Tried it yesterday w/my whole wheat oatmeal - it is delicious. 40 calories a cup with only 2 carbs and 0 sugar. Just FYI

I like almond milk, it's very tasty. If you get the opportunity also try coconut milk. I will not allow soy milk in my house. Not only is it nasty tasting in my opinon but too many nasty things in soy these days too.

I'd check the coconut milk for saturated fats. Coconuts are a saturated fat that can raise cholesterol levels. One thing also just to be aware of is the almond milk is usually lower in protein if you are trying to get in extra protein.

I've never tried almond milk before! I have had soy milk, which I am not a big fan of. Does it taste anything like soy milk?

I've never tried Soy milk. I have also started using Coconut milk/creamer in my coffee and I love it. It's dairy free and has fewer sugar and carbs that the fat free half and half I was buying. I think the almond milk I bought is a Silk product and it's unsweetened. I love trying new things so I just looked at the carb and sugar count and thought "why not?" Give it a try, you might like it.
