  • What about Elmhurst almond milk? Its non-GMO but not organic. Only almonds and water.
    Btw, thank you for all the videos…I LOVE THEM!

  • @2:26 am i the only one who caught that he was showing two different bottles? he was talking about the rounded bottle almond milk but, when he turned the camera on the back of the ingredients he was actually holding almond breeze.. i see someone paying this guy!!

  • WOW….aside from the taste, another reason why i dont like almonds…I didn’t know they weren’t environmentally friendly..a gallon of water to make one?? I get SO much from this channel! Thanks guys!

  • First time seeing this channel, and found all this info about non dairy milks very helpful, just what I needed. There’s so much choice now, which is great after so few plant based options in the past, but it can be confusing to know which is best.
    This indepth comparison is jus what I was hoping to find thanks. Look forward to checking out more videos.

  • What about non-dairy milk that genuinely has no dairy? I know this is a silly question, but my mom is severely allergic and has had adverse reactions to Silk.

  • Thank you for adding that bit at the end about the environment! Do you have any more info about better environmental alternatives/a scale/range? Thanks for the rest needed to know and didn’t have it all in one place!

  • Lies!!!! The plain one totally tastes like pea protein. Tastes like a vegan protein powder is in there. The vanilla one is ok, the chocolate one is the best! I only buy the plain one to use it for baking and such because I can taste the pea protein the most in it and it’s not a super pleasant taste on its own. Maybe someone with a bad taster couldn’t taste it but if you have an advantage palate you will. I’m going to make ice cream with it because it’s creamy enough. Will be interesting to put it to the test!

  • Absolutely love Ripple! I make my oatmeal with this milk. My favorite is Vanilla Unsweetened.
    Thank you Adam I feel and look great since adding Ripple to my daily diet.

  • Never talked about the dangers of natural flavors. Most of these drinks have natural flavors. I wished he would have explained that. Natural flavors can have up to 30 ingredients just to make the milk taste good. The sad part is they don’t have to tell us what natural flavor really is.

  • Art need to stay behind the camera with that goofy grin on his face, dude popping outtakes no where to get his 20 seconds of fame.

  • I love pea milk but this interview was so stupid. Atheletes who do research on health DO NOT DRINK COWS MILK. People dont drink almond milk for protein, they get it else where. I suggest people get amino acids from fruits and veges also as we have to break down protein to use it within our body which is an extra step.

    The milk industry has been getting by on propaganda and government subsidies and they want the gov to step in and curb their competitors?

    Dairy clogs your lymphs, it feeds bad bacteria in the body and contains saturated fats. I used to drink cows milk and now after doing research, wish I never did

  • Thank you for letting people know about the perils of Soy milk. It is heavily promoted as the best milk alternative to milk. Any woman who is prone to internal cysts finds out the hard way how perilous Soy products are.

  • The soy having estrogen is a myth. Yes it does have estrogen but so do most things. Estrogen won’t effect you unless it is in large amounts. Red meat has more estrogen than soy products by a large amount

  • So I’m really confused guys, can someone help me? The Oatly low fat has 7g of added sugar but there is no sugar in the ingredient list so where is it coming from? If it was just regular sugars I wouldn’t question it but it’s listed under the added sugars. Someone please help me out, thank you.

  • Lovely Video! Apologies for butting in, I am interested in your thoughts. Have you ever tried Dinanlinson Perfection Guide Approach (do a search on google)? It is an awesome one off product for discovering a collection of tasty paleo recipes minus the headache. Ive heard some unbelievable things about it and my best friend Jordan at last got great success with it.

  • You stated that’s it’s best to buy ORGANIC SOYA milk I was just told buy another company that it doesn’t matter if its Organic it’s not healthy to drink as it interferes with the absorption of essential minerals and vitamins such as calcium and vitamin D and can increase the risk of bone decay and osteoporosis. Is this true?

  • I am trying to get as close to sugar free as possible, but really starting to miss my chocolate chip cookies by the roll. Started going to Tropical smoothie: just have to ask for no sugar in the smoothies.

  • Hello, Great video in the beginning you said Diamond almond breeze milk was not good then you said it was better than the shelf Product. So is it safe to drink or not? 1:19

  • Waited for the whole video for Bobby to talk about the unsweetened GoodKarma flax milk and get a 1-second clip of a photo of the protein version, come on it was even in the cart!!!

  • I like to make sunflower seed/pumpkin seed milk for regular cereal use (usually use 1 date, VERY rare MAPLE allergy); also for “chocolate” milkI use 1-2 teaspoon carob powder

  • My family & I got these portable juicer blenders from (they’re on sale for 39.99!!” and we’ve been just bringing a variety of nuts & a strainer with us on camping / hiking / road trips so we can make oat milk & nut milks on the go!! We just recharge the blenders in the car with a USB & it has saved us so much money

  • I made the sweet potato (fake Oatmeal). It was awesome! Didn’t have exactly the same items as you but I would totally eat that at breakfast. Used it as a snack today. I did sweet potato, raisins, Apple cubes, cinnamon and almond butter with a splash of milk and maple syrup.

  • Great video. I just want to say that oils themselves are not emulsifiers. An emulsifier is like sunflower lecithin, which helps to bind water and oils.:)

  • You know I like your videos but I found out that ripple milk has natural flavor that you’re been warning us to avoid how is it safe for kids????

  • I’m so bumbed, thinking unsweetened Macadamia milk was good for me. Now I have zero optiona on milk substitute because I dislike almonds, coconuts and oats. sigh……

  • Ripple has natural flavors in it I went to target to buy it and checked the label and it’s literally in the ingredients how is that safe for ppl especially Kids

  • What do you recommend for someone who is allergic to tree nuts and lact dairy is not good either, are the options?? I tried soy milk few times but I’m hearing it is not good for male testerone levels

  • That sweet potato bowl though �� we consider ourselves to be flexible eaters but we try to go for more paleo options when we can! This video was so helpful!!!

  • What cleaning supplies do the job and are good to use without damaging the environment? Can you do a video about that please. I know you focus on food only but with this COVID 19 I would like to know.

  • Where has the sweet potato porridge been my whole life? I had it this morning and it was amazing. Sprinkled in a blend of chia seeds, flax seeds, hemp seeds and some granola. It added a nice crunch and it was so delicious!! ����

  • Meghan I just subscribed because I lijed your video. I need to loose weight abd I love eggs, really everything ��. But I’m going to try your recipies. Thks for sharing. Ciao��

  • I just found your channel love all your beautiful recipes what kind of pants are you using you’ve probably had this question 1 million times

  • I can’t do berrie’s ever since I saw people doing that Tik tok challenge. If you pour strawberries or berries of any kind in salted water and wait for a few minutes, bugs will start wiggling out. This is the result of fruit flies laying eggs and thus maggots.

  • Thank you for doing this video I want to start eating healthy lately I’ve been feeling out of shape so I’m gonna continue to work out staying away from sweets and juices for a few weeks to see how my body adapts.

  • 8:00 “Peas grow in the ground”

    and why is everyone so scared of GMO. Everything is GMO. Thats why there are different kinds of apples, peppers, dog breeds etc.

  • This is very informative. My kiddies have been having a hard time knocking a cold. I’m thinking we’re not consuming enough nutrients and our immune system is low. Good thing grocery shopping day is tomorrow.

    Can you do a video on feeding your family on a biweekly $100 dollar budget?

    We’re still transitioning from eating unhealthy. Some tips would be helpful.

  • Hello. In sweet potato salad you have add spring mix veggies and cilantro. So u have used raw one or cooked one. Because raw green veggies does not taste good. Do i have to cook them in oil or steam it??

  • I hate this guy but he knows his shit. I always come back to him because he is thorough with explanations, but he definitely irks me haha I like Art though.

  • Many thanks, I been tryin to find out about “paleo diet caveman recipes” for a while now, and I think this has helped. Ever heard of Elijaarqey Paleo Smasher (just google it )? It is a smashing one of a kind guide for discovering some amazing paleo recipes minus the headache. Ive heard some decent things about it and my buddy got cool results with it.

  • Wow I just love how much heart and soul you’re putting into your videos. I enjoy watching you and your ideas are impressive and simple at the same time. Have a lovely day:)

  • Milk contains iodine which is needed for cognitive child development.
    Be careful with this.
    Calcium and proteins occur naturally in milk. Conversely, soy is fortified hence not easier to absorb.
    Almond is low in protein.
    Just choose lactose free milk if you need to.

  • Im going to be gluten, dairy, and sugar-free. It has been hard to find meals like breakfast, that I can eat and this was so helpful! Thanks!!!

  • Sometimes I just have cereal and milk to be easy but I do enjoy cooking scrambled eggs and something with peanut butter too for extra protein and my energy is much better after!

  • I LOVE THIS VIDEO!!!!! I’m starting my journey on the paleo lifestyle and needed some options. I’ve made all recipes except the scramble and they all are delicious!!!! My favorite is the sweet potato hash brown egg nests. I add avocado and I swear I’m in heaven!!! The sweet potat-oats porridge is like a sweet treat. All of these recipes will be on heavy rotation. Thank you!!!

  • Omg just made the oatmeal with tahini instead of almond butter and bananas! �� Too good! Gonna need to save it for dessert not breakfast.

  • I’m allergic to dairy and I was gonna watch the video and just change the recipe a little if it had dairy but now I don’t need too!

  • I’m kind of annoyed by the fact that he was talking about one almond milk and the diamonds almond milks nutrition facts were shown

  • I’m not a vegan but diabetic and took a chance at buying the unsweetened ripple. To my amazement taste like milk. 8 grams of protein. No sugar and creamy. I could never get past the taste of all the other alternatives to milk. I saw the chocolate ripple but still has sugar so I wouldn’t buy it

  • I really am starting to LOVE eating healthier i dont believe in putting unnecessary/bad stuff in our body but i actually just made your sweet potatoe porridge yumm!!..delicious…im gunna do the pudding next but i was wondering if you can do a video on foods for gastritis…i was diagnosed with gastritis erosion an i kinda feel like its a blessing in disguise i was already eating healthy before well kinda but if u can do a video that would be GREAT!!!…

  • Excellent video content! Sorry for the intrusion, I am interested in your thoughts. Have you ever tried Dinanlinson Perfection Guide Approach (probably on Google)? It is an awesome exclusive product for discovering a collection of tasty paleo recipes without the hard work. Ive heard some super things about it and my mate at last got great success with it.

  • Great info! Thank you for the video. You mention grass fed beef having great nutritional benefits, we live in Alaska and hunt our own meat. What kind of benefits would you say wild moose has compared to grass fed beef?

  • Thank you for sharing! Luckily I include most of these foods in my kid’s diet but unfortunately, salmon is quiet expensive here for my budget. Any suggestions on that? Thank you <3

  • Hello Jessica, thank you so much for the helpful information. Your family is beautiful ��
    Questions: Do you recommend the MaryRuth k2+D3+calcium for toddlers or just the D3 and calcium separately? If so how will they get the K2?
    * We are vegan
    Thank you so much in advance!

    1:31 paleo sweet potatooat porridge
    2:52 sweet potato hash brown egg nest
    3:54 veggie and prosciutto scramble
    4:57 banana peach chia pudding

  • Gluten free, soy free, dairy free, 20 G Protein, GMO Free and low in Carbs! Like these better than Iconic Protein ready to drink protein shakes.

  • I’m curious why is there so much sugar in coes milk(is that sugar added ).and if so is that’s why all these new milk alternatives are out

  • To be truthfully honest ive never heard of pea milk until I found out my baby is lactose intolerant his peadritcian recommends it unfortunately it is very expensive need to learn how to start making the milk

  • The information that you gave about Soy Milk is a huge disappointment. Could you please research carefully while conveying the info? The soy beans which are GMO are only given to factory farmed animals which means, you animal products consumers are in a great danger, not us vegans… ��

  • You were right to point out that added sugar should be avoided. Watch out for added fat (in the form of oil) too. Oil is not a healthy fat!

  • Almond milk is nowhere near as bad for the environment as dairy milk. Dairy milk uses more water for example. Other plant milks are better for water use than almond milk, though. Animal agriculture contributes more to climate change than all transportation combined! Link on request.

  • I appreciate the fact that this company did something completely different from other vegan milks in using yellow peas and sunflower oil. It made it taste closest to real milk. Great stuff. I’m sold.

  • I’ve been using Ripplemilk for quite some time now. From my experience it has been one of the best alternatives. I haven’t had any dairy for almost a year now; yeah I don’t miss it one bit!

  • I think it’s silly to try to stop others using certain words. Vegan milk is called milk because it is used in place of cow’s milk for cereal, baked goods, smoothies in the exact same manner. The nutritious content is a different thing and consumers normally choose the one that fits their needs, for example, “snacks” can include a wide range of products from toxic (sugary, trans-fat laden cookies) to very healthy (nuts, seeds, kale chips) ones, so preserving certain words/terms just for one particular kind of product is not right.
    I have no problem with almond milk not containing much protein because we can get enough protein from other foods like beans, so the fact that almond milk tastes the best in my opinion, I’ll continue using it in my cereal, soups and baking:)

  • “Milk is a pale liquid produced by the mammary glands of mammals. It is the primary source of nutrition for infant mammals (including humans who breastfeed) before they are able to digest other types of food. Early-lactation milk contains colostrum, which carries the mother’s antibodies to its young and can reduce the risk of many diseases. It contains many other nutrients[1] including protein and lactose.” wikipedia
