- evaporated cane sugar

- annatto extract
- sea salt
- vitamin E
- Vitamin A Palmitate
- Vitamin D2

This box is similar to Almond Dream Almond Milk but wait…. we got some glitz going on . Don’t be confused by the pretty box and “limited edition” gold banner. This is a DRINK. It is NOT ALMOND MILK…and to their credit, it is stated on the front, although the letters are small. Not all the ingredients on this list are “detrimental” to your health.
However, not all the ingredients on this list are “health enhancers” either. So why bother? Natural flavors is one of those things that has no definition or rules, so it’s totally unclear as to what is included under that list.
So why bother?
It’s a tempting, gorgeous, intriguing package, but you can do better for your body.
So Pumpkin Darling, what are you going to do if you love pumpkin? I have an yummy option for you! TRY THIS NAKED HEALTHY VERSION INSTEAD. Why have 15 not so healthy ingredients when you can have 4 naked goodies that taste just as good and feel even better. All you need are 4 simple ingredients:
- pumpkin puree
- almond milk
- date (optional: if you prefer sweeter, or you can add a drop of stevia)
- 1 tsp cinnamon and/or cinnamon stick
One serving calls for 1 cup almond milk, 1/4 cup pumpkin puree, 1 date and 1 cinnamon stick
Mix pumpkin and milk. Place in pot with one date and heat till smooth and creamy and warm. Remove date and eat it! YUM… Pour your warm pumpkin drink into a pretty mug, sprinkle with cinnamon and stir with your cinnamon stick.
