Australian almond milk brand Almo has introduced Almo Crème, a jar of liquid almond cream, to the market. It uses 100 per cent Australian almonds and when blended with water, produces instant and fresh almond milk.

With more than 200 almonds in every jar, Almo Crème can make up to five litres of almond milk, and can also be used as a spread, topping, and in vegan or dairy-free baking.

Almo was designed as a faster, simpler, cheaper and more sustainable way of making almond milk at home and is made from 100 per cent, pesticide-free Australian almonds that have been lightly blanched and churned into the cream.

“At Almo, we focus on simplicity. Our clean ingredients, labels and local manufacturing processes are a true representation of what we stand for as a brand,” said Almo founder Linda Monique.

“For us it’s about health over profit, environment over profit and quality over profit. We believe that products can be functional, delicious and sustainable, while also packing a nutritious punch.

Almo Crème forms the base of the unsweetened Almo Milk and is vegan, gluten and dairy free, high in protein and vitamin E, and has no added sugar or salt.

It has a 12-month shelf life and has an RRP of $15.00.
