This past weekend I had the pleasure of connecting with many great bloggers and brands at the She’s Connected Conference held in Toronto. One of the many brands I had the pleasure of connecting with was Earth’s Own Almond Fresh
I have to admit I was a little apprehensive about making the connection. I had previously tried almond milk and I can’t say I was too pleased with the overall taste. I bit the bullet though and gave Almond Fresh a go. I’m so glad I did! The almond milk was smooth, refreshing and did not taste overly nutty (that was my issue with the previous brand that I had tried). 
Almond Fresh comes in many great flavours: chocolate, original, unsweetened, vanilla and (my personal favorite) coconut.

Almond Fresh is a great addition to any smoothie and a fabulous dairy milk substitute.

Did you know almond milk offers many health benefits?

  • Weight Management. There is lower caloric content in almond milk, which is great for individuals looking to lose or maintain weight.
  • Health & Nutrition. Almond milk is full of essential nutrients: magnesium, potassium, iron, vitamin B & vitamin E. 
  • Heart Health. Almond milk contains no cholesterol and minimal amounts of sodium. Consuming lower sodium and cholesterol levels are key to maintaining a healthy heart.
  • Muscle Power. The vitamin B and iron in almond milk are good muscle regulating nutrients. Iron helps muscles absorb and use protein for energy, growth and repair. You can obtain approximately 4% of your daily intake of iron when consuming almond milk.
So the next time you reach for the dairy milk to add to your smoothie, why not sub in almond milk instead?! It’s nutritious and delicious.
Here’s a simple and delicious recipe that you can serve up at your next party…
Almond Fresh Appletini

Ingredients
2 oz apple juice
1 oz Almond Fresh Unsweetened
splash caramel syrup
dash fresh lemon juice

Directions
1. Combine ingredients over ice in a martini shaker.
2. Shake vigorously and serve in martini glass.
3. Garnish with a cherry or apple slice.

And before I close off this post… Can I just say how excited I am that Almond Fresh will be releasing a Noël Nog over the holidays. As an egg nog addict, I’m ecstatic!

    I just recently tried Almond Fresh too, and I really loved it! The chocolate was my favourite, and I think that it will be a popular beverage.

    Like you I was nervous to try it but my kids have always loved it. I remember one brand I didnt’ like much. I should have known when they would only drink Almond Fresh. Anyway I tried it, and LOVED It. Looking for something to replace my Cows milk and I am glad they were there. Thanks for sharing and so glad I met you!

    Way back when I was a veggie, I drank So Good every.single.day. Recently I tried it again but it didn’t agree with me. I tried the Almond Go — Original at #SCCTO and I’m in LOVE.

    So nice to get a change to meet.
