Ripple Pea Milk Review – Chocolate Flavor. How Does It Taste?

I had seen Ripple milk in stores for a while as a new alternative to regular milk but had been putting off trying it out. I am familiar with soy milk and almond milk but I had yet to try Ripple. Today I saw them available in single serve bottles so I decided to give them a try.

I had previously watched some reviews of Ripple milk on Youtube and I remember the reviews being just ok which is why I did not rush out to buy it. But since the single serve option was only a couple bucks, I figured I would try it out.

The main thing that makes Ripple different is that is uses pea protein. The other ingredients are common such as water, sugar, and sunflower oil. As far as nutrition, a 12oz bottle has 230 calories, 12g of protein, and 25 g of sugar.

So how does it taste? Surprisingly good! I would describe the taste as something similar to a low fat chocolate milk with a little bit of a malt flavor. It is very easy to drink and does not have any weird flavors or aftertaste. Usually I am not a big fan of peas, but this does not taste at all like peas so it is ok.

Overall I was pleased with the taste and the nutrition is pretty good too. I would buy it again if I can find it on sale. It is a little more expensive compared to similar alternatives so the higher price would be the only thing holding me back from purchasing it.

I will probably try out some of the other Ripple flavors as well to see if they are as good as the chocolate. If you are looking for a new milk alternative or just a new beverage to try out, I recommend checking out Ripple milk.
