I have been super over my blog lately, but, I had to share this awesome new find with you all because it really is a great discovery. My girlfriend Ana posted this coffee drink on her instagram the other day, leaving me curious for more info, because I am obsessed with coffee and almond milk. I used to drink it all of the time until I learned about the nasty additives most almond milk comes with. Carrageenan and Xanthan Gum are two additives I personally avoid, so I was beyond happy to learn that the Califia Farms brand uses less than 2% of these in all their products. (Seems to be impossible to find products without any additives, as they are what keeps them “fresh” in stores.)
If you are wondering why I avoid those two additives, you can read more about that here.
Califia Farms Iced Coffee & Almond Milk
This just has coffee, water, almonds and pure cane sugar = the perfect iced coffee. Sure, sugar isn’t the best for you, however, when it comes to coffee I need a little sweetness and this is the perfect way to get exactly that. I can honestly say this stuff is the yummiest coffee I have ever had, I had to force myself to stop drinking it. I think I drank 3 servings in the last 45 minutes, oops.
Califia Farms also makes almond milk, with less than 2% of additives, so if you love almond milk, and want to make a healthier choice, I would suggest trying this brand out instead. As if I wasn’t already obsessed, I just found out they also make different flavors of their iced coffee, yum I want them all.
If you are interested in trying these out, I would suggest using the store locator on their website here, because their inventory varies from city to city. I found the “Double Espresso” flavor at Stater Brothers, along with two of their almond milks, however not all stores carry their full line so it’s best to check before.
