You don’t have to be vegetarian or lactose intolerant to prefer plant-based milks. Many people opt for these alternative milks as a way to lower their carbon footprint. Plant-based milks are a sustainable option for environmentally-minded drinkers, and homemade versions are even more eco-friendly.
As a family we have been drinking plant based nut milks for over eight years. We started off with the store bought nut milks until I got fed up with all the additives and thickeners inside (carrageenan, sunflower lecithin, etc.) I also didn’t like the fact that often they came in plastic lined cartons, something that is not easily recyclable. I then went down the journey of making my own nut milk, but with the very best intentions it was not something that was sustainable being a busy mum of two. Last year I discovered something that was a total game changer for me.
Let me introduce you to the ALMOND COW. It’s a machine that makes nut and seed milks in just a matter of minutes with minimum fuss and cleaning.
Here are the benefits:
No straining or nut-milk bag required
Choose your own ingredients
Super easy and simple, nuts, water and what ever else you want to add in
The pulp can be used for other recipes
Quick to clean – no mess
Reduces packaging waste
Saves money – way cheaper than store-bought milk
Tastes far superior than bought brands
Quick to make (2 minutes)
Some of the milks I have made with the Almond Cow include: almond, cashew, coconut, hemp seed and pecan.
