New Almond Fresh Coconut - Delicious and RefreshingSaturday, August 11, 2012
Here we are, smack dab in the middle of summer. Ah, yes! Summer! By simple association, the season evokes images of sunny days, blue skies and sandy beaches. Granted I do not live in the tropics, I will, however further add palm trees, fruity drinks, and dare I say... cabana boys? As I shake myself back to reality, I call upon fond memories of my travels to the Caribbean. Among the endless nights of Latin dancing and jumbo shrimp, I also recall the distinct flavour of coconut water from a freshly picked coconut. This, my friends, is the latest and tastiest essence of Earth's Own Almond Fresh - Coconut.
Almond Fresh Anywhere
There are so many ways to enjoy the delicious taste of Almond Fresh. Mix it in a smoothie, add it to your cereal, or even bake with it. From pancakes and waffles, to pudding and trifle, Almond-Fresh.com has a myriad of recipes to try. And now you have five flavours to experiment with: Vanilla, Original, Unsweetened, Chocolate and the new Almond Fresh Coconut. In addition, Almond Fresh has also launched two new product formats: a shelf stable 946ml and a single serve size they call "Almond on the go." It's the perfect size to fit in your lunchbox or to take with you as you head out to the gym, hiking, skiing - virtually anywhere!
Not only is Almond Fresh low in calories, one serving provides 45% of your daily recommended dose of vitamin D and 50% of vitamin B12. It does not contain lactose or casein and is wheat and gluten free. And I was also happy to learn that their cartons do not contain BPA.
While my husband loves having cereal with Almond Fresh Coconut, my kids are not so keen on it. They much prefer a glass of the chocolate variety. Hmm, I wonder why. I'm sure it has nothing to do with the fact that, like their mother, they absolutely love anything chocolate. My sister-in-law, however, thoroughly enjoys the original and unsweetened varieties. She was drinking Almond Fresh long before I had even heard about it so I knew it was something I had to try out for myself.
While on the hunt for the new Almond Fresh Coconut, I was delighted to find them on sale at Metro for $3.99. Plus, you could get two bonus Air Miles with every purchase, though it expired a little over a week ago. I went to a number of stores that carry Almond Fresh such as Sobey's but I have yet to come across it in their single serve. Other stores include IGA Superstore, Whole Foods Market, Highland Farms, Loblaws, and Zehrs, just to name a few.
