I’m not a constant milk drinker but my son loves milk every day. Cow’s milk is essentially really good for you because of the natural vitamins and minerals and kids really enjoy the taste, especially if they are flavored with strawberry, chocolate, or vanilla. But once in awhile it’s good to venture outside of the normal milk your kids may be used to. One great source of protein is from almond milk and besides the nut protein, almond milk also provides essential fatty acids, vitamins, and minerals that’s so important for a growing body. And if you’ve ever tried almond milk, then you’ll know how smooth and delicious it can be. Almond milk tastes incredibly like eating almonds but it’s much easier to digest in liquid form.
Who doesn’t love a refreshing glass of ice-cold milk? It’s delicious, healthy, and fun to drink. But not all of us can tolerate regular cow’s milk on a regular basis or even at all. And not all of us enjoy the taste of regular milk either. So what other options do you have? There are an assortment of non-dairy milk beverages out on the market today including almond milk, soymilk, rice milk, and hemp milk. I came to enjoy almond milk a long time ago because I love the taste of almonds and nut protein is really important for vegetarians as well as for those on strict eating habits. Children might even enjoy almond milk too because of it’s natural sweetness and it’s smooth texture. My son wasn’t crazy about almond milk at first, but then he grew to like it only because he’s used to the taste of almonds since he was very young. I like to put almond milk in smoothies instead of regular milk or soymilk sometimes just to give it an extra boost of vitamins and minerals, and the taste is absolutely fantastic! You really can’t go wrong with almond milk because most people are not allergic to almonds since they are essentially an underdeveloped fruit that resembles apricots and not actually nuts. And almonds have so many culinary uses that many recipes call for almonds as a base ingredient. Almonds really are versatile, fun, and delicious and addicting once you’re hooked on them.
So what’s a good way of enjoying almonds? Well, the famous makers of premium nut products at Blue Diamond Almonds have found a way to offer almonds in a refreshing, delectable, and elegant way in the form of a beverage. Almond beverages are all the rage right now because of it’s enhancing benefits and the fact that they are so delicious and versatile. At Blue Diamond Almonds, they are experts at almonds and almond beverages and their almond beverages are hard to compare with any other brands. Blue Diamond Almonds almond beverages has a clean, smooth, and naturally sweet flavor and taste and they are great any time of the day and for any age. Although almond milk is best served chilled, I do like to warm it up and stir in a bit of honey for some extra flavor and health boost. You can also use almond milk in making smoothies, in baking recipes, in cereals and oatmeal, and even in ice-cream. For those who’ve had almond milk before, you’ll know what I mean by their unique taste and flavor. And for those who have yet to try them, then try Blue Diamond Almonds almond milk first and you’ll be likely to have more.
Why do we enjoy almond milk from Blue Diamond Almonds? Because their almonds are grown in California, their almonds are not genetifically modified or engineered, they adhere to the stict guidelines of GAP, and they are part of a cooperative of California almond growers who have been in the almond growing business for many years. In fact, Blue Diamond Almonds are currently celebrating their 100th year in the almond growing business. Quite a feat for a small company who originally started out wanting to fulfill America’s need and desire for almond consumption. At Blue Diamond Almonds, they make everything possible with almonds, including their trademark almonds in a can, their Almond Breeze Almond Milk, Nut Chips, and Nut Thins.
