Many people are looking at milk substitutes these days and the range is getting amazing. I remember when the only real options were cows milk or soy milk, now there are a number of other substitutes that are both dairy and soy free.
Almond Breeze is the new offering from Blue Diamond Growers cooperative, the first grower owned cooperative with many of the growers being co-op members for generations; making for a lot of pride in their product.
There are some delicious varieties of Almond Breeze and they are all a much lighter addition to your day. Almond Breeze comes in: Original, Unsweetened, Unsweetened Vanilla, Unsweetened Almond and Coconut Blend, Unsweetened Almond and Cashew Blend and Chocolate.
A lot of testing went into the formulation of Almond Breeze to ensure that the finished product is smooth, delicious and creamy with just the right balance of taste and nutritional value.
Almond Breeze is Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Lactose Free, high in calcium and low in sugar. A perfect alternative for those looking for a healthier lifestyle. The Unsweetened varieties have less than half the calories of skim and reduced fat milk, the Original and Chocolate varieties contain raw cane sugar.
Almond Breeze is perfect to drink on its own, as well as substituting in smoothies, baking and cooking.
