For as long as I can remember, I’ve liked the taste of both dairy milk and soy milk the best (I love a good milkshake, and I’m happy with either of these types of milk in my milkshake) but due to some recent health concerns, I am testing out some alternatives for these.
And please note: This post is not evaluating the nutritional value or content of these milks; just the genuine opinions and conclusions I came to as a result of this taste test, because, hey, if it doesn’t taste good, there’s not much point, right? In that case it would be better not to drink it at all!
So, on to the current taste test results:
The oat milk gets my vote for first place, even though it was quite sweet. The sweetness could be a good thing however, as when I used it on my cereal I didn’t even need to add any honey to it, because the oat milk was sweet enough already. It tasted pretty good in tea (this is very important), which is another reason why it came first in my taste test. 🙂
The almond milk gets second place, again mostly because it wasn’t too bad in my tea. 😉 It was not too sweet, but would still take some getting used to for everyday use.
The funny thing is, on initial tasting (on their own), I voted:
2 . Oat
But… on a second tasting (in my tea, and therefore my final verdict) this changed to:
… which means the oat milk is a clear winner (in the top two), the coconut milk not so much (in the bottom two), and it really looks like I just can’t make my mind up about the hemp and almond milks.
A little inconclusive, I realize…
This milk thing is a little moody.
Like anything, I guess it is going to take some detective work and some adjustment.
Ah, I think I really need a cup of tea with some half and half right about now… 🙂
