I have a pretty sensitive palate and this is my first real time drinking nut milk straight, I've tried Pacific Brand (not raw, but it was my first time)... help!

why not make some of each in your blender and see which you like best. be sure to chill them first though. ;)

I don't like any of the non-dairy milks that you can buy in the grocery store. Almond, rice, soy...I've tried them all, and they've all grossed me out.
But I LOVE homemade almond milk! It's the easiest thing to make. Just soak a cup of almonds and then blend it with 2 cups of water and handful of dates. Strain it to get rid of all of the pulp (otherwise it will have a yucky texture), chill it and there ya go! Delicious!

I made 2 batches for the first time of almond milk...one vanilla and the other chocolate..what a treat.. so yummy.
I haven't tried hemp milk yet... but would like to know about it's taste and how to make.

I love my homemade Almond milk. Yesterday I added Cinnamon, Stevia, a tad of Vanilla, and a pinch of salt. My daughter drank some and tasted like a yummy Christmas drink. I used that almond milk and mixed in Chia Seeds to make some pudding, it was very tasty. I chopped up a very ripe banana and mixed it in.
As for the hemp milk, I would love to know the ratio of hemp to water. I also heard you don't strain the pulp in the hemp milk??

I have to add my 2 cents here ... <g>
A couple years back I tried making a large jug (a little over 1 litre) of almond milk manually. Argghhh! What a job! 45 minutes and a mess later, with some of the almond milk mysteriously landing on me <g>, I had a pitcher of it. It was delicious but I sure as heck was never, ever going to go through that process again!! I then decided to invest in a SoyQuick. Man, no fuss, no muss and _for_me_ worth every single darn penny!
The mylk is literally ready in about 5 minutes or less, with most of that time being the machine doing the grinding! Very little human intervention needed to make the mylk itself, really!! <g>
You put the strained, soaked almonds into the mesh cup. Attach it to the SoyQuick blades. You add water to the SoyQuick chamber, put the lid with filled mesh cup on top, plug in, punch the buttons in such a way to just activate the grinder (without the heating element) and walk away. In 3 1/2 minutes or so, come back since it's done.
Pour into a jar, remove almond pulp and put in a jar in freezer and then wash the SoyQuick.
Nothing could be easier ... and NO MESS, really!!! <g>
I imagine any good soy milk maker would work that has an independent grinding feature that doesn't turn on the heater.
A pitcher of almond mylk lasts me about 2 days and I'm left with a lot of pulp that I dehydrate into almond flour.
Now to just find recipes for that flour!!! <g>

Wow, thanks for posting!!
I thought you could only use Soybeans in those makers.
Great to know you can use almonds.
I will have to keep my eyes open for one of those.
