Almond milk vegan recipe

by Kayla Magazine

Almond milk vegan recipe is a healthy alternative for lactose intolerant people. It’s been about 9 years now since I gave up dairy. I’ll admit it was hard at the beginning. My baby had severe allergies, making me change my diet. I was used to having sweet quick coffee with milk and French muffins for breakfast. I gave up coffee and replaced the milk with vegan milk from the store, which was obviously also not the healthiest choice. However, after I stopped using dairy products, I never got sick again. I mean the flu or cold. My efforts to improve the child’s health by making dietary changes paid off.

How to quit dairy?

Many people say they could survive without milk, but not sour cream and cheese. That’s not possible, because it’s so delicious. I understand that the hardest thing is to give up something you really like. If you have given up dairy products or are looking for healthier options, I have good news for you. You can make similar products using nuts and seeds. From nuts or seeds, you can make incredibly delicious milk, cream, sour cream, and even cheese. Milk can be made from poppy seeds, sesame seeds, sunflower seeds, and oats. I tried everything until I found what I liked best. Milk and cream from hazelnuts, almonds, coconuts, walnuts or cashews are the tastiest for me. Cashews, walnuts, and Brazil nuts are great cheese alternatives. Have you tried cashew mayonnaise? You can make cottage cheese from a mixture of coconuts and cashews, walnuts.

Nutrition facts

Plant-based vegan milk is very nutritious. Vegan milk contains different vitamins and minerals depending on what kind of nuts you use. If you’re planning to make nut milk, soak your nuts first.

Almond milk has a mild, pleasant taste and is fairly easy to digest. It contains vitamin E, calcium, magnesium, iron and selenium. You’ll also love almond cream. Try almond milk with breakfast cereal or any of your regular meals. For me, plant based milk is equivalent to cow’s milk. You can use it to make cakes, soups, and cocktails. Add greens to almond cream and use it on salads.

What are the different types of vegan milk?

Coconut milk

Coconut milk has been used since ancient times. You can’t make Pina Coladas without coconut milk. Did you ever make a Pina Colada cocktail with homemade coconut milk? The taste is really different, so it’s worth trying. Coconut cream is the most delicious ingredient in Thai soups. What about Tom Yum soup without coconut cream? No way.

Hazelnut milk

Plant-based vegan hazelnut milk contains vitamin E, zinc, iron, potassium and copper. Hazelnuts are rich in antioxidants that fight free radicals and reduce cancer cell growth and lower cholesterol. Don’t eat more than a handful of nuts a day.

Cashew milk

Milk isn’t the only thing you can make with cashew nuts. You can use it to make cakes, dips, spreads, or as a cream. It’s up to your imagination how you use it. Cashews are an excellent substitute for various cheeses such as mascarpone.

Walnut milk

This milk makes the best hot chocolate because it’s thick and rich. You can make ice cream with walnut cream. Walnuts are rich in magnesium and potassium. They’re very beneficial for your immune system, heart, and brain. Plant a walnut tree in your garden.

Tips & Notes

You can prepare many different drinks and dishes with nut, seed or cereal milk. If you are planning to prepare vegan milk, keep in mind that nuts, seeds or grains should be soaked. Oats for 3-4 hours, almonds and hazelnuts for 6-8 hours. Brazil nuts, sesame seeds, coconuts, and poppy seeds need no soak at all.
