My favorite way to drink almond milk – breakfast soup.

DSCN0502

This was about 1/2 a cup of Grape Nuts, 1 cup Califia Farms Almond Milk, and 1 small Granny Smith, ding donged for 4 minutes in a giant bowl (it will overflow in the microwave).

So. So. Good.

I added a few drops of Vanilla Stevia, since the milk/cereal wasn’t sweet.

I use almond milk in rooibos (hot or iced), in smoothies, in oats, on cereal, and straight up!

2 Alvina January 16, 2013 at 12:53 pm

yum! always an essential in my green smoothies

3 Sand January 16, 2013 at 1:10 pm

I add it to my oatmeal.

4 lauren January 16, 2013 at 1:10 pm

My husband and I drink it straight up.

5 Yvonne S January 16, 2013 at 1:14 pm

Ahh now you have me craving Grape Nuts and almond milk. Haven’t had Grape Nuts in ages! Thank you for this giveaway (and breakfast inspiration!).

I need to try to copy your really yummy breakfast soup one of these days! My favorite way to enjoy almond milk is in a cup of hot tea or in a smoothie. Almond milk is the only dairy alternative that agrees with me!

7 Cristin January 16, 2013 at 1:18 pm

I love almond milk-perfect for cereal and smoothies. Haven’t seen this kind yet-hope to try it soon!

8 Deborah January 16, 2013 at 1:31 pm

Your breakfast soup sounds brilliant for these cold mornings when plain ol’ oatmeal just doesn’t cut it.

9 Deborah January 16, 2013 at 1:32 pm

I usually use almond milk for my green smoothies or in my oatmeal.

10 Brigid January 16, 2013 at 1:36 pm

I drink my almond milk in smoothies, but I also love it in baked goods and my creamy polenta recipe.

11 Shell Lewis January 16, 2013 at 2:19 pm

Ashamed to say I have never had almond milk however I just recently went gluten free. I held onto “skim” milk but it certainly didnt make me feel any better. Can’t wait to try this.

12 Julie (A Case of the Runs) January 16, 2013 at 2:38 pm

I like mine in oatmeal…

13 Shell Lewis January 16, 2013 at 2:40 pm

Also first Time trying plan to use it for smoothies and other rec. can someone tell me what’s the difference between unsweetened and creamy?

14 Deb January 16, 2013 at 3:06 pm

I drink it in everything! Tea, coffee, hot chocolate–I seriously go through a carton every few days.

15 Madeline January 16, 2013 at 3:42 pm

I heat mine up and steep it with Earl Grey tea :)

16 Elaine Chu January 17, 2013 at 12:31 am

I use almond milk in my cereal and chai tea.

17 erin @WELLinLA January 16, 2013 at 4:33 pm

I recently learned to make my own almond milk because I’ve grown tired of what’s on the shelves… but this looks and promises to be way yummier than what’s in the cardboard boxes! I’m allergic to dairy so I use nut and almond milks for everything or for just a sweet treat at the end of a long day!

18 Chelsea January 16, 2013 at 5:00 pm

Avocado, cocoa powder, frozen banana, spinach, nut butter and almond milk + blender = smoothie! Yummo! :) I have always been a Grape Nuts girl too.

19 Ava January 16, 2013 at 5:41 pm

I use almond milk when I’m making vegan pancakes! I also just love it with my Kashi Go Lean cereal. There is something so much tastier about it than plain cow’s milk!

20 Lina January 16, 2013 at 7:26 pm

I love to make smoothies with a banana, cocoa powder and chia sees> very yummy and so healthy!

21 Amy S January 16, 2013 at 7:40 pm

I’ve never had almond milk but I would love to try some!

22 Bachtuyet Le January 16, 2013 at 7:58 pm

I like to eat my almond milk with frosted flakes! So unhealthy, but it’s just to delicious. :)

23 Jane January 16, 2013 at 8:07 pm

I actually make hot cocoa with my almond milk! I’ve been vegan for 3 years and I’ve made hot chocolate with soy, rice, almond, 7-grain and even hemp milk! However, of all those alternatives, almond milk comes closest to mimicking the actual taste and texture of the luscious full-fat milk chocolate hot cocoa I used to love. I normally use the Whole Foods brand almond milk, or Silk’s dark chocolate almond milk to make my hot chocolate. It’s heavenly with a bit of agave mixed in! I would love to try Califia Farms almond milk!

24 Heidi L January 16, 2013 at 8:28 pm

Love it in my oatmeal and I love the design on the canvas tote!

25 Robyn @ Blueberries and Oats January 16, 2013 at 8:29 pm

I actually rarely go for almond milk but when I do I love it in smoothies.

26 Nancy January 16, 2013 at 11:58 pm

I drink it with ginger powder, honey, and cinnamon…kind of weird, but a delicious way to warm up on winter nights!

27 kayla January 17, 2013 at 2:36 am

i drink my almond milk steamed, as a post-dinner dessert with a piece of super dark chocolate. yum!

28 Floey January 17, 2013 at 3:10 am

I Love almond milk in cereal!

29 Anne January 17, 2013 at 7:47 am

Love almond milk or coconut-almond milk (this is my fave one!) steamed and frothed alongside my morning coffee. Also a favorite dessert is simply frozen organic blueberries + almond milk (add maple if desired).

30 Sara January 17, 2013 at 8:18 am

I like it by itself, with cereal, in smoothies, to use in baking…the list goes on!

31 Robyn January 17, 2013 at 8:47 am

i use it in my morning smoothies. and in oatmeal.

32 Emily January 17, 2013 at 9:30 am

I always use unsweetened vanilla almond milk in my oatmeal/cereal and use the unsweetened original for cooking/baking!

33 Shell Lewis January 17, 2013 at 9:44 am

Thanks will try the unsweetened

34 theresa @ aspoonfulofsunshine January 17, 2013 at 9:46 am

Ah I love Califa Farms Almond Milk! I stumbled upon the lovely looking bottle in Gelsons a few months ago and I have to say, this is some of the best Almond Milk I have ever tasted! I use it in my morning coffee, oatmeal, smoothies, and cereal.

35 purplelarkspur January 17, 2013 at 10:24 am

I like almond milk in a smoothie

36 Jessica January 17, 2013 at 2:56 pm

I use almond milk in coffee, smoothies, with cereal, for fun, in desserts…

37 Lle Schreiber January 17, 2013 at 6:22 pm

I like it with cereal, but your breakfast soup looks great too!

38 Jenn Wong January 17, 2013 at 6:57 pm

I have been switching to almond from soy – always up to try new ones!

39 Holly January 17, 2013 at 7:20 pm

WHOO MILK THAT DOES NOT PASS GAS (TMI I KNOW)
I love putting almond milk with weetabix, it makes it all creamy and lush! x]

40 Jovana Hernandez January 17, 2013 at 7:54 pm

I'm lactose intolerant and I don't really like skim milk that much.. And I've been dying to try almond milk. I've been hearing about many recipes lately and I can't wait to try them all :)

41 Christine January 17, 2013 at 10:42 pm

I’m new to the almond milk scene, but I love it!

42 Emily January 18, 2013 at 8:55 am

I drink my almond milk plain, or add it to my pancake recipe!

43 JB Christy January 18, 2013 at 5:44 pm

Almond milk is my favorite vegan milk. Never heard of Califia, but I'd love to give it a try. Thanks for running the giveaway!

44 kolpin January 18, 2013 at 10:47 am

i love it in my lattes!

45 Stephanie C January 18, 2013 at 3:24 pm

We don’t drink milk in our house – it’s almond milk or coconut milk, so this would be awesome :)

46 Abo Brandon January 18, 2013 at 5:12 pm

MMMMMMM… I want to try!

47 Glen January 19, 2013 at 3:02 pm

I love almond milk and how creamy it is!

48 Carrie Tee January 19, 2013 at 10:44 pm

I like to make coffee lattes every morning with my almond milk:)

49 Glen McClain January 19, 2013 at 10:57 pm

I love almond milk! It is so thick and creamier than regular and it does not hurt that it is falvored vanilla!

50 Jean January 20, 2013 at 6:33 pm

Love almond milk in my cereal. So good!

51 Kelly G. January 21, 2013 at 7:58 am

I love almond milk ice dream!

52 alain January 21, 2013 at 10:28 pm

almond milk is one of my favorites for making saag paneer! I add about a cup to my sautee of onions, garlic, ginger and frozen spinaches with spices and it’s delish!

53 Blessie Nelson January 23, 2013 at 3:26 am

I drink it all the time, esp in my tea!

54 vegan miam February 15, 2013 at 3:50 pm

My favourite one is the Creamy Almondmilk! Love their varieties!
