We first told you about New Barn Organic Almondmilk back in 2016. It was the cleanest milk beverage to hit the mainstream, and contained just four to six ingredients. Some other pure brands have since emerged, and New Barn attempted to stay competitive with new flavors and new packaging. Unfortunately, they’ve struggled a bit. They’ve discontinued their Unsweetened Vanilla, and the flavors (Creamy Original, Chocolate, Cold Brew Cofffee, and Chocolate) barely made it to market. But they still make their classic Unsweetened (details below) and Barista Almondmilk.
New Barn Organic Almondmilk Keeps it Simple and Unsweetened
The new packaging (my pour photo is of the prior packaging) has 80% less plastic, it’s widely recyclable, and it’s made with 60% renewable energy. It’s also a full quart – four ounces larger than their prior bottles. However, it looks like the new packaging also meant a different facility or line. New Barn Organic Almondmilk used to be certified Kosher Pareve, but now it’s Kosher-D for a dairy line. See our Allergen Notes below.
No sugar is added and no coconut in this very simple dairy-free milk beverage.

RIP to these New Barn Organic Almondmilk Varieties
We hope that they will make it back to market. But for now, the Unsweetened Vanilla has been discontinued, and the Creamy original, Chocolate, Cold Brew Coffee, and Toasted Coconut didn’t quite make it into full blown distribution.

Go back to the old packaging
This is the best tasting organic almond milk. Unfortunately, the packaging has changed and it’s wasteful in a couple of ways. More plastic. The planet doesn’t need more plastic!
Plus, their plastic tops don’t stay on tight and when I use the almond milk, I’ve had several messy spills. I won’t be buying it anymore. It’s too expensive to waste.
I really thought this company was good and better then most Almond milk producers.As of late they are just unworthy of praise.Milk dated 3-23-23 purchased 1-30-23 ,Opened 2-3-23 It is almond buttermilk.Ruin my perfect cup of coffee.
Best almond milk ever
I have bring trying to go off dairy and have struggled for Years trying to find something close to real milk for my coffee.
Recently I tried new barn almond milk
It is the best no dairy milk I be found so far
I even drank a cup of almond milk with a little sugar and coffee
And it tasted great
I am a very picky person then it comes to taste of food
Just tried for the first time.
I am a huge milk drinker and have been all my life 60 years! Last year I got into the coconut milk phase and got used to drinking it. It is not always in stores I shop at. Everything is soy(yuk) and almond breeze (just okay)
Milk Barn brand is awesome I poured a glass and drank it down. I actually found it in grocery outlet for $1.99. However it expires in three days. I look forward to finding it elsewhere
Finally perfectly clean plant based milk
This is perfect … better than homemade, not over-priced, no gellan or guar gum. Only acacia gum which does not upset the stomach or intestines… tastes great … what more can I say…
Thank you Alisa
Natural with a fresh almond scent and lightly nutty flavor
It doesn’t get much more pure than this brand. The base flavor contains just spring water, almonds, acacia gum and sea salt, with no carageenan, fortification or other funny business. Consequently, the taste is very natural with a fresh almond scent and lightly nutty flavor. It’s very rich, so I don’t really think of it as a “straight up” drink. But I loved it in smoothies, baking and it holds promise in hot beverages. However, it should be noted that there is almond residue (it’s natural remember!), which is notable in the aftertaste consistency.
