Real almond milk is totally different than what you will find in the store, and amazingly delicious. Unfortunately it's also hard to find, expensive, and extremely perishable.
Personally, I use store-bought "AlmondMilk" (unsweetened vanilla Almond Breeze) in the preparation of whey protein shakes. I've cut down on those a lot, but when I was initially losing weight, I had a large amount every day, and it didn't stop me from losing most of my body fat and getting healthy. The carb and calorie count is negligible (it's watered down a lot compared to real almond milk) and the additives, like guar gum and calcium carbonate, are not really offensive. A harmless indulgence, in my opinion. But definitely check the label to make sure they're not sneaking in any potentially bad stuff, like unfiltered water or chemicals you don't recognize.
