Milk on the menu:
- Milk: Full / Light - No neglecting the OG, milk has long been associated with healthy bones. This is due to its powerful combination of nutrients, including calcium, phosphorus, potassium and protein.
- Soy: One of the first to market dairy alternatives, soy milk is a good source of protein, calcium, and potassium.
- Macadamia: Richer and creamier than other nut based milks due to the high natural fat content. Higher in calcium and vitamin E compared to other dairy-free choices.
- Oat: Free of many allergens found in other types of milk. Plus, it contains beta-glucans a form of soluble dietary fiber.
- Coconut: From the white flesh of mature brown coconuts, the milk has a thick consistency and a rich, creamy texture. It is high in natural fats and calcium.
- Almond: Creamy texture similar to regular milk, low in calories, high in vitamin E with a nutty flavour.
- Lactose free: What does this mean? Lactose is a type of sugar found in milk products. If a product is labelled lactose-free, that does not mean it is necessarily dairy-free.
- Rice: Recommended for its allergy-friendly benefits it is one of the higher calorie plant-based milks with it's sweeter flavour.
