At Lavva, we’re on a mission to realize the full potential of plant-based foods made without compromise.
Our founder, Liz Fisher, conceived Lavva with this goal in mind. She knew she had her work cut out for her. Most non-dairy brands were adding gums, coloring agents, natural flavors, or sugar to lower costs and expedite the manufacturing process, so we forged our own path — and set a new standard.
I created Lavva when I discovered Pili nuts while following a strict keto diet on a recovery journey from cancer. Nutritionally, Pili nuts are a superfood. Blown away by the Pili’s smooth, buttery flavor I began blending them with coconut milk and the result was unlike anything I’d ever tasted before: spoonably thick, deliciously rich. It took years to perfect because our mission has always been to have zero added sugar or processing agents like gums, emulsifiers or even natural flavors (a place where a bunch of tricks hideout).
Right now, more than ever, immune health is top of mind, and we know that 70-80% of our immune cells are housed in the gut. It was this incredible fact that drove us to craft a cultured superfood with a 50 billion probiotic count per cup in our signature Lavva yogurt. It was something that could ONLY happen in nature. With our latest innovation – Lavva Plant Milk, we recognized a need for a sustainable plant milk, made with real food ingredients. We spent countless hours developing a milk that is rich and creamy with no need for oil, emulsifiers or stabilizers. Our unsweetened milk is just 3 simple ingredients. Today, I am so excited to be able to share our functional superfoods with all of you. Thank you so much for supporting Lavva’s mission and for spreading the lovve.
Our name comes from our all-star (nutrient-dense, sustainable, delicious) ingredient, the Pili nut, which is grown in fertile volcanic soil in Southeast Asia. Pili nuts have high fat superpowers that give our products their creamy, smooth and rich texture.
