Turtle Mountain has been taking dairy-free functional foods to a new level; first with this line of Low Sugar Almond Milk Ice Creams (the Butter Pecan is my new creamy favorite!), and now with an innovated brand of milk alternative, called AlmondPlus Almond Milk Beverage. AlmondPlus is fortified with the usual suspects (calcium, Vitamin D, etc.) in addition to 5 grams of vegan rice and pea protein per 8-ounce serving!
I only had the opportunity to trial the Original and Vanilla varieties, which were both delicious. However, they have a new Unsweetened version that I haven’t seen in stores yet. I typically buy unsweetened almond milk, so I had hoped to weigh in on that option as well, but for those of you who like your milk alternative with a hint of cane sugar (8 grams per cup), I can definitely give AlmondPlus a thumbs up.
AlmondPlus is highly drinkable, addictive even, with a clean nutty flavor and a slightly rich, yet perfectly smooth consistency – think 1 to 2 percent milk, only sweeter, creamier, and with an almond finish.
