I’m lactose intolerant but I need calcium. My solution? Almond milk. I prefer it over some of my other options but I also eat yogurt and cheese. I prefer plain old almond milk and I’m okay if it’s sweetened. I prefer it over the unsweetened almond milk and I’m not a big fan of chocolate almond milk given that I’m also not a big fan of chocolate.

I also happen to be a coconut lover. I will almost always try something that has coconut in it at least once just to see how it tastes. Thus, when Almond Breeze came out with an almond coconut drink, I was intrigued and eager to try it.  After all, it’s lactose free and it’s soy free so it seemed like a no-brainer, right?  Yeah….about that….

I don’t drink a lot of milk, not because I don’t want to but because my body tells me I can’t. Yep, I’m sort of kind of lactose intolerant. I wasn’t always lactose intolerant but oh well, I guess the body changes and that’s the end of that story.

My body still needs calcium so in the past little while, I’ve decided to try almond milk. Recently, I’ve done a number of almond milk reviews after I quickly realized that there are a ton of brands out there that make almond milk and they don’t all use the same ingredients. You’d think it was just almonds and water or something but it’s not quite that simple.

On a recent shopping trip, the Silk True Almond Unsweetened Almond milk was on sale at 2 containers for $4 which is an awesome deal. So, I picked up two and decided to do a taste test and review on it. Let’s hope the Silk True Almond Unsweetened Almond milk tastes decent enough or I’m in for 2 weeks of yuck.

A little while ago, ThingsThatWeDo.com did a product review on the Blue Diamond Almond Breeze almond milk drink. At that time, I decided I’d do a few more tests on other brands of almond milk. After all, how can you really tell if something is good unless you check out the competiton? Enter Natur-a Enriched Almond Beverage. I picked up the original flavour of the Natur-a Enriched Almond Beverage because I’m not a big fan of flavoured drinks in general. Let’s see how this Natur-a Enriched Almond Beverage measures up.

Before ThingsThatWeDo.com, I had never tried almond milk. I knew it existed but there was no reason to try it. I never intended to drink almond milk until one fine day when I happened to pass by a display of Blue Diamond Almond Breeze Original almond milk. I don’t know why, but it suddenly donned on me that I used to love eating Blue Diamond almonds.

Then I started to wonder what their almond milk drink would taste like. It was on sale for $2.19 so I decided to give it a try especially since it would boost up my daily intake of calcium! I don’t know about you but I sure could use some help in that calcium category. Now, the only question is: how does this Blue Diamond Almond Breeze Original almond milk taste?
