Potato Milk: Is It Worth Making the Switch?

Sustainability, taste, animal welfare—there are so many reasons to opt for plant-based milks over dairy. And now there is a new variety for you to try. Potato milk is trending as the newest non-dairy darling, and building a reputation for sustainability. It may soon be available locally, creating even more competition for the oat, soy, and nut milks we’ve grown to love. But is it worth switching over?

Potato milk 101

In its purest form, potato milk is a wholesome blend of peeled, cooked potatoes and water. To jazz up its earthy flavor, many DIY recipes also call for a little salt, sweetener, and vanilla.

Like other plant-based milks, potato milk is vegan (unless sweetened with honey). It doesn’t come with the concern of hormones or antibiotics that are often linked with drinking non-organic cows’ milk. Potato milk is also free of soy, nuts, gluten, and casein-free, which is a plus for anyone with food sensitivities.

Thanks to Professor Eva Tornberg at Sweden’s Lund University, who developed the technology to blend potato milk and rapeseed oil into a creamy, shelf stable vegan drink, commercial potato milk products have gone viral across international markets.
