We are going nuts… over nuts! Taking over the world by storm, nuts are essentially one of the healthiest snacks to reach out for when you are feeling a little peckish. We’re talking about locally made nut-based products like nut milk and nut spreads.
So, we found some healthy, interesting and delicious nutty concoctions from various artisans brands that you can get right here, on our sunny little island.
1) Baking Blocks
Baking Blocks’ has an amazing collection of Pure Hazelnut, Pure Almond and Pure Pistachio Pastes.
Made with nuts and only nuts, a jar of their nut paste is loaded with healthy and creamy goodness, without those nasty additional additives.
Open a jar of their nut paste and there – a whiff of fragrant, nutty aroma that you are so gonna love. Are you a baker? Use these nut pastes in your homemade baked goods. Or just spread a dollop of them generously onto your morning toast.
Be careful though, because eating them straight right out of the jar is an addictive vicious cycle.

2) Wild Butter Co
Fresh batches of nut butters churn out from Wild Butter Co’s kitchen every Saturday.
With a new batch available every week, you can be sure that what you get is the freshest deal.

4) A Juicery
Aside from healthy and delicious cold-pressed juices, A Juicery takes pride in their nut milks as well!
Besides the fact that they are 100% raw & cold pressed, made to order, and are free from additives, they also come in interesting flavours. Think Choco Sutra, Chai Express and Longan Loco.
Longans are one of our favourite tropical fruits. A Juicery hit the nail on the head by infusing those sweet and juicy longans into a base of cashew milk.
The end product? A decadent healthy and sweet treat that relieves insomnia while keeping a healthy heart.
5) Gorilla Press
Gorilla Press’ Nut Mylks are made from a blend of almonds and cashews, resulting in a perfectly rich and velvety nut beverage.
They use the traditional hang-squeeze and double-filtration method to produce their nut milks. By doing so, they retain the maximum nutritional values in their products.
Lightly sweetened with medjool dates (one of the healthiest natural sweetener in the world), a bottle of nut mylk from Gorilla Press Co is packed full of energy and hence, makes a really great pre-workout meal or snack.
Inspired by their Asian roots, flavours such as matcha and black sesame are blended into their nut milks to give them that extra oomph and creaminess.
Ditch that green tea latte from Starbucks and give their matcha nut milk a try!
HIC pays a lot of attention to what goes into their nut milks.
Each and every single product is designed and certified by their very own in-house nutritionist in the hopes of bringing quality to their customers.
Taking such great care in perfecting their product formulations, the end products are a collection of high-quality and nutrient-packed beverages.
A great dairy-free perk-me-up from HIC is their coffee nut milk.
It’s a really simple blend of almond milk, cold brew coffee and medjool dates. Now, you can perk yourself up the healthy way!
