FoodBlog Bytes: Cow Milk Alternatives You Need To Start Drinking Now 🥛

Love it or hate it, most of us have been drinking cow’s milk from a young age. We add it to our coffee, cereal, baked goods and plenty of other drinks and meals. Nowadays, however, consuming cow milk alternatives is gaining popularity due to increasing allergy, dietary and ethical concerns. 🐄

In this article, we’ll be mentioning a couple of alternatives to cow milk you've got to start drinking pronto. If there are a hundred reasons to switch to these alternative milks, your ultimate reason is for the taste. 👅

Almond Milk

What seems like the most popular cow milk alternative which happens to be my personal favourite too, is none other than 🥁🥁🥁 almond milk. It tastes like the last bit of milk at the bottom of the cereal bowl - mainly because it tastes quite sweet, but not too sweet that it tastes dessert-ish. Around 240ml (1 cup) of unsweetened almond milk contains 40 calories, 1g carbohydrates and 2g protein. 🌸

Coconut Milk

If you happen to enjoy using coconut oil and coconut milk in your cooking, you may want to consider drinking it as an alternative to cow milk. The taste of coconut milk is rich, sweet and almost floral. It tastes different to coconut oil. An estimated 240ml of unsweetened coconut milk contains 50 calories, 2g carbohydrates and 5g fat. 🥥

Soy Milk

Though many people around the world happen to be allergic to soy, this type of milk is well-liked because of its nutritional value. It contains almost as much protein as cow milk does while boasting fewer calories than regular milk. At 240ml, unsweetened soy milk contains 80 calories, 4g carbohydrates and 4g fats. It tastes quite similar to cow’s milk as it loses the nutty taste most milk alternatives have and is actually quite creamy. 💪

Cashew Milk

If you’re looking for a nutty, creamy and sweet flavour in the next milk alternative to try out, go for cashew milk. While it’s taste is quite similar to almond milk’s, there is a slight difference in texture and consistency. So if you don’t like almond milk but still want something a bit on the nutty side, go for cashew milk. At 240ml, unsweetened cashew milk contains around 160 calories, 5g of protein and 9g carbohydrates. 🌳

Oat Milk

Combining oats and oat milk will never allow you to make porridge or oatmeal bowls with cow’s milk ever again. Oat milk has a thick consistency and is less sweet than almond milk. It actually tastes quite like cow’s milk but well, more oaty. 240ml of oat milk contains 120 calories, 3g of protein and 5g of fat. 🌾

And if you want to get your milk alternative trails in full swing, why not pop in to Josephine’s at the Corinthia Palace for a great cup of Joe and a splash of your choice of plant-based milk. Grab a freshly baked good while you’re there too; they’re dairy free too! ✌️
