Almond Breeze

No I am not talking about a new type of tropical breeze at the beach (however I wish I was).

Almond Breeze is a brand of almond milk, and mighty delicious I might add. 

As a member of Mom's Meet I was given the opportunity to sample and review their product.

One of the first things I changed when I moved to a vegetarian lifestyle was cutting out milk from my diet, and from that of my children.

I thought there would be some resistance to this new milk, but they switched over like troopers and now find cow milk a little weird.

Almond milk is smooth in taste and can be used to substitute milk in recipes (just be sure you are using original...not vanilla, I've made that mistake).  Even mashed potatoes taste creamy and delicious when almond milk is substituted.

I have tried a couple of different companies versions of almond milk and continually come back to Almond Breeze as I just prefer their flavor.

Speaking of flavors it comes in a small variety:

Original
Chocolate (seriously delicious and rich)
Vanilla

These flavors also come in the unsweetened variety.

You can buy Almond Breeze in the dairy aisle already chilled OR you can pick it up in tetra pak.

Tetra pak is a shelf stable packaging system that allows you to store your milk outside of the fridge until it is opened.

Something I just learned about tetra paks is that they can be recycled.  Learning this was music to my ears as now I can continue to enjoy the delicious taste, but I can also know that the packaging will be made into something else (like building materials, railway ties, or even flower pots).

My favorite way to enjoy Almond Breeze is either in a smoothie or in my cereal, although my kids thoroughly enjoy a chilled glass with chocolate chip cookies. 

I recommend the use of almond milk to my friends as a great alternative and one that is packed with nutrition.  I recommend it to you my readers as well.

For 3 of you I am going to be sending you a coupon to pick up a tetra pak of almond milk in your preferred flavor.

All I need you to do is leave me a comment below, any will do (for example what did you do for summer vacation or what type of almond milk would you try).  I will announce my winner on Wednesday August 8th.

If you would like to learn more about Almond Breeze feel free to check out their website or Facebook page.

  1. I would try the chocolate. I have not done anything on my summer vacay...we take a fall vacay to celebrate our anniversary. Do you know if people who are allergic to nuts would be allergic to almond milk? ~Tonya

  2. I love this brand of almond milk but I've never tried the chocolate. It always interests me when I see it in stores, though!
