Veganism is slowly gaining momentum in India, with several people switching over to participating in it. Being a new concept here, it is still a luxury that only some can indulge in, since it hasn’t yet reached the masses in full strength. With that, indulging in vegan milk is also considered a luxury only a few of tasted.
There are several types within vegan milk itself, and several brands that have rolled them out. Here are a few kinds of vegan milk along with brands we recommend. So, let’s get milkin:
We've all heard of coconut water, but have you ever thought coconut milk could exist? Already staple in several Southeast Asian dishes, it is a healthy alternative to general animal milk. One can enjoy coconut milk with their smoothie bowls, blended in their shakes, or even as it is, the creamy texture takes the bowl or shake up a notch.
Almond milk is just what the name suggests, made of almonds! A super healthy alternative to milk, almond milk is created by blending a lot of almonds with water, giving it the water texture, with the added flavours of your choice to make it similar to milk. It can easily replace your beverages that require milk like your coffee, tea, shakes, etc.
Cashew Nut Milk
Similar to almond milk, what makes cashew nut milk is cashew nuts, blended with a bunch of other ingredients like water, honey or maple syrup to give it a sweet taste, etc. Easy to recreate at home, cashew milk, like every other milk alternative, is a perfect substitute for animal milk in your food and beverages.
We now know that when you blend nuts with water, it can create a substitute for milk. Like the nuts mentioned, walnut can do the same, creating a delicious alternative to something that many can't digest. It's a beverage for all those who are health-conscious and looking to keep it in check.
A type of cereal grain, oats are typically enjoyed with milk, creating a wholesome meal. Now imagine using it to make an alternative to milk? Yes, that exists! Oat milk is a great alternative to enjoy with coffee, tea, or even your oats. It is creamy in texture and has a slight oat-like flavour to it, but with time it might just become your go-to milk alternative. This milk alternative is perfect even for those who are allergic to nuts.
