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
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!
