My drink of choice, aside from wine and let’s be honest, it’s kinda frowned upon to order a wine with your breakfast at 7am, is coffee. I love coffee! I drink a lot of coffee!
I am a self confessed coffee addict.
The big problem with this, of course, is that I like my coffee with milk and when you’re drinking as much coffee as I am, 6 – 8 cups a day, the calorie intake from the milk starts to add up and is not ideal when I’m trying to lose or maintain my weight.
So I was quite keen to give Almond Breeze Barista Blend a try!
Almond Breeze Barista Blend is made with non-genetically modified almonds, dairy and soy free and contains all the health benefits of almonds. It also contains no added sugar and is suitable for vegans. It also froths beautifully so it’s ideal for cappuccinos, lattes and flat whites.
So what did we think?
It lived up to it’s promise of creating beautiful froth, wasn’t as sweet as full cream cows milk and it smells amazing. I tried it both with my coffee and gulped it straight from the box and I was surprised I liked the taste so much. I’m not really sure how to describe the taste. Obviously, it doesn’t taste like cows milk at all, but it has a pleasant flavour with an undertone of nuts and dare I say… chocolate? I felt like it complimented my coffee and I really enjoyed it.
We’ll definitely continue to use it in our house!
