SACRAMENTO, CALIF. — Blue Diamond is branching into the non-dairy yogurt alternative category with the launch of Almond Breeze Almondmilk Yogurt Alternative. The plant-based product is available on its own or paired with crunchy toppings made from California-grown almonds.

The plain yogurt alternative is available in 24-oz tubs in original and vanilla varieties. It also comes in 5.3-oz single-serve containers that pair vanilla-flavored Almond Breeze Almondmilk Yogurt Alternative with various toppings, including toasted almonds; honey roasted almonds and granola; chocolate almonds and chocolate chips; coconut almonds and chocolate chips; blueberry almonds and oat clusters; and sea salt caramel and pretzel. All offerings are free from lactose and soy.

“Consumers are seeking more delicious plant-based foods,” said Suzanne Hagener, director of brand marketing for Blue Diamond. “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.”

The launch of Almond Breeze Almondmilk Yogurt Alternative follows other recent almondmilk innovation from Blue Diamond, such as Almond Breeze Almondmilk Blended with Real Bananas and Almond Breeze Almondmilk Creamer.

“Blue Diamond Almond Breeze continues to nourish customers with dairy-free options that are delicious and versatile,” the company said. “As consumer demand for dairy-free options continues to surge, Blue Diamond delivers with another high-quality option. With this exciting portfolio expansion, Blue Diamond continues to drive the dairy alternative market forward to new heights.”
