Calorie Countdown Milk Replacement?


So my local grocery stores seem to have quit carrying this stuff. I love it for making shakes with, but alas. Does anyone know of a decent replacement for it?

Or rather, what do you mix your shakes with?


I use unsweetened, vanilla flavored almond milk. Per 8 ounces...

45 calories
3 grams fat
2 grams carbs, 1 gram fiber (If I recall)
Protein...I think it was 2 or so carbs

By itself it tastes alright...but in shakes in cereals I downright love the stuff. Makes shakes thick and creamy like milk. Definitely recommend it.

If not that, you could try using water+green tea. That's what John Berardi has suggested in the past, I myself haven't tried it yet though.


Almond milk hey... Sounds like it's got good stats, I'll have to keep an eye out.


half a cup of low fat milk, half a cup of water & half a scoop of protein gives about the same macronutrients. ill try get the dudes name who originally posted that on here...
