While Summer is rapidly coming to an end (my children start school this week!!!!!!), I'm not quite ready to let go. See, here in New York our Winters can be really brutal. Lo and behold, the Farmer's Almanac has called for a really harsh Winter this year, so my death grip on Summer has gotten a bit tighter. Fall is definitely my favorite season, but I know what comes shortly thereafter so.... In my life, I have been trying to extend some Summer flavors into the rapidly approaching Fall so that I can hold as much of Summer with me as possible. One of my favorite ways to do this is with Almond Breeze Vanilla Almond Coconut Milk Unsweetened.
I really love how much variety I can find with the Almond Breeze Almondmilks. From hint of honey, to the original, and now vanilla and coconut! What's great about Almond Breeze Almondmilk is that it really caters to individuals who have certain sensitivities. It is dairy-free, soy-free, lactose-free, cholesterol-free and gluten-free. Even for those without dietary restrictions, the Almond Breeze Vanilla Almond Coconut Milk Unsweetened is all-natural, contains 50% more calcium than milk, and is only 45 calories per serving. It makes it such a healthy alternative. It's also a wonderful option for those who follow a vegan diet.
.I grew up drinking cows milk so sometimes the unsweetened varieties of Almondmilk take a little getting used to for me. I tend to use them in my smoothies which are naturally sweet from the fruit, or in my cereal, although, on a particularly hot day, I did enjoy a glass of the Almond Breeze Vanilla Almond Coconut Milk Unsweetened with a slice of apple pie. I really love the subtle hint of coconut that it brings to the drink. It's perfect for Summertime, and I found out one morning when I ran out of my traditional coffee creamer, that this too makes a fine and tasty replacement. I admire all of the benefits that it brings to the table, and even though I (or my family) do not have to follow any particular dietary restrictions, I am glad that I introduced this variety of milk to my children while they were still young. They especially love the Vanilla and Chocolate Almondmilks.
I give Almond Breeze Vanilla Almond Coconut Milk Unsweetened 10 stars:
