Milk cappuccino and caffé latte based on the classic espresso stimulant are some of the most popular coffees prepared according to the Italian recipe. They taste great in the morning in the company of a light breakfast, and in the afternoon with a sweet dessert. In cafes, where the baristas ensure that milk is perfectly frothed and original patterns float on its surface, it’s hard for us to refuse one of these caffeinated beverages. Similarly, when we have automatic coffee machines at home. Unfortunately, some of us do not tolerate milk, which must limit its consumption, and often completely eliminate them from the diet. What then? Is there any solution to be able to drink a cappuccino or a latte at least once in a while? Fortunately, just reach for one of the so-called plant milk.
Almond milk is a drink that is prepared from crushed almonds. Its great advantage is the taste and aroma – delicate, velvety, slightly sweet, nutty. Therefore, it goes well with coffee brewed on the basis of a composition of grains coming from traditional Italian smoking rooms. What’s more, almond milk is health! It has a lot of beneficial for the human body antioxidants in the form of vitamin E. Besides, due to low calorie (one serving is only 30kcal) and lack of saturated fatty acids, with a clear conscience can also reach for those who follow the diet for fat reduction.
Soy milk is probably the most popular replacement for cow’s milk. Nowadays, most of the good cafes have a latte or cappuccino in their menu with a drink prepared from soybeans. In stores, we find three types of milk: natural (unsweetened), sweetened and flavored (eg chocolate, vanilla). Importantly, they contain calcium, vitamin D and A, as well as riboflavin. It also contains about 8-10 grams of protein per serving (similar to cow’s milk). However, it is worth bearing in mind that the daily intake of soy and soy products should not exceed 50 grams.
