STORAGE & CARE FOR YOUR FRESH ALMOND MILK

  • just like dairy milk or fresh pressed juices, fresh almond milk NEEDS TO BE KEPT REFRIGERATED opened AND/OR unopened. if it’s been out of the fridge for more than 2 hours or sitting in the hot sun for 30min  THROW IT OUT!
  • shelf life is 5 days from production.
  • fresh almond milk splits (separates) after sitting for a while. this is normal. just give it a good shake before using.
  • our Vanilla Bean flavor contains FRESH vanilla bean. you’ll see the black specs in your milk…thats the good stuff!
  • our milks are 100% fresh, raw and unpasteurized this is why they have such a short shelf life . Zero additives, zero preservatives. Keep it cool!!!

Not only do these nutrient-rich nuts provide a wonderful substitute for our lactose intolerant friends, but also come jam-packed with vitamin E, manganese, and magnesium. All of which are necessary for a happy and healthy heart!  Did we mention anti-oxidants?
