Ok, first things first, you need a milk that’s gunna be good in your cuppa. There’s no two ways about it, if you’re new to plant milk you’re probably going to have to try a lot of variations before you find the one that’s just right for you.
Here’s our top 5
We buy the organic one, it’s the same price. Make sure you give it a good shake before pouring it into your tea.
It’s very white in colour so looks like a ‘normal’ cup of tea when you pour it in. Has a very subtle coconut flavour, but not overpowering at all.
When we first tried this in a caffe latte we actually thought it was real milk! It’s so creamy and doesn’t taste like soya at all. It’s quite pricey to buy, but worth treating yourself when your out. Coffee shops sometimes add a few pence onto the normal price.
4. Roasted Almond
When we make a hot choc at home we like using roasted almond as it has a subtle sweetness that goes well with a comforting drink! We also like making our turmeric lattes with this milk too.
5. Make your own
Making your own nut milk is surprisingly easy! You just soak and process some nuts with water then blend and strain. The taste is really creamy and it’s probably got a lot more nutrients in it too. To be honest we don’t do it very often, as it’s so cheap and convenient to buy it in the shops. If you want to try some incredible homemade nut milk we’d recommend the 42 juice Almond Milk – it is absolutely dreamy! We drink that kind of milk straight from the bottle. We also absolutely loooove Katie's Nuttery milks - they are so delicious!
What milk we have in what drink –
Tea (English Breakfast) - We switch between Oatly and Koko.
Coffee (Barista made) - If the coffee shop use Bonsoy or Oatly we get a latte or flat white. If they don’t we go for Americano.
Hot choc (Made at home) - We like roasted almond. But any of them are delicious!
