6 dairy milk alternatives you might not have heard of

6 dairy milk alternatives you might not have heard of

You don't need to go far today to find some kind of plant-based milk. Every day, new dairy alternatives are popping up on the shelves. 

6 dairy milk alternatives you might not have heard of

We round up all the latest delicious and nutritious dairy milk alternatives.

Pea milk

Pea milk is made from yellow peas that are processed into a yellowish powder called pea isolate. It is mixed with water and emulsifiers to create the ‘milk’.

Pea milk offers about 8g of protein per serve and most are fortified with vitamins and minerals and are dairy-, soy-, nut- and gluten-free.

Hemp milk

Hemp milk is quite a solid choice from a nutritional perspective. It’s made by blending hulled hemp seeds with water and contains essential nutrients and good amounts of protein.

The flavour is very nutty compared with other often sweeter-tasting planted-based milk alternatives.

Sesame milk

Allergic to nuts and avoiding dairy? Check with your doctor but sesame milk may be a solution. It has a toasted, yet slightly nutty flavour – even though it’s not a nut.

It is generally made with white sesame seeds, and you can use it in most baked goods that call for another kind of milk.

Flax milk

Cold-pressed flax oil is mixed with filtered water to make this low-calorie, low-fat milk. It can also be made by blending flax seeds with water on high speed.

It contains neither cholesterol nor lactose, making it a heart-healthy alternative. It can be used in most recipes that need dairy milk.

Rice milk

Made by blending rice with water, this milk is often lower in calories than other alternatives and is the least allergenic, which means it can be a good choice for people with lactose intolerance or allergies to milk, soy, or nuts.

However, rice milk is naturally sweeter than other milk alternatives.

Buckwheat milk

Despite the name, buckwheat milk is not a grain, rather a seed. High in protein and fibre, it has a slight grassy flavour and goes great in smoothies, oatmeal and baking.
