It could be time to retire the almond milk, guys – because a fresh plant-based drink is on the scene.
Say 'hello' to: tiger nut milk. Produced with a base of the little tubers – which are not actually nuts, despite the name – it's a variation on various liquids made from them which have been drunk since 4,000BC.
Grown by the Nile, they are said to be high in magnesium and antioxidants. The name comes from the nuts' signature little stripes.
Rude Health are the people bringing it to the shops, where it will retail at £2.50. Recipe-wise, one carton contains 6 per cent organic Spanish tiger nuts, plus spring water, organic rice and sea salt.
ENTER BRAND NEW Tiger Nut Drink. No, we didn't castrate the frosties mascot. Tiger nuts aren't actually nuts, and have nothing to do with tigers. They grow underground and are stripy in a tiger-print kind of way, which make them the most glamorous tuber in our book. This drink made from Organic Tiger Nuts, Spring Water, Organic Rice and Sea Salt is now available from @waitrose stores. Coming soon to @ocadouk and Rude Health online. Go get it tiger. #TheDrinkThatRoars.
Apparently 'creamy with a hint of sweetness,' it sounds like a decent sub for your morning porridge.
Exciting times ahead for the magical world of dairy-free, guys.
Rude Health's Tiger Nut Milk is available at Waitrose and on the company's own website.
