Flax milk?

Recently I received an email asking if I’d like to try a new product, Good Karma’s Flax Milk. Another way to get more flax in my diet? Sure, I’m interested!

They sent a carton each of original and unsweetened. Now, when I used freshly ground flax seeds, they definitely have a taste. A little grassy I guess. Not a bad thing, just a thing. So I was sort of expecting the milk to have a little aftertaste. But it doesn’t. And you know how they get kind of slimy when you whip them up with water to replace eggs? Nope, not a hint of that either. Turns out, it makes a nice, creamy milk. The original was great on cereal and in smoothies. And I used the unsweetened in mashed potatoes and as a replacement for soy milk in a tofu fish stick recipe. Kevin usually doesn’t like unsweetened milks, but used this flax one on cereal and liked it.

When I headed over to their website to write this up, I noticed that they have creamer too. Unfortunately, it looks like the only places near that carry it right now are Wal-Marts. Hopefully that changes soon.

    yay! thanks!

  3. Where are you buying this milk? I got some from Whole Foods, but I really can't stand going downtown every week. I was wondering who else had it?

    • Not sure where you are located, but my local health food store carries it, Sevananda. The store locator on their site seems to be broken. You could always email the company and ask about stores in your area.
