I’ve wanted to cut out dairy from my diet for a while now.  Knowing this. my sister, who is a chef, is always recommending some food
item.  Recently, she suggested I try the
Blue Diamond Almond Breeze Almondmilk CoconutMilk Blend Original. During my
last visit to the grocery store, I picked up the Blue Diamond Almond Breeze
Almondmilk Coconutmilk Blend Original Unsweetened for $3.89.
What is the Blue
Diamond Almond Breeze Almondmilk Coconutmilk Blend Original?
Almond Breeze describes the Almondmilk Coconutmilk Blend
Original Unsweetened
as an all natural, dairy, soy, lactose, cholesterol and gluten free,
contains medium chain fatty acids (MCFA’s) and is available in four great
tasting flavors.
Being that I love coconut anything, I figured I’d try it
out, and when it comes to food I trust my sister’s opinion.  The worst that could happen was I didn’t like
it, and she’d have to keep it.  Luckily,
she was right.  I love the Blue Diamond
Almond Breeze Almondmilk CoconutMilk Blend Original Unsweetened
.

 Since purchasing the Blue Diamond Almond Breeze Almondmilk
Coconut Milk Blend Original Unsweetened
, I’ve added it to my smoothies, and morning cups of
tea.  The hint of coconut adds amazing,
tropical flavor to both my smoothies and tea. 
I love my tea with milk, and I didn’t think I’d be able to substitute
milk with anything else in my tea. I was wrong!

The Blue Diamond Almond Breeze Almondmilk Coconut Milk Blend Original Unsweetened is only 45 calories compared to the sweetened version, which I have yet to try that has 60 calories. Lactose and soy-free!

Sidenote: I know that Blue Diamond Almond Breeze Almondmilk Coconutmilk Blend Original contains carrageenan, which is believed to be a carcinogen. However, this stuff is in most everything we consume, especially creamy products like cheese, milk, sour cream etc. I haven’t had any gastro intestinal issues. Plus, I don’t drink loads of it.  Anything consumed in large quantities is harmful. Everything these days has something that’s deemed harmful in its ingredients. I guess we’d soon have to live off of air, but even that is contaminated.  I guess we’re just left to starve?  And of course, I can make my own almond milk. I don’t drink it daily, so it wouldn’t even make sense. I do hope that Blue Diamond works towards removing carrageenan from its products.

Blue Diamond Almond Breeze Almondmilk Coconutmilk Blend Original comes in both refrigerated and shelf-stable varieties.
