Almond milk

Nutty but delicate

Great to use in smoothies and sweeter baking recipes. Fabulous addition to porridge and will usually last longer in the fridge than many milks. Almond milk isn’t the best fit for hot drinks as it is liable to split in coffee and can be overwhelming when used in tea (unless the tea has nutty, chocolate notes).

Coconut milk

The sweet tooth‘s all-rounder

Coconut milk is beautiful in coffees, smoothies, in porridge, and any sweet recipes such as yoghurt and ice cream. It’s not suitable for most savoury dishes though (with the exception of curries) because the coconut flavour is likely to be too prominent.

Soya milk

The O.G. of plant milks

Unsweetened soya milk is best used in savoury cooking and baking because it can be a great creamy base for sauces and curdles well for use in baking mixes. Soya milk is also perfect for any amateur yoghurt makers out there. Not ideal in coffee or tea, as most brands are prone to splitting or curdling; however, barista blends reduce the likelihood of this.
