Plant-based milk & yogurt
I loooove MYLK! (mylk = plant-based milk) … Almond, walnut, oat, macadamia, coconut… I use it in so many power recipes, including my delicious oatmeal, breakfast muffins and smoothies. I also heat and froth it to add to my coffee (usually oat milk). I also love to add it to my favorite evening drinks like golden milk and calming chocolate mylk. And I’m not the only one that’s a big fan… Plant-based milks are a great option for people who just don’t like the taste of cow’s milk, people with whom cow’s milk just doesn’t sit well and those who are lactose intolerant. Thank God that these days you can buy plant-based milk just about anywhere. And, for an even tastier option, you can make it yourself! In addition to mylk, there are also plant-based yogurts on the market:
You’ve probably seen these awesome yogurt options appear in my recipes. I love them! Coconut is my favorite. It’s super tasty and contains active cultures, which are great for your gut (probiotics galore! ; )). Unfortunately, making plant-based yogurt is costly and time consuming (due to the precision required to make the recipe). But to be honest, I don’t eat much more than a small portion at a time – it’s quite filling. If you’re comfortable in the kitchen, you can make plant-based yogurt yourself (as well as mylk). I like this recipe! I’ve made it a few times. It’s not difficult, but, like I said, there’s a certain degree of precision required to get it right.
Note: If I buy mylk or plant-based yogurt, I always choose products without additives or with as few as possible (additives include added sugar, thickeners, etc.).
