I wrote an update on New Barn’s Almondmilks a couple of weeks ago, but there was one variety I didn’t full cover. New Barn Barista Almondmilk is slightly different from the others in formula, certifications, and function. It’s also intended as The Barista blend is intended as a creamer, not an almondmilk for straight up drinking. So I thought it deserved a separate page in our dairy-free creamer section specifically.
New Barn Barista Almondmilk disappeared from the shelves for a little while for a product packaging change. They switched from a bottle to a carton, which has 80% less plastic, is widely recyclable, and is made with 60% renewable energy. And now it’s back!
New Barn Barista Almondmilk is the Creamer of the Crop
New Barn sourced pro baristas to help them create a formulation with rich texture and a smooth mouthfeel that would also create the perfect micro foam and latte art. The result does foam wonderfully, and it melds into coffee with a very mild flavor. It reportedly works well in both hot and cold drinks, too.
For some reason, they’ve listed the serving size as a whole cup on the nutrition facts! A standard creamer serving size is listed as 1 or 2 tablespoons. New Barn Barista Almondmilk contains only about 8 calories and less than 1 gram of fat and sugars per tablespoon.
Ingredients: organic almondmilk, filtered water, organic almonds, organic cane sugar, dipotassium phosphate, sea salt, gellan gum. Contains: almonds.*
Nutrition (per 1 cup serving): 120 calories, 8g fat, 11g carbs, 0g fiber, 11g sugars (includes 11g added sugars), 3g protein.*
Additional Allergen Notes*
It looks like the new packaging also meant a different facility or line. New Barn Barista Almondmilk used to be certified Kosher Pareve, but now it’s Kosher-D for a dairy line.
According to New Barn, “Our products are not made on dairy free lines but we have extremely stringent allergen protocols.” Contact them directly to discuss their protocols if you are dealing with any type of severe or highly sensitive food allergy.
