What alternatives to milk do vegans drink?

What milk do vegans drink?

Regular milk comes from cows, making it an animal-based product. The vegan diet is one that contains no animal-based products at all, and as such, vegans often use plant-based alternatives to milk instead.

There are many reasons why people choose to be vegan. Whether it’s to do with health and wellbeing, or ethical and environmental considerations, the fact is that there are so many plant-based options to choose from when cooking, baking, eating and drinking whilst following a vegan diet.

Below we’ve compiled a handy guide to our plant-based drink, which you may find helpful if you’re thinking about exploring the vegan diet, or are already doing so.
