Which plant-based milk is best for you?

Plant-based milks are a great alternative to dairy milk, whether it’s for intolerance reasons or simply because you want to avoid consuming dairy and are looking for a substitute that is rich in vitamins and minerals to fill the gap.

Each plant-based milk is made up of a different nut/seed/grain/legumes, therefore, the benefits it provides are different. That’s why it’s interesting to see which one is best for each individual’s nutritional needs.

It’s important to note that most plant-based milks you buy at the supermarket have a very low percentage of the ingredient it’s made of (say almonds, oats, soy beans, etc), and instead contains a lot of sugar and other additives.

The best alternative is to look at the ingredients the milk contains and getting one that is as clean as possible. Another option is to make the homemade version. It’s super easy to make and it’s much more nutritious!
