Almond Breeze Blends the Creaminess of Almonds, Cashews & Coconuts

1

Almond Breeze Blends are milk beverages made with almonds and cashews or coconuts. They’re richer in consistency than the brand’s regular almond milks, with a pour much like 2% dairy milk. They also have a full-bodied mouthfeel and nutty flavors that coexist tastefully.

Additional Allergen Notes*

Here’s how Almond Breeze addresses the shared equipment with some of their products:

Refrigerated Almond Breeze is certified Kosher OU-D, meaning they are dairy free products made on heated equipment that may also be used for dairy products. Blue Diamond uses stringent equipment cleaning and testing procedures to ensure that products made on dairy equipment are dairy-free. For individuals following orthodox kosher rules, dairy-free products processed on heated equipment also used for dairy may not be eaten together with a meat product. Refrigerated Almond Breeze is safe for individuals with dairy allergies.

All Shelf Stable Almond Breeze products are certified Kosher OU meaning that all ingredients are kosher certified containing neither meat nor dairy ingredients or derivatives.

Both Refrigerated and Shelf Stable Almond Breeze are safe for individuals with dairy allergies.

Although they do handle almonds, cashews, and coconuts for their products, their facility is peanut-free. And they state that all of their products are gluten-free and egg-free.

Though I’m still a bigger fan of their regular almond milks, these work better in recipes. They’re richer and have more neutral flavors. Their regular almond milks are a little too nutty for some recipes, but these seem to be milder. We tried the almond-coconut unsweetened flavors.
