So Delicious Dairy Free Launches New Almond Milk Products!
So Delicious Dairy Free is launching a complete new line of almond milk products! Yummy Plants got a sneak preview this week… And we’re glad to announce that these products truly are Sooooo Delicious!
You’ll hear the brand name So Delicious Dairy Free quite often on Yummy Plants. You’ll see their products listed as ingredients for our dairy-free recipes and many of our suggestions for delicious vegan dairy substitutions. So Delicious is our favorite source of non-dairy products… so we eagerly camped out by the mailbox to await samples of their new line of almond milk products! (We’ve been big fans of their Unsweetened Coconut Milk, the French Vanilla Coconut Milk Creamer, Chocolate Coconut Milk Yogurt, and Cherry Amaretto Coconut Milk ice cream for years). Wow, kudos to So Delicious! Their new almond milk product line absolutely exceeded our expectations. And we love this brand, so our expectations were pretty high!
The new almond milk line has 2 sets of products:
- Almond PlusTM – Protein fortified almond milk with 5 grams of protein.
- Almond Milk Frozen Desserts and Novelties – The world’s first dairy and soy free frozen desserts.
We didn’t realize that standard almond milk only has 1 gram of protein. Since almonds are such a good source of protein, we always assumed almond milk was as well. Not so… until now! The Almond Plus almond milk beverages by So Delicious are fortified with pea and rice protein, and contain all 9 essential amino acids. So now we can get a healthy dose of plant-based protein in every delicious glass! (And they are soy and gluten free for those with sensitivities).
We sampled the Original and the Vanilla flavors. Smooth, rich, creamy, and not too sweet… they were both delicious! And one of the many nice things about these products is that they actually have less sugar than many of the major brands of almond milks out there. (As a big fan of the Unsweetened Coconut Milk, we loved that!)
And there is still more to report. We also received 5 pints of the new dairy AND soy free almond milk frozen desserts and two of the Minis (frozen novelty bars)… oh… so… delicious!
We had no idea that many other frozen almond milk desserts still contained soy. And So Delicious has sweetened their new lines of frozen almond milk desserts with monk fruit to reduce the added sugar. We love that real fruit is one of the sweetening agents! Wow! It’s really cool to see a large company respond to customer feedback for less sugar. And these products are absolutely sweet, creamy, and yummy.
We sampled the Chocolate, Cherry Amaretto, Vanilla, Butter Pecan, and Mocha Almond Fudge. Yum, yum, yum!!!! We could hardly stop to take the photos because we were enjoying the desserts so much! Mint Chip will also be coming to a store near you, and we will be running to taste that flavor right along with you!
Our final samples were the unique Minis. The new launch of almond milk Minis includes the same flavors as the coconut milk versions we fell in love with last year:
- Vanilla inside with chocolate coating
- Mocha Almond Fudge inside with chocolate almond coating
- Vanilla ice cream sandwiches
We sampled the Vanilla and Mocha Almond Fudge. YUM! We loved the crispy chocolatey outside, (especially the almonds on the mocha fudge bar), and the rich, creamy inside. It’s really hard to believe that these yummy treats are dairy free, soy free, gluten free, and less than 150 calories!
We can’t wait to get to the store and buy some more of these treats! They’re being sold at most natural foods stores and nationwide chains including Walmart, Safeway, Super Value, and Wakefern. We hope there’s a retail outlet near you!
