More people than ever are choosing to consume plant-based milks over dairy, with many choosing these alternativesto be more environmentally friendlyor as a result of being more health conscious. Gone are the days of soya milk being the only non-dairy milk option and its ‘beany’ taste (if you know, you know!) wreaking havoc with the taste of your coffee.
Far from being limited with your options as you once were, the plant-based milk business has become particularly lucrative in recent years, with brand after brand releasing a new and exciting dairy-free delight.
So how can you continue with plant-based milk without it costing you a fortune in the process?
FRESH NUT MILK FROM HOME – LOVE OR LOATHE?
As with most things in life, making from scratch will often cost you less in the long run. And making your own nut milk is no exception. But it’s tedious! The preparation is laborious, and nut milk bags are often difficult to clean. Before you know it, you’ve whiled away hours in preparation for it to only last a few days and taste far from how you’d hoped - leaving you with a sour taste in your mouth in more ways than one….
THE NUTRAMILK NUT PROCESSOR – A SOLUTION YOU’LL GO NUTTY FOR (SORRY)
TheNutraMilk Nut Processoris an easy way to make fresh, dairy-free milk alternatives. Taking away the fuss of having to soak, strain, rinse, and blend nuts for hours, you’ll have delicious nut milk in less than 12 minutes. Yes, 12! That’s a lot less time than it takes to go down to the shop when you realise you’re out of milk again!
The design is UL-certified and BPA-free, so you know you’re using a safe and reliable product.
It’s cheaper– while buying a tool like theNutraMilkmight feel like a bit of an outlay at first, you’ll certainly get a nice return on your investment when you consider how much you’ll save by not having to buy ready-made named brands as often (if ever).
You can mix nuts– ever fancied an almond and hazelnut latte but didn’t want to open two separate cartons? Now you don’t have to! You can blend any kind of nut in any ratio you want, giving you creative control. Coffee shops don’t usually offer blended plant-based milk with their drinks, so this is even more of a reason to try out some new blends.
You control the ingredients– by making your own nut milk, you completely control any extra ingredients you add. Many supermarket nut milks contain additives and emulsifiers to give them a longer shelf life, so by making your own nut milk, this is no longer an issue.
You can batch make in no time at all– we’ve all been there… opening the fridge and realising you’re out of milk! TheNutraMilkcan make up to 2 litres of your favourite nut milk in less than 12 minutes. That’sa lotof milk. Plus, by making your own nut milk there will be no empty containers to dispose of, making your ecofootprint smaller. Win-win!
It tastes so much better!– this one goes without saying as things tend to taste better when you make them yourself – and in this case, it’s true! Not to mention the satisfaction of knowing you’ve made your entire brew from scratch.
So isn’t it time you said goodbye to wasting hours (or sometimes days) soaking nuts and making a dairy-free milk-shaped hole in your wallet? We think so! If you want more inspiration for which milk you should try with your coffee,read our blog on dairy-free milk alternatives.
