Almond milk has the same thick and creamy consistency of whole-fat cow's milk with a slightly nutty taste. There are many types of almond milk available from different producers that each have a unique taste including unsweetened, sweetened, vanilla and chocolate variations.
Plain almond milks can be used in equal exchange for recipes using regular milk. However, flavored almond milks can be overpowering and should generally be reserved for drinking or cereal. Some brands of almond milk have large amounts of sugar added to them. Checking the label before purchasing is a good idea to prevent unnecessary sugar consumption, especially when using almond milk for baking and cooking.
