Types of milk substitutes

Abstract background

Almond milk

A stronger flavour than oat milk, almond milk is mostly useful because it’s straightforward to make at home. It tastes great in cereal and shakes because of its naturally nutty taste.

Although almonds are healthy there seems to be a lot of negative fuss around almond milk because of the artificial ingredients used to bulk up the drink (and to save manufacturers using too many actual almonds).

Almond drinks tend to use thickening agents like carrageenan and guar gum, which can give them a somewhat unpleasant thick texture.

Coconut milk

Coconut milk has a very thick and creamy texture, which will help you form a quick opinion on whether you like it or not. Its thick texture means it’s more suited to desserts and cooking rather than drinks. It also has a stronger flavour than other substitutes so it will overpower any drinks (not good for tea or coffee).
