One of Organic Avenue's most popular offerings is our signature Mylks. No, that's not a misspelling -- it's Mylk, with a Y! It's the word founder Denise Mari created to specify all non-animal milk. The best way to describe these unique beverages to the uninitiated is that they are kind of like a smoothie -- thick and blended, sweet and creamy. The big difference is that they are raw, nut-based and completely dairy-free, which is great news for those with lactose intolerance or folks who want to avoid dairy for ethical reasons (animal rights group Mercy for Animals reports that the vast majority of dairy cows live their lives under cruel and abusive conditions).
OA Mylks are pure, plant-based and made in-house. They contain zero preservatives and only five ingredients or less, depending on the flavor.
Cashew Hemp -- Cashews, hemp seeds, dates, chia seeds, Himalayan salt
Vanilla Almond -- Almonds, dates, vanilla bean, virgin coconut oil Himalayan salt
Coconut -- Coconut water and coconut meat
Trust us when we say that with one sip, you will taste the difference between OA Mylks and other similar beverages. We spare no expense in the quality organic ingredients that we use nor the time it takes to produce them. Not only do they taste amazing straight our of the bottle, they also make a fantastic base for a bowl of cereal, homemade shake, and blended drink. At Organic Avenue, we use our Mylks in all smoothies, bowls, and lattes.
