  • Lemon Orchard, a refreshing, calming blend of citrus, lavender, and mint.

Dairy Free Spotlight: Mooala Introduces Strawberry Bananamilk


Leading maker of premium, plant-based beverages launches industry's first strawberry flavored, dairy-free milk alternative available in the marketplace

DALLAS, Oct. 10, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Building on the success of its original, Organic Bananamilk variety, Mooala, a leading maker of premium, organic, dairy-free beverages, announced the introduction of Mooala Strawberry Bananamilk—the first strawberry flavored, dairy-free milk alternative in the marketplace today. Answering growing consumer need for tasty, plant-based options without added sugar, Mooala's new Strawberry Bananamilk hits the refrigerated aisle at select Whole Foods and Albertsons-Safeway stores beginning this month, with additional retailers slated to carry the new beverage in late 2018 or early 2019.

"People from all walks of life are embracing a plant-powered lifestyle, and we're also observing that traditional dairy drinkers' diets are shifting to incorporate more plant-based alternatives," comments Mooala Founder and CEO Jeff Richards. "Our latest innovation—Mooala Strawberry Bananamilk—features a blissfully sweet flavor profile that fuses real organic strawberries and bananas to give today's shoppers a delicious, but guilt-free, smoothie base or standalone treat packed with nutrition for growing families."

Crafted from real fruits and roasted sunflower seeds, the new Mooala Strawberry Bananamilk (MSRP $5.99) is USDA-certified Organic and offers an exciting new flavor to the marketplace that consumers may enjoy guilt-free. At just 70 calories per serving and no added sugar, this nut-free vegan beverage features about as much potassium as a small banana, while providing an excellent source of calcium and a good source of vitamin C in every serving. Mooala Strawberry Bananamilk is carrageenan- and gluten-free, and kosher, with no preservatives added.

Mooala Strawberry Bananamilk joins the company's full suite of organic beverages, including Original Almondmilk, Vanilla Bean Almondmilk, Original Bananamilk and Chocolate Bananamilk, to provide individuals with lactose intolerance, nut-free diets, or those simply looking to embrace a healthy lifestyle with a wide range of great-tasting options with uncompromised quality.

Launched in 2016, Mooala was inspired by Richards' own lactose intolerance and his inability to find a quality non-dairy alternative he wanted to drink. The popularity of its signature Bananamilk has skyrocketed in recent months, having being named one of the top food trends for 2018 by Whole Foods Market and industry leading tastemakers.

Mooala is available in over 1,500 retailers nationwide, including Whole Foods Market, Wegmans, ShopRite, Costco, Albertsons-Safeway, Giant, Stop & Shop and more.

About the company

We are a mother/ daughter team passionate about the next generation. I am Melissa and the one who does all the marketing so feel free to say hi on InstagramFacebook, or email! My mom Lynn is my business partner and sanity.

I don't have kids yet but I hope to soon. When I do I want them to have the best possible foods to eat. I love cooking but these days time doesn't allow for always having time to make food and grab and go foods are often not the healthiest.

Avocados and bananas are 2 of my favorite healthy foods but I find myself having to run to the store several times a week to get them because they get brown so fast. When my parents bought a home freeze dryer I became obsessed with the amazing possibilities! Quickly we decided this would be the perfect way to make long lasting healthy products for babies (and everyone else)

Thanks for the support!

New Look Reinforces Company’s Commitment to Transforming the World One Cereal Box at a Time

Richmond, BC, Canada (December 19, 2017)Nature’s Path, North America’s largest independent organic breakfast and snack food brand, is making it easier for consumers to find its great tasting, healthy products with the introduction of a bold and bright new look.

“We want our packaging to stand out and reflect how Nature’s Path is different from your standard, cereal and breakfast company,” says Arjan Stephens, executive vice president at Nature’s Path. “We’re different – we’re independent, family owned and from day one – over 32 years ago – always organic. We want this message to literally jump off the shelves.”

“Our new packaging is exciting, innovative and fun,” adds Stephens. Bold colors and clean designs “pop” on shelves, making it easier for consumers to spot their favorite products. The front-of-pack imagery focuses on the visual aesthetics of the food, and highlights the deliciousness of the product inside the package. The back-of-pack features improved product descriptions, tells the story of the company’s origin, and outlines the benefits of choosing Certified Organic and non-GMO.

For more than 32 years, Nature’s Path has been on a mission to educate, advocate and champion organic foods that are better for people and the planet. Throughout the years, the brand has built trust with consumers by being transparent about sourcing and sustainability. As such, the company is implementing a flow-through approach to rolling out the new packaging. Old packaging is replaced as items are sold and store shelves are restocked, resulting in a zero-write-off brand refresh, since product with old packaging will not go to waste. This is the most sustainable, environmentally friendly option, and supports the company’s mission of always leaving the Earth better than they found it.

As a part of the Nature’s Path brand refresh, the company’s EnviroKidz line is also receiving a redesign. The new EnviroKidz look features brighter, playful packaging and a more integrated logo, which all aligns with the new Nature’s Path packaging. Of course, EnviroKidz preserved the fan-favorite element on the box – the animals.

The kid-friendly and informative packaging highlights information about the animals, and how consumers support the conservation efforts when they choose EnviroKidz, while also providing parents with important nutrition information on an updated front-of-pack and nutrition panel.

New packaging is currently rolling out to store shelves nationwide.


About Nature’s Path

Nature’s Path Organic Foods, is a privately held, family-owned company, producing USDA Certified Organic and Non-GMO Project Verified breakfast and snack foods sold in grocery and natural food stores in over 50 countries around the world.

Supplement Spotlight: Dr. Axe Organic Bone Broth Collagen™ Capsules



Organic Bone Broth Collagen™ Capsules

  • Certified USDA Organic and Non-GMO
  • 3g Real, Whole Food Collagen Protein (fueled by real bone broth) per serving
  • Paleo Friendly, Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Soy Free, Grain Free, Nut Free


Health Benefits

  • Support for the Whole Body, Including Healthy Joint Function and Mobility, and Protection Against the Effects of Aging†
  • Now in a convenient, easy-to-swallow capsule form.

Organic Bone Broth Collagen is a powerful combination of cartilage-supportive ingredients and can:

  • Support healthy joint function and mobility†
  • Support collagen biosynthesis, a vital factor in maintaining healthy-looking skin†
  • Help protect against the effects of aging by protecting against free radical damage to cells†
  • Help the body cope with stress and promote a calming, relaxing state of mind†
  • Promote more restful sleep†



Organic Bone Broth Collagen is a ground-breaking collagen powder, derived from real, whole food, organic bone broth.


Organic Bone Broth Collagen provides powerful nutrients the body needs to thrive, including Type II collagen, which  is often missing in the diet. Overall, Organic Bone Broth Collagen supports joint health, gut health, skin health,  and healthy aging.†


Friendly for almost any diet or lifestyle, Organic Bone Broth Collagen is Certified USDA Organic, Non-GMO, Paleo friendly, dairy free, soy free, grain free, nut free, and gluten free. Plus, it’s loaded with highly-absorbable protein, and contains Type II  collagen from real food sources


Easily and smoothly mixes in protein shakes, smoothies, juices and more. You can enjoy a glass of gut-nourishing, joint supporting, bone broth-supplying COLLAGEN in less than 60 seconds (in a blender or smoothie).

And Organic Bone Broth Collagen comes at the perfect time, because the simple fact is that most people aren't getting enough collagen from their diet alone.



If you answered yes, congrats. And I mean that honestly.

Why? Because among work, family and a healthy social life, it can be nearly impossible to get enough nourishing collagen from your diet alone.

That’s one of the reasons I’ve been a huge fan of bone broth collagen for years. Not only are they nourishing, but they’re loaded with collagen, protein, and other vital nutrients.

But with all of these healthy benefits we know bone broth delivers, surprisingly very few people are consuming it.

The reason?

Homemade bone broth is:

  • expensive if you buy it pre-made. (It can cost more than $6 per serving.)
  • hard to make. (It can take up to two days to prepare one batch.)
  • something most people don’t know about.

Until now.

That’s why I’m thrilled to introduce a breakthrough in supplementation like none other—Organic Bone Broth Collagen.

It brings real organic bone broth AND collagen together in a convenient and easy-to-mix powder.
