Almond Breeze

Milk does a body good, right? Unfortunately, a lot of people are lactose intolerant, and a lot of people just don’t like milk. I am not one of those people, however, Blue Diamond Almonds make a delicious substitute-Almond Breeze Almond Milk!! Almond milk is lactose free, soy free milk that comes in many different flavors to suit your needs or tastes. I have tried the Almond Breeze original, Almond Breeze original unsweetened, Almond Breeze vanilla unsweetened, and Almond Breeze chocolate. To be honest, I love them all!! They all have a deliciously sweet but not too sweet flavor that makes it so enjoyable. The unsweetened flavors have only 40 calories per 11 fl oz serving and the sweetened have 80 calories! The chocolate almond milk has only 160 calories per 11 fl oz! Each of these almond milks have less fat than regular 2% milk with only 3.5g of fat or 4g for the chocolate! My husband is lactose intolerant and a huge chocolate junkie, and he loves the Almond Breeze chocolate almond milk. I think my favorite is the original although I really do love them all. The Almond Breeze Almond Milk is free of dairy, soy, lactose, peanuts, cholesterol, gluten, eggs, MSG, and casein and is vegan!! For those of you out there who would love to be able to drink milk but can’t have it because of health issues, try Almond Breeze Almond Milk-you will love it!!
