Is it okay to have an occasional glass of unsweetened, unflavored nut milk? I drink it to make sure I am getting enough calcium, and I also like the taste. Any downsides I haven’t considered?
Yup, just don’t overdo it. Although it’s not the same as fisting nuts, it IS water soaked in them so keep that in mind.
Yes, just make sure you are using the unsweetened ones.
I love Kirkland Signature unsweetened vanilla almond milk from Costco.
Just one every other day or so. What did you mean by “water soaked in them?”
I use the unsweetened and unflavored.
You should be fine. The one I use has 1g card per serving and 1g fiber, so depending if you’re counting total carbs it’s 1 or net carbs is 0.
So one won’t hurt anything.
By “soaked in water” I believe what they mean is that all nut milks are simply nuts soaked in water, then blended smooth.
There is no such thing as a nut “milk”. Nut’s don’t produce milk. Nut “Milks” are nuts pulverized and soaked in water for a period of time and then strained. End result is the “milk”. Nut flavored water is what it actually is, some add a couple things to give is a slight thickness.
I know this. Let me rephrase: Is there a downside to drinking a nut-flavored water calcium delivery system.
I use unsweetened almond vanilla. I use it in my coffee. Since having no sugar for 7 weeks now it’s very sweet to me. I also add some hwc. I also might have a small 6 ounce glass on occasion with dinner. Love it, might actually like it more than normal milk.
IIFYM , why not? I just discovered “Milkadamia” - macadamia nut milk (unsweetened, of course) - and I mix it with heavy cream and cocoa powder, plus a bit of stevia, as a “chocolate milk” drink. I tried this mainly for my hubby, since he’s new to keto and I’m trying to find him a few treats that are like the things he used to enjoy a lot (chocolate milk among them). Good or excellent source of Vitamin A & D, Calcium and Potassium; in 8 ounces there are 6g fat, only .5 g protein and .5 g net carb, so this drink will be a great way to add fat, as well.
Where do you find macadamia nut milk?
I believe it’s popping up everywhere you can find almond, soy, and other “non-milk milks” - but not always in the refrigerator. It is shelf-stable without refrigeration before you open it. I found it in the refrigerator at WalMart, but in my local grocery it is in a beverage aisle.
Thanks so much. I will look for it!
I’m going to be on the lookout for this, macadamia nuts have been my new fav.
I bought Almond milk then recently news stated a recall due to real milk being in it, uhhh so mine is still sitting unopened.
Wow, never heard that. I have snuck Soymilk.
Its one brand Almond Breeze.
As long as it is unsweetened it is okay.
I love Milkadamia! I replaced unsweetened coconut with Milkadamia. It tastes way better.
