I'm really not a milk-lover. I don't like it, but can handle it in cereal or a little added to my coffee or super chocolatey milk. I do recognize the benefits of cow's milk (if there's no hormones and preferrably raw milk, but I've yet to get there) and can definitely mask the taste and consume it for the health benefits alone.
However, several years ago I did try Silk in the regular milk or vanilla flavor and some other flavor. It wasn't bad at all, but I would prefer using cow's milk because of its benefits. I can usually handle consuming anything (no matter the icky taste) as long as I know it has health benefits. I can choke down some wheatgrass and barley grass & herbal tonics as long as I'm thinking of their health benefits. Heck, I brushed my teeth with bar soap for months just because of the benefits. Lol.
I'm pretty sure the stuff I tried was soy milk and I've since read some harms caused by it, so I don't even drink it anymore, but the taste of one of the flavors was pretty lovely!
I think almond milk is healthy though & we've talked about wanting to try it. Almond butter too. My lovie has really been wanting to try that stuff. Have you had any of it?
So this stuff doesn't lighten coffee? I wouldn't much love that. I sometimes make extremely strong coffee that requires a drop of some kind of milk or creamer.
