Good Karma Flaxmilk in Creamy, Protein, and Lunchable Sizes

52

Flaxmilk has become popular over the years not only for Omega3 benefits, but also for taste. It tends to be lighter, yet creamier, and a little more neutral in taste than many other dairy-free milk beverages. Good Karma Flaxmilk is the leader in this space, and they have expanded their product line to include high protein and single serve options.

Good Karma Flaxmilk (Review): Dairy-free, top allergen-free, and vegan with Protein and single-serve options

Good Karma Flaxmilk in Creamy, Protein, and Lunchable Sizes

Though flaxseeds can’t rival the natural cream of coconut or richness of cashews, it turns out that a dairy-free milk beverage made with cold pressed flax oil does have the smooth consistency of dairy milk. And it tastes pretty darn impressive. Plus, each serving of Good Karma Flaxmilk contains 1200 mg of Omega 3 and is fortified with calcium and vitamins A, B12, and D.

Because this review comes from our earlier format, I have tasting notes with the flavors we’ve tried. Please note that we found the “regular” and “+protein” varieties to be very different. The +protein flavors had a bitterness I couldn’t quite get past, but another taster didn’t even notice. Please do feel free to leave your own rating and review below, and let us know which varieties you tried!

Vanilla

This flavor was much sweeter than I expected, almost hinting at dessert. The flavor is VERY vanilla, which I absolutely loved. It also has a semi-rich, 2% like texture that was incredibly smooth and easy to drink. I found it to be less thick than coconut milk beverage but smoother and more fulfilling than almond milk beverage. I think this one could be a big hit in almost any sweet recipe! As well as in everyday drinks like hot cocoa, coffee, and tea.

Original

Wow, the Original Good Karma Flaxmilk was, well … perfect. I could easily taste why this was a unanimous winner among dairy drinkers. It was fluid, smooth, lightly creamy, and yet refreshing. This classic variety has a hint of sweetness, but is relatively neutral in taste, with a seamless overall flavor. It seemed quite versatile, though I still wouldn’t use it in a purely savory recipe, like mashed potatoes.

Unsweetened

For my own personal use (beyond reviews), I typically purchase Unsweetened dairy-free milk beverage, so this was the flavor of Good Karma Flaxmilk I was most curious about. Truthfully, it wasn’t as scrumptious as the other two for the obvious reason: no sweetener. However, my interest in milk alternatives isn’t for sipping, it’s for everyday smoothies and recipes. The Unsweetened Good Karma Flaxmilk added just the right amount of body to my breakfast smoothies, and the fairly neutral yet somewhat savory flavor seemed like a fluid fit for most dishes.

Chocolate + Protein

For those of us who tasted bitterness in the other protein flavors, we could still detect it a bit in this flavor. But I’ve heard from many moms that their kids love these.

I was told to avoid almonds (dairy allergy) and thought I was finished as far as milk. I tried Good Karma Flaxseed milk and was sold. Delicious!

I was looking for low sodium milk and found this amazingly good product with only 110 mg of sodium. It tastes very good. I use it with cereals and smoothies. I recommend it.

I love the taste. I use unsweetened. My only question is why isn't the flax seed organic.

I’m trying to cut calories and I found the unsweetened Good Karma Flaxmilk to be delicious and I’m very picky. It’s pure white and makes delicious gravy. I want the seeds to be organic is my only issue. I’m vegan and l love that it is a drink fortified with calcium vitamins A, D2 and B12.

  1. Alisa,

    We started using it based on the brand name and also because it is a flax milk. So we get benefit of omega-3.
    Have you done any research to find out how much of nutrients from this milk come from minerals and how much from plant? Please explore and let us know.

    thanks,
