The ingredient: almond milk
For people with a lactose allergy, almond milk is like a gift from the heavens. But even people who can drink milk are choosing it lately. Why? It’s lower in calories than most traditional dairy products—despite the fact that even unsweetened almond milk can taste sweeter than cow’s milk. Another big plus: it doesn’t have to be refrigerated, so you can stock up before a road trip or camping trip and not worry.
