Why You’ll Love Organic Unsweetened Almond Beverage - Vanilla
One of the best things about eating a bowl of cereal in the morning is enjoying the milk left over in the bowl after all the grains are gone. It’s always infused with an intense flavor, and is a taste that’s rather hard to duplicate. With Pacific Foods Organic Unsweetened Almond Milk, Vanilla you can get the same super milk every morning of the week.
Pacific Foods finds the perfect balance of taste using a gentle roasting process that helps to bring out the natural flavor of the almonds, and then enhances it with a dash of vanilla. The result is an unsweetened, non-dairy product that can be enjoyed by itself or as a replacement for milk in your favorite recipes.
While cow’s milk has often been a go-to choice, it’s not all-inclusive. Those who have a dairy allergy or intolerance, or that follow a vegan diet, have had to find alternatives. While soy milk had its run, rising concerns about soy products has led people to find healthier options. That has has led to a rise in popularity of nut milks in recent years—and one of the most versatile continues to be almond milk thanks to its mild flavor and tons of added nutrition.
Health benefits of almond milk
While eating a handful of almonds is always great for an energy boost, you can have the same result by drinking a glass of milk made from the tasty nuts. Pacific Foods Organic Unsweetened Almond Milk, Vanilla is full of vitamins and minerals, such as riboflavin (B2), vitamin A, and vitamin D, that can help your body in many ways. Here are just some of the health benefits.
- Lower blood pressure: Almond milk is the ideal beverage for anyone trying to lower blood pressure. The phosphorous and vitamin D found in the drink are just what the body needs to ensure veins are working properly. Healthy veins allow blood to flow more freely and easily to all parts of the body, and also keeps them free from any blockages.
- Heart health: Monitoring cholesterol levels keeps the heart healthy and strong, which means limiting the amount of dietary cholesterol ingested on a daily basis. Almond milk is a great option because it doesn’t contain any added amounts. On the converse, it has a high amount of potassium, one of the main factors in reducing strain and tension on the heart.
- Stronger muscles: Riboflavin, iron, and protein are naturally present in the muscles that make up the body, and the combination is what helps to build muscle mass. Many of these vitamins and minerals can be found in almond milk, including 30 percent of the daily recommended value of riboflavin, which can lead to more body definition and physical strength when paired with regular workouts.
- Stronger bones: Just like dairy milk, almond milk has some amount of calcium that helps keep bones (and even teeth) healthy, and reduces the risk of osteoporosis later in life.
- Better vision: With 10 percent of the daily recommended value of vitamin A in each serving of Pacific Foods Organic Unsweetened Almond Milk, every time you use it, you are ensuring prime optical function. Vitamin A is essential to eyesight, particularly night vision, and can also be a way to reduce the chance of developing cataracts or macular degeneration.
Recipes using Pacific Foods Organic Unsweetened Almond Milk
Another big perk of Pacific Foods Organic Unsweetened Almond Milk, Vanilla is that it doesn’t require refrigeration, which means it’s perfect for taking on-the-go any time you want to have a nutritious drink. However, that’s just one way to enjoy it. Almond milk is also useful in cooking, especially as a suitable replacement for any recipes that call for dairy. Here are a few of Thrive’s favorite ideas.
Good to the last drop, indeed. The childhood favorite, cereal milk, gets a whole new twist with these fun doughnuts. Cinnamon crunch and corn puffs (or really any kind you choose) soak in almond milk for five minutes. After the cereal is removed, a good portion of the liquid is combined with almond flour, baking powder and soda, coconut oil, coconut palm sugar, and vanilla to create the dough that is baked instead of fried. The leftover milk is used as a glaze, which is topped by even more cereal and chocolate chips. Great for kids and adults, these doughnuts will be a new household favorite.
If a more traditional baked good is your preference, try this delicious banana bread that is layered with thick swirls of honey almond butter. All you need is some banana muffin mix, eggs, coconut oil or ghee, bananas, almond butter, raw honey, chopped almonds, and of course almond milk.
An alternative coffee creamer is another great way to use almond milk. Its thick consistency will mimic half-and-half and provide a healthy boost to your morning cup. While you can pair with a hot mug of coffee, cold brew is another option. Try Thrive Market’s kitchen hack, which explains how to make delicious cold brew in just three easy steps. All you need are coffee beans and water as well as some extra household tools.

Pacific Almond Milk unsweetened
With these types of containers the fluid goes "glug,glug"and splashes all over. A nuisance but doable. Flavor is good without any added sugars. very versatile. great anywhere milk is called for
Great to drink, great to use to thicken soups, really tasty, healthy, clean eating product. And great price here on Thrive.
I'll get this again.
Great for shakes!
Not bad, not great
I'm still hunting around for an Almond mill that doesn't have so many additives including carrageenan. I usually just have to make my own at home but it's time consuming. This Almond milk is good for making smoothies but putting it in your coffee...it breaks up (it has something to do with the heat and acid of coffee). I'm also not crazy about the additives in this brand but my stomach seems to handle it ok.
Good taste but...
Too bad there is carrageenan in the list of ingredients :(
Good customer service
Prices are great with the added discounts and free items to try.
love to have it with my coffee or oatmeal
Have gotten my family to drink this instead of dairy milk. It's very rich and creamy. Very good quality and taste.
I've tried many different brands of almond milk and this is one of my favorites.
Healthy and delicious
The Almond Beverage is delicious and very healthy.
I feel great that it is organic and made by a brand
that I trust.
Can't stop drinking this
I think I drink too much of this. I use it in everything.
I like the milk
what's not to like?!
organic, unsweetened in perfect packaging...i really do love the packaging, it is one of the reasons i tried this product hoping to like it...and i do!
It goes great in my shakes! It also is great the few times I have cereal!
The best almond milk
A staple in our home, this almond milk is delicious. We order it all of the time and simply love it.
Great tasting and will buyou again.
A Must Have!
A staple in our home & on every Thrive Order :). Delicious & awesome price.
Organic w/o Sugar
I have been searching for organic almond milk w/o the sugar and have not found one in the store. This one is the only one from the Thrive Market that does not have sugar. Will continue to order my supply from here. So thankful.
The only almond milk without extra calcium
This is very important to me as I have a health condition where added calcium is NOT a good thing. All the other almond milks are fortified with it, as a pretend equivalent to dairy. Thank heavens there is this one without the added calcium. Also tastes pretty good.
Great taste without the sugar
I have been looking for organic almond milk without the sugar and this brand is just what I was looking for. Great taste and flavor. Will continue to order.
This will become a staple in our fridge. Great for cereal.
It is almost impossible to find organic and unsweetened in my area so I needed to find a way to have it. This is perfect. I make my own beverage by mixing this with the canned coconut milk found at Thrive and have my coffee creamer. This is good either alone or with the coconut milk for cereal or any other milk use.
I like it
Lately I am substituting all milk with almond milk because I read it's healthier. I usually drink Silk vanilla one. But I wanted to try this unsweetened one. And I like it. I mix it with my matha green tea every morning. Yum!

This isn't milk!
At first, I thought I had received a bad batch of almond milk. After looking at the container closely, I realized I had purchased an almond 'beverage', not milk.
There was no dissatisfaction with the taste...there was a good, mild vanilla flavor. However, I am used to the thickness of almond milk. My husband enjoyed it, on the other hand. But it was just too watery and translucent for my liking.

ALWAYS in my pantry!
I've never liked regular milk, and to be completely honest, I've never really enjoyed almond milk, but the almond milk from Pacific foods had just the right combination of flavor and consistency to make me change my mind. It's got a nice, subtle almond flavor that the vanilla complements really well, and it isn't watery or chalky like other milk alternatives I've used. I like that it has some body to it and it brings a creamy texture to anything I put it in. I enjoy using it in my breakfast shakes so I go through it fairly regularly and I just about died when I saw the price here. I've seen it (and bought it myself) for almost twice what the price is here--even when I look for bulk rates! It's got a lot of other great things going for it too--organic, non-gmo, great company values, and it's not inundated with sugar. All in all really delicious and nutritious, definitely made an almond milk convert out of me.
Awesome Flavored Substitute to Dairy
I have not been able to have dairy sense I was a young girl and was content with Lactaid for long time until I found almond milk. This brand is fantastic and I love the vanilla flavor. I use it in my coffee and smoothies. The biggest issue I find the sugar content in these sweetened beverages. This one is moderate and I would absolutely buy it again.
I am extra happy that this one is not a pull tab. For years, I have been breaking the tabs and having to open the carton with a knives. No more!
- Ignacio Estrada
I'd like to first say that I am a big Pacific Foods fan because their products are non-GMO, gluten-free, and organic. This vanilla almond milk is great in my opinion, I think it has the perfect amount of vanilla that isn't too sweet or overbearing. I've also noticed that the slightly roasted almonds give it a bit of a richer taste compared to other almond milks. Excellent product.
- J. Hammond
Best non-dairy milk
This the best almond milk out there - very clean and natural. No fillers - just the necessary, healthful, organic ingredients. My favorite non-dairy milk.
