We go through atleast 3 gallons of whole milk a week. At my mom's house they go through a 5-6 gallons of 2% a week with 3 adults in the home.

Yes. Skim milk. Anything else tastes weird. I stopped drinking 2 percent in 2006. We go through about 3-4 gallons a week.

 I will not drink milk. I hate the smell/taste of it. I will cook with it.

No.

 

I make my own almond milk.  I will use whole milk/heavy cream in baking if I must, but just sitting there chugging another mammal's breast milk.... kind of weirds me out.

I have it in my tea, cereal and use it for baking. That's it.
