Toasted Coconut Almondmilk, Califa Farms

Happy New Year 2017! We are back and blogging, like we promised! In the spirit of the holidays and cold weather, you might be thinking drinks to warm you up. I know that has been on my mind. I bought the Toasted Coconut Almondmilk with that intention, but found myself a bit disappointed. I grappled with what grade to give to this product and I settled on a C. I can’t give it the Veggie Product Reviews Seal of Approval because it is not good enough for our seal. Read on to see why.

Product:Toasted Coconut Almondmilk by Califa Farms

Overall Grade: C

Pros:

  • This product is soy-free, vegan, gluten free, carrageenan-free (for those that care), non-GMO, and BPA-free
  • This product has 45% of your daily needs of calcium, that is more than milk!
  • This is a low calorie drink at only 45 calories per serving
  • It was acceptable as a base to hot chocolate (see the cons to explain)

Cons:

  • This product did not taste good cold or warm on its own. It had a very fake coconut flavor and it was hard to drink. I was only able to drink it as a base to hot chocolate.
  • The beverage is a bit thin and not as thick as other vegan milks.
  • The fake coconut flavor was overbearing. It is all that I could taste when I drank it alone.
  • There is only 6 servings per container. Most other vegan milk brands contain 8 servings per container.
  • With only 6 servings, this milk is expensive.
