I've recently come across some rave reviews for Blue Diamond Almond Breeze Unsweetened Almond Beverage - Chocolate Flavour (and it turns out the low carb grocery carries it.) Here's the review from iateapie.net -- I like this site (some good ideas for maintenance food choices,) but fair warning: it makes me hungry.
Apparently the "milk" is delicious once you add a little sweetener... tastes just like chocolate milk, or hot chocolate if you heat it. It can also be added it into other drinks or recipes for that chocolate hit. It's gluten, cholesterol and lactose free, plus it's listed as an excellent source of calcium, vitamins D & E, and a good source of vitamin A.
A side by side serving size comparison with the Danone Fit n'Lite (garnish) shows that Almond Breeze has the almost the same or less of everything except sodium and potassium. Wonder if I can get this approved as a garnish?
Has anyone tried this product... pre-Dr.B maybe? Did you like it or no?
Danone 1 serving 113g Almond Breeze Chocolate Beverage 240 ml

The vanilla flavour has even better numbers: only 40 cal, 3 g fat and 2 carbs.
