There’s a new way to savor break time, whether it’s morning, midafternoon, or night. Introducing Nutchello™: a deliciously smart beverage from Silk® that contains 90 calories or less per serving.
Nutchello’s distinctive blends of nut flavors provide a deliciously satisfying taste experience. Three flavors are now available:
- Caramel Almond Cashew provides luscious notes of caramel blended with toasted almonds and creamy cashews.
- Dark Chocolate Walnut offers a combination of decadent dark chocolate paired with the taste of roasted walnuts.
- Toasted Coconut Cashew provides a lightly sweet taste of toasted coconut combined with the creaminess of cashews.
To celebrate the launch, Silk is partnering with culinary tastemaker and best-selling author Katie Lee to create cocktail to craft six cocktail recipes using Nutchello for those seeking a delicious after work pick-me-up. Katie Lee will officially unveil the cocktails with Nutchello at the Food Network & Cooking Channel South Beach Wine & Food Festival presented by FOOD & WINE on Saturday, February 27, 2016 at the Goya Foods Grand Tasting Village featuring MasterCard Grand Tasting Tents & KitchenAid® Culinary Demonstrations. Nutchello will be at the festival all weekend, offering attendees a first taste of the new Nutchello beverage.
And because it’s from Silk, Nutchello is free of dairy, artificial flavors or colors, and high-fructose corn syrup.
Nutchello will be available at grocery stores nationwide in early 2016 for a suggested retail price of $4.49. Find Nutchello in the refrigerated aisle near other Silk products, which include Almondmilk, Cashewmilk, Coconutmilk, Soymilk, dairy-free creamers and yogurt alternatives.

Sandra Postel, of National Geographic’s Freshwater Initiative, recently shared an article on the Change the Course initiative to restore billions of gallons of water to depleted rivers and wetlands (of which the National Geographic Society is a founding partner). The article notes that water security depends on two things: consuming less water by using and managing it more wisely, and restoring flows to depleted rivers and freshwater ecosystems. Change the Course is a national freshwater restoration campaign led by Bonneville Environmental Foundation, National Geographic and Participant Media focused initially on the Colorado River Basin. As of March 2015, the campaign has engaged myriad companies, universities and professional sports teams as sponsors and campaign partners. It has also inspired more than 170,000 individuals and 22 companies around the world to make the free pledge to conserve water, effectively restoring more than 100 million gallons of water to the Colorado River Basin.
WhiteWave is proud to be a charter sponsor of Change the Course and continue to fund the organization’s restoration projects. We work with our business partners and supply chains to reduce corporate water footprints and raise awareness about our freshwater challenges. To learn more about Change the Course click here.
