Simply Almond Milk goes Mainstream with 5 Ingredients or Less

0

Coca Cola has finally entered the North American market of plant-based milk. Back in 2013, they purchased the UK brand Innocent, which makes juices, smoothies, and milk alternatives. But Simply Almond Milk is their first domestic dairy-free milk beverage, and it falls in line with the juice brand’s wholesome image. Each variety contains just 3 to 5 ingredients (4 to 6 if you count water) and is free of thickeners and emulsifiers.

Best Commercial Almond Milk Around!

Rated 5 out of 5
September 21, 2021

They keep the ingredients simple which makes this almond milk taste the closest to homemade. It’s thee absolute best commercial almond milk out there. I’d choose it over Silk, Almond Breeze, Califia Farms, So Delicious and any other major almond milk brand around.

2% almonds and notice they do not tell on the labels anywhere. Not required by law. Most coconut/ almond “milk” is 98% water.

Curdles with Coffee - Revolting!

I’ve been using other brands of almond milk with no problems. Simply Almond separated/curdled in my coffee. I tried shaking it better but still the same problem. I called the company (Coca-Cola) and was assured that it was fine. I offered to send them pictures as I asked for a refund or a coupon for another product as I could not serve this to my family. I was told that they could not do anything for me.

A very refreshing and low calorie drink. I do wish it had more nutrients; but then it would
have more calories. Compromise!

Natural Flavors Are a Mystery

I called the company to inquire about natural flavors and I was told that I don’t have the right to know any information about the names of the ingredients. I vehemently disagree, as a consumer you absolutely have the right to know what you ingest.

Response from Go Dairy Free

You have the right to know if there are any top allergens used, and the right to not purchase. But companies are legally allowed to have proprietary ingredients.

I love this milk substitute but wish it was made with raw almonds. Roasted almonds lose their good oils when roasted.

It’s a nice change compared to the thick texture of other almond milk brands I’ve had. All of our palettes are different, some reviewers say they cannot taste the almonds, some have no problems. I am right in between– I can taste the almonds but the milk is still a little watered down. And what I do not like is the fact that I combined this with Java House cold brew liquid pods, and the milk curdled :/But it seems fine when I combine it with tea!
