I’ve never been a big drinker of dairy. Since I was a child, it’s always bothered my belly a bit, and having been vegan in the past, I made friends with almond milk a long time ago.
I’ve tried many varieties of milk alternatives over the years — rice, soy, almond, coconut — but as a lover of coffee and tea, almond milk is my favourite. It seems to taste best in my beloved hot beverages, as well as in my daughter’s cereal, smoothies, or on its own.
Almond Fresh — a Canadian company under the Earth’s Own umbrella — is a brand I’ve used and loved at home for years. I’ve used this almond milk in my baking, in soups, and other recipes (including this Gluten/Egg/Dairy-Free Blueberry Buckle!).
The vanilla Almond Fresh is especially good in coffee (just sweet enough!) and my daughter always asks for the chocolate Almond On The Go! drink boxes. We never have juice boxes so this is a big thing for her — and because they’re shelf stable I feel safe keeping them in the car/a lunch bag on longer road trips.
I find the overall taste of Almond Fresh products refreshing, pleasant, with the perfect mix of rich nuttiness that makes almond milk so popular. It’s versatile, healthy, and a choice I feel good about for my fam.
Like I said, I’ve never been one to drink much dairy — and I’ve never really sat down with a glass of milk, BUT I’m happy to sip almond milk (and maybe even dunk a cookie or two in it!) Actually, almonds in general are big around our house. One favourite snack of ours is dates and almonds — bonus tasty points if you cram an almond inside a Medjool date and chomp away. Sweet, satisfying, and healthy. Gotta love that!
Some health-happy facts about almond include: being low in fat, filled with good stuff like Calcium, Vitamins D and E, as well as easily absorbed antioxidants, AND they’re cholesterol free. Yum!
