New Almond Fresh Coconut - Delicious and Refreshing

Saturday, 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!


Refreshing and Nutritious


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.


Almond Fresh is owned by Earth's Own - a Canadian company with a passion for health and wellbeing. They have recently created a short survey to help them better understand what you love about Almond Fresh and what you would change given the chance. Your feedback is important and they value your opinions. As such, anyone who completes the Almond Fresh survey will be entered into a random draw for a one year's supply of Almond Fresh beverages. It only took me about five minutes so it's fairly short.

Also, Almond Fresh is offering five product vouchers redeemable towards Almond Fresh beverages to one of my Canadian readers. (Approximate value is $20.) To enter for a chance to win, please fill out the Rafflecopter form below.

  1. I had recently got a chance to try Almon Fresh due to a diet change (couldn't drink milk for a while). I must say it is refreshing I love the 'plain' one and Vanilla. It's usually sold out when I crave it. I have yet to try to Coconut one, I haven't seen it at my local Nofrills or WalmartM

  4. I just recently switched to almond milk. Tried Silk first and now I am on Almond Fresh. I use it in my cereal each morning. Surprisingly, my kids and husband like it too! I'd like to try the coconut flavour or unsweetened...can't find either here.

    1. I know what you mean. It's not always easy to find but there are five grocery stores all within the vicinity of where I live. So if I happen to be at a different store, I'll be sure to be on a lookout. I don't like to drive to a store just to find a single item.

  19. My son recently developed an allergy to milk, and milk products, so I have been trying different products. Since he absolutely loves chocolate, the chocolate Almond Fresh might be perfect! The almond Fresh Coconut is new to me, will have to give it a try as I love anything with coconut in it!

    1. Sorry to learn of your son's recent allergy discovery. We love milk and dairy products in our home so I can only imagine how difficult it would be to eliminate it from our diet. The good news is that there are many alternatives such as Almond Fresh and for many of them, my children don't notice the difference. Hope you find something your son will enjoy!
