Taste Test: Our Favorite Almond Milks
We tasted almond milks in three flavor categories. We tried all of them plain. Any milks with more than 14g of sugar per cup were eliminated.
Our Favorite Sweetened Almond Milk365 Everyday Value Organic Original Almondmilk$3.39 (64 fluid ounces)This milk's great flavor is what you should expect from good almond milk—a warm, tangy nuttiness that's balanced by a just-right sweetness level. First-time almond milk drinkers likely won't have much to object to in this milk. It's neutral enough for your cereal or oatmeal. 60 calories, 2.5g fat per cup
Our Favorite Sweetened Vanilla Almond MilkBlue Diamond Almond Breeze Vanilla Almondmilk$3.49 (64 fluid ounces)Some vanilla almond milks we tried were overwhelmingly floral, but not this one. It was the most flavorful yet still balanced. Hints of warm vanilla blunted the milk's toasty almond notes. Add it to smoothies and milk shakes, or drink it alone as a decadent lower-calorie treat. 80 calories, 2.5g fat per cup
Our Favorite Unsweetened Almond MilkSilk Unsweetened Original Almondmilk$3.29 (64 fluid ounces)The flavor of raw almonds is prominent in this unsweetened variety. The mouthfeel is luxurious—thick and creamy, like high-fat milk. It's neutral enough to complement tea or coffee but is deliciously drinkable, so it could stand in as your morning glass of milk. 30 calories, 2.5g fat per cup
