Alpro Unsweetened Almond Milk

Almost a year after the launch of Alpro’s two new ‘Nut’ milks (see review), comes a new variation on the Almond Milk. This new milk is called Alpro Almond Milk Unsweetened and is available to buy in ambient form and chilled fresh.
As you can tell from the name, this new Alpro Almond has no added sugar, so has even fewer calories than the original.

The new Alpro Almond milk unsweetened has as much calcium as regular semi skimmed cow’s milk. Vitamins include the antioxidant Vitamin E, and Vitamin D. And if you’re looking for a VERY low calorie milk, then this about the lowest you’ll find.

The original Alpro Almond sweetened variety was already extremely low in calories with just 24 per 100ml. But, once the sugar has been left out, the new Alpro Unsweetened has a mere 13 calories per 100ml.

On the pack:
 “This blend of lightly roasted Mediterranean almonds and spring water has no added sugars, so you can enjoy the taste of Almonds at their purest.”
I’m already a fan of Alpro’s nut milks so couldn’t wait to try this one out. However, since I have such a sweet tooth, I was doubtful whether I’d enjoy it unsweetened. But with so few calories, I really hoped I would.

Happily, I can say, yes, it’s really very nice. True, it’s not sweet. But somehow, the nut flavour comes through slightly clearer now. The milk is very light (and extremely white) with a subtle, but noticeable almond flavour.

I'm also finding it tastes nice in my cups of tea, which is quite opposite to my experiences with the sweetened milk. I also mix a bit with my regular soya when making cappuccinos which gives an extra depth of flavor to the coffee.

I will definitely be making repeat purchases of this milk. However, at £1.59 at the time of writing, it’s about 30-40p more expensive than plain soya milk.

Found in Tesco.

  1. I was pleased when I found this alpro unsweetened almond milk I hadn't tried the other variety as I tend to prefer unsweetened milks. I'm not even a big nut fan but this tastes very nice in porridge.
    Also, a bit off topic and unrelated to this post but have you tried asda's brioche vanilla swirls? I recently tried them and thought they were very nice- they come individually wrapped in packs of 6 and contain 144kcals so not too bad and they are suitable for freezing which is a bonus for me as I live on my own.

    1. Almonds are probably my least favourite nut, but it tastes great in this milk. And no, I haven't tried those vanilla swirls, but they sound very tempting...
