Go Nuts With These Super Delicious Plant Milk Recipes! | Vegan Friendly

For all my dairy free frens, vegan frens, frens who are trying to cut dairy out of their diet, or even my frens who aren’t, these 6 nut milk recipes I have are going to blow. your. mind. 

I’ve been dairy free for quite some time, and of course the first thing people turn to when they go dairy free is what? …almond milk. But did you know that almond milk bought in the store is not as healthy as it could be? Read the label, you’ll see so much stuff in the ingredient list and say to yourself ‘what in the world is all of this???’ If its almond milk, shouldn’t the ingredients just say almond, salt, a natural sweetener and water? Almond milk brands, and other nut milk brands sold in stores contain so many unnecessary ingredients that end up doing more harm than good and that’s why I’m here to share with you the CLEANEST, HEALTHIEST, nut milk recipes. 

Now you guys know that I have to tell you the benefits before I tell you how to make it lol but I’ll keep it short. Nut milk contains neither cholesterol nor lactose, which makes it perfect for people who are lactose-intolerant and others who wish to avoid dairy products (like myself), including vegans. Nut milk is low in fat but high in protein and fiber. It also contains a plethora of vitamins and minerals needed by your body.
