Thanks to a response from hazelnut, I don't have to ask if you were referring to the member...or if they were now marketing "hazelnut milk" in addition the almond milk.

...I enjoyed goat's milk for a while, but the price went up too much. Guess I need to get a goat (LOL!)
Thanks, BooBoo. Are you happy with the results (aside from the price)? Have you ever used it to make a roux?

As for getting a goat, I'm still resisting the tiny urge to get chickens. I can't even think goat--especially with all of the natives that she'd gobble up!

I make yogurt from whole milk, and then strain and wrap the product in cheese cloth for a while -- home made cheese with a good dose of probiotics.
Thanks, hazelnut. Nice to see that you are still around.

I feel better about eating butter than margarine...and better about eating cheeses after reading your post. Thanks.

Yes, the Almond Milk is working out quite well for me. It was actually suggested by the dietician I see at the local clinic. I've never made a roux with Almond Milk or any other types of milk. In fact, I'ver never made a roux ever! LOL!! I don't like saucey stuff on my food (exception sphagehetti sauce.)

Thanks, BooBooBear. I might just have to try it myself.
