New Barn Almondmilk at Whole Foods!

unnamed (2)

New Barn Almondmilk, the first organic almond milk made with six or fewer simple ingredients and three times the protein, is now exclusively available in the refrigerated dairy sections at the 56 Whole Foods Market stores in Southern California, Arizona, southern Nevada and Hawaii.


With three flavors to choose from—unsweetened, sweetened and vanilla—New Barn Almondmilk comes in convenient, highly recyclable PET 28 fluid ounce bottles and costs $4.99.


What makes this almond milk different? It’s made with more almonds—which means more protein, healthy fats and an overall higher nutrition content. Ingredients include organic almonds, spring water from California, U.S.-grown organic maple syrup in the sweetened version, organic acacia gum and sea salt.

New Barn Almondmilk provides a high-protein dairy alternative and tastes great in cereals and other recipes, such as almond butter thumbprints, cranberry almond granola or protein-packed vegan quiche. For additional recipe ideas, click here.

I had the opportunity to try out the New Barn Almondmilk and my son and I were quite impressed! My favorite is the Sweetened and my son liked the Vanilla. It’s great with cereal and I will be making the Almond Butter Thumbprints soon! I like that it tastes really good and only has a few ingredients. It truly is our new favorite almond milk!
