Almond milk makes mac & cheese taste very weird.
I ate a granola bar at work tonight so I would be able to tide myself over to eat when I got home. I was looking forward to some mac & cheese when I realized my milk was bad. It claims it doesn't expire until Monday but it most definitely wreaked. I was already in the middle of making it so I tried to be resourceful and use some of my roommate's almond milk.
How different can it be, right? Let me tell you, it's VERY different! And not in a good way. It now tastes like vanilla and I don't appreciate a cheesy vanilla combo, especially after a long shift at work.
My guess is this applies to coconut, rice and hemp milk as well. Just for future reference...
