hmmm I will have to try that. Never have on 1% milk right now. How is it in coffee? Is it like the creamers? Let me know robertoj!

I have been using Almond Breeze for over two years. I first heard of it on a diabetes site and tried it the next day. I have been using it ever since. I really like it a lot. I use the plain 40 cal or 60 cal if that is all they have. They also have vanilla. In CA you can find it almost any super market. Trader Joe's has their own brand and Silk has almond milk. I buy whichever is on sale.

Amazingly here in LV the TJ's almond milk is fewer carbs than the Almond Breeze and is less expensive when last I checked.

Over here it costs about the same but the Almond Breeze is on sale a lot. Sometimes the price goes up and then comes back down again.

I have seen Almond Milk in the dairy case and have been going to try it-but, I wanted to hear from people who have tried it first.

Hello, new here. I have seen it and wondered if it is going to put my sugar up. At the moment I am using soy milk. I find it palatable if very cold . Almond milk sounds like it would be sweeter.

I was drinking it for a while, but now I make my own and it is much better for me because I don't sweeten it anymore. I just add the vanilla and I get some of the pulp so it is a little less smooth, but it works great in my smoothies. I have not noticed a drop in my levels, but it doesn't spike them either.

I LOVE almond milk!!! How do you make your own? Do you find that in the end it is cheaper than buying almond milk in the store?

GabbyPA 2011-09-14 17:39:26 -0500 Report

It is probably a draw on cost, but the control I get with what is in it is far better. Here is the recipe I use now:
Soak 1/2-3/4 cups of raw almonds for about 6-8 hours
Drain the water, rinse your almonds
Place almonds in a blender and add 3-4 cups of fresh water
Run on high for 2-5 minutes
Strain out the pulp with a fine strainer or panty hose
Add 1-2 teaspoons of natural vanilla
Store in the fridge for 3-5 days.

You can add a little sweet to it if you like. I used to, but now I am drinking it without sweetener. I used to use 1-2 T of Agave Nectar.
I use the strainer, but if you use panty hose, you will get more milk, less pulp.
Have fun

Where is the best place to buy raw almonds? Grocery store, Health Food store, online? Thanks, I'd like to try this.

Yes, I drink it from time to time. I am lactose intolerant. I haven't noticed a big change in my BG readings.

I have not tried it, but my sister in law used it all the time. She wasn't a diabetic, but had breast cancer, was lactose intolerant and was not suppose to have soy products with breast cancer.
