Unsweetened almond milk (35 calories/cup)

Can add sugar substitute, sugar free syrups (like ones added to coffee) to make it taste sweet. Can be used in place of milk in cereals, pancakes, muffins, etc.

    Almond milk is the best milk ever - I love it!

    I love almond milk...doesn't upset my stomach like regular milk does! However I've never tried baking with it...

    I've been cutting back on dairy for a while. I avoid soy milk since as a vegetarian it is easy to eat too much soy in fake meats and such. The main thing I use milk for is cereal and almond milk is the first "milk" I found that I like as much as cow's milk; in fact I like it better on cereal. I prefer the original to the unsweetened; it adds just the right amount of sweetness to unsweetened cereals. I'm much more worried about eating to much artificial sweeteners than I am about a little sugar in my almond milk.

    I will get some almond milk this afternoon and try it. Thank for sharing.

    Thanks for the suggestion. I am using soy milk and there are many more calories in the soy. Thanks Pat in Maine.

    I'm trying this on my next trip to the store. I was looking for a low-carb alternative to mix with my protein powder. Can't wait to see how it turns out!
