Blue Diamond Almond Milk vs. Cow's Milk : Product Comparison

On the left, Dairy Cow's Whole Milk..........On the right, Blue Diamond "Almond Breeze" Almond Milk.
 As you can see from the carton nutrition information, Blue Diamond "Almond Breeze" Almond Milk has only 60 calories per seving, compared to 150 of cow's milk.  Less Total fat.  No Saturated fat.  No Trans fat. No Cholesterol.  Less Carbs.  Less Sugar. Less Protein.(Animal protein has been shown to leech calcium from our bones.)

Almond Breeze also has more vitamins and minerals than whole milk from a cow.

As a vegan, I enjoy Almond Breeze with my cereal, in my smoothies, and with my recipes.  It also comes in several flavors.  You can check them out @ http://www.bluediamond.com/index.cfm?navid=33

Next time you are in the Supermarket, try some Almond Breeze.  In my estimation, it is the BEST milk available!  I know you'll like it!


  1. I made the switch for health reasons. Being diagnosed with Breast Cancer last December my doctor gave me a diet to go by and it was not to have DAIRY products. On the list was Almond milk, who thought an Italian drink when we used to go make visits in Italy would be my source of milk in coffe, cereal, baking etc. Also the best part of drinking Almond Milk is NO Cholesterol & no Saturated Fat. Everyone should make the switch. Even Rice Milk. People should wake up and start reading labels.

  2. You should have compared it to cream, it would have made your position more clear.
    This would be far less reinforcing for your argument: http://nutritiondata.self.com/facts/dairy-and-egg-products/78/2

    protein quality is the primary benefit of cow milk vs nut milk.

    I challenge you to source your calcium leeching statement, and pay attention to the details of the materials and methods in contrast to a more mundane administration of protein suspended in milk.

    I do agree your vegan lifestyle is good for the world, but I think that the biggest hurdle to a global shift towards veganism, and other methods of saving the world is a global lack of critical thought (who is saying what, why, and where are they getting their information).

  3. Thanks for the comment. I understand your point and it is a good one, however I only compared the two because it is what I would have had to drink before I was vegan. I would not drink straight cream. Definately I understand what you mean though! Thanks!
