There are a lot of reasons why people do not drink dairy – allergies, dietary restrictions, or they just plain do not like it. As someone who is trying to get away from eating dairy completely, almond milk has been a lifesaver. I will drink soy milk when I am out and about (it is usually the only non-dairy option), but due to conflicting reports about soy’s affect on hormones, I only drink it if it is the ONLY plant-based option available. Almond milk is all I drink at home and is my favorite thing to add to my daily coffee(s).
Starbucks began offering almond milk in the U.S. back in September and I was able to try it out when I went home for Christmas. I much preferred it to both the soy and coconut milks already offered at the chains. Starbucks has said that it is using an almond milk made specially to compliment their drinks and I found it to be quite good. I have been patiently awaiting the day it would come to the U.K.! How excited was I to finally see this tweet from the official Starbucks UK account last week!
