More and more people are waking up to the cruel reality of the dairy industry, not to mention lactose intolerance and the mucus build up it creates in our bodies causing inflammation, so the market for alternative non-dairy products is growing faster now than ever before.
1. Coconut Milk
Top of my list is Coconut milk... It's made by soaking the white flesh of coconuts in hot water. The cream rises to the top and is skimmed off, leaving the milk behind. Coconuts are highly nutritious, containing vitamins C, B1 and B6. The milk is high in saturated fat, though, so it’s best consumed in moderation, and it’s also one of the more expensive vegan milks. But despite being low in sugar, coconut milk is quite sweet-tasting, meaning it’s perfect for desserts, cakes and smoothies. It’s also an important ingredient in Caribbean soups, Thai and Indian curries.
2. Hemp Milk
The seeds of the hemp plant, a relative of cannabis but without the psychoactive chemicals, are one of the best vegan protein sources in the world, containing nine essential amino acids and omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids. Hemp milk has a sweet, nutty taste that works very well in tea. Milk.
3. Quinoa Milk (Last, but certainly not least)
The problem is that many plant foods are deficient in certain essential amino acids, such as lysine. However, quinoa is an exception to this, because it contains all the essential amino acids. For this reason, it is an excellent source of protein. It has both more and better protein than most grains. Quinoa works best in porridge's, and is a good addition when making vegan custard.
