the original flavor tastes and feels like regular (pasteurized) milk without giving me the postnasal drip. i'm flirting with the idea of using it for yogurt or kefir - it's much cheaper (per oz) than canned coconut milk and has a much thinner consistency. i'm not enamored with the sweetener in it though - fermenting should gobble that up though.

Good idea! Now I need to get some of that Gipro non-dairy yogurt starter. . .

It has guar gum and carageenan so it's no good for either of my kids. I have to stick to the canned stuff. Though I guess I could drink it, but why bother when they can't.

I'm so negative. This must stop.

Thanks for the heads up. My oldest can have it. I would love to get him off of rice drink. I wish that my youngest and I could have coconut.

Okay, I got some and it's really good. It's doesn't have a strong coconut flavor, so you could easily use it in savory recipes. It doesn't have much protein, of course, but it's got more fat which is great if your lo's can tolerate it.

now, the turtlemountain coconut milk ice cream... no guar gum there (at least i don't think it is in the vanilla or chocolate)... it's a quick treat when i'm too lazy for making ice cream. stay away from the cookie dough flavor - lots of extra ingredients (for the GF cookie dough, presumably).

Just got some - it's very good - but DS still refuses to drink it. I think I'll try using it to dilute his kefir tomorrow - he ran out today!

the turtle mountain ice cream does have guar gum in it, IIRC. but they have a disclaimer on the carton about it being some teeny tiny amount just for processing to preserve creaminess (not saying it would be okay, kathy, but just putting that out there).

the ice cream is sweetened with agave, of which i'm not a fan - both flavor and nutrition-wise. i'm surprised the milk is sweetened with sugar. (although, there is an unsweetened variety...)

What is the cost like compared to other milk subs? WE don't have it around here.

The Purely Decadent ice cream has guar gum in it, and DS can't do it (I don't know how much they use in theirs). I like that it's agave because DS and DD2 can both have it (DS can't have cane sugar). Of course, since he can't have guar gum, I guess it doesn't matter what it's sweetened with!

It's some good stuff! They also make yogurt in a ton of flavors, and ice cream...both of which are fantastic!

$3.99 for a half gallon here, which makes it a lot cheaper than my hemp milk.

Wow, that is way cheaper. I will have to check for that the next time I get to go to St. Louis.

I was so excited to find it at my local grocery store in the natural food section. I didn't even have to go to Whole Foods!

I wish CP! My grocery stores have rice milk(rice dream only) and soy milk! The hfs has hemp, oat, almond and soy milk but the prices are literally 2x what they are anywhere else! So, I stock up when in St. Louis. We don't do rice dream obviously and generally avoid soy.
