Understanding Your Milk Alternatives

With more than half of adults suffering when drinking Lactose, from feeling bloated, uncomfortable or getting skin reactions it’s important to understand the range of Milk alternatives out there so you can decide what’s best for you?



Coconut milk

The healthy fats  in Coconut Milk which gives this milk a rich, creamy texture, helping you feel satisfied longer than some of the non-fat options.

Almond milk

Almond milk is low in fat (no cholesterol or saturated fat to speak of), but its low protein content means it won’t keep you as sated as other options.

Hemp milk

Hemp milk has a higher level of omega-3 fat than the others, which makes it a great option for vegans looking for non-meat sources of this essential fatty acid.


Why we love ‘Plenish Nut Milks’

Even though there are many dairy-free options, most products have included low levels of nuts (as low as 1%!) and include fillers like rice, carrageen, emulsifiers and other artificial “stabilisers” but not 'Plenish Nut Milks' who boast a recipe with over 7% almonds!!!


Almond Milk is a natural source of Vitamin E, a powerful antioxidant (that means it protects your precious cells from oxidative stress) and protein, to maintain healthy muscles and bones. A 250ml glass of our almond milk is a natural source of copper, which is known to help your immune system operate optimally.

Almonds are also a natural source of heart-healthy monounsaturated fats (unlike cow’s milk which contains saturated fats). Replacing saturated fats for heart-healthy monounsaturated fats like those found in our almond milk, you can reduce blood cholesterol levels. With high cholesterol leading to heart disease, it’s even more compelling to make this simple switch!

Plenish supply us with a range of Nut Milks inclduing Coconut, Almond, Hazelnut & Cashew Nut Milk.
