Years ago, I decided to give up dairy milk in an effort to reduce my dairy intake without giving up my beloved cheese. I tried soy milk and have been using almond milk pretty much ever since. I really only use it in my coffee, though.
That’s why I was so thrilled to come across Milkademia, a plant-based vegan option made from Macadamia nuts on a family farm in Australia. It’s non-GMO, gluten-free, dairy-free, soy-free, and has 50% more calcium that dairy milk. Not only do they offer unsweetened and vanilla milk (chilled or shelf stable); they offer coffee creamers and a latte that I have enjoyed immensely – particularly the fudge creamer made from macadamias and coconut cream. I’m thrilled to have found a much creamier option for my morning coffee.
“The production of animal products has been linked to higher rates of greenhouse gas emissions,” said Milkadamia CEO Jim Richards. “Switching to a plant-based diet is one of the easiest ways to make a change that’s good for your body and the planet.”
It doesn’t hurt that macadamia nuts have some great benefits like staving off heart disease, protecting the brain and possibly preventing weight gain – plus, FUDGE flavor!
Their line of products are creamy and I preferred the flavors to almond milk, so I’ve made the switch. (Plus, I am a sucker for a fun tagline, and “Too good to be moo” is too adorable. They can be found at some Kroger’s, Whole Foods and Fresh Thyme Farmer’s Market.
