It seems like every time we go to the grocery store, there’s a new non-dairy milk on the shelf. But after giving them all a try, you know what? Almondmilk is still the one I come back to again and again. About eight years ago I switched from dairy milk to almondmilk. I was immediately hooked on the creamy, nutty flavor. It’s really a great alternative for anyone who is lactose intolerant or dairy-free for other reasons, or needs a low-calorie, low-sugar option. I especially love Almond Breeze® almondmilk Unsweetened Original for its neutral flavor and versatility. I buy both the shelf-stable and refrigerated Almond Breeze® depending on my needs.
What is it about Almond Breeze® that makes it my go-to? Here are some reasons why I love it:
1. It helps me keep my calories in check.
A cup of Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Breeze® contains 30 calories, compared with 83 calories for a cup of skim milk. I try to avoid sugar as much as I can, so the fact that Almond Breeze® comes unsweetened? So convenient!
2. But it’s still got all the nutrients I need.
A cup of Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Breeze® provides 50% more calcium than skim milk. Almondmilk is an excellent source of calcium, Vitamin D and Vitamin E, so basically, you get all the nutrients you need with far fewer calories.
3. It’s great for those of us with lactose intolerance or dairy allergies.
I’m sensitive to dairy foods, but Almond Breeze® is a versatile substitute that can be used in so many different ways–Almond Breeze® almondmilk Unsweetened Vanilla in my morning cafe latte, Almond Breeze almondmilk Almond Cashew Original to make creamy pureed soups, Almond Breeze® almondmilk Hint of Honey to make the perfect green smoothie. There’s literally an almondmilk for everything!
4. Almond Breeze is the real deal.
For over 100 years Blue Diamond®’s cooperative of expert California almond growers have been producing almonds of the highest quality. When you buy Almond Breeze®, you can feel confident that you’re getting delicious, creamy, flavorful almondmilk from the very best almonds down to the very last drop.
5. Almondmilk just tastes better.
Simple as that! No matter how you use it, you’ll taste the difference–even in a bowl of cereal.
If you haven’t tried ice cold Almond Breeze® over a bowl of Honey Nut Cheerios™, you don’t know what you’ve been missing! If you’re a fan of cereal milk, the dynamic duo of Almond Breeze® and Honey Nut Cheerios™ is going to be your new go-to. One of my favorite things to do is sprinkle the Honey Nut Cheerios™ with a little ground cinnamon or add some fresh fruit. Seriously, favorite cereal ever! Mornings are always hectic around my house and we often turn to Honey Nut Cheerios™ as a quick and tasty breakfast before heading off to school and work. And I’ll be honest, I buy boxes two at a time because we also enjoy Honey Nut Cheerios™ for after school and bedtime snacks too–not just for breakfast! I love knowing that our breakfast cereal of choice offers a full serving of whole grains as well as being a good source of 12 vitamins and minerals, including calcium and iron. Honey Nut Cheerios™ are also low in fat and gluten-free. Almond Breeze® and Honey Nut Cheerios™ are totally #BreakfastBFFs
