Give a woman a fish and you feed her for a day. Teach a woman to fish and you feed her for a lifetime.
However, it’s no good being vegan and catching fish, so here’s a recipe for homemade almond and oat milk instead.
Not only does making your own mean reducing the amount of packaging you’re using, it also allows you to tailor the milk to your taste. For those who suffer with sensitive stomachs, homemade milk is best due to the thickening agents used in processed plant milk that can cause irritation.
Almond milk is a powerful antioxidant with high levels of vitamin E, which helps protect our bodies against free-radicals and can help lower your blood pressure too.
Oat milk is great for lowering your cholesterol and blood glucose levels, and is an excellent source of vitamin B12. Both are great sources of calcium.
Almond and oat milk can be made separately or combined to make a plant-based milk hybrid that is full of goodness.
