What's everyone going nuts about?
Almond milk is one of an ever-growing line of non-dairy alternatives to traditional cow’s milk.
There are a few varieties and brands of almond milk making their way into South Africa.
I have sampled the Almond Breeze brand.
Almond Breeze Almond Milk is available in three variants at the moment in South Africa; Original, Unsweetened and the Barista Blend.
It is available at: Pick n Pay, Checkers, Spar, Food Lover's Market, Dis-Chem and Wellness Warehouse.
I'm not one to add sugar to things I consume so, Almond Breeze Original was a little too sweet for my liking. I would imagine that this would probably be your best bet if you're wanting to make the switch from dairy milk to almond milk. The Original Almond Breeze Milk is sweet and tasty.
Having said that, I really enjoyed the Unsweetened Almond Breeze!
I used it in cooking, baking, cereals and smoothies. It has a neutral clean taste, with a slight but not overpowering sweetness. You can clearly get a taste of that almond goodness within.
The only thing that I added my almond milk into that I didn't enjoy was my coffee. I couldn't get the milk to froth well. Cue the introduction of The Barista Blend from Almond Breeze. A variant of Almond Milk specifically made for coffee making! How awesome! The Barista Blend was made to compliment the finest coffees in the world and provide the correct consistency to froth for visual presentation.
Almond Breeze is vegan, vegetarian, dairy-free, egg-free, gluten-free, peanut-free and are soy-free.
Overall, I would highly recommend trying the products and finding which would suit your needs most. I will definitely continue using the unsweetened Almond Breeze Almond Milk and am really keen to try out the Barista Blend!
It's a great healthy alternative to dairy milk and leaves you feeling healthier... and I think, we all want to feel healthier.
