Lorraine Kelly today Christine Lampard

Lorraine viewers horrified as Christine Lampard drinks potato milk

The Lorraine Kelly stand-in seemed baffled by the dairy alternative

Lorraine viewers were left baffled by the latest dairy alternative on Tuesday (August 24).

Christine Lampard was joined by Dr Hilary Jones to taste milk made from potato… yes, a potato!

For those who are new to the latest alternative, it’s vegan-friendly and free from common allergens such as lactose, gluten and nuts.

And it’s also low in sugar and saturated fats and is fortified with calcium, vitamin D and folic acid.

What happened on Lorraine today?

The TV doctor said: “Before you taste it, let me just tell you this apparently is the new vegan milk.

“This is apparently in terms of land use, twice as environmentally friendly as growing oats.

“Apparently it uses 50 times less water than you’d need to have almond milk.

“It’s full of calcium and vitamin D, low in sugar, low in saturated fat.”

He added: “But for a six-litre pack it’ll set you back £12.50p.”

Christine then took a sip, and told viewers: “It’s not an overpowering taste.”

“It smells like bread and tastes like potatoes,” she added.

However, sadly some viewers weren’t impressed with the latest milk variant.

Many rushed to Twitter to share their disapproval.

“Potato milk? I’d rather drink my own [bleep] #Lorraine,” joked one viewer.

Another said: “Won’t be drinking potato milk!”

“The world’s gone nuts, potato milk!” tweeted a third viewer watching at home.

“Wish you could replace Lorraine, she’s so boring. You know exactly what she’ll say about all the fashion, usually ‘I love this one’,” ranted another.
