Re: Milk is really weird, isn't it

I can't drink milk by itself and I'm certain this stems from being forced to drink those little bottles of milk in infants school (England, early '70's).  I remember trying to sneak over to the sink in the classroom and pour mine out because it was always lukewarm, must have been delivered by the milkman a few hours earlier and not refrigerated puke

I don't think that milk's weird though and I use it all the time in tea or for baking and cooking.

Re: Milk is really weird, isn't it

I could drink milk without a problem until I had my appendix out at 15.  Since then drinking milk makes me feel sick.  Doctor at the time wanted me to drink milkshakes after the op and as I felt sick,  puke  he had me add malt to the drinks and somehow this made it ok.

Anyhoo, since then I only drink milk in coffee, tea and mashed spud etc.  Occasionally I crave a glass of the stuff but I can control myself.

Milk's milk, if you can cope with it, fine - if you can't, that's fine too.... personally I prefer cheese...  yummy

Re: Milk is really weird, isn't it

I love milk. Used to drink about a litre a day when i was a teenager.

Fortunately most kids grow out of lactose intolerances.

Deb, there are loads of gluten free cake and biscuit recipes, check out the gluten free thread in recipe swap.

If you cannot take milk but want to use something in your drinks try Taam-Tov  Instant Creamer

Eww LMG I remember those days, our milk was left out in the sun and had usually turned before we got to it. I used to sneak into the nun's garden next to the milkshed and give mine to the cat lol

I don't like milk on it's own and the smell of warmed milk on its own makes me puke

Re: Milk is really weird, isn't it

I used to have the job of finishing off the milk before we went on holiday, it would be often close to 2L. I love it plain, it has a lovely taste. I can detect it going off before anyone else, it gets a creamy taste. Needless to say i've never had any fractures and my teeth are excellent.

Re: Milk is really weird, isn't it

cheese and yogurt are better options, milk had to be freezing cold for me to even try it, but then my stomac will start churning anyway! puke

Re: Milk is really weird, isn't it

I prefer the flavour of milk when it's warmer, it's has a very interesting taste and it's nice closer to room temperature where you can taste that. But not everyone is like me. Gluten intolerance suits me fine, lactose intolerance would have been a disaster.
