Hey there! About two months ago I discovered a fantastic new drink that has remarkably changed my feelings about the plain old cow milk. (Don’t get me wrong, cows are great but they’ve got some competition!)

This milk that I am talking about is called Almond milk. Almond milk is a nutritious and natural alternative to regular milk. Full of vitamins and minerals, this milk has quickly become my new favorite! And for those who are lactose and tolerant, this is your new go-to. It is lactose and even soy free. I usually prefer the unsweetened almond milk because of fewer calories and no sugar! The brand, Blue Diamond creates a multitude of flavors including dark chocolate and vanilla. The dark chocolate is even in to-go sizes which is a great snack on the run instead of candy bars or potato chips!

I add this flavorful drink to my cereal and I even put it in my iced coffee as an extra nutritious bang to my black coffee! I am still getting calcium from this milk which is a concern for all who need to make sure they have strong bones! Pick this alternative up at grocery stores like Wal-Mart, Martin’s, Target, etc. I promise you will not regret adding a milk where there are no preservatives or added hormones that are sometimes in regular cow milk. And, it does not have as much cholesterol and is not high in unhealthy fats!
