Unsweetened Almond Beverages

March 20, 2017—Fearlessly Archived—Still a fun read; price & availability may have changed. 

At Trader Joe’s, we have myriad “milks” as alternatives to dairy – soy, rice, coconut, and almond-based offerings among them. We sell them refrigerated as well as shelf-stable – we love the convenience of having a carton in the pantry, ready for whenever we might need it. Among our pantry-friendly lineup, you’ll find Trader Joe’s Unsweetened Almond Beverages (Original and Vanilla flavors). Go pantry!

Almond “milk” has undergone quite the transformation over the past several years. For years relegated to a very niche market here in the U.S., a little historical research reveals that almond-based beverages were quite popular in Europe and China as far back as the 15th century. In Europe, almond beverages (known as amygdalate) were especially popular during Lent, when dairy products were strictly forbidden. After a few hundred years out to pasture, so to speak, their popularity surged yet again. Now, in the early years of the 21st century, almond beverages have come full circle, recently surpassing soy beverages as the most popular vegetarian “milk” in American homes. Go, almonds!

Our Unsweetened Almond Beverages come in both Original (unflavored) and Vanilla flavors. They’re made with California almonds, and without added sweeteners of any kind. They’re mild-tasting, slightly nutty, and excellent sources of Vitamins D & E, as well as calcium. Lactose and dairy free, they’re also vegan, soy free, and gluten free. Pour them over cereal or into smoothies; mix into pancake batter or other baking recipes. We’re selling each 32 fluid ounce, shelf-stable, resealable carton for $1.79, every day. Go, value!
