Trader Joe's Almond Milk UPDATE!
Major News. Trader Joe's offers a brand new unsweetened vanilla almond milk in the non-refrigerated section! Mr. Joe used to carry his own non-refrigerated brand years ago but stopped (which was a good call since the prior version was a watery tasteless mess). This new version is quite good. It tastes very similar to Blue Diamond Almond Breeze AND it does NOT contain carrageenan! There is some concern that carrageenan is carcinogenic so I try to avoid it (thereby freeing me up to worry about other major issues like endocrine-disrupting receipts).
In any case, this new Trader Joe's non-refrigerated almond milk is a solid, flavorful almond milk with good thickness. It does not taste nearly as scrumptious as the Trader Joe's refrigerated almond milk (which is one of my favorite things in life and tastes like whipped cream). But this new version is shelf stable before opening, so I can keep it around as a back up or take it to work.
Ingredients: almond base (filtered water, almonds), tricalcium phosphate, natural vanilla flavor with other natural flavors, sea salt, gellan gum, dipotassium phosphate, xantham gum, sunflower lecithin, vitamin A palmitate, ergocalciferol, (vitamin D2), D-alpha tocopheral (vitamain E).
