Typically, a glass of dairy milk contains 8g of protein per serving, and Orgain’s Organic Protein Almond Milk boasts an impressive 10g of protein per serving! “Mom” was floored by the fact that this Vegan almond milk not only contains more protein, but it is USDA Certified Organic, non-GMO, and contains no carrageenan, a common ingredient in dairy milk alternatives. Besides enjoying Orgain’s Organic Protein Almond Milk in a glass with your meal, you can use it in smoothies, on top of cereal or granola, or in baked goods!
