Taste the Dream Announces a New Almond Milk, Recipe, and Chance to Win


Almond Dream Non-Dairy BeverageAlmond Dream Non-Dairy BeverageHain Celestial has an arsenal of dairy-free foods stashed under their giant umbrella of products, yet they never cease in developing new ones.  Their latest introduction goes head-to-head (or milk-to-milk) with Almond Breeze and Pacific Foods, the lone giants of almond milk in the U.S.  Under their Taste the Dream product line, Hain Celestial has introduced Almond Dream. It is available in Original and Unsweetened and is boasted for being lower in calories than its competitors with slightly less sugar and more vitamin and mineral fortification. However, Pacific Foods is still the only of organic almond milk. Of course, a new product introduction would not have as much oomph without a few added eye-catchers …

To gain your attention, Hain Celestial is offering a “Taste it, Dream it, Win it” contest, which is very easy to enter.  Simply fill out the online entry form, and let them know if you would like a shot at a dream wardrobe, dream job, or dream vacation. The drawing is open to U.S. residents only, but you can enter until June 30, 2009 at 11:59 PM (EST). .

Specifically targeting their new product, Hain Celestial has also offered up this deliciously sweet recipe using their new Almond Dream non-dairy beverage:
