About 3 or 4 years back, I started reducing my (cow’s) milk intake as it made me queasy and nauseous. Ever since, I was constantly on the lookout for almond milk that’s delicious, healthy and nutritious. Initially, every brand I tried had high contents of sugar, preservatives and artificial flavourants, which made the milk unhealthy. For a short period, I just stopped having all forms for milk (until I discovered The Almond Creamery). At the beginning of last year, I visited one of my favourite cafe in the southern suburbs, Four and Twenty, decided to order the Almond Creamery’s milk (in the chocolate flavour), and I have not looked back. It’s THE best almond milk in South Africa!
The Almond Creamery (So much more than milk)
This creamy dairy-free option is perfect for those looking for a truly delicious milk alternative. Whether you’re vegan or avoiding dairy for health reasons, this range of nut milk is packed with high quality, nutritious ingredients in a blend that is delicious, fresh and creamy. Almond Creamery strives for consistent excellence, and makes the freshest nut milk available. They use 5 times more nuts to make their smooth nut milk, which is why each sip is rich, creamy and packed with Omega-3 fatty acid goodness. The Almond Creamery nut milk does not make me feel queasy, it’s locally made with sustainable products and can be used in so many ways (see easy recipe below).
Their 250ml range consists of a nut milk blend of macadamia and almond nuts, with 3 delicious flavours including Chai Spice, Coffee, and Chocolate available in environmentally-friendly glass bottles. Their 1 litre range is available in pure unsweetened Classic & Chocolate nut milk, Original Almond, and a Barista-style blend that includes coconut made especially for espresso-style coffees that froths beautifully. All the nut milk varieties can be used in cereal or porridge, and is also perfect for use in cooking and baking. All the ingredients used in the nut milk is naturally flavoured and sweetened.
