Pineapple Upside Down Cake

I’ve seen Almond Breeze at the grocery store, but thought it was just for people who are lactose intolerant. I was wrong though! Almond Breeze can be enjoyed by anyone and tastes delicious on its own. It’s smooth and creamy and tastes like a nutty milk. It’s a great source of calcium, Vitamin E & D. Next time you have a recipe that calls for milk, use Almond Breeze in its place!
