Rude Health almond milk

I know what you're thinking. A whole post about almond milk? Really? But, it's that good. Honestly. I'm genuinely upset I haven't discovered it sooner.

I cut milk out of my diet a few years ago, after noticing that my morning coffee wasn't sitting so well in my tummy. I also noticed half a tub of Ben & Jerry's was making me feel nauseous. Go figure.

I haven't cut dairy completely out of my diet. I still eat cheese (oh, cheese), yogurt and yes, Ben and Jerry are still occasional visitors to my home. But for my morning coffee and porridge etc I opt for a dairy free alternative.

Until recently, I was all about that soy. Alpro original soy milk being my brand of choice. And it was ok. Tasted pretty pleasant, didn't split in coffee, pretty inoffensive on the whole. But I know it isn't the healthiest of options, so I was always on the lookout for a better alternative. 

It may just be me, but Alpro almond milk is rank. It really is. It curdles in coffee, has a funny aftertaste and I'm not entirely convinced that an almond has been anywhere near that carton. Sorry Alpro. The supermarket own-brand offerings didn't fare much better. 

Then I spotted the Rude Health almond milk in my local Tesco and remembered seeing a few bloggers talk about it. I gave it a go and haven't looked back since.

It tastes like almonds! Really, it does. It's creamy, tastes fresh and clean, it passes the anti-curdle coffee test. It's a winner.

It is slightly pricier than other brands but, when you compare the list of ingredients you'll understand why. No added sugar, thickeners or nasty preservatives. It's pretty much just crushed almonds, organic rice and spring water.

Even my husband (who is anti-alternative anything!) commented that this was "really nice". Praise indeed.
