Almond milk

Almond milk is a great alternative to regular cow's milk.  It tastes great in drinks like my Chocolate Banana Peanut Butter Smoothie.

And it's lower in calories. Here's a comparison for 1 cup:

Whole milk            150
2%                         130
1%                         110
skim                        80
plain soymilk         100
plain almond milk    40

If you want the lowest calories, be sure to get plain unsweetened. I can find Blue Diamond, SO Delicious and Almond Dream brands in my local stores.

Last week I found a new higher protein version by So Delicious (in the picture above). It has 5 grams of protein vs. 1 gram in the regular version - and no extra calories!
