Taste the Future with Ripple Foods – It’s Delicious!

If you’ve been to a grocery store in the last several years, you know that when it comes to milk, there’s a TON of options. However, you may or may not have heard of the latest (and potentially greatest) option to hit shelves – pea milk…yes, milk made from peas.

Our friends and partners for our 8th Annual Story Time Celebration at Ripple Foods have worked tirelessly to bring together the best of all the milk worlds – nutrition, eco- friendliness, and, most importantly, taste – into one amazing product! Does pea milk sound a little pea-culiar?

………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..

Consider: Ripple takes 93% less water to produce than dairy milk and 85% less than almond milk. Made from the nutrient rich pea protein, it has 8 grams of protein and is high in calcium and vitamin D.

Ripple‘s milk comes in 4 delicious flavors to choose from: Original, Vanilla, Chocolate (our personal favorite), and Original Unsweetened.

Founded by Neil Renninger and Adam Lowry (who also created environmentally-minded cleaning supply company Method), Ripple has succeeded in developing a milk that everyone can enjoy. Marching proudly to the beat of its own drummer, Ripple is nut, gluten, & lactose free and is 100% vegan!
