This morning turned into one of those mornings when you wake up to ‘no milk’, which means ‘no coffee’ but you’re ‘too lazy’ to walk to the shop.
So you do the next-best thing and you ask your daughter if she would drive to the shop for you…? but of course, she’s way too busy.
Alas, I looked in the fridge once again, knowing too well that the only thing I was going to find, the only thing that even came close as a substitute for my usual coffee creamer, was a carton of Vitasoy Unsweetened Almond Milk.
So, Almond Milk it was.
Under normal circumstances, this would be classified as ‘last-resort’ actions so to soften the blow to my taste-buds, I decided to heat the Almond Milk and use honey for flavour rather than try to perfect my morning coffee.
I used an EXPRESSI Electric Automatic Milk Frother & Warmer to heat the milk, however, I wasn’t sure if the Almond Milk would froth so I removed the ‘frothing’ attachment and just used it to heat the milk.
I have since learnt that Vitasoy do have a product called Café for Baristas Almond Milk that has been specifically formulated for barista-made coffee.
Taking my first sip, I must say, the taste was a pleasant surprise; I mean, I could tell that it wasn’t dairy milk but I genuinely enjoyed my ‘unusual’ morning cuppa. Not only did I finish the entire drink in only a few gulps, I even went back for seconds.
Overall, Almond Milk tasted much better than I thought it would and I’d definitely buy it again.
