Almond Milk

Recommended Posts

Wife and daughter are in Thailand currently visiting family. My daughter is allergic to cow's milk as well as coconut. While in the States, she was drinking almond milk. I'm trying to find out if almond milk is widely available (or available at all) in Thailand. They are currently in the Sakon Nakhon area. Wife has been trying to give her soy milk as a substitute but daughter isn't really wanting it.

Try a tops supermarket. Bet they would have it.

Not widely available, but rice milk should be a good alternative??

If not, you will need to make it.

Villa Market and Foodland both have it - imported from Australia, Price about 250 Baht for a big carton.

I doubt Tops has it.

Thanks everyone. Wife is using soy milk as an alternative for now as she couldn't find any almond milk. Daughter seems to be ok with it.

I saw it in Tops Khon Kaen. As another poster mentioned it is imported from Australia.

When we poor in America 70 to 80 years ago my family made this junk. Now the rich think they discover a miracle drink

Interesting. Can you help the poster find it in the LOS? One does not have to be "rich" to enjoy it.

Junk? Sounds like you didn't like it. Was it the actual taste, or embarrassment of being poor and different? Kids can be that way. You must have been in almond growing country because even then almond milk would have been more expensive than cow's milk.

Anyway, almond milk is a very healthy drink.

It is definitely available at Villa Market, although the home made is much tastier and you can make it more concentrated that the too-diluted store-bought almond milk.

It's easy to make your own almond milk, but one of the great things about Thailand is all the dairly milk alterntaives. You can get sesame milk, jobs tears milk (so good), corn milk, hazelnut milk, oat milk - go to Tops if you can, they have the best selection.

They definitely have it at the Gourmet Market in the basement of Siam Paragon. It's roughly about 330 Baht per liter. I saw it there last week.

I love the stuff they sell in the States... but I suppose you could mix up a good recipe. Personally, I would use coconut water as a base. It is pure and fresh. Then add some Almond mush (get a recipe online) and a drop of vanilla extract. mmmmmmmmm super nutrients and fresh. Serve ice cold, or add yogurt and fruit for a splendid smoooooothiee.

Come to think of it, I am going to get a blender tomorrow. Banana, almond mush, coconut water and a drop of vanilla. A slice of banana for some smacking sweetness.

Add a drop or two of almond extract to soy milk or any of the 'milks' for that matter and give it to her. No Costco yet in Thailand. Unfortunately.
