Now it’s tiger nuts

Written by 

A UK man has invented a vegan milk he hopes will be a best seller.

Tigermylk is already sold to residents of some suburbs of Bristol.

Founder Josh Coppersmith Heaven hopes this is only the beginning for his new beverage made from tiger nuts. He got the idea after sampling a similar drink during his travels in Africa.

Josh says the tiger nuts create a creamy texture; he aims to rival vegan milks already on the market including oat and almond.
