Three Plant Based Milks

Jill Dalton
When it comes to Pant Based milks you have an amazing array of choices. There are even milk alternatives for people that have nut allergies so removing dairy from your diet you is easier than ever. Some of our favorite milk alternatives are soy milk, almond milk and oat milk. You have the convenience of buying these milk alternatives from just about any grocery store now, but for the people out there that want more control of what is in their milk, the best choice is to make your own. We have three different recipes for you to enjoy. Almond Milk, Cashew Milk, and Banana Milk.

  1. If you have a high speed blender, no need to strain. Just start with a little water until it’s well blended, then blend the rest.

    1. Even with a high speed blender there’s plenty of pulp to strain out, but it’s your prerogative if you don’t mind that. I notice a smoother milk when I soak the nuts beforehand and the final product doesn’t separate like it usually does with unsoaked nuts. I just pour through a mesh strainer instead of the messy nut bag so there’s no time added.

  2. Any suggestions on what to do with the leftover pulp? I hate to throw it away. I tried using it in the Superfood Cookies recipe. They came out okay but I preferred the cookies made with store bought almond meal.
