Almond Milk: Low Carb Food Find

Unsweetened Almond Milk!  It is low carb goodness!

Do you ever add something to your diet and wonder WHY you waited so long to try it?  I was an “almond milk virgin” until a few weeks ago.  Frankly, I never realized it was so low carb.  I happen to take a look at some in the store and thought; how come I never tried this!!!  I did and I loved it.

It will take your protein powder drink from meh…to YEAH! I like the taste of it.  It tastes like milk, but with a very slight hint of nuttiness. Added to chocolate protein powder it is really good.

Let me break down the nutrition of Skim Milk vs. Silk Unsweetened Almond Milk:

Skim Milk (1 cup)
Carbs: 12 g.
Calories: 90
Fat:  0
Cholesterol:  5mg.
Protein 8 g.

Almond Milk (1 cup)
Carbs: less than 1 gram
Calories:  30
Fat:  2.5 g. (the fat helps satiate you / 0g. saturated)
Cholesterol: 0g.
Protein 1g.

Besides being low carb, Almond Milk contains a lot of nutrients. 1 cup of almond milk has 50% of your daily recommended vitamin E and vitamin B12 and 45% of your daily recommended calcium.

  1. Know of any good low carb protein powders that contain lil to know milk product.???

    • I am not sure (and wouldn’t want to lead you in the wrong direction) since I assume you are asking me due to allergies. I am sure some exist. I would visit your locally independently owned health food store. They are usually very helpful! Good Luck!

  2. In this age of money controlling our food, SILK, is owned by DEAN FOODS, the largest milk conglomerate in the U.S. They own SILK in an effort to run all the small almond milk makers out of business. I love almond milk but would chosse another brand.

    LOVE YOUR SITE!

    • Christine says:

      I choose Silk because it is the only brand of almond milk in my area without Carageenan. Carageenan is banned in Europe and I avoid it.

  3. I’m newly diagnosed and I’m really enjoying your site. Thank you!
