With a growing demand for dairy substitutes, lactose-free and plant-based milk is dominating the market like never before.
Dairy milk alternatives for lactose-intolerant people are becoming more accessible in Bangkok, especially when it comes to plant-based milk. In fact, more lactose-tolerant people are turning to this alternative due to the rise in awareness regarding the environment and its health benefits, too. Whilst several mainstream brands of lactose-free milk are readily available in the supermarket, a handful of small businesses in Bangkok are also offering their own renditions of plant-based milk. Here, we’ve curated a list where you can order in Bangkok. Whether you’re lactose-intolerant or not, some of these may soon become your pantry staple.

Drinking the cold-pressed sprouted almond and cashew milk blend from Seek Plant-based is equivalent to having more than 60 nuts in one go. We particularly like that they sweeten their flavours using healthy coconut nectar, and we highly recommend their young rice and roasted almond cold brew latte especially. As it turns out, coffee lovers can still enjoy milk, too.
