As I eliminated more things from my diet (e.g. meat and dairy) I had to adjust to having fewer options when I go out. Not the end of the world, but a minor inconvenience at times nonetheless.
In our area the only dairy alternative offered by most coffee shops is soy milk, but I try to avoid the stuff due to the high probability of it being genetically modified (thanks Monsanto!) and because it's known to be an endocrine disruptor (bad news for those of us with thyroid issues). It can be frustrating, but you learn to order your coffee black and move on with your life.
Every so often I encounter the rare unicorn of the coffee industry, the almond milk latte, and have to hold myself back from doing a happy dance right there in front of the barista. Slowly but surely more places are starting to offer almond milk as an option, but it's still pretty rare. I was thrilled to find a chain of coffee shops here in Metro Detroit that have it on the menu!
Peet's Coffee & Tea has locations in Commerce, Rochester Hills, Novi, Shelby Township, Royal Oak, Grosse Pointe, and Ann Arbor, and all of their coffee drinks can be made with almond milk!

Where else have you found almond milk lattes in Michigan? If you live elsewhere, are they easy to find?
