Last weekend I went to Whole Foods only to find the unsweetened almond breeze shelf empty once again. Frustrated, I began to look for alternatives, when all of a sudden I saw that Pacific had come out with an organic unsweetened almond drink (with no added sugar or soy). At 35 calories per one cup serving (still 1 weight watchers point), I was sold no matter what it tasted like, so I bought all of it (sorry to all my readers who shop at my local Whole Foods!).
The 35 calorie milk I bought from Pacific isn't as strongly vanilla flavored as the almond breeze I am used to drinking, and therefore not quite as tasty. But I see online that Pacific has a vanilla unsweetened flavor as well (at 40 calories), so I'm going to start looking for that at all my local supermarkets. For now, I have a lot of the non-vanilla kind, so I'm adding a bit of vanilla extract and nutmeg (and sometimes cinnamon) to sweeten it up and make it more flavorful. It is pretty good and I'm happy to have my staple back! Now I can eat my low calorie cereal again, and I can make even lower calorie banana smoothies.
