    Can almond milk be used to make lattes with a commercial nespresso machine?

    Also, can oatmilk be used to make lattes with a commercial nespresso machine?

    Yes.. but it each brand will vary tremendously. The best is to use an Almond milk formulated for 'espresso machines', for example, the Barista series by Pacific Foods (my fav). They add an emulsifier so that it froths better and will hold up to the steam temp and not scorch.

    Ironically yesterday, when I was at Trader Joe's they, have renamed the Almond Milk... Almond Beverage.

    lol is this post a joke?

    be careful with almond soy and coconut. Especially almond will turn into water if u heat it too much. Make sure you especially get enough stretch and get a consistent whirlpool on your milk or you will see that the milk will turn, yep you betcha...watery.

    It will pour like sh*t too if its watery. I mean all almond milk is, is water and almond.

    It takes a steady hand and lots of practice to get almond milk the consistency you want it.

    blame wstsider for the derailment (joking)... it was a serious question by OP. For all non-dairy's I use the Pacific Food Barista series... looks like they use Carrageenan in the almond milk. The proteins must be similar because that's a common dairy emulsifier.

    Doesn't almond milk not mix well with coffee? Or at least that has been my experience. Never tried with oat milk though. Coconut milk and coffee tastes a little odd.

    Some brands mix better than others... but it certainly doesn't blend like dairy. I recently went dairy free so I've tried a half dozen or so brands now. So far, for hot drinks the best seems to be the Pacific Foods Barista almond milk, for cold I like Almond Breeze.
