The milk comes in three variants. A perfectly balanced and creamy barista blend that lets your favourite coffee beans shine. Chocolate with double the amount of cacao and less sugar. And chocolate hazelnut, which needs no introduction. As Asia’s first ‘full-stack’ oat milk brand, the company has full control over the production process in Bandung, Indonesia.

5. The Mlk Co: Almond milk
This almond milk is as fresh as they come. The 100% raw, vegan, gluten- and pesticides-free brand skips the pasteurisation process so live enzymes and nutrients are retained in the creamy formula. How creamy, you ask? The Mlk Co uses at least 25% more raw activated almonds compared to other brands, plus Himalayan rock salt and ionised water. The plant-based milk comes in unsweetened, macadamia, matcha, cacao, hojicha flavours and more encased in toxic-free and recyclable glass bottles.

6. Rude Health: Almond oat, brown rice milk
This London-based innovative brand is a play on the saying ‘rude health’, which means to be strong and healthy. It has a pantry’s worth of healthy alternatives such as muesli, cereal, and crackers, including a large variety of dairy free drinks. Interesting ingredients are used to pile on the flavour so there’s no need for thickeners, syrups and added sugars. Its almond drink is blended with crushed almonds, rice, pure mountain spring water and cold-pressed sunflower oil. A touch of sea salt and sunflower oil is added to organic oats and spring water for bold flavours. Keen to try more? Select your pick from coconut, oat, and soya milk options.
