Ep: 109 What the Plant Milk Is Going On?
Today, we talk about plant milk; soy, almond, coconut, oat, hemp, and rice. Why plant milk? First, the number one reason is milks made from plants are a healthier choice to milk made by a Cow’s or any animal for that matter, especially when you make the plant milk at home.
All you need is clean filtered water and whatever you want to make your milk from. It helps to have a high powered blending such as Blendtec or Vitamix, but you can make it with any blender it just won’t be as smooth.
2. The second reason to add plant milks to your life is convenience. You can store boxed plant milks for a year or longer and you can store all the items that you will need to make plant milks for just as long if not longer. This makes food creation fast so much easier. You can make smoothies, soups, cereals, baked goods, ice cream, desserts and so on. Also, making these items is super easy. There is no real skill required.
Once you make the any of the milks you will be so happy you ventured into this world of plant milks.
I also talk briefly about how cow’s milk is laden with chemicals, hormones, pus and antibiotics. You may want to watch some videos about the dairy industry and factory farming for added insights and information. It is truly a terrible industry and will aid you with the information needed to know what is really contained in dairy milk.
Most plant milks are 4 cups filtered water to 1 cup whatever you are making the milk from. But, remember the less water the richer and thicker the milk. To make it sweet you can add dates and or maple syrup. A pinch of salt and a squeeze of lemon is also a nice little addition create a nice flavor.
I hope you explore the wonderful world of plant milks and venture into making it at home.
