Kirkland Organic Almond Milk with Vanilla

And just for clarification, all of these products are labelled as a “Non Dairy Beverage” for various legal reasons but everyone still calls them “Almond Milk”.

Is Almond Milk from Costco Good?

I think the almond milk from Costco is great.  However, I have found that almond milk is one of those products where people develop some pretty strong brand loyalty and folks are hesitant to switch products once they find one that they like.

There are a couple of different varieties of almond milk at Costco but I am going to focus on the Organic Unsweetened Almond Milk with Vanilla.

I pulled up the Amazon reviews for the Kirkland Organic product to give you a more balanced perspective rather than just my opinions.  There were almost 1,000 reviews and they are overwhelmingly positive.

When you combine the 5 and 4 Star reviews the Kirkland Organic Almond Milk has an 87% customer satisfaction rating. Some representative comments from customers who love the product are provided below:

  • This almond milk is very creamy which I like. The flavor is great, not too strong, not too much of almonds, just right. Works well in anything – coffee, cereal, with protein powder. 
  • I love Kirklands almond milk and use it in everything I can. It’s velvety consistently and flavor are great in hot chocolate, smoothies and making oatmeal or over cold cereal.
  • I love the convenience of not having to refrigerate the boxes until they’re opened. Flavor is subtle, not strong.
  • Tastes great, not too strong of a vanilla flavor.

Most of the 1 and 2 Star reviews complained about issues relating to poor customer service from Amazon such as receiving damaged or expired product and the high cost of buying on Amazon compared to the Costco warehouse price.

Users report that they love using the almond milk for:

  • Smoothies
  • Cereal
  • Oats

Is Kirkland Unsweetened Almond Milk Healthy?

A single serving of almond milk is one cup and has the following calories and nutritional information:

  • Calories: 30
  • Fat: 3g (4% DV)
  • Cholesterol: 0mg (0% DV)
  • Sodium: 110mg (5% DV)
  • Carbohydrates: 1g (4% DV)
  • Protein: 1g 

The drink also includes added vitamins (A, B2, B12, D2) and zinc.

The almond milk is relatively healthy in that it is low in calories, fat and cholesterol.  On the flip side, this stuff is basically pulverized almonds dispersed in some water so there really isn’t much of anything in there to actually provide meaningful nutrition.

This is a great beverage alternative for people who are allergic to dairy or want to have a vegan diet.

Overall the almond milk at Costco is a great value and you will be hard pressed to find a better price for an equivalent product.
