Elmhurst is a popular plant-based dairy alternative brand with an interesting history and wide variety of products. The brand had been making milk since 1925 and were one of the biggest dairy producers in New York City until 2017 when they rebranded as a completely plant-based brand. Since then, they’ve launched nut milks, rice milk, oat milk, hemp creamers, and more. And they only continue expanding. Their newest products include dairy-free lattes and smoothie bases.
The superfood smoothie bases come in three flavors: Kale, Cacao, and Turmeric Ginger. They have no added sugar and each base has its functional health benefits: “Kale is made with oat and hemp milk and contains Omega-3s; Cacao features hazelnut and almond milks and includes 50 mg of caffeine and is keto friendly; and Turmeric Ginger uses oat and hemp milk and contains 16 mg of curcumin for anti-inflammatory benefits.”
The dairy-free lattes are available in two kinds of varieties: coffee or tea. The two coffee flavors include Flash Brew and Cacao and the two tea flavors are Matcha and Golden Milk.
Elmhurst products are currently found in Whole Foods Market, Wegmans, Bristol Farms, Gelson’s, Publix, Fairway and Shaws stores, so you can look for these new products there soon.
