Vegan milk options or dairy alternatives
Love and compassion are necessities, not luxuries. Without them, humanity cannot survive (Dalai Lama XIV).

Vegan milks options or dairy alternatives have been consumed for decades in various cultures, but their popularity has skyrocketed over the past decade. People choose plant milks over dairy milk for a variety of different reasons – their nutritional value, animal welfare reasons, lower environmental impact, to avoid lactose or dairy milk allergens.

Now there are plethora of options available to choose from, when it comes to Plant Milks, some of them are coconut milk, cashew milk, almond milk, peanut milk, soy milk, rice milk, oat milk, hemp milk, other nut and seed milks! We can easily buy almond milk online, soy milk online or also use homemade almond milk etc in our everyday meal!

As kids, many kids are forced to drink dairy milk considering it good for health and essential – the advertising behind it was solid and no-one questioned it back then due to lack of awareness. Thankfully, now people are aware and taking corrective steps to look after their health, environmental impact and animal life!

Vegan Milk Nutrition Overview

FAT

In general, vegan milk options or dairy alternatives have lower fat compared to whole cow’s milk. This plant fat is more digestible than animal fat. Thickness makes all the difference between plant milks.

CHOLESTEROL

Plant based milks do not have cholesterol since cholesterol comes from animal products/sources. This is a huge plus for anyone with cholesterol issues.

CALORIES/SUGAR/CARBOHYDRATES

Unsweetened versions of plant milks tend to have lower calories, sugars by default hence lower carbohydrates. another plus point! Allergens should be kept in mind though.

PROTEIN

We have noticed protein wise, cow’s milk seems to have more proteins. Since a plant based diet has many sources of easily digestible proteins, this shouldn’t be a concern.

Conclusion

We sincerely hope that this article gave you an insight into making your own plant based milks and also how to get started using them. Substitution for dairy milk is pretty much 1:1 ratio. Simply use any one of the multiple options you have or blend them together to make your own combination for your desserts. Plant milk are also referred by Vegan Milk, or Mylk to avoid confusion.

CAUTION: Try NOT to BOIL Plant Milks, warm them up and cook them slowly but boiling causes them to curdle at times.
