Dairy Free. As it Should Be.
A good source of protein, lower in sugar and absolutely delicious.

We are Ripple.
We are built on the truth that even the smallest actions can have far reaching impacts.

We are convinced the beat of a butterfly wing can produce a wave of change and we love to flap our wings!

We see a world where everything is connected. That’s why we’re inspired not by grand plans or heroic gestures, but by simple choices each of us will make everyday. Like what’s for breakfast.

We don’t claim that making plant-based foods will save the world...but we think it can help. And we know it makes us happier and healthier.

We believe it’s the simple things that mean the most. We floss. We recycle. We take the stairs. And we tell our loved ones that we love them. Because the little things add up.

When it comes to our food, we reject sacrifice. Tasty & good for you? Nutritious and creamy deliciousness? NOT mutually exclusive.

We are as playfully ambitious and bashfully confident now as we were when we were toddlers.

Fitting in is for sardines.

We strive to be healthy so we can get the most out of each breath. Life is about the journey, so let’s make the most of it!

We know we are what we eat and you eat what’s on the planet, so it’s in all of our best interest to keep this planet healthy.

We’re the kind of people who’ve figured out that nourishing the body is the first step to nourishing the soul. So...

 
 

Let's have our milk and drink it, too!

Our Promise

Ripple exists to make dairy-free as it should be: high in protein, low in sugar, loaded with nutrition and delicious.

We think good food should be simple. And for food to be good, we think it needs to taste great, nourish your body and leave a small footprint on the planet. When we make the right choice as easy as pouring a delicious glass of Ripple milk, we empower more people to eat and live well.

Americans are overfed and undernourished. A third of our kids are overweight or obese. 70% of them are Vitamin D deficient and 60% don’t get enough calcium. The stats aren’t much better for us, their parents.

Combatting this health crisis requires highly nutritious foods that are delicious enough to appeal to everyone, not just the greenies or the health gurus.

That’s where Ripple comes in. Ripple has 8x the protein of almond milk and half the sugar of dairy milk. It’s high in bioavailable calcium (50% more than milk), potassium and provides a good source of omega-3s. It’s lower in calories than milk and best of all, it has the creamy, delicious texture our dairy-free friends are missing. No more thin, chalky almond/ soy/ cashew milk.

It’s dairy-free
for everyone.
Just as it should be.

Finally, we believe in running our business the right way. Ripple is a registered and certified Benefit Corporation. We use only natural ingredients and our bottles are made of only 100% post-consumer recycled plastic that is 100% recyclable.

Our History

Neil and Adam are committed to making a difference. Adam created Method to bring the world sustainable, beautiful cleaning products. Before trading in his lab coat to start Ripple, Neil helped develop a production process for an anti-malarial compound that is now used to make more than 100 million treatments a year. Together, these two innovative scientists created a revolutionary (and delicious) plant-based milk: Ripple.
