Zero-Waste Plant Milk Recipes
Hi Plant Lovers,
I have some super easy, yummy recipes for you today! Of course you have Chef Lauren and team to do the heavy lifting when it comes to cooking plant-based meals, so I’m excited to share my favorite plant-milk recipes you can make at home.
Why, you ask? First of all, most nut and soy milk cartons are not compostable, and also not recyclable. That’s right, they go right into the landfill.
Why else? No additives! You have full control over what goes into your milk (as well as the taste and consistency), meaning… no fillers, no sweeteners, no emulsifiers, no gums, none of it. Just wholesome goodness.
Also, it tastes great!
4-5 cups filtered water (less for thicker milk, more for thinner milk)
1 teaspoon organic vanilla extract
1 pinch pink salt or sea salt
Option to add 1 tsp maple syrup or 2 dates or 2 drops stevia if you like it sweeter (but I don’t think it needs it).
3. Pour mixture into a nut milk bag over a mixing bowl, or over a thin dish towel across a mixing bowl (pour contents into the towel and gather the corners and lift to catch the pulp, which can become cookies later!)
2 1/2 cups water
1-2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp pink salt
Option to add 1 tsp maple syrup or 2 dates or 2 drops stevia if you like it sweeter
