SACRAMENTO, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Blue Diamond, the world's leading almond marketer and processor, today announced its expansion into the non-dairy yogurt alternative category with Almond Breeze Almondmilk Yogurt Alternative. This new plant-based yogurt alternative is rich, creamy, and comes by itself or paired with unique Blue Diamond almond toppings. With this exciting portfolio expansion, Blue Diamond continues to drive the dairy-alternative market forward to new heights.
As consumer demand for dairy-free options continues to surge, Blue Diamond delivers with another high-quality option. This lush yogurt alternative is available on its own and with crunchy toppings, which are made from California-grown almonds and ingredients like granola or chocolate chips, providing exceptional taste and texture. Each variety is free from allergens, such as lactose and soy.
“Consumers are seeking more delicious plant-based foods. We believe our yogurt, made from Almond Breeze almondmilk, is the perfect way to satisfy the need for tasty plant-based options. We developed single-serve sidecar cups that pair the deliciously creamy Almond Breeze Almondmilk Yogurt Alternative with the crunchy goodness of Blue Diamond almonds and other toppings to bring innovation to the growing plant-based yogurt space. Dairy-free can be exciting, and that’s exactly what we’ve created here,” said Suzanne Hagener, Director of Brand Marketing for Blue Diamond.
