So Good Chocolate Almond Milk Review – Mishry
A plant-based chocolate shake? The So Good Chocolate Almond Milk is a dark chocolate lover’s delight!
Lately, we have seen an ever-increasing demand for plant-based milk. As more and more people become conscious of what they consume or are turning vegan, plant-based milk has become the top choice for consumption.
If lactose isn’t your friend, plant-based milk is the way to go. Typically, the most common plant-based milk options include soy milk, oat milk, nut milk like cashew milk, coconut milk, almond milk, etc.
However, soaking and blending the nuts until a smooth consistency is achieved can be somewhat challenging. This is where ready-to-drink nut milk saves the day! And since chocolate inevitably makes everything better, here is our So Good Chocolate Almond Milk review.
For this So Good Almond Milk review, we ordered the single-serve tetra pack online.
Let’s find what all the hype is about!
The brand So Good believes living well and eating healthy doesn’t mean cutting down on the food and beverages you enjoy. And we second this!

On the other hand, unlike a regular chocolate milkshake, So Good Chocolate Almond Milk is not as milky in taste or consistency.
