We have not yet trialed Orgain Organic Protein Almond Milk, so this is an informational review post only. I cannot yet give it a rating or personally weigh in on the taste, texture, etc, but if you have tried it, please do leave a comment with your own review!

Orgain Organic Protein Almond Milk is the latest milk beverage to come onto our radar. It’s available in two flavors to start, Unsweetened Vanilla and Lightly Sweetened Vanilla, each with 10 grams of brown rice and pea protein per serving. It is labeled as vegan, soy-free and gluten-free and yes, it is made without carrageenan.

Orgain Organic Protein Almondmilk - This dairy-free, vegan milk alternative has 10 grams of protein per serving, is gluten-free and soy-free, and is Certified Organic and Kosher Parve.

Orgain Organic Protein Almond Milk is also fortified with calcium and vitamin D (25% of the RDA for each), and is low in fat. But please take note of the Orgain color spectrum. They make vegan nutritional shakes with blue packaging and dairy nutritional shakes with green packaging. However, these almond milks come in both blue (lightly sweetened) and green (unsweetened) packaging, but are both dairy-free. A little confusing if you are quickly glancing at their products, so make sure you read the labels!

  1. I tried the green one but am a little confuse.! It says unsweetened, and where it is marked 10x more protein , it says ” lightly sweetened”. Overall it was good, but what is the truth?

    • You are right Sarah, I didn’t see that! It looks like they have corrected the packaging to be “unsweetened” in both spots based on the new images from their website. I’ll have to check in stores to see if the actual packages have been fixed, but it is unsweetened.

  2. Tried it- tasted a bit too chemically due to the protein powder added. Probably will stick to my unsweetened soy milk(I love the taste of soy, is that weird?)

    • You might want to keep this in mind about soy….Soybeans contain isoflavones, which are chemically similar to estrogens. Soybeans are a complete protein source and a dietary staple in many cultures. Soy contains phytoestrogens called isoflavones that may mimic the activity of the hormone estrogen in your body.

      So, especially for men, but really for everyone, it’s good to keep soy to a minimum. Unless it is fermented. Tempeh is a good form of soy.

  3. I’m drinking it as I type this! Love it. I buy it every week. I get the unsweetened which I fine to have a very pleasant vanilla flavor. It is a tiny bit gritty due to the protein added, but it’s not bad 🙂

    • Good question! As noted, I can’t verify just yet on taste myself, but it has far more protein than any other almond milk I’ve seen. Most almond milks have 1 gram or less and this one has 10 grams per serving – more than cow milk! A good option for those who want to add more dairy-free / plant-based protein to their diets.

  4. My quick review: I liked it overall, and definitely liked the nutritional stats. The texture was ever so slightly chalkier than my go-to almond milk (Silk), but not so much that it made me want to stop drinking it.
