Can we talk about something serious for a second that I’ve never actually talked about on the blog? Until about the age of 16, I was SEVERELY lactose intolerant. I didn’t think growing out of an allergy was a thing, but the day I hit puberty was the day my body started accepting dairy products. Long story short, for the majority of my childhood I got very ill off of milk, ice cream, etc. It went STRAIGHT through me. I remember eating ice cream and thinking “I will pay for this in about 20 minutes.”

Way back then, non-dairy milks weren’t very popular so I literally ate dry cereal and learned to like it. I think age 20 was the time I discovered almond milk and it was instant love because even though my body could handle dairy at that point, I preferred non dairy milk of dairy. Silk (today’s sponsor!) was the first brand of almond milk I ever tried, actually. I’ve always been an unsweetened kind of girl, whether plain or vanilla. I like to keep things simple so that I can jazz them up myself. In case you’re unfamiliar with Silk Unsweetened Almondmilk’s nutrition label…here’s what you get per serving:

  • 30 calories per serving
  • Absolutely no added sugar
  • 50% more calcium than dairy milk
  • Excellent source of vitamin E
  • Absolutely no cholesterol or saturated fat
  • Free of dairy, soy, lactose, gluten, casein, egg and MSG
  • Verified by the Non-GMO Project’s product verification program
  • No artificial colors, flavors or funny business

Today, I’m sharing 5 different ways to flavor almond milk at home! After testing and shooting this post, I felt like a kid at the state fair who had just drank about 10 glasses of milk…minus the sick tummy because these almond milks have no dairy and no unrefined sugar in them. Bingo, bango, bongo.
