The new definition of WOW! #almondfresh

All natural almonds are ground into pure almond butter, which is then added to filtered water to make the base of Almond Fresh.

Passing a long the benefits of almonds in a fresh and delicious way is what Almond Fresh is all about.

This past weekend, I had an unique opportunity to learn a little about almond beverages and the advantage of consuming them.  I hadn't actually consumed an almond beverage previously, and I wasn't quite sure what it was all about.   I knew for sure that I've always loved almonds...in baking, or eating out of hand...so why not in a beverage?

And almonds offer many health benefits.
  • low in fat
  • cholesterol free
  • source of calcium
  • source of vitamin D
  • source of vitamin E
  • antioxidants

The last few days we've been enjoying Almond on the go in original and chocolate flavour.  These are convenient shelf-stable drinking boxes.  Yet, Almond Fresh is also available in refrigerated 1.89L containers, and 946mL shelf-stable containers, and it's manufactured in Canada.   Almond Fresh is great for those on gluten free and lactose free diets, and those looking for a certified kosher product. 

So, there are lots of benefits...but how did it taste?  Did the kids like Almond Fresh?

Almond on the go is rich in flavour.  We particularly like chocolate (think eating a chocolate covered almond).    Almond on the go is great as a drink alone, but it is also a tasty little pick-me-up.   Almond on the go is a nice mid-morning or mid-afternoon snack which is satisfying and filling.    We like almonds and think the taste is fantastic!  This product contains nuts (obviously) so it isn't suitable for sending to school, yet, it is great for when they come back through the door in the afternoon.

I am looking forward to trying Almond Fresh in my morning coffee, and on the weekend preparing some Almond Fresh Waffles, (a recipe found on the website).   The skies the limit when it comes to where you could substitute Almond Fresh in your diet.

 What's next for Almond Fresh?

Look for Earth's Own, Almond Fresh Noel Nog hitting store shelves just in time for the upcoming holidays.

The true test of a product is if the children ask for it a second time.  Both of my daughters have, and that tells me it that Almond Fresh is a hit in our home.  I can feel good about offering Almond Fresh for all the nutritional benefits, and a taste which they love.
