So Delicious Almondmilk Beverages are Back … for a Third Time

4

Over the years, So Delicious Almondmilk has come and gone more than once. I’m not sure why that product line hasn’t had more staying power, but they keep trying. Hopefully, the third time really is a charm, because we’d hate to lose this option again.

The latest reincarnation of So Delicious Almondmilk includes basic almond milk varieties for stocking your pantry and “clean” almond-cashew milk blends that are sold refrigerated. They all work well for recipes or sipping straight up.

So Delicious Almondmilk Reviews and Info - comes in almond and almond-cashew varieties. All dairy-free and vegan, with shelf-stable and refrigerated options.

So Delicious Almondmilk Beverages are Back … for a Third Time

I didn’t keep a record of the ingredients in their prior formulas, so I can’t tell you exactly how they’ve changed. We liked it before, but haven’t tried these newer bottles and cartons. If you try them, be sure to leave your rating and review below! It helps others make an informed purchasing decision. That said, I do have some more information.

Organic Unsweetened Almondmilk with Cashew

This organic, refrigerated product is one of So Delicious’s purest dairy-free milk beverage offerings. They basically use just nuts with just a little thickener and flavor since it’s a lighter blend and to keep it emulsified. It isn’t fortified.

Nutrition (per 1 cup): 35 calories, 3g fat, 1g carbs, <1g fiber, 0g sugars, 1g protein.*

Organic Vanilla Almondmilk with Cashew

Like the Unsweetened, the Organic Vanilla is made with simple ingredients and isn’t fortified. It’s much lower in sugar than most vanilla almond milks on the market, but has just enough to complement the vanilla.

Unsweetened Almondmilk 

This is more like the original So Delicious almondmilk from way back when. It’s made with relatively simple ingredients, but is shelf-stable and fortified.

Vanilla Almondmilk 

This is the vanilla version of their non-organic, shelf-stable line, so it’s also fortified. And it’s a little sweeter than their organic vanilla almond-cashew blend.

Versatile and good for regular use

5.0 rating
August 26, 2020

Perhaps a little backward in terms of product development, this snazzy line of “everyday” almondmilk beverages has come to fruition many years after the company’s protein-enhanced almond milks. But, it was worth the wait. The new line is carrageenan-free and has a nutrition label that will be pleasing to most. As for the taste, the Walnut Blend was a surprise favorite, the Vanilla was unbeatable with such low sugars, and the Unsweetened proved its versatility. The Coconut Blend didn’t win us over, but who cares – we loved the other three! The consistencies range from skim to 1% in comparison, not robustly creamy, but good for regular use.

    • Hi Carol, they discontinued this particular line and then recently reintroduced the almondmilk beverages – slightly different I think. I need to update with the new ones!

  1. I’m SO so glad that they’re finally transitioning into being carrageenan-free. I wish even more companies would follow suit.

    • From what I’ve been told regarding the product development, it is a really tough transition, so I’m not surprised so many milk makers are going slow with this. But they are determined at So Delicious to put the best out!
