I’ve never really strayed from just plain, unsweetened, unflavored Walmart brand almond milk. Am I missing out on any better options? I typically don’t buy anything with added sweetners of any kind, or added flavors. I never drink milk straight- just use it in various recipes.
Would also like to try making my own at some point, if anyone has any tips I’d appreciate it! I have a ninja blender and a nut milk bag, so I think I should be able to do it.

Been a while since I've made almond milk. From memory - boil almonds (this loosens skins, I think soaking overnight might do the trick as well, though never tried with almonds), cool, remove skins, blend with just enough water (too much and you'll have almond peices in milk), then when smooth, add water to desired consistancy.

If I need milk in a pinch here are two that are quick and easy:

Pulverize rolled oats until it's a flour, then add water and blend - Oat milk

Blend Tahini with water - Sesame seed milk (more fatty, but delicious with the right flavors).


Others:

Soy milk you need to soak beans overnight then boil, but similar steps otherwise.

Pepitas are a quick soak - less than an hour, and you can make a green milk or add with other ingredients like rolled oats as flour.

Just about any nut, seed, legume or grain can become "milk", some need to be soaked/cooked, some don't - it doesn't need to be white to be good. :)

Full Circle Foods' original/unflavored soymilk.

I've never tried making my own plant milk...probably time I change that

Light Vanilla Soy Milk when I can find it. It used to be really common. But all these other versions of plant milks are squeezing soy milk off the shelves.

Plain unsweetened is what I've been buying mostly lately. It's good for everything but drinking plain.

I usually buy Silk unsweetened almond milk in gallons. I use it for smoothies and cooking. I also like soymilk, macadamia milk and coconut milk for coffee or to drink.

Almond, unsweetened, natural flavour. Occasionally coconut to add to curry. Sometimes banana, made at home.
