We’ve seen a lot of Califia dairy alternatives come and go, but this dairy-free half & half has not only persisted, it’s also expanded to include five varieties. And yet, I realized the other day that we didn’t even have Califia Farms Better Half listed on Go Dairy Free! I’m fixing that issue with this detailed post in our newer format. If you’ve tried this creamy product, you can leave your own rating and review below.

Califia Farms Better Half is a Half Coconut Cream & Half Almond Milk

Although it’s often sold in the refrigerated section, this dairy-free half & half alternative is actually shelf-stable, until it’s opened. Each variety has the same creamy base, but a different flavor or sweetness profile.

Unsweetened

This completely unsweetened variety is made for most applications, which is why it’s available in both the small 16 ounce and larger 32 ounce sizes.

It might be a “classic” variety, but you’ll only find this one in the smaller packages. It’s also the only variety sweetened with cane sugar (just a touch) instead of monk fruit.
