Alright milk, it's been fun. We've had a few laughs and thankfully no one lost an eye, but are we really just going to settle for regular dairy milk the rest of our lives? We want to play the field! See what's out there. We're not getting any younger and that sinus problem isn't going to clear itself.
Daisy's been put out to pasture and I think it's time we assessed our other milk options so we won't be forced to take our coffee black. Almond milk is a fresh dairy alternative, but it's not easy to find in Brisbane's cafes.
Be adventurous, champion the unknown, and keep that pesky cholesterol in check. Who knows? Your skin might thank you for it…
