New Zealand-made avocado milk has been developed by chef Sachie Nomura.
The milk is sold across 100 stores in the United States and is becoming popular due to its health benefits.
The avocado milk is believed to be a world-first and is made in Hawke’s Bay from avocados and oat milk.
The new product was named among the winners at the global awards for food innovation in the UK.
Nomura also owns Auckland cooking school Sachie’s Kitchen.
At the annual World Food Innovation Awards in London on Thursday night, the avocado milk was named the winner in the best Health or Wellness Drink category.
Currently, the avocado milk is not available in New Zealand, but there are plans to launch a version soon.
