"Almond Milk | www.stephsneckofthewoods.com"

Almond Milk is an excellent substitute for use in baking, with morning coffee, or as a general dairy alternative, in a low carb/keto lifestyle.  Do you use it?  It is a fabulous choice!

Many commercial brands are less than ideal though.  One popular brand on the market contains the following ingredients:

ALMONDMILK (FILTERED WATER, ALMONDS), CONTAINS LESS THAN 2% OF: VITAMIN & MINERAL BLEND (CALCIUM CARBONATE, VITAMIN E ACETATE, VITAMIN A PALMITATE, VITAMIN D2), SEA SALT, NATURAL FLAVOR, LOCUST BEAN GUM, GELLAN GUM, ASCORBIC ACID (TO PROTECT FRESHNESS).

CONTAINS ALMOND.
