Almond, Oat, Soy, Coconut, Hazelnut, Hemp, Rice, Pea, Cashew, Flax?
THERE ARE SO MANY dairy alternatives! What is the best?
Well, here are our top 4:
1. Oat Milk
Our fave - its creamy, its delicious, its amazing in coffee.
Taste: We love to use oat milk in our coffee as the fat content is far lower than Cow’s milk and therefore doesn’t mask the aromas and flavours of the coffee, whilst being high enough in fat to create the smooth and creamy texture that we all love.
Oat milk is also one of the more eco-friendly plant based milks
Health benefits: Slightly higher in sugar than other dairy alternatives, due to it being made from carbohydrate. Some are fortified with calcium or vitamins. Our favourite is Minor Figures!
2. Coconut Milk
Taste: This tropical plant milk packs a lot of flavor and is a great addition to coffee.
Health Benefits: pretty low in calories & it’s a good source of calcium and B & D vitamins
Taste: Classic Soy milk, its a great allrounder. Soy has a creamy texture, when steamed it is super foamy, which makes a great cappuccino.
Heath Benefits: High in protein, and low in sugars and fats. Many brands are also fortified with other vitamins too!
Sweet & flavourful
Taste: Almond milk is creamy & gives a gorgeous marzipan taste to coffee which compliments it beautifully.
Health Benefits: Low in calories but slightly higher in sugars. Naturally, Almonds contain vitamin E - which supports a healthy immune system!
