    Question Almond Milk

    Just wondering what people's thoughts were on almond milk... taste wise as well as nutritionally and if it's suitable in a clean eating diet?

    I personally drink almond milk because i used to be lactose intolerant and never got used to normal milk afterwards, and i dont believe in eating soy for a few reasons. Ive heard nothing negative at all about it, and i love the taste, almonds are healthy fats so i dont see anything wrong with incorporating it into a clean eating diet

    I've had to switch from regular milk due to lactose intolerance. I alternate between soya milk and almond milk depending on what i fancy. I got used to the taste, its pretty good and i see no reason you cant have it as part of a clean diet. If anything, ive lost weight since i switched to soya/almond milk.

    I love vanilla almond milk with a tiny bit of splenda added in. Yum! I'm sure the splenda nixes any health benefits the almond milk might have though. LOL

    ditto! It's great in coffee! (as well as cereal, or just in a glass...haven't tried it w/ protein). My son LOVES it!

    I heard on here somewhere though that there was a sugar free version? Is it totally sweetener free?
    Do not confuse the conditions in your life with the truth about you. Conditions may be influential, but they are not immutable.
    Conditions can, and do change!
    Circumstances may have an effect, but they are not the deciding factors in your life. Do not allow what is going on around you to determine what comes through you. Do not allow your self to believe that what happens to you can in any way alter the truth about you!

    With everyone else...I LOVE almond milk! I don't eat dairy (by choice) because of all of the natural hormones milk contains (about 80% of milk is from pregnant cows=consuming their natural hormones). Out of all of the alternatives, soy, rice, and almond, I find almond by far the best one. I don't think its bad as far as the calories goes either.

    There is a sugar free version, though I don't know if you can buy it everywhere. I think these are all the different types: http://www.bluediamond.com/shop/natu...ndBreeze32.cfm

    If you can't buy it...I'll let you in on a secret.... it's easy to make yourself! Just put almonds in a blender with water, makes a nice smooth drink, and if you have any little almond bits/chunks, just strain them out (and still eat, because they're still good for you!!)

    Estrogen

    Almond milk seems to be the only milk on the market that doesn't contain estrogen. I take it with coffee during comp prep.

    I love it and buy it regularly.

    If you want to use it for protein shakes, i suggest adding about 5 - 10% of water. I use muscle milk powder and it clumps up because almond milk is just a little too dense for it. Adding the bit of water helps a lot.
