Good afternoon my coffee addicts! I hope you are having a positive day. I wanted to share a review on a new item I found recently. Califia "better half" almond/coconut milk. It's dairy, soy, gluten, and carageneen free. The unsweetened version has no added sugar. I thought it tasted really good for an almond milk version. I have struggled for months on whole30 without any avail at a good tasty almond milk. This one has coconut so I feel it balances the almond flavor. And sweetens it a bit. Let's face it almond milk is pretty dead. Unless you are drinking one with sugar. This is a nice alternative. It is $2.50 at your local whole foods. I think it's not bad. Real milk had become so damn expensive. And it's unhealthy so I don't get it. This will go quick. That's the only con. I believe they sell a big bottle but I wasn't sure if I would like. Hence why I bought the small version. I wish they sold it all over. Its not easily found. My other con. (Lile with most whole30 items). I would love to try the other versions they offer even if they have a smidgen of sugar. I am 98% whole30 5 months later. I will not go back to dairy or any bread. But for me a drop of sugar in a drop of almond milk is not bad. I've changed my whole lifestyle. I give the califia better half 4 coffee cups out of 5.
Have any of you tried almond milk? What are your favorite brands?
