Another Fabulous Food Finds Friday is here! And today, I want to share my absolute FAVORITE milk substitute, the Almond Breeze Unsweetened Vanilla. Let me preface this by letting you all know that I do NOT like soy milk. I’m very particular about low calorie substitutions tasting as close to the real thing as possible. So to find one that I actually like is nothing short of a miracle. And after many, many attempts with different types of soy milk, I have finally found one that I LOVE! It has just 40 calories and 3 grams of fat, and 1 gram of fiber for 8 fl oz – which is AWESOME nutritional stats, considering that even fat free skim milk (which tastes horrible), has about 90 calories per serving.

1 Weight Watchers Point Non-Dairy Milk Drink
This fabulous low calorie soy milk is nothing other than the ultra fabulous Almond Breeze Unsweetened Vanilla! It’s a non-dairy beverage made from real almonds, all natural, smooth and creamy with a hint of almonds. It has a great taste without the thin, chalky after taste of rice and soy milk. Almond Breeze even won the 2004 Best Taste Award from the prestigious American Culinary Institute (ACI). The Vanilla flavoring gives it a nicer taste than the original, but it’s still unsweetened, so you are saving a lot of calories. Now, I’m not saying that I’d pour a big glass of this and drink it as milk, but it makes an excellent substitute for fat free milk in cereal, smoothies, and any Weight Watchers recipes that call for milk. You can actually have 2 servings of this and STILL have it just be 1 Weight Watcher Point!! Gotta love it. This product is a MUST try!
NOTE: just make sure to get the Unsweetened Vanilla kind, as the other flavors have more calories.
