Oat milk is made from  oats and water so it’s vegan friendly, free of nuts, soy, and lactose. 

Coconut yoghurt is a delicious dairy-free option as it gives your breakfast that little bit of extra flavour. It also supplies several key vitamins and minerals. Most of the saturated fat in coconut yogurt is in the form of medium-chain triglycerides which can help control weight and boost immunity.The fibre in coconut helps with digestion and can ease constipation
