Quoted from ArwenLegolas
I bought a Montel Williams Health Master Blender it is Polycarbon, not plastic, from Fingerhut on credit. $13.35 a month


How do you like that blender?  Is it BPA free?  I know Montel Williams is very concerned about his health....so don't think he'd put his name on a product with BPA....it's just that I read that polycarbonate contains BPA.

Almond butter and water sounds like a good idea.  
Thanks!

boy it sure does!  but Almond butter is an avoid for me now.  

so i'm back to plain soy with only water added.  no additives.  it's a black dot but I have nothing left except water buffalo milk which is not available yet.    i figure it's a black dot cause i'm in menapause... and because of the hormonal activity it will cause. not sure.

i stopped coffee so i don't need it in much.. but i'll sometimes put a bit in my ginger tea or whatever.

BluesSinger, water mixed with just about any nut butter would make a compliant "milk".  Can you
have hazelnuts?  Any nuts at all?   The interesting thing about a nut butter is that the oils gives
any liquid a creamy mouth feel.

BluesSinger, you might be able to make a "milk" from sesame butter and water...a thinner tahini.
Or even pumpkin seeds made into a butter and then into a milk.
Never tried it but it might taste okay. Carob is a diamond for you as it is for me.  You could also try making a fudge using tahini, or a pumpkin butter, carob and whatever dried fruit you can soak and pulverize into a thick paste and then mix together and refrigerate.  Kind of like a raw brownie.  

Do you get any dried fruits?  FIgs, dates? Prunes?

A lot of people like hemp milk made from the hulled seeds.  They blend up very easily and have a very good essential fatty acid balance.

I've never had a problem ingesting cashews.. but I tried the mimi cream and it made me feel sick..
I used to make 'whipped cream' out of them for my dairy free pies.. It was wonderful...

What about soy?  Is it a neutral? My O son did fine on soy. Now I switched him to almond milk but he still drinks soy milk sometimes.  Now my B son gets a reaction from soy. He can't tolerate it.

I see you said you were using the soy creamer. That made me sick too. Drea, made a soy 'creamer' out of
soy milk with no carageenan in it ...like Westsoy and she added lecithin to it ...(sweetner?)  and she said it didn't curdle.  I'm just using almond milk now.

I'm just using plain soy milk.. no sweetener, no additives.  i forget the brand at the moment.  it's a black dot because i'm in menapause.. so i'm sure it's related to hormones.  but as soon as i get my hands on some buffalo milk, i'm off soy for good!  

hey btw.. do you think i could take some buffalo mozzarella cheese and blend it up with some water and make a form of milk?  humm...
