“Over the last few years there has been a surge in popularity for plant-based milks. There has also been much criticism that these dairy-free milks are lacking in essential nutrients. However, this is not always the case. Dairy-free milks made from nuts, seeds, oats, coconuts and tiger nuts are a rich source of vitamins, minerals, protein, essential fats and carbohydrates. The nutritional content of these plant-based milks can be further enhanced with the addition of other plant-based ingredients such as chia, moringa (both of which are excellent sources of calcium), kelp (for iodine) and seasonal fruits to name just a few. This is not to say that a plethora of ingredients are needed to make a highly nutritious and tasty milk. In fact, a few carefully chosen ingredients, all natural and readily available in the UK, can turn your almond milk into a delicious and nourishing drink which is jam-packed with your essential nutritional requirements.
Making your own dairy-free, plant-based milks and smoothies gives you full control over what goes into them, and most take no more than 5 minutes to whizz up. You can then enjoy a fresh, healthy breakfast at home or on the go: all the recipes in our book are designed to be easy and only require minimum effort plus a good blender.
The nutrient dense milks in our book, Plant Milk Power, are a great option for people who are vegans, lactose intolerant or simply want to avoid dairy milk. They make a tasty and nutritious addition to anyone’s diet and are a great way to get those essential nutrients.”
