That's okay. There is no need for almonds. it is just that it is enriched so that it is nutritionally comparable to real milk except with less calories and fat. The only problem is that it has less protein (which you would need to get by eating something else).

The main reason I buy it is because it is a good milk substitute but with no lactose. Less farting.

Likewise, I don't really care for the content of the almonds. I just need a milk substitute since actual milk flares up my eczema.

Exactly, I rather spend that money to buy real almonds, and if you are making a smoothie, just thrown a few almonds in the mixer. Much better than buying over priced white colored water.

Why not buy lactose free milk? Is it the price difference?

agreed, I tried almond milk once and it tastes like watered down milk. The vanilla sweetened soy milk is hands down the best version, with one cup having 350mg of potassium vs 35mg for the almond milk. Though of course different strokes for different folks and id still take almond milk over cow milk any day of the week which tastes gross af btw.

EDIT Aug.13: there's a new $1 off coupon usable on any Silk product

do you have to print these coupons out or is there digital versions? How many coupons can you use? I'm guessing food basics will only accept one per order?

Creamy Cashew is a good milk replacement. It's not watered down like the other flavours.

Is Silk Almond - Dark Chocolate - ok for an occasional treat, or is it just basically sugar?

I was comparing products and was wondering if the Silk Almond Dark Chocolate was considered a healthy alternative.

Silk Almond Unsweetened Original - 0 grams of sugar
Silk Almond Unsweetened Vanilla - 0 grams of sugar
Silk Almond Dark Chocolate - 18 grams of sugar

Natrel Lactose Free Milk - 8 grams of sugar

Medium apple sugar content = ~20g. So by the way of your thinking, this drink is healthier than an apple.
