NotCo Not Milk review

I tried the NotCo NotMilk today for the first time! It is pretty rare these days that a new vegan item really catches my attention but this just seemed so different from other vegan milks on the shelves so I was very curious to try it. Vegan whole milk sounds so appetizing for some reason, doesn’t it? I haven’t had milk since I was maybe 11 so of course I can’t clearly remember what it tastes like, but I’ll give you a full scope of my experience with this innovative NotCo Not Milk product via my not milk review.

“Whole” Not Milk Review

I got the “Whole” NotCo NotMilk from Whole Foods, which is currently priced at $4.99. They also have 2% Not Milk. On opening it I was intrigued by its milk-like slightly off-white color and lightly milky sweet scent. The first sip was surprising because it doesn’t taste like other non-dairy milks at all — it is totally unique. It really fills the mouth with exactly what I remember milk tasting like, but with a sweet undertone and after taste rather than a sour one.

It’s also surprisingly refreshing. I don’t really think to down oat or almond milk when I’m thirsty, but this has that super satisfying milk drink finish going on. I don’t know if you remember that feeling of drinking milk when you’re thirsty and the satisfaction that brings, but this brought that same satisfaction that I didn’t even remember until I sipped this. It really fills the mouth and quenches thirst.

Not Milk Review from a Milk Drinker

Quote from my hubby who DOES drink real milk. “Milk is my favorite drink and this is delicious. Really good. It feels like milk so if you like that milk taste and drinking milk, you will definitely like this.” So there. You heard it from the horse’s mouth that NotMilk is indeed reminiscent of real milk. (I’m not sure what that horse expression even means really, but I think I used it correctly).

NotMilk Review Conclusion

The taste of Not Milk is delicious and even a milk-lover in my home tried and loved it as well, saying it tastes a lot like real milk. Though I really enjoyed it, I am not sure how I feel about all the ingredients. I prefer my milks to be just a few whole ingredients. However, if I’m ever really in the mood for a milky drink, or if I’m having non-vegans staying over my house, I would definitely get this again. Probably a three times a year kind of purchase for me, with oat and almond remaining as my main staples. For hardcore milk lovers though, this is a must-try.
