Milk-Free Find ~ Dunkin' Donuts Almond Milk Latte

Iced Almond Milk Latte

I know, I know, Starbucks has served up soy lattes for ages now.  But it's almond milk that I've had my heart set on for a looooong time.  I told Starbucks and all the local coffee shops that this would be a great idea.  But nobody listened to me.  I was about to open my own almond milk coffee shop before Dunkin' Donuts finally came through for me!

Dunkin' Donuts doesn't seem to be offering almond milk at every location.  But there is a location finder on their site so you can see if almond milk is available in your area.  I hope it is!  You can check locations here.

I am excited about this because I dislike soy lattes at Starbucks, and I don't feel 100% safe drinking dairy lattes around my son.  This almond latte option for me is just what I wanted for taste and safety.

IMPORTANT:  This is a milk-free find for mom.  I would not let a shop make drink for my allergy son.  One milk allergy boy died in the car after drinking a supposed soy hot chocolate from Starbucks.  I just can't trust someone else to make my son's food safely.  I know not everyone is this strict with their food allergies, but we always have been.  Just wanted to throw out that disclaimer.

I wouldn't let my son have a soy or almond milk hot chocolate from a coffee shop either. People just don't understand the seriousness, cross contamination, etc. I made a mistake once and let him have a sandwich at Tim Hortons (I live in Canada) that was supposed to be dairy free and apparently it wasn't (even though I checked their allergy chart and asked before ordering). The poor boy broke out in hives all over and we had to rush him to the ER!

Aliaa, thanks for chiming in. So sorry about the reaction. We learn something new with each one, don't we. Hugs!
