FYI: An 8 ounce serving of Silk unsweetened vanilla almond milk (UAM) is 35 cals, 1 carb/1 fiber/0 sugar, so at 1/2 serving, I'm only dealing with 17 calories and <1 carb.
I think the Blue Diamond version of UAM is similar, but has five more calories and 1 more carb for an 8 ounce serving.
Ooh, I like these ideas. Been drinking my Mockachino all morning. Yum. But, I think I want to try to make it frothy and add that whipped cream. It will make it more real to me.
I have also wondered about the skim meal deal. It's nasty to me so when I heard about it I was like why bother. Regular milk or half and half make more sense to me. You might have to limit yourself to a cup of coffee but at least it would taste like the real deal.
