Review of Rude Health Almond Drink Organic

Well, I am currently enjoying almond milk as part of my daily breakfast and as I am currently on a quest to try a variety of dairy and lactose free milks I thought I would give this a try. It is marketed as an almond drink as opposed to milk. The only allergen listed is almonds, it contains no refined sugars, nothing artificial and non gm. It is made from a combination of natural spring water, organic rice, organic almonds, organic sunflower oil and sea salt.

It is a UHT and comes in a Tetra Pak which is brown with a picture of a ladies face enjoying the drink. A 100ml serving contains 56 calories, 1.49g of fat, 4.7g of sugar and 0.1g of salt. On pouring it into a glass it looks like an ordinary milk, being white but slightly thin in consistency.

On sipping the milk, I got a subtle hint of almonds which was sweet. On heating it in the microwave for my usual time to have it with my weetabix it kept its consistency and did not seperate. It added a sweet flavour to my weetabix which was subtle but not too overpowering or artificial in taste. I did enjoy this drink. The combination of the almonds and rice appeared to work well together. I personally prefer unsweetened milks as I dont generally have a sweet tooth. Would I have this again, yes I would. So if you are dairy / lactose free like me why not give this a try. So thank you to Rude Health for producing an alernative milk style drink for me to have at breakfast.

  1. I live in Florida…so will check to see if Rude Health Almond Drink Organic is available…I’ve been trying the almond “milk” I find at the grocery but so far haven’t found a taste or texture that appeals. For 6 years I’ve been a lacto/ovo vegetarian…still using eggs and dairy products for some of my protein. Thanks for sharing about this almond drink 🙂

    • Hi, I’m not sure if it’s available in America. I hope you find an almond milk you enjoy soon. I keep finding new milks to try. I seem to prefer unsweetened versions, but it’s all down to personal taste.

  2. Hi 🙂 I too have tried a lot of dairy free milk… I actually think I have tried them all! 🙂 this one is by far my favourite! I actually just picked up 2 cases of them from my health food store a couple of days ago (if you order them in bulk they give you 15% discount) as we go through them a lot here. I used to love the other great almond milk which is called Ecomil but is actually not quite as nice (it s 100% almond! which is love but tends to take over) and more pricey! 🙂

    • I’ve got the Ecomil one to try. I am finding it amazing how the almond milks vary in taste. My favourite at the moment is Aplro unsweetened, low in calories and not too sweet. I’ve got so many more to try yet.
