In this Grocery Greats segment, ForXx is seeking out the tastiest, creamiest almond milks.
The milk market can be confusing if you are seeking an alternative to whole, 2 percent, non-fat or low-fat options due to lactose allergies or taste preferences. But what if you are looking for a different kind of milk all together? Rice milk, soy milk or coconut milk? I chose to replace my morning latte with a cup of almond milk sprinkled with protein and cinnamon. Sometimes, it even replaces breakfast. It’s a great post-workout drink as well. Each serving of almond milk contains about 4 percent of our recommended daily intake of iron, which helps muscles absorb and use protein for energy, growth and repair. The health benefits also help with skin, and even heart. I found a big difference in taste.
Silk Pure Almond Milk True to it’s name, it’s silky, smooth and tastes great. Silk has the distinction of making milk a liquid sensation–rather than just a drink. It’s smoothness is almost like a milkshake.
Whole Foods Brand, 365 This option is really good, flavorful and healthy. The vanilla flavor is a little more palatable than the unsweetened. It’s made with organic almonds grown right here in the USA. This is a great alternative to regular milk.
Almond Breeze by Blue Diamond This milk is not as thick but tastes pretty good. It’s almond factor is a little strong.
My grocery great choice this week is definitely Silk Almond Milk. $2.50 – $5 and is available at your favorite grocery store.
