Pregnancy comes with a lot of weird things. Aches and pains that change day-by-day. Kicks and flutters, food aversion to food cravings, and really that is just the start. I don’t talk about it a lot but somewhere in my early to mid-20s, this milk loving girl became lactose intolerant and it rocked my world. Somewhere down the line and into my first pregnancy with our angel baby, Ellie, I suddenly could have dairy once again.
It really is the weird thing. With each pregnancy, not only do my milk cravings spike but also, I am more tolerable to milk-based products. Of course, I indulge a bit in ice cream here and there, but one thing I am too afraid to attempt to regular ol’ milk again.
Just recently, I learned about a new milk alternative in the marketplace, New Barn Organic Unsweetened Almondmilk and was able to try some with my family. I am always on the hunt for a non-dairy solution, and just like my pregnancies in the past, I had been craving not only a great lactose-free option, but also one that was healthy for me and the baby. You know it must be good for you when it is Whole30 Approved!
New Barn Organic Unsweetened Almondmilk is gluten-free, soy-free, and produced in a peanut-free facility. It’s simple ingredients was exactly what I was looking for in choosing a wholesome milk alternative for this pregnancy and I couldn’t be happier. New Barn actually carries a few different products besides the Unsweetened Almondmilk like Original, Vanilla, Unsweetened Vanilla, Barista Almondmilk and even frozen dessert!
Creamer has been something on my list that I know is full of bad ingredients for my daily health. Thankfully, New Barn Organic also allowed us to try some of their barista line as well. It really creates an exceptional non-dairy experience. Professional baristas helped New Barn develop a formulation that produces luscious micro-foam, rich texture, and a beautiful mouthfeel that provides a delicate almond flavor. It’s a perfect touch of sweetness to my morning coffee after a long night with a toddler and a pregnant belly.
We are loving our New Barn products around the Bahorich home these days. I wonder if it has anything to do with New Barn’s Almondmilk having 3 times the almond content of other brands? That’s truly amazing! Dusty and I have been enjoying the almond milk with our holiday sugary treats these past few weeks and love the taste! You’d think something being unsweetened would taste kind of plain but this almond milk has a pleasant taste on its own.
New Barn Organic Unsweetened Almondmilk is available in thousands of stores across the country including Whole Foods, Lucky’s, and many more. Visit their website and use their store locator to find them near you. (Average retail price is $4.99-$5.99)
