Overnight oatmeal is a healthy, hearty breakfast I make for fast-paced mornings.
Have you seen those commercials for almond milk lately? It’s a trend that is being blended into smoothies, poured on granola and battling soy as the non-dairy alternative in coffee. But what in the world is “Almond Milk” and what does it taste like? I also get to share my favorite Overnight Oatmeal Recipes for quick and delicious breakfasts.
What is Almond Milk?
No, there is no squeezing any juice out of an almond. Almond milk is, essentially, super finely ground toasted almonds blended with filtered water, vitamins, and minerals. This produces a milk-like product with a creamy, slightly nutty taste. Silk makes several varieties, even Dark Chocolate! I chose the Almond Milk Protein + Fiber (vanilla flavored) and the Coconut Almond Blend (unsweetened)
- 50% more calcium than dairy milk
- Excellent source of fiber and vitamin E
- Good source of protein
- Free of lactose, gluten, dairy, soy, egg, casein, and MSG
- No cholesterol or saturated fat
