Coconut milk is undoubtedly my favorite dairy alternative. Perfectly fatty, rich, creamy, and sweet. I prefer it to almond milk as a substitute for yogurt, heavy cream, and buttermilk, because of it’s significantly higher fat content. It’s also my favorite ally for baking, as it behaves almost identically to whole cow’s milk or heavy cream. Without fail it whips perfectly into whipped cream, and never disappoints in baked recipes. In my house, we eat primarily south asian style, and coconut milk based curries and soups are regular dishes we enjoy. We are literally quite coo-coo for coconuts 😉
You know what is expensive? Fresh pressed juice. You know what is even more expensive? Purchasing a good juicer. Juice bars charge anywhere from $6.99 – 8.99 for 16 oz of fresh pressed juice, and a good juicer can run anywhere from $150- $500. If you don’t have that type of dough (or counter space for that matter) but would love to incorporate more fresh juices into your diet, we have good news for you. You can enjoy all of the tasty and healthy benefits of fresh juice in your home while saving big bucks. All you need is a high speed blender and a Nutiana Nut Milk Bag.
Cashews are another favorite nut we love to milk. Packed with protein, nutrients, and good fats- the milk from these nuts is some of the creamiest of all the nuts, and one of our personal favorites here at Nutiana.
Sprouting is the process of germinating seeds, beans, nuts or grains. It is a great way of getting home-produced fresh veggies into your diet without needing to garden or buy them from a store. Plus, they are packed with nutrition!
