Are you ready to take your vegan milk obsession to the next level?

With these vegan milk powders, you can enjoy litres of plant-based goodness condensed into a convenient, easy-to-carry container.

No more lugging around multiple cartons of oat milk for that comforting cup of tea at your next festival or camping trip. And no more panicking when you reach for that last carton of almond milk in your fridge, only to find someone had put it back in there pretty much empty.

Because you can buy your favourite vegan milk as a powder instead. These aren’t just emergency backups – they taste great in their own right and are a lot more sustainable than vegan milk in Tetra Pak.

Carry on reading to find my favourite vegan milk powders. There is something for all tastes and diets!

My top picks

Overherd oat milk powder - one of the best vegan milk powders

Best oat milk powder


  • Ingredients: Gluten-free organic oats, coconut MCT powder, chicory root fibre, calcium carbonate, and vitamin B12
  • Diets: Nut-free, soy-free, gluten-free, non-GMO and vegan
  • Price: £6.99 for 400g

Not only is this one of the most affordable options, but it is also my favourite vegan milk powder. Overherd have used gluten-free (yay) organic oats and mixed them with fibre, vitamin B12 and calcium, to create this nutritious alternative.

It is really creamy and really easy to mix. You can either add it directly to your coffee as a creamer, or you can shake it up with water and keep a bottle of it in your fridge.

One bag will last you forever, but it is still really easy to carry around with you.

Erbology almond milk powder - one of the best vegan milk powders

Best almond milk powder


  • Ingredients: Organic almonds
  • Diets: Organic, soy-free, gluten-free, non-GMO and vegan
  • Price: £17.99 for 200g

This almond milk powder base from Erbology is made using organic cold-pressed Italian almonds. Erbology is committed to creating natural products using sustainable and organic ingredients (they also sell a range of awesome mushroom supplements).

It is a really healthy vegan milk base with a subtle nutty flavour. It pairs really nicely with porridge and cereal.

They haven’t added anything else to the ingredients, so if you’d like some extra flavour I’d recommend a pinch of sugar and salt. It is best made overnight, so the almond powder has time to properly absorb in the water.

Island Source coconut milk powder - one of the best vegan milk powders

Best coconut milk powder

Island Source

  • Ingredients: Organic coconut milk and organic rice maltodextrin
  • Diets: Organic, nut-free, soy-free and vegan
  • Price: £8.99 for 225g

This coconut milk powder makes the most wonderfully creamy coconut milk. It mixes well with water and if you use a little more powder to milk, it can work well in curries when you run out of tinned coconut milk (like in this vegan Thai green curry).

I really like using this coconut milk with my coffee and granola.

To get the most out of this milk, mix it with warm water and leave it to absorb for an hour or so in the fridge before using it.

Urban Platter soya milk powder - one of the best vegan milk powders

Best soya milk powder

Urban Platter

  • Ingredients: Soya
  • Diets: Non-GMO and vegan (produced in a factory that handles nuts and gluten)
  • Price: £14.49 for 400g

Soya milk is one of the most realistic dairy milk alternatives in both texture and nutrition. This powdered soya milk powder is no exception. It is high in protein and made using non-GMO soya.

I personally really enjoy baking with this soya milk powder. Its high protein content is perfect for binding together vegan cakes.

I would recommend blending it with the water rather than mixing it as this will ensure you get a smoother more creamy soya milk.
