Low kJ Milk

Postby CronicBadger » Mon Dec 02, 2013 10:29 pm

Last week I discovered a new unsweetened almond milk on the supermarket shelves. Only 170kJ per 250ml serve. I'm going to try it for a little while in place of oat milk (just for a change). Unfortunately, I simply cannot have tea or coffee without some sort of whitener.

I've found that most alternatives to animal milk have a catch - either a high Glycemic Index (rice), or loaded with extra sugar (oat), or potential health problems (soy, and almond). This is probably as good as it gets.

I just don't bother with them...I just have it straight. I figure it is all good...in moderation. Just some for my daily cereal to keep the bones good.

The small amount in my coffee and tea isn't going to do me in. After all, you got to enjoy it or what's the point? It's a bit like toilet paper. You can save money buying the cheaper brand but sometimes your bottom demands some comfort! :shock: :lol:

Just a point to Chronic Badger - we have started using Blue Diamond Almond Breeze Almond Milk in our recipes. This one is low sugar 2.8g per 100g. We have started using it especially with baking as it boosts the protein content more than low fat milk in our recipes....we even used it with the Pesto Pasta we have on the site for more moisture and it worked well.
Now I wouldn't personally use it in tea and coffee as I don't have health issues but for baking and cooking it is a great alternative for a protein boost. I can not go down the soy route though....very acquired taste is required. Also a question over Soy Manufacturing as well.

Lol this is probably TMI so apologies if anyone is offended, but in my experience unsweetened almond is the same colour, consistency and very near taste to breast milk. My daughter far far prefers almond milk (I've only ever brought the sugar free one) to regular cows milk, and she's also crazy about breast milk :D. But because I always think about it I find it hard to have almond milk on my cereal :(

Also off topic but we use coffee mate (a powered whitener) in our coffee. It's a bit naughty but I don't think a spoonful a day will hurt us too badly.
