never buy nut milk again

Since many people can experience discomfort or have a sensitivity to dairy, there are many dairy alternatives out there. I use nut milks the most often in our home for everything including smoothies, chia pudding, baking, and even homemade yogurt. Store bought nut milks, even the organic brands, have added ingredients including sugars, gums, natural flavors (which can include a variety of additives) and carrageenan. I have checked every brand in my local health food store, and even the nut and coconut milks that come in the refrigerated section have additives. Truly nothing compares to making it in your own kitchen. And unlike many other do-it-yourself projects, nut milk is just too easy to not make yourself. A homemade option that is super simple (yay!!).

Cashew Milk

My personal favorite two nut milks are almond milk and cashew milk. I often make cashew since it’s thick & creamy (perfect as a cream replacement in coffee or tea), requires no straining (huge bonus!) and lasts up to 5 days in the refrigerator.

Almond Milk

Almond milk is a great alternative to provide a little variety. I only make almond milk once in awhile because it does require a little more work, however if you have sensitivity to cashews or prefer the taste of almonds, it is a great alternative.
