Blue Diamond Almond Breeze Review

Almond Breeze Unsweetened Chocolate and Vanilla are lactose and soy free milk substitutes that contain just 40 and 30 calories per cup respectively. These drinks are low on the glycemic index, making them an excellent choice for people who want to avoid sugar in their diet.

I found both flavors to have a pleasant enough, yet mild underlying natural almond flavor to compliment the chocolate and vanilla which are mild in their own right, without being overly sweet as many of these drinks can be. To be honest, if you are one who cares about having a creamier and sweeter drink, you will likely be disappointed in these products. However, these were the qualities I enjoyed about them both.  In my humble opinion, I think these almond milks make a more refreshing drink than actual milk products as they are relatively creamy in consistency, but they do not have the thickness of cow’s milk.


As you can see from the nutrition data on both flavors of the Almond Breeze, these are healthy beverages that are entirely diabetic friendly. There is nothing objectionable I can see with either of these drinks and find that as a low calorie choice, these are most excellent for those who are trying to reduce their body fat. My only gripe is that I wish they were higher in protein per serving, but that is okay since I get my daily protein needs filled from a variety of sources anyhow.


You should be able to find these products on your grocers shelves at about $2.00 per 32-ounce shelf-stable quart and $4.00 per 64-ounce refrigerated half gallon. Mothers, this is not a bad price to spend on a healthy choice for your children. You could easily spend a significant amount more on sugary drink boxes. Another great aspect to these products is that Almond Breeze Almond Milk is widely available in natural food stores and large grocery chains in the U.S., Canada, Australia, Europe, and Asia!

      Thanks brother!

  2. I’ve been buying the 30 calorie vanilla Almond Breeze for years. I like it too but my only complaint, like you, is it doesn’t have enough protein. Nonetheless, I’ll continue to buy it.

      Hi Frieda,
      Normally I like chocolate much better than vanilla. But wit Almond Breeze, I thought the vanilla flavor was a much better choice. Now,how can we get them to increase the protein content for the perfect drink?
