milk not sure if I have tried Almond Milk or not..I love almonds so I would think I would remember....
My Granddaughter can not drink milk so I am thinking Soy, rice or Almond milk is something I should keep here at the house.  My get some of the small packages that  are shelf stable.
I was not sure if soy, rice or almond are able to be used in cooking with the same results as milk.

I'm not sure about if you can use soy, rice, or almond "milk" in the place of cow's milk.  It might depend on what you're cooking.  But, soy, rice, and almond "milk" don't have the same ingredients in them that cow's milk does and the chemistry might not be right for some dishes.

GRANA  here;
I tried it once ( on sale[ had coupons]  camew/ a BONUS pkg  of JUMMBO  whole grain  cookies); loved both but regular price too high for daily use.The current  price  is 2x that  sale price; no more coupons &  no FREE cookies  any more.Ifyou have lactose/lactase sensitivity; i t is deffinitely  worth trying
BTW:
YOU CANNOT USE IT ( soy milk) TO  MAKE INSTANT PUDDINGS!!!!!!!; it  will not set up/become thickened & pudding like; should be  good for smoothies.

 GRANA here;
 Hi JUDY all in your head  or  NOT? IT(SOY) works in relieving " [personal summeres" for  many  women........All through "THOSE YEARS" I NEVER HAD A HOT FLASH;my ob-gyn  suggested it was  due to the TOFU ( also  made from soy beans) that I ate frequently back then.; still do but  somewhat  less often

lashes.  Either it does or it is all in my head.  My sister says it does though

 HiNIKKI; GRANA here;  Call the TOLL FREE # on thepkg;Soy milk does not work for instant puddings but might for cooked pudding?; I don't know about creamed soups.The phone call is FREE  &  worth the time to ask specific questions of those that would/should know best.  When you find out let the rest of us know; PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I've never had soy milk.   But I'm not crazy about anything made with soy.  I tried Soy Joy bars a few times and didn't really like the taste or texture.  I looked at the almond milk but with the high price I just kept on walking lol.  I don't have to worry about hot flashes anymore so I think I'll just stick with 1% or 2% milk.  But thanks for the info.

I have two more coupons for Almond milk so my son will pick up a couple of half gallons on his way home.This is really rich and creamy with a lot less calories and sugar.I'm going to start looking for some recipes on line to use both soy and almond milk.
