Cappuccino/mocha etc

Hi all, I am posing another question - I'm so new to Veganism but I'm sure I'll get there in the end.

I have been looking on the internet for a while now looking for sachets of cappuccino or mocha, I use the sachets for work, I'm fine at home as I have a coffee machine so can use nut milk. The kind of sachets I am looking for are like the Nescafe ones but for Vegans, have any of you found sachets of Vegan Cappuccino or Mocha? I have actually written to Nescafe and asked if they are planning any time in the future to bring out Vegan varieties of their sachets of coffee. You would have thought with the amount of Vegans now that there was more on the market, I know it's getting better but we certainly aren't quite there yet.

Thanking you all.

:)

Hi, I am not sure that you can buy Nescafé sachets or any other sachets as such but if you wanted to have a more instant way of making a vegan coffee with milk you can buy little pods of soya milk that you could add to black coffee or you could get regular instant coffee and add powdered soya milk so with one spoon you could have a coffee which has vegan milk. The problem I think you will find is that most companies add powdered cows milk, unfortunately. Cadbury’s drinking chocolate is vegan if you add vegan milk and mix with coffee not sure if that might get you your mocha. I hope you are doing okay with becoming vegan 🐖🐑🌱. Some things you have to make up your own vegan version of what you used to be able to easily buy but it’s worth making the switch. 🐄

Thank you for your reply Agoodenough , I really appreciate it. I have written to Nescafe as I think that this would be such a winner, surprised they haven't already produced a Vegan cappuccino.

I have been researching alot this afternoon on nut milks and other Vegan products and come to the conclusion that Cashew Nut Milk is the best, unfortunately I'd have to strain it as I don't have the blender everyone keeps mentioning, the name escapes me. I could use what's left though for the raw fruit bars I make.

I will keep on researching Vegan products.

Once again, thank you.

Hi Alicia, you don’t need a fancy blender at all and a nut bag is cheap and quick to use, I originally got mine from Lakeland and it’s good quality and would last a long time. Yes, the pulp will be great in those bars you make. It will be interesting if nescafe reply. I agree my favourite is cashew and it’s pretty good for most things as very versatile. I think it keeps for a couple of days in the fridge. When I make mine for cereal or porridge type things I add vanilla paste which is nice as well. You are welcome and good luck. Ali 🌱

Thank you Ali and that is reassuring, I'll have a look at Lakeland.

The raw fruit bars, which I have been making for months now, are delicious and they have weaned me totally off chocolate. The cacao powder gives an intense flavour.

I'll be sharing successful recipes on here.

Thank you

Roughly up until 20 years ago, I was into N stuff myself. I was probably even addicted to it. Then I read a few articles. I stopped buying their stuff. zmescience.com/science/nest...
