I love almonds, but after drinking almond milk almost daily for a year, as well as eating raw almonds and using face products that contained almond oil, I noticed allergic reactions on my skin. It turns out that almonds and other tree nuts are some of the top offenders on the allergy chart. Luckily, I received two samples of Living Harvest Tempt Coconut Hemp Milk and found some new favorite milk as a replacement!

Though I haven’t been tested for a tree nut allergy, it seems I have a milld intolerance to almonds and walnuts in particular. The reaction isn’t so bad with cashews or hardly at all with coconuts. To be safe, I decided to say goodbye almond milk and opted for soy milk or rice milk instead.

There are several plant-based milk alternatives at the grocery store, both on the shelf and in the dairy fridge section. The Living Harvest brand is shelf-stable prior to opening, but then should be refrigerated and enjoyed shortly after opening. It tastes freshest during the first four days.

I drank both flavors as individual glasses of milk with a meal. I also used both of them in smoothies, coffee and ate them with granola. This milk is delicious. You’ll probably be very surprised if you’re not familiar with plant-based milks. This one has a pleasant taste. I loved drinking the original on its own, especially as a complement to my breakfast or snacks, and I liked using the unsweetened one in smoothies.

    I’m trying to not drink dairy milk so much and so I’ve been looking at alternatives. Most alternatives taste bland or have this jelly like consistency which I don’t like, but I tried the original hemp coconut and it is so delicious! And I find the consistency of it very milk like, not gelatinous like others. The best alternative to milk I’ve come across thus far. I also have tried unsweetened almond, and an unsweetened coconut milk ones but both were not very good. I don’t know if it’s because of the sugar factor, but I don’t believe so. I just think this hemp-coconut milk is spot on.

      After you open the package, it lasts for about a week to 10 days in the fridge. The product can be stored on a shelf before you open it; it doesn’t need to be refrigerated until you break the seal. I have never tried freezing this product, however you can definitely freeze plant-based milk and use it to make smoothies.
