Regular old black coffee is vegan. However, coffee recipes like cappuccino, and similar lattes with milk are not. Vegans have to come up with substitutes and alternatives for milk in their coffee.
Luckily for them, and for you if you are a vegan, there are many tasty and flavorful substitutes for milk. Most vegan milk substitutes are made of nuts, like almond milk and cashew milk. They deliver the same creamy consistency similar as milk, but not the same taste.
These substitutes for dairy milk are best in non-savory dishes, and coffee fits that bill. Here are some recipes how to prepare your vegan coffee in the morning.
