What Makes Plant-Based Drinks So Great?

Choosing a plant-based diet is becoming more widely understood and accepted as a hugely beneficial lifestyle choice. With an array of health and environmental benefits, more and more people are choosing to incorporate vegan groceries and vegan drinks into their day-to-day habits. But why are vegan drinks so great? Let’s take a look!

Plant-based milks are one of the most popular vegan drinks and have seen a swift rise in popularity and the increase in demand means there are so many options available now. With both long-life and fresh options available, you’re sure to find one that suits your needs. Nuts, seeds, legumes, and grains offer a range of possibilities, and we can today enjoy specially formulated blends that incorporate the qualities of the different ingredients. Vegan drinks have endless possibilities! 

From deliciously creamy hemp milks, such as Good Hemp - Creamy Hemp Seed Drink, to expertly crafted barista-blends like this Minor Figures Barista Oat Milk, there are plant-based milks perfect for your coffees, smoothies, pancakes and beyond. These vegan drinks are also the ideal alternative for those with lactose intolerances!

While vegan milks are the most sought after plant-based beverages, interest in other vegan drinks, such as beers, wines, milkshakes, and drinkable yoghurts are increasing too. At PlantX we offer a range of vegan drinks, including naturally vegan options such as teas, coffees, juices, and even plant-powered energy drinks!

Frequently Asked Questions

Do you have plant-based milk that is also gluten-free?

Absolutely! Most vegan drinks are naturally gluten-free, but some plant milks contain gluten. Milks made from grains, nuts, legumes, and seeds will likely be free from gluten. However, oat milk may not be the best choice. Oats are commonly contaminated with gluten on a farm or factory level. Always check your oat milk is certified gluten-free, such as the organic offerings from Plenish. Want to avoid oats altogether? Try Good Hemp - Creamy Hemp Seed Drink!

Do you sell any caffeine-free vegan drinks?

Oh yes, we’ve got you covered! If you’re looking for options that won’t keep you up all night, there are a whole host of options available to you. The potential benefits of avoiding caffeine include lowered anxiety levels, better sleep, and even improved absorption of micronutrients, there are numerous reasons for switching out your caffeine-loaded drinks for one of the many options available at PlantX. 

Dandelion Coffee or this Organic Chicory Drink are naturally caffeine-free substitutes that will help you kick that coffee habit! For more delicious options, check our Coffee Alternatives section to treat yourself to drinks with all of the coffee flavour, but none of the caffeine. 

Are all teas vegan?

Surprisingly, no! Some teas will have added ingredients that make them unsuitable for vegans. These ingredients include dairy products (think Chai powder), honey, and certain natural flavourings. In some cases, even the packaging can be considered non-vegan. Of course, all of the teas we have waiting for you are 100% vegan.

What are the benefits of concentrated juice shots?

Also known as wellness shots, these small bottles contain different combinations of juices, herbs, and spices which are believed to fight inflammation, boost your immune system, assist with weight loss, and improve your overall well being. For example, turmeric is a known well-being booster and this is a core ingredient in the nutrition packed Plenish - Turmeric Defence Shot. It’s a super small but super nutritious vegan drink! 

Which plant-based milks are highest in protein?

When following a vegan diet, it is important to ensure you are consuming high enough levels of protein. However, that is not to say that plant-based diets lead to protein deficiencies! As long as you’re conscious of what staples foods to include in your diet (hello chickpeas & beans!) it is not at all hard to consume enough protein. Vegan drinks can be a great way!

An easy way to increase your intake is to choose a plant milk that contains higher levels of protein. Oat, cashew, hemp, almond, and pea milks are all fantastic options for this. With a whopping 4g per glass, this Pea Protein Milk by Sproud is the perfect place to start.
