Dairy Substitutes - Make Your Own

How to make plant based milk – no additives - only pennies a cup

Making plant based milks does not have to be tedious with soaking nuts and using a nut bag. I have been using this quick and easy method for years and it cost just pennies a cup with no additives. I do not add sweetener, but if this was important for you add a touch of maple syrup or date sugar. Keep plant milks in refrigerator, and use within 4-5 days.  



When I started eating whole food plant based, I could not find recipes on the Internet. Everything had dairy, eggs and oil. I was delighted to discover The Ultimate Uncheese Cookbook by Jo Stepaniak and it became pivotal for me in eliminating dairy from my diet. I found Jo’s book very educational as it helped me build a strong foundation for whole food plant based cooking and taught me how to use unfamiliar ingredients. It also opened my eyes to animal cruelty and animal compassion. Today there is an explosion of creative, flavour rich and delicious recipes on the web to assist in your transition
