Lavva, one of the newest dairy alternative companies, isn’t about to lay dormant. They recently released a second line of dairy-free yogurt, called Molten Lavva, and are now entering the dairy-free beverage market. Like their other products, Lavva Plant Milk is made with pili nuts, but without added sugars. In fact, the Unsweetened variety contains just three simple ingredients: coconut water, filtered water, and pili nuts. It also comes in Chocolate, which is sweetened solely with dates and enhanced with mesquite and maca.
Lavva Stays Active with Launch of Dairy-Free Pili Nut Milk
Pili trees grow in the nutrient-rich volcanic soil found in Southeast Asia. They have been wild harvested for centuries, and only require rainwater to grow. Lavva has tapped into these trees for their sustainability and versatile nuts.
Pili nuts are known for being creamy, but a bit more pronounced in flavor than popular nuts like cashews. Their tender consistency blends well to create rich, plant milk. But tell us how it tastes to you. After you buy and try Lavva Plant Milk, please leave your unbiased rating and review below. It helps others!

Good but grainy
Not as rich barista oat milk, so it can’t replace dairy or oat in my coffee. But overall a good not too sweet flavor. Might be good for baking and cereal. My bottle was a tiny bit grainy.
Great addition to nut milks
I enjoy the rich flavor. It is so thick so I mix it with plain low salt forager almond milk, water and decaf coffee. For people with cholesterol issues, watch the level of saturated fats. I love the flavor and rich consistency.
Best chocolate milk ever!
I don’t understand the people that rated this amazing chocolate milk a 3.6. It is easily the best chocolate milk drink I’ve tried so far and it’s even better since it’s non dairy free. Even my picky sister who judges non dairy free people likes it lol gets a 5 from the both of us. I never leave reviews but this one deserved a bodyguard. You must try it!
As I did not see lumps or have weird smells or any of that. I find it to be a great alternative to some of the almond coconut products that have many more ingredients in them. I like the clean aspect of this and it foams great and takes care of my need to have half-and-half in my morning coffee. Thank you!!!
Creamy? Not at all.
I have 3 bottles of the chocolate. I’m downing this bottle purely for the nutritional benefits. The other two I’ll be using in smoothies. The plant milk made from Peas by bottlehouse is a far more enjoyable plant milk.
Chocolate plant milk
Horrible!! So many chunks in the milk and it doesn’t expire for another 3 months?? So gross. I’m vegan and love my plant milks but this one ain’t it yuck! Wish I could get my money back
Takes a while to get used to
I came across this page looking for more info on this product. On my first sip, it tasted like the milk was spoiled. But after the second sip, I realized I was drinking something very fresh and untouched. Similar to how you would feel after drinking coconut water straight from a coconut. Happy to see more clean options of milk that are derived from pili nuts. A superfood in many countries such as the Philippines.
taste and texture of whole cows milk
I love it. when you shake it in the bottle, it even foams up like whole cows milk. after drinking a glass, one feels satisfied. i tried both regular and chocolate, and both are equally good. The chocolate has a nice rich chocolatey taste
Takes some getting used to
Nutty and chocolatey and yes, slightly bitter at first, but give your taste buds a chance to adapt. Remember, this is unlike any of the processed foods you’ve been force-fed your entire life, so of course it’s going to taste different. Think of it this way: You won’t chug it like the gallon of processed sugar chocolate milk that you grew up on!
I think my favorite part of it is the texture, or lack thereof. Most nut milks have that gross gelatinous texture from added gums, stabilizers, emulsifiers. Lavva has none of that. It feels like “normal” milk in the mouth. That’s why I give it 5 stars. 5 for effort. I’d probably rate it 4 for overall taste, but 5 for using only 8 real food ingredients.
Clean dairy free chocolate milk
Tested pretty decent and lowed that it was light in sugar. A bit expensive for the quantity so taking one star off for it.
