Almond Milk

Did you guys know about this?? Why didn’t you tell me?!?!

   

Seriously.  Why didn’t you tell me? I have noticed at smaller coffee shops they offer this as an option, it’s usually more expensive though (and I am thrifty…and happy was happy with nonfat milk) so I never ask for it.

I am probably behind on this trend, like way behind, which would be typical.  Do I care? No. Why? Because now I have found almond milk and I am never letting it go.

According to the carton (I bought Silk Pure Almond, but Blue Diamond Almond milk is good too) Almond Milk is like milk, but far more awesome:

  • 50% more calcium than milk
  • only 60 calories per serving
  • NO cholesterol
  • 100% lactose and dairy free
  • No need to skeptically look at and sniff the milk jug every couple of days because I am paranoid that it is going sour
  • It comes in dark chocolate (WHAT?!?!)
  • Bonus: there are ALWAYS coupons for Almond Milk (various manufacturers) in the newspaper and online
Ok, enough advertising.  You get it, this stuff is great.  So again, why have I been drinking non-fat milk when I could have had Almond? Well, I admit that I go to Starbucks too often and they have soy but not almond milk.  Soy is more expensive at Starbucks…unless you have a gold card, like me (Yay!), which I need to start using more… 🙂   But nonetheless it is not almond, so please excuse me while I head over to MyStarbucksIdea.com and start supporting all of the threads discussing almond milk.  Have a great Monday everyone and go try some Almond Milk in your latte or brewed coffee this week.  I want to hear what you think, comment below please!

PS. This post was in no way sponsored by an almond milk manufacturer, this is just typical me, being behind on tasty/healthy/alternative coffee choices.

  1. I’ve put almond milk in coffee, but have found it to not have a great taste. It could be that I use unsweetened almond milk, plus I”m used to using a tiny bit of half and half, so I might need to branch out a little more. PS-I really like your blog and all the coffee info 🙂

      I was looking at the unsweetened but decided I could spare the extra 30-ish calories…the stuff is already pretty healthy 🙂 Also, I add flavor syrup to my coffee (currently pumpkin pie or caramel), so that might have an effect on the taste. And another factor might be that I made espresso today and steamed my milk, which alters the flavor and makes it a little sweeter. Am I a sweet-o-holic much? Maybe…

      Thanks so much for stopping by. It is great to hear that people like reading about coffee as much as I like drinking it. I wondered across wordpress to your blog and congrats on the half marathon, Wow congrats again. Also, I just got The Hunger Games as a present, I didn’t know much about it but I liked what you had to say, now I’m excited to read it.

    With so many more people developing allergies and sensitivities to dairy products, finding tasty and cheap alternatives to milk can be a challenge. One tasty alternative that can be used in cooking and everyday use is almond milk. But honestly, almond milk can get pricey. Instead try making your own almond milk for a quick and easy project that is fun to do with the kids.-
