    Almond milk?

    Primal Fuel
    I've never had a problem with dairy, and consume milk, butter and cheese on a regular basis. Is there any benefit to switching to almond milk but still having butter and cheese? All regular store-bought, organic when I can. The supermarket has 3 types of almond milk. Their organic brand one has organic sugar in it, and I'd rather stay away from sugar. Sanitarium does an unsweetened one, but it contains lecithin and carrageenan in it. So what would be the more primal option?

    Do you drink milk or alternatives, or stay away from all dairy?

    I don't really like the taste of almond milk and prefer coconut milk if I'm switching out. I get my milk raw from a farm though and just like to alternate with coconut cream for variety.

    While I'm not as vehemently anti-nut as Derpy, I do think they can be overdone. I would agree with NH that coconut is a good alternative to switch things up. If I didn't have access to raw dairy (and a friend who has goats), I might go completely coconut.

    I do like coconut milk, I might give that a go instead.

    Fermented dairy and cream is fine, just really try to stick to organic.

    I like almond milk because it's low calorie. But it's a bit of a Frankenfood.

    Yeah, coconut milk and almond milk aren't exactly interchangeable if you are consuming them in any kind of quantity. Coconut milk has way more calories. As to the OP's question, I would go with the kind without the sugar. Making your own is obviously best, but I'm assume you know that already. I have a carton of unsweetened almond milk in the fridge that I sometimes add too smoothies to make them a little runnier. But as others noted, it is a bit of a frankenfood so I only use it sparingly.
