I know what you’re thinking - a whole article just on almond milk?

You know what they say - the devil is in the details. I sure wish I knew those details when I needed a dairy-free option and thought Dutch Bros only had soy milk.

I'll serve the facts behind Dutch Bros' almond milk so you can avoid my faux pas next time you need dairy-free alternatives in your latte.

Let’s get started!

  • Dutch Bros does offer almond milk at a slight additional cost
  • The specific brand of almond milk is Blue Diamond Unsweetened Vanilla
  • Their almond milk does not have added sugar or dairy

Is Almond Milk Available At Dutch Bros?

Dutch Bros does carry almond milk to craft all the delicious dairy-free Dutch Bros drinks we know and love.[1]

This makes it easy for vegans and anyone who is lactose intolerant to still enjoy the taste and sweetness of any tea or lattes without the dairy.

Other milk alternative options at the famous coffee chain include soy, coconut, and oat milk.

These plant-based milks are available at a slight additional cost alongside their dairy milk options like cow’s milk and breve.

What Almond Milk Does Dutch Bros Use?

The almond milk at Dutch Bros coffee shops is the Blue Diamond Unsweetened Vanilla version.[2]

This creamy almond milk provides all the great taste and protein without the added sugars.

The slight sweetness comes from the hint of vanilla in the milk itself, which is there to enhance the flavor of your vegan cold brew.

The Blue Diamond almond milk has a creamy nutty flavor that has no saturated fat, no cholesterol, and is low carb - an excellent choice for customers watching their health or daily nutrients.

Does Dutch Bros Almond Milk Have Sugar?

The almond milk at Dutch Bros does not have any added sugar or dairy, which is great because we all want to drink healthier and sometimes swap sugars for natural flavors.

Not only that, but almond milk typically has fewer calories per cup. This makes almond milk perfect for any healthy diet or those allergic to lactose.

Swap a standard syrup with Dutch Bros sugar-free ones to ensure you stick to a healthy dietary sugar level.

I highly recommend giving almond milk a try if you are someone with a lactose intolerance or a desire to opt out of high-fat or calorie ingredients in your iced coffees.

If you are allergic to nuts that are not almonds, you should check with your broista if you can have almond milk in your beverage.
