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.

Powdery texture.
Strong taste of almond extract. Don’t like it.

I love the flavor of the vanilla I’ve drank several types over the years. When I came across this it’s the only one I’ll buy now. Perfection!

I didn’t have time to go to my usual store to purchase Simply Almond for my protein shakes and cereal so ended up with another thickened, gross imitation of almond milk that floods other stores dairy cooler. Simply Almond has a wonderful flavor. Who needs guar gum in their milk anyways? Why is it thickened? Is it suppose to make it “creamy” so people will confuse it with real whole milk? I think not, Nobody confused it with pure milk… who are they kidding? Go with Simply Almond for a pure, delicious drink.

The product makes amazing foam for coffee however
Not organic however
And would like to know what “natural flavors” are added. That is a suspicious line in the ingredients.

Best Almond Milk

I have worked in health food stores for over 15 years. I have tried a plethora of almond milks and they always taste off to me whether it’s blue diamond, pacific, or a variety of fancy high priced almond milks. Simply has knocked this out of the park and had outdone what already existed in the health food industry. It’s like they added a few more almonds than the next guy.

Very happy I tried it. It’s perfect in my mixed berry smoothie & I’m also enjoying it in my chilled espresso. Grateful to be replacing some of my dairy fats

No unsweetened vanilla

The vanilla flavor is far too sweet and has 90 calories per serving. While I applaud the all natural approach, without an unsweetened vanilla version, I will not buy any more.

Disappointing

For the cost, I’ll just stick to oat milk for my coffee; it has a more natural taste anyway and is better for just about everything else.
