The popularity of plant-based milk has skyrocketed lately. Whether you're making the switch for health reasons, for sustainability purpose, or simply because you prefer the taste of them, there are plenty on the market to choose from. However, with their different flavour profiles, consistencies and nutritional values, it can be tough to find the right one for you at first.
In celebration of World Plant Milk Day, which falls on August 22 this year, here is a guide to some of the best plant-based milks and our favourite brands.
1. Oat milk
If you'd prefer a creamy and mild alternative to cow's milk, look no further than oat milk. It has a rich mouthfeel and does not separate, making it a superb addition to any cup of coffee or tea, or even a creamy pasta base.
In each 250ml cup of oat milk, there are about 3g of protein, almost double the equivalent amount of almond milk. Furthermore, a cup of oat milk also contains 2g of fibre and 350mg of calcium, which are both more than what you would get in a cup of cow's milk.
