Creamy Almond Breeze ~ Almond Milk

Dairy-Free Stream of Consciousness ~ A Poem

Going diary-free has left a big gaping hole in my tummy's well of satisfaction,
All my life I have lived for endless creamy action.

Far too long have I led a life of cream-less austerity,
For years I've been begging, please someone end this parody.

Cow's milk products give me terrible bouts of eczema which I cannot bear,
There must be a solution—somehow, somewhere.

Rice milk lacks the richness I so deeply crave,
Soy milk upsets my stomach, hence, to the loo I become a slave.

In my dreams a milk substitute did appear,
Almond Milk by Blue Diamond, alas, I no longer have to fear.


A Few Thoughts about Almond Breeze by Blue Diamond ~ Not a Poem

Almond milk is my go-to creamy alternative to cow's milk for most things in my dairy-free life. I add it to soups, use it in all of my bread and cookie recipes and cannot do without it for my morning chai lattes.

Finally, after months upon months of requesting it, most of the coffee shops around these parts have started offering it on their menu along with the soy and rice alternatives.

I have tried many different brands of almond milk and love Almond Breeze the most. Some of the other brands will do a strange separation thing when heated, turning what was intended to be a moment of creamy bliss into an unexpected coagulated funk.

Almond Breeze has withstood the test of boiling, baking and frothing and I will stand by my Almond Breeze to the end.


  1. LOVE this, and love Almond milk!
    I totally agree about Almond breeze. I tried Almond "silk" from the makers of Silk soy milk and it was way too thick to use for anything but a smoothie
    Many people don't know the dangers and health concerns of cows milk.
    I hope you don't mind me posting a link to my blog post on this subject:
    Thanks for another great post!

  2. Thanks Sister! Glad you're feeling the almond milk love, too. I'm happy for you to link. I just stopped by your post "cows milk is for baby cows" and I couldn't agree more with your sentiments. Cheers!
