Celebrating Plant Milks This Month

August is Plant Milk Month

22nd August is International Plant Milk Day and here at the Vegan Society, we are celebrating the fabulous array of plant milks every day of August!

There are a range of health benefits in making the switch to dairy-free, the waterways will benefit, your carbon footprint will be lower, your cholesterol levels will reduce, you will be kinder to animals and there’s a range of great tastes to be discovered! More people are trying oat milk, making their own, and there are more Kiwi companies producing it too. it’s an ideal option to replace dairy, both in planting, as oats grow easily in the New Zealand climate and in consumption. It’s so creamy that many people end up preferring it.

Not sure which is the best dairy-free option? Head over to our Dairy Free Awards and check out the winners, you can see which is the best cheese by taking a look at our Cheese Awards. We love giving these awards to show excellence in the plant-based industry. This is a growing area and will continue to increase in popularity, with more delicious products coming onto the market. Kiwi entrepreneurs are getting great results with these plant-based alternatives and if you haven’t tried them yet, now is the time to do so!

To discover the range of dairy-free options head over to our Vegan Alternatives page and see for yourself. There’s so much tastiness to be eaten. 🙂

This month we are also issuing a Dairy Free Challenge to all Kiwis. You will receive inspirational daily emails to guide you through the different dairy-free options, offer recipes and information on what and where to buy. Maybe you can persuade a family member or friend to try it with you? Just a week to see how easy it can be, how delicious the dairy-free alternatives are, and find out that you love plant-based cheese 🙂

Keep checking our social media accounts for this month’s giveaways. You got to be in it, to win it 😊
