This is the first I've heard of it! Anyone tried it?

http://www.theguardian.com/lifeandstyle ... nvironment

The article is an interesting piece about how the peas come from France and is that really lower carbon than almond or dairy milk. I like this little quote though:

Quote:
Despite the disparities in measuring the environmental cost of almonds, peas, hemp or soy, [food mile expert David] Cleveland agrees with [Califia CEO Greg] Steltenpohl and [pea milk manufacturer] Ripple about one thing: all of the plant-based beverages are much better for the planet than dairy milk from cows, which produces copious amounts of methane.

they need a better name than pea milk (I haven't tried but I would)

*SNORT* (Agreed on both counts.)

I was in Germany recently where I saw yoghurt made of lupini milk. Unfortunately it was at a store at the airport on my way home so I couldn't buy it but I was intreagues. I ended up buying a vegan magazine that had a big article on growing and cooking with lupini beans, Europe's answer to the soybean. Apparently much better than soybeans to grow, same/similar nutrition etc. I bought a bag of lupini flour but have yet to try to make anything. I was going to try to make a milk out of it. My soymilk maker has a setting for mung bean milk which I haven't tried either. Also on my list of things to try. So pea milk, why not.

I have the chocolate, vanilla, and unsweetened original flavors. I don't really like the vanilla, but I'm not a fan of vanilla milks in general, so it has nothing to do with the product. The other two are good. The unsweetened original is very neutral, which I like. I think it will be good for cooking. If it doesn't curdle in tea, I'll definitely ditch the cashew.

I agree about the font; at a glance, it looks like npple.

I told my husband that the newest plant milk out is pea milk and he said "Noooooooooooo!!! Whyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy????" I agree, it sounds wrong, but I'd try it.
