View Full Version : do you still drink milk?

02-18-2014, 08:36 PM
i dont. i dont even put it on cereal anymore.

having a big glass of cold milk never registers with me anymore. not even with cookies or brownies :)

i just watched a man order a glass of milk at lunch with his burger. very foreign to me. i think i got one glass when i was younger than 10 yrs old..it came early and it came less than cold. bleech..turned me off of milk from restaurants forever.

i do drizzle some half-half in my coffee if it is scorching hot. i eat cheeses, yogurts-plain..cottage cheese. just dont drink milk. i do use it as an ingredient. i dont remember the last time i bought anything more than a quart of milk. a gallon..wow, been a long time.

cereal? soy or almond "milk".


my coworker just got a call from the wife. he had to run to the store. he said he buys 4 gallons at a time..for his kids!! WOW!

Not as much anymore but with cookies or brownies or anything of the sort its a necessity as well as some half and half in my coffee

02-18-2014, 08:40 PM
^yea. cookies!!

as an asian man..i think statistically, i should be lactose intolerant. i like milk..just never drink it. weird.

I don't drink as much milk as I did when I was a kid but I still go through at least a gallon a week

I drink at least a liter a day. Couldn't live without milk.

02-18-2014, 09:07 PM
nothing like a good milk shake or a good glass of chocolate milk

I'm lactose intolerant and I drink about 1L of milk a day. when I was young one glass would make me sick, not anymore :biggrin:

I stopped drinking milk years ago when I was trying to lose weight and found that when I went back to it I couldn't touch the stuff - not even ice cream!


02-18-2014, 09:42 PM
I drink every day, as well as I eat home made yogurt as well
I am from Europe so no lactose problems

Hahaha Dave. That's awful tho, I dunno what I would do without milk.

02-18-2014, 10:02 PM
I don't usually drink milk straight, but I do put it in coffee every now and then (or half-and-half if available), and I froth some every morning for my cappucino.

Besides that, I get it indirectly through cheeses, yogurt, etc.

02-18-2014, 10:07 PM
Cottage cheese, yogurt, cheese of all sorts, but never milk. Hate the taste! Always have.

Love milk. I use it on my Golden Grahams and now and then will have a tall one.

I have not had a glass of milk in a long time either. I too use it in cooking, and I eat milk products, mainly cheese, and a bit of cottage cheese in my lasagna.
I even stay away from ice cream and shakes now. I drink coffee black, so not any cream either. I think about a little ice cream or even a shake now and then, but I always change my mind. I do enjoy a bit of sour cream now and then.
So I guess I would say you are not alone.
I remember when I was quite young starting to eat hot oatmeal, rather than cold cereal, because I could have it without milk. I might have been 7 or 8.
I has ice cream when I was older than that, but I seem to have lost the taste for it.

NO ChoP!

I drink it by the gallon.

Milk, orange juice, black coffee and diet coke. Lots of all.

02-18-2014, 11:14 PM
I can't remember the last time I drank a plain glass of milk.

02-18-2014, 11:14 PM
I am not really a fan of straight milk, but we eat custards 2-3 times a month. I make alot of ice cream and coffee as well, so we use a fair amount of milk. If I do get a pop tart, which I haven't eaten one in many years, it just doesnt taste good with any thing besides a glass of milk. I like 2% in my cappuccino more than whole milk.

I was raised in the country, so I'm going to go with yes.

I stopped all dairy about a year ago for the most part (on a rare occasion, I have a slice of pizza, a cheese on a burger or cream in a sauce or soup), and don't miss it at all. I also don't eat pasta or bread and no processed sugar. Energy-wise I feel so much better.

True, prevalence of lactose intolerance is much lower amongst people of European descent, but certainly not nonexistent.

As long as it's steamed and has espresso in it.......

02-19-2014, 04:53 AM
Yes and lots of it out of a frozen glass from the freezer. Nothing better sometimes than ice cold milk!

02-19-2014, 06:01 AM
Soy/rice/almond milk. It's either that, or 'Depends'. :(

02-19-2014, 08:26 AM
Every morning with cereal, and a splash in the coffee. Switched to 2% about 10 years ago, man I miss whole milk. My daughter had a friend over whose family only buys skim milk, when she had 2% she was like wow!! why does your milk taste so good.

02-19-2014, 08:28 AM
Milk is for baby cows.

i LOVE soy though...

Skim milk is stuff of the devil. Such a waste of good milk.

I stayed away from milk for a while, but I drink it in small quantities now or use it to make my breakfast shakes on mornings when I'm in a rush (or lazy). I can only drink organic milk though - regular "factory milk" makes my gut seriously wonky. It's not the lactose because organic milk has that, and I'm totally fine with yogurts and cheeses.

Used to drink a lot of soy milk, but chose to move away from that. Still like the asian soy milk with the soy bean taste for a treat though :)

PS. I drink whole milk. What's with that skimmed milk stuff? :D

02-19-2014, 12:03 PM
No milk for me thank you!! I do eat cheese occasionally and plain Greek yogurt, some fresh ice cream a couple times a year, but that's about it. I use it for cooking occasionally, but I substitute almond, or coconut when I can. For cereal I water down some fruit juice 50/50.

02-19-2014, 12:06 PM
I drink at least a gallon a week. We go through at least 4-5 gallons a week between 4 of us in the family with the 16 month old drinking probably 2 gallons of whole milk. I drink mainly skim but sometimes mix the whole with skim.

02-19-2014, 02:21 PM
Whole milk is still reduced to only 3% fat or so.

The food co-op here sells some dank raw milk. I switch between drinking milk or kefir.

02-19-2014, 02:25 PM
Skim milk is like water hate that stuff

02-19-2014, 06:52 PM
As a kid I couldn't stand the stuff unless it was very, very cold. I love cheeses, yogurt, ect. If I get some milk I can drink a gallon in a week, but usually I end up throwing it away.

02-19-2014, 08:16 PM
I love cheese and eat a lot of it. Not drinking milk allows me not to worry about any other milk product. Lactose intolerance is, in my case, all about quantity.

02-23-2014, 04:52 AM
I hate white milk, Yucky. On the rare occasion that I have cereal, I use milk but don't drink what's left. Same for cookies. I actually prefer cookies or donuts dunked in coffee. When a recipe calls for milk I'll use half 1/2 & 1/2, half water since milk has too many carbs and sugar for me.

My kids, they go through 2 gallons of whole milk a week.

02-23-2014, 09:00 AM
Love me some milk. I grew up drinking it and never stopped. It has to be cold. If I get dessert while out, I will have them put a glass in the freezer ahead of time so it's nice and cold when my dessert comes. People look at me weird if I order it but I think they're the weirdos for not drinking it.

02-23-2014, 12:18 PM
Chocolate milk after the gym,2% with cereal..

02-23-2014, 12:24 PM
I love me some chocolate milk

02-24-2014, 03:12 PM
I drink milk, but only with breakfast, or by itself. I think having milk with lunch/dinner is weird.

02-26-2014, 09:47 AM
I used to be addicted to milk as a kid, never have it anymore. I very rarely have it in a cup of tea, but that is about it. Never by itself and I don't eat cereal anymore. Very strange. Cream, on the other hand, I could consume all day.
