Here at Good Drinking, many of the recipes we've shared over the years feature almond milk. I LOVE almond milk. I live a keto lifestyle and use it for a lot of things, especially when I don't want the calories of coconut milk (which I do enjoy more). Unfortunately almond milk is costing too heavy a price on our environment and I'm going to have to say goodbye to it as a result.
I had no idea this was happening. Did you? In short, the process of making almond milk results in the death of billions of bees. In a world with bee decline already a worrisome threat, I just can't stomach it. The bees used in the production of almond milk aren't meant to live in the industry's conditions and as a result, 50 billion bees were killed in a single winter.
This breaks my heart. If you have other almond milk alternatives that you enjoy that you know to be less invasive on the environment, please share them with us! It seems like a pretty complicated issue to solve.
