thingsthatwedo.com - earths own coconut almond freshSeriously, we’re not playing favourites but I do think the folks at Earth’s Own have another winner on their hands.

My big kid loves the Earth’s Own regular almond beverage (aka almond milk in our home even though I know it’s not ‘milk’ per se) and her parents (that would be us!) love its coconut cousin. The Earth’s Own Almond Fresh Coconut Almond beverage is slightly sweet and super yummy. It’s the perfect little dose of coconut to make my mornings shine. Honestly, it makes my morning breakfast a super happy event. – Continue Reading

thingsthatwedo.com - foods alive dominican raw cocao powder

I’m tired, I’m exhausted, and I’m convinced the Zzzs are going to win this round. My friend suggests we make hot chocolate. This is not your average hot chocolate. She wants to make hot chocolate using organic raw cocoa powder, good honey that she got from a friend’s farm, and some almond milk.

I agreed and boy, am I glad I did.

thingsthatwedo.com - earths own almond on the go chocolate flavourCopyright© 2014 ThingsThatWeDo.com. All Rights Reserved.

Our family drinks almond milk or almond beverage (whatever you want to call it, you know what I mean). We’ve been trying different varieties and we’ve tasted a few different flavours. Up to now, we’ve only tried almond milk that comes in a carton. Recently, we decided to try Earth’s Own Almond on the go! in chocolate flavour. They came in these cute little tetra boxes and were perfect for carting around.

If you’re looking for an almond beverage and you want to treat yourself, you should definitely give Earth’s Own Almond on the go! in chocolate flavour a try. I’m not a chocolate fan and I like it! – Continue Reading

Back in February 2014, I did a review on the Earth’s Own Original Almond Beverage. At the time, I was okay with it but I wasn’t overly impressed. It was one of those 946mL tetra box almond drinks and seemed relatively average in taste. I’d buy it on sale but wouldn’t necessarily pay full price for it.

Fast forward a few months and the hubby picks up a carton of Earth’s Own Original Almond Beverage. He had headed over to the fridges at our local grocery store and picked up one of those larger cartons. Reason? He’s trying to up his calcium intake and since dairy doesn’t agree with him, almond milk seemed the next best thing.

You’re not going to believe what the family thinks of Earth’s Own Original Almond Beverage now.

I have decided that sweetened almond milk is NOT for me. I like my almond milk or almond ‘beverage’ plain, original, or neutral. How did I learn this fact? Well, I recently picked up this carton of Silk True Almond Vanilla Fortified Almond Beverage. Why? It was on sale and the plain ol’ regular one was sold out. So, I settled for this one.
BIG MISTAKE.

I’m in the mood to try something a little outside my comfort zone but not much. It’s been a hard week and there’s only so much change that I can handle at one given time. I spot the Earth’s Own Original Almond Beverage on my grocery store shelf. I’ve never had it before so why not give it a try? Okay, I’ll be honest, the ingredient list isn’t stellar (it’s got canola oil and you know how I feel about that) but it isn’t enough to completely scare me away.

Given my tired state of mind today’s post will be a relatively short one but I’ll try my best to entertain!

I’ve never had chocolate almond milk (aka that non-dairy almond beverage). I’ve always preferred the basic non-flavoured versions but on this particular shopping excursion, I decided to pick up the Natur-A Enriched Chocolate Almond Beverage. I wanted to try something different yet familiar. It might also be a nice decadent treat that still has enough goodies in it to not make me feel too guilty about drinking it!

So..about this Natur-A Enriched Chocolate Almond Beverage….

I drink almond milk aka almond beverage, non dairy almond drink or whatever else you’d like to call it. Ever since I made the switch to drinking almond milk (okay, I know it’s not milk per se but quite frankly, it sounds odd calling it an almond beverage so bear with me) I’ve come to realize that there are a lot of brands that make it.

True to ThingsThatWeDo.com form, I’ve tried to sample different brands whenever possible. My choices are often fueled by price and availability. So, for today’s product review, I decided to take a closer look at the Pacific Foods Organic Almond non-dairy beverage (that’s a mouthful).

The Pacific Foods Organic Almond non-dairy beverage was on sale at just under $3 so was closer to the usual price I’d pay for my regular almond drink. Normally, it’s quite a bit higher which is why I haven’t gone near it prior to today. Let’s see what this is all about, shall we?

Those of you who regularly read ThingsThatWeDo.com know I’m not exactly a milk drinker. Correction, my body communicates to me in very specific ways when I drink milk. Yogurt, cheese, ice cream are all happy places to be but milk screams with a big capital N-O. Thus, almond drinks have been my go-to source for calcium and other goodies.

Now, I usually venture towards the basic almond drink. I can’t imagine drinking strawberry or chocolate almond drinks and I already know I didn’t like that coconut almond drink that I tested a while back. So, it should come as no surprise to you all that this will be the first time I’m trying out a vanilla flavoured almond drink.

Allow me to introduce you to Almond Dream Enriched Vanilla almond drink. Ask me why I decided to test it out and I’ll be honest and tell you that I bought the Almond Dream Enriched Vanilla almond drink because it was the only one on sale. None of my other regulars were on sale which is the only reason why I decided this would be the week to test it out for ThingsThatWeDo.com.

I don’t have high hopes because I’m just not a big fan of flavoured almond drinks. I can only hope the Almond Dream Enriched Vanilla almond drink is palatable.

I drink almond milk. I know it’s not real milk and technically not almond ‘milk’ but that’s what I like to call it. I prefer sweetened almond milk but I thought I’d give the unsweetened almond beverages a try too. I mean, do I really need the sugar? NOPE. I just like the taste. So, why not give the unsweetened ones a try?

For today’s taste test, I chose the Natur-a Almond unsweetened enriched almond beverage. Why? It was on sale. At under $2 for a 946 mL container, I thought it was a great deal. I just hope my palate thanks me!
