Cultured Almond milk?

So… I’m working to ween myself of of animal products and by-products gradually.  A few days ago I discovered that you can purchase non-dairy yogurt (aside from the soy yogurt that has been out for a while) and I was super excited! Yogurt has been a part of my daily mourning breakfast routine since 2008 (before that I hated yogurt!  And anything else white and creamy…think what you will lol), when I learned the benefits it has for digestive and vaginal health:-)  But when I decided to embark on a new lifestyle that includes less of the animal stuff and more of the raw, fruity and leafy stuff, I was kind of devastated…

Now I learned of a couple other options to take the place of the dairy yogurt I had grown to love: cultured almond milk and cultured coconut milk!  I bought some of the cultured almond milk, and umm.. I can’t get with it.  Now it was my first time today, so I shouldn’t rule it completely out, but I do NOT like the way it feels.  The consistency is like gelatin, but it’s creamy and opaque (not a good combination).  I haven’t tried the cultured coconut milk yet, and probably will next, but does anyone know of a yogurt alternative (besides soy yogurt) that is vegan but has the same consistency as regular yogurt and all the above noted benefits?  Perhaps it’s just the brand I purchased? (Amande – you have to scroll down a bit to find it).

Please help!!

    With so many more people developing allergies and sensitivities to dairy products, finding tasty and cheap alternatives to milk can be a challenge. One tasty alternative that can be used in cooking and everyday use is almond milk. But honestly, almond milk can get pricey. Instead try making your own almond milk for a quick and easy project that is fun to do with the kids…
