Almond Milk: good or bad??

What's everyone's thoughts on Almond milk in relation to a paleo diet?? I absolutely love the stuff but will do without it if I have too. Will drinking it prohibit my diet success??

Look at the labels on the almond milk--there's typically all kinds of nasty stuff in there. Now if you make your own that's a different story, but personally I'd go with coconut milk instead. Good fats and MCTs, no sugar, etc.

Just to back up Eric - nearly all commercial Almond milks I see are loaded with sugar. That is clearly NOT Paleo, or even if you aren't paleo, not a good idea in general.

If you know where to look, you can find straight almond milk, and that would be acceptable, though I personally don't care for the taste. I prefer to eat my almonds raw.
