When it comes to dairy alternatives, almond milk is all the rage right now… and for good reason.

Not only is it one of the most popular and best-tasting options, it contains essential vitamins and minerals and like other plant based milks, uses less water and has a relatively smaller global warming potential compared to dairy milk.

If you need to avoid lactose or have a soy allergy, almond milk’s got you covered. It also contains no animal products, making it suitable for vegans.

We recommend So Good Almond Unsweetened, it’s deliciously creamy and contains vitamins E, B2 and B12 and calcium. So good whether you drink a big glass, pair with cereal, or use in cooking and baking.

Here are a few ways to enjoy almond milk in your cooking…
