It’s taken us three years to create the Original Plant-Based Latte. And now that Kuji Drinks is finally here, we join the ranks of a new vegan movement erupting with adaptogenic drinks, nut mylks and “super-herb” beverages all promising an endless list of benefits for your vitality. In other words, we’re not alone.

Yet, despite the fact that it seems every man and his dog are peddling powdered sachets of Lion’s Mane and therapeutic doses of Ashwagandha these days, Kuji blends remain apart from the pack. From our unique alchemical formulations to the healing energetics we encode in every jar, find out what puts the ‘Original’ in our Original Plant-Based Lattes.

Meet the first activated plant cream concentrate.

Like so many people, a lactose intolerance and chronic sickness turned us onto the dairy-free way. Yet store-bought varieties of vegan nut “mylks” were barely a healthier dietary option. If they didn’t come loaded with preservatives and other nasties, it was impossible to find a brand that produced milk made from organic, activated and peeled nuts – the ultimate choice for a happy gut. Homemade nut milks became our only option. And, for anyone who’s tried milking a batch of almonds at home, you’ll know it’s an expensive, arduous process that yields watery mylk and little love.

Our activated almond milk cream concentrate is an original recipe consisting of two master botanicals: whole, organic, activated and peeled Spanish almonds combined with the oil and cream of organic Sri Lankan coconuts. Using ancient slow-processing techniques, we grind the formula with granite stone over nine days using slow-speeds and low-temperatures to maintain the natural ingredients’ active enzymes and live phytonutrients.

The result is a luxurious, creamy concentrate which forms the foundation of every Kuji blend. There’s absolutely no need to add extra ‘mylk’, all the whole goodness of the almonds and coconuts are concentrated and compounded to create a luscious plant cream. Simply, scoop it, blend it with hot water and you’ve got a vegan milk literally like no other.

Grounded by modern nutrition, western herbalism & ancient Ayurveda.

Creating a delicious plant-based drink is one thing, but empowering it with true nutritional substance is another. Our holistically-targeted formulations are grounded by modern nutrition, western herbalism and ancient Ayurveda for plant-based supplements that can support a wide range of wellness needs.

Try our Turmeric 02 plant-based blend – a highly specialised recipe drawing on 3,000-year-old Ayurvedic technology. This latte blend is absolutely loaded with some of India’s most revered medicinal herbs and spices, including turmeric, ginger and ashwagandha. But what makes this recipe so potent and vital for your wellbeing is the inclusion of black pepper and long pepper – containing the potent molecule piperine. Piperine is scientifically proven to increase the absorption of the inflammatory compounds of curcumin (found in turmeric) by 2,000% (*). We’ve even added in extra phyto-extract doses of curcumin and piperine for good measure.

Then there’s our Mushroom 07 blend – the ultimate nootropic latte – containing some of the world’s greatest medicinal mushrooms including Lion’s Mane, Reishi, and Maitake. We’re the only brand currently using a triple-extraction process to effectively yield the optimal benefits of one of nature’s greatest superfoods. With the addition of phyto-extracts of Bacopa and Gotu Kola – India’s greatest brain-boosting herbs – our Mushroom blend is an unparalleled choice for your daily wellness ritual.

Encoded with high-vibes to elevate your being.

We believe plants have the power to shift planetary consciousness. That’s one of the reasons we created Kuji Drinks: to do our part in inspiring your personal awakening process. It’s this intention we encode in every one of our blends. But to ensure the frequency of this blessing reaches your cup, we ensure our team places a huge focus on the energetic aspect of our creation process.

It all starts with our name: ‘Kuji’ is derived from Shinto Buddhism – a practice consisting of nine symbolic mudras, mantras and meditations traditionally used by ninjas to attain enlightenment and invoke inherent magical powers that lie dormant within. Each of our nine blends are grounded by these disciplines and targeted towards their associated energetic chakras. As our plant creams are being processed, our production team invokes each blend with their individual Kuji mantra and mudra for supercharged elevation.

We also utilise the vibrational force of natural crystals in the creation of our drinks. Specifically during our nut activation process, where our almonds bathe in pure spring water charged with the essence of Quartz Crystal. From a hygienic perspective, the gem essence assists in maintaining the water’s purity by preventing the growth of bacteria. While energetically, it works to awaken and amplify the life-giving light energy existing within every almond.

Ancient sound healing frequencies are also key to creating our high-vibe, radiant vegan drinks. We play Vedic mantras to our Turmeric and Masala Chai blends. Palo Santo listens to ‘Icaros’ – shamanic medicine music from the Amazon. And, sometimes we even sing over the blends ourselves to optimise the altitude of our intention. We believe it’s this kind-of obsessive attention to maintaining the energetic integrity of our drinks that’s what makes Kuji taste otherworldly.

It’s not just about the drinks. We make eating vegan easy too.

Kuji’s not just for making lattes, they’re for creating delicious plant-based dishes too. This is where Kuji gets really exciting. Their concentrated power elevates your favourite vegan and non-vegan recipes to celestial heights. Making eating plant-based, vegan or dietary-restricted oh-so simple.

Use our Natural 08 plant cream to make everything from gluten-free pizza bases, dreamy protein smoothies, raw sweet treats, and flatbreads. Try Turmeric 02 in curries to upskill your spice levels to Guru-ji status. Mushroom 07 for an incredible nootropic tagliatelle. Or, experiment with our Rose 04 and Palo Santo 05 blends for supernatural desserts.
