Could be...: But there are many causes of diarrhea. If the almond silk is the cause diarrhea should resolve within a few days of stopping it. Prove that almond silk is the cause of diarrhea by drinking it after diarrhea has resolved. If loose bowel movements return promptly you will have a pretty unambiguous answer. Why not drink lactose-free milk?

Almond silk: Yes. If she has multiple food allergies see the allergist asap.
