Almond Milk Bargain

The fresh almond milk is £1 a litre at the moment in Saisbury's. Needs to be kept in the fridge but has a long use by date of over 2 months

:like: Even when supermarkets charge their full price for Almond Milk I consider it the best swap I ever made. :smile: I could never stomach skimmed milk or UHT varieties, :razz: but since swapping from my usual semi skim, my asthma and sinus problems have vastly improved- which I am convinced is down to reducing dairy intake. I use Almond milk in porridge....can't stand it made with water :lol: and I use it in my fresh fruit smoothies (YUMMY) at only 26cals per 200ml it saves on cals too :grin:

how does almond milk taste compared to SS milk? Been considering swapping to it, but don't want to swap only to find out I don't like it and have wasted a pound (yes I know, a horrific amount!) Also how does it taste with tea? I can't survive a fast day without my cuppas!

I'm not that keen on it as a substitute in tea and coffee. I use it on my one bowl of cereal a week ( close your ears low carbers) I make porridge and bircher muesli with it and on fast days I make a cup of cocoa with 200 mls of it at bed time - around 30 cals and I think nicer than the low cal hot chocolate type drinks. The unsweetened type has less than half the calories of skimmed milk

Depends on the brand completely. They are all wildly different.

My fave shop bought one is sweetened So Good. It's so good (pardon the pun) i have to limit purchases or i can drink a litre a day.

Love it cold from the fridge, straight.

I cant or dont like to drink cows milk. Used to have rice milk but then changed to Oat milk till i discovered almond milk

dont think almond milk is suitable for either tea or coffee as it has a flavour in itself

I made Yorkshire puddings with my almond milk the other day and they were yummy.I think it adds a nice taste to my coffee.

I admit that my taste buds are not the most refined....but I don't mind Almond Milk in tea or coffee. It is nicer than Soya Milk. I have not entirely switched but I am trying to reduce dairy in general, as I have too much milk and yoghurt......

I once made leek and potato soup with sweetened almond milk by mistake. That was disgusting!

I do use unsweeted almond milk, but I prefer coconut milk and will always buy that when it is available. I've never liked cow's milk very much.

I'm a coconut milk fan too. I have it in chai. Lovely. I would have it in porridge but of course I no longer have porridge. Oooohhh those naughty carbs! I bought some almond milk on the advice of Rawkaren because it's good for sleep but for some reason I can't bring myself to try it! I was going to make hot chocolate with it. Silly and I don't know why.
Thanks for letting us know about the bargain Lil

The long life Alpro almond milk is currently on offer at £1 a litre in Sainsbury's. I just managed to get some this morning on my 3rd attempt - it seems to be flying off the shelves

My favourite drink at the end of a successful fluid fasting day is piping hot unsweetened almond milk with 2 squares of cooking chocolate melted into it. By thus time of the fast day I am not counting calories just want comfort. This drink hits the spot in spades . Yum :sleepy:
