How to use Sproud Original pea milk substitute
While our original pea protein milk alternative tastes delicious chilled on its own, you can also use it in most ways you might use cow’s milk.
Put it in your coffee or tea. Whip together a fruity smoothie or an indulgent milkshake. Add creamy texture to stews, curries and other hot mains. Or use Sproud Original in tempting desserts and baking recipes.
Sproud can be enjoyed hot or cold with flavour, texture and colour similar to cow’s milk.
What does Sproud Original taste like?
Our pea protein alternative is more similar to cow’s milk than most other vegan options. Smooth and creamy with neutral flavour, it tastes great on its own and puts the cherry on top of any dish you use it in.
Served hot or cold, it is an easy swap for regular semi skimmed milk from cows. You really cannot taste the peas in the milk alternative at all, they are only there to provide great nutrition.
Natural pea protein milk option
From a nutrition standpoint, our pea milk option is in many ways a better alternative than other vegan options. Sproud Original has relatively high protein content, and peas are a complete protein source. This means that milk from peas contains 9 essential amino acids that the human body needs to function well.
Sproud Original Pea Milk is also a relatively low-carb option, containing less sugar than semi-skimmed cow’s milk. The mostly unsaturated fat in Sproud comes from canola and gluten-free oat oil.
By drinking yellow pea milk you will also get some important vitamins and minerals. For example calcium, riboflavin, vitamin B12 and vitamin D.
Got allergies? Sproud Original Pea Milk contains no lactose, dairy, gluten or soy.
Yellow split pea milk alternative – good for you and the environment
Sproud is an environmentally sustainable choice in factors like water consumption and use of land. Both compared to cow’s milk and other plant-based options.
The yellow split peas used in our milk alternative require 25 times less water to produce than cow’s milk. And 10 times less water and land compared to almonds, soy and oats.
But we did not settle for these environmental benefits of milk made from peas – we wanted to go above and beyond to make Sproud a great eco-friendly alternative. Sustainable packaging from Tetra Pak is easy to recycle and made from mostly renewable materials.
Unopened packs of Sproud drinks have a 365 day shelf life, without need for refrigeration. This reduces food waste and lets us transport the drinks at room temperature.
Enjoy a locally sourced non-dairy drink
Our milk alternatives distributed in North America are made from Canadian-grown peas in our factory in Toronto, Canada. Sproud for Europe is produced in Sweden with peas from France. Keeping production and cultivation more local cuts down on transports, making our process a little eco-friendlier.
Oh, and our production process does not use any harmful chemical solvents. To ensure reliable high quality, a QA team checks the drinks before packaging. And the parts of the peas that do not end up in our products do not go to waste. For example, the outer skin of the peas is used in animal feed.
