1 The Best Vegan Milk (Non-Dairy) Alternatives Are you looking for some healthy vegan milk alternatives that can please your taste buds at the same time? Well, the market is flooded with dozens of non-dairy milk beverages and quite a few of them are worth trying. Sounds interesting? Read on below to learn more: Why Vegan Milk is a Good Choice for You? No matter whether you are a vegetarian or a non-vegetarian, picking non-dairy milk alternatives over the regular ones is always beneficial for you. Let us dig a bit deeper and find out why one should go for vegan milk choices: Being free of lactose, it is non-allergenic. So, if you are allergic to cow milk, going vegan will help you a lot. If you have lactose intolerance, the chances are big that you experience acid reflux, abdominal gas, bloating, etc. frequently. Dairy-free milk substitutes can eliminate these symptoms fast and easily. Acne and regular milk always go hand in hand. The risk becomes even greater in case of skimmed milk. But when you replace your dairy consumption with the vegan alternatives, you get rid of it. When the milk is produced from a cow non-organically, it gets contaminated by the antibiotics and hormones injected into the animal s body. The unnatural production process of milk also causes mastitis to cows, which results into the presence of pus in milk. All these lead to hormonal imbalances and various other ailments in human beings. However, when you opt for non-dairy milk, you can always stay away from these worries. Most of the vegan milk alternatives can be made easily, quickly and economically at home and you can even add lots of flavor to it. 8 Best Vegan Milk Alternatives You Should Try Soy Milk It is prepared by pounding and processing dried soybeans with water. You can find a variety of flavors including light, sweet, full-cream, vanilla, chocolate, etc. in the market. The density and creaminess of the milk may also vary greatly and it tastes even better than regular milk. The protein content is almost similar to cow milk (around 8 grams a cup). High in dietary fiber, calcium, potassium, magnesium, vitamin B1, vitamin B2, vitamin D, plant- based omega-3 fatty acid, antioxidants, phytoestrogen, manganese, selenium, phosphorus, choline, folate, etc. Very low in saturated fats and sugar Lactose and cholesterol-free Prevents prostate cancer, osteoporosis, cholesterol transportation, etc. Strengthens blood vessels Eases menopausal symptoms

Just DIY! We are giving you 3 easy, simple and fast vegan milk recipes to try at home: (1) DIY: Homemade Almond Milk Recipe Ingredients: Best-quality raw almonds 1 cup (organic is even better) Sea salt 1 teaspoon Distilled water 2 to 4 cups (as per your preference) Method: 2. Take the almonds in a glass bowl and pour distilled water into it to soak them completely. Add sea salt to the water and cover the bowl with a lid. Keep it aside for nearly 12 hours. Rinse the swelled up almonds well under running water to get rid of all sorts of enzyme inhibitors. Now, put the almonds in a blender and pour rest of the distilled water into it. Blend thoroughly to mash all the nuts.

5 4. Strain it or not, your creamy almond milk is absolutely ready! (2) DIY: Homemade Oat Milk Recipe Ingredients: Oats 1 cup Organic raw honey 1 to 2 tablespoons (as required for sweetness) Sea salt (1/4) teaspoon Distilled water 3 cups Method: Rinse the oats well and drain them perfectly before placing them in a bowl. Add water to it and cover with a lid. Let the oats soak for 8 to 10 hours so that they get softer as well as easier to process. Once again, rinse the oats well and remove the oat slime completely. Shift them to a blender and pour distilled water into it. Blend for some time and sieve it. Press the semi-pulverized oats with the backside of a spoon in order to take the maximum milk out of it. Add honey and sea salt to the concoction and your homemade oat ilk is here! (3) DIY: Homemade Brown Rice Milk Recipe Ingredients: Sea salt 1 teaspoon Distilled water 2 cups Brown rice (1/2) cup Method: Clean and wash brown rice properly and soak it in water for a couple of hours. 2. Cook it as usual. Now, place the cooked brown rice inside a blender jar. Also, add sea salt and distilled water to it.

6 4. Blend until a smooth, thick milk is formed. 5. Voila! So, are you ready to switch to vegan milk alternatives?
