Almond milk is made from ground almonds and water. It is suitable for vegans and vegetarians since it does not contain any animal products. I like to use almond milk in low calorie cocktails because it is significantly lower in calories when using plain or unsweetened versions. Almond milk also adds a great nutty kick to the flavor of any drink.

Almond milk gives the low calorie Coco Wisp cocktail silky smooth texture with hint of nuttiness. It feels and tastes like a decadent Pina Colada. Simply marvelous! Just think, almond milk allows you to enjoy all this indulgence without all the calories. Low calorie cocktails never tasted so good!
