Blue Diamond Almond Breeze Review & Giveaway

1 Shares

I have been hearing about almond milk for some time now.  Is it just me, or does it seem to be the latest rage?  I have read on several occasions how different celebrities just loves the stuff.   Clearly, it was time for me to try this concoction.

I love almonds.  I love various food items made with almonds.  Therefore it seemed only natural that I would like almond milk.  My imagined idea of almond milk was creamy and rich.  Something similar to the consistency of real milk, but with added almond flavor.  I easily opened one of the shelf-stable containers.  These Tetra Pak cartons are environmentally friendly and keep the ultra-pasteurized milk free of harmful bacteria.

I gingerly took a sip.  Um, this isn’t milk.  Or at least it doesn’t take anything like milk to me.  Rich and creamy, it is not.  Clearly, this is not what I imagine.  Honestly, it tasted like almond flavored water, which I guess is what almond milk truly is.  I can see how this would be a good alternative for people who can’t drink soy or real milk for various reasons, but I will not be drinking almond milk again anytime soon.

In an attempt to give the product its fair chance, I decided clearly plainly drinking almond milk was not for me or my family, but perhaps cooking with it would be.  I decided to make the Coconut Chicken Soup.  Using two cups of Almond Breeze Almondmilk Coconutmilk plus a variety of other ingredients including- red curry paste, fresh ginger, shitake mushrooms, and chili garlic sauce I was a bit more confident I would enjoy it.

The recipe was easy to make and tasted good.  We were not blown away by the taste, but it was good.  In hindsight I think it needed a little salt.  I inadvertently boiled the soup, which I was not supposed to do, but I don’t believe that would effect the flavor too much.

Based on my experience I would not drink almond milk, however I would be willing to cook with it again.   Has anyone tried it?  Did I miss some important aspect to the drink?  Does anyone love it?  Feel free to leave a comment below.
