This World Milk Day We’re Shedding Light on Dairy Alternatives!

Today is World Milk Day and June being Dairy Month it’s extremely fitting to shed some light on dairy alternatives.

With plant milks now making up 15% of the total coffees consumed and almond milk growing in popularity, sourcing the very best plant milks enables Jamaica Blue to meet this growing demand.  Whether your lactose intolerant, vegan, environmentally friendly, trying something different or wanting to find a healthier alternative Jamaica Blue has an option to suit your needs.

Each plant milk variety has a unique taste and nutritional profile, meaning there’s a plant-based milk to suit all palates and dietary needs. For example, our oat milk is cholesterol and lactose free and contains 1.3g of beta-glucan per 250mL serve, which, as part of a balanced diet low in saturated fat and with 3g of beta-glucan per day, can help reduce cholesterol reabsorption, while the coconut, rice and almond milks are also gluten-free. So, there’s no need to miss out on your caffeine fix if you require dairy alternatives.

Why not embrace Dairy Month and ask your Jamaica Blue barista for your favourite plant milk in your next breakfast bowl or cup of our award-winning brew. Try our barista designed almond milk, our creamy coconut milk or our nutritious soy milk today!
