I typically do most of my shopping at Trader Joe’s, but last week I found myself in a major time crunch and had to settle for a conventional grocery store…and I am glad I did!. While strolling through the dairy aisle, I noticed an increase in the amount of milk alternatives now available. While I still enjoy conventional cows milk- skim of course, I decided to change things up and try the unsweetened almondmilk and coconutmilk blend from Almond Breeze. The packaging made it look super delicious and at only 45 calories per 8 ounce serving, the only thing I had to lose was $3.99. I tried it first in my coffee as a creamer alternative. Yummy! Then, with some high fiber Cinnamon Burst Cheerios. Amazing! Do yourself a favor and try this combo for breakfast.
This is a great product for those with a lactose intolerance, avoiding gluten, soy, or want to shave a few calories here and there. I must point out, there is one gram of saturated fat from the coconut milk, but there are new studies that suggest major health benefits from medium chain fatty acids.
