Ode to Almond Milk

I have never really liked milk.  I was never one of those kids who had glasses of milk with a meal or for snack.  The only kind of dairy milk that I actually like is chocolate, enter this guy:

I am obsessed with almond milk.  This non-dairy milk has only 35 calories per cup and is not as sweet as regular cows milk.  I never even realized that cows milk was sweet until I'd been off it for a while, I ran out of almond milk one day and none of the stores in Saranac Lake sell it so I bought a half gallon of skim milk, it was so sweet I thought something was wrong.  Almond milk is also a great source of calcium and I think it tastes better in coffee than regular milk.  I actually cut the fake coffee creamer out of my diet with almond milk.

Give it a try!
