Nut and seed milks go a long way when you can’t source quality dairy from a nearby farm.
Whether you consume dairy or not, plant milk is always a good alternative especially when quality dairy is hard to source. First off nuts can store in your pantry for weeks and months. During this pandemic, COVID-19, food storage and sourcing have never been more important.
What’s also great is at any given time a handful of stored nuts can turn into a creamy and delicious milk. I have to come love my plant milks because they provide diverse flavors and textures to foods and you can really turn any seed or nut into a milk! I have been substituting plant milks for most dairy in my recipes for the last five years and never felt it never compromised them in anyway. Food for thought for those who haven’t embraced plant based milks.
