What could be better than Almond Milk?

Chocolate Almond Milk of course! I have used Blue Diamond's gluten-free regular or vanilla Almond Milk (Almond Breeze line of products) for some time on cereal in the morning, and I find it just as tasty as Soymilk for this type of thing. In fact, I overwhelmingly prefer Soy or Almond Milk to regular milk when it comes to my cereal. I find the nutty flavor of either one really complements the flavor of whatever grains are in the cereal.

I had not tried the Blue Diamond Chocolate Almond Milk until just a few hours ago, and, I must say, I really like it! I happened to see it for sale at Trader Joe's right alongside the other flavor I normally get, and I though - sure, why not give it a try. I am glad I did. The chocolate flavor and almond essence really come together for an overall great flavor. I can actually enjoy drinking it just for something different - and, it is another way to get a bit more calcium in the diet (or whatever other excuse I can find to get more chocolate into my diet) :)

I don't plan to start pouring the chocolate variety over my morning cereal, but I will keep it around for something to drink when I just do not want water or juice. And, for anyone allergic to Soy and dairy, this may be exactly what you are looking for in a milk-replacement. As an added bonus, it is gluten free!

Actually, Blue Diamond Chocolate does contain soy (it is dairy and gluten free however).

Chocolate almond milk is yummy, I agree. Lately I seem to stick to rice milk, but I tried hazelnet milk last week in my hot drinks for a flavorful homemade latte effect, and it is good, too.

So nice to have people to share ideas with. Sometimes it seems we are alone with our intolerances...but not so. Take care.

Diane, I have international order working for Australia, and I will be ready for the UK in another day or so. Thanks for being patient.

Michelle - thanks for the link!

Lynn, enjoy those lattes! Great for this cold-weather snap we're having.
