Thread: Almond milk?

  1. #1

    Default Almond milk?

    Anyone ever offer this to their squirrels? I was pouring some today and Ed was very interested...its non dairy so no issues like cow's milk, and calcium fortified too

    Edited to say: I don't think it would have much more sugar that vanilla yogurt, and I wouldn't give him a lot but thought about mixing some with his ground rodent blocks as a change of pace.

    -BUT its $ 2,400 / colones/ quart = $ 5.00 qt....= $ 20.00 gallon...That is NOT an option for me...

    Thanks for the replies. I did give him a tiny splash in his dinner last night and he chowed down

    I wouldn't make it a daily thing, but a treat. It does come in a plain unsweetened variety as well. And the vanilla flavored one might make a good vehicle for getting meds in, if someone needed an idea of how to get meds into a squirrel.

    I use almond milk with no soy or lactose,,,,I mix it in with their formula and they do wonderful,
    I use esibilac 50 % goat and 50 % regular with 25 % almond milk, it has good calcium content and my squirrels are doing great.

    One important thing to remember if you use almond milk as anything other than an occasional treat:

    Almond milk has only about 1 g of protein per serving, while
    Cow's milk and goat's milk have about 8 g of protein

    I make almond milk, and don't add any sugar to it at all. I get (real) raw almonds (most "raw" almonds in the store are actually pasteurized) and soak them overnight, changng the water out a couple of times. Then I blend almonds and filtered water in my blender, and strain it. I also put the almond paste in my dehydrator to make almond powder. But there's no sugar or anything else, and it's a lot less expensive than buying.
