It’s the big question for macadamia latte lovers!
The creamy mouthfeel of macadamia milk is a great alternative to cow’s milk for people who don’t tolerate it well or prefer to follow a plant-based diet. Although making macadamia milk at home is a very simple process some prefer the convenience of a commercially made milk – or ‘mylk’.
Although some brands are sold in larger supermarkets, macadamia milk doesn’t seem to have as much shelf-space as other plant based milks, so we have prepared this guide to help you find the leading brands of macadamia milk next time you are looking for a creamy cup!
