Coconut Flax MIlk

I use a lot of alternative milks in my daily life.  My favorite is almond milk but have you ever read the ingredient list on store-bought alternative milks?  My intention for 2015 has been to eat less processed foods.  I’ve wanted to make flax milk for a while and I finally got up the gumption to do it.  I’ve made other alternative milks in the past and have never really been satisfied with them.  I wanted to make something other than almond milk as my body needs variety.  I’ve bought flax milk in the store and even though I like it, kinda . . . it’s very expensive.  Considering that flax seeds are very inexpensive compared to almonds I thought I would give it a go.  I’m quite surprised with how yummy it turned out.

Ingredients:

1/4 cup      flax seeds
4 cups        purified water
1 cup          coconut milk (I used Trader Joe’s light).  I’ve recently began making coconut milk too!
1 tbsp.        coconut palm sugar
1 pinch       sea salt

Directions:

Add flax seeds and water to blender and blend on high for about one minute.  Strain that through a sieve or through a nut bag or cheese cloth.  Add the strained milk back into the blender and add the rest of the ingredients.  Blend to combine.

  1. I had to stop buying almond milk because of the Carrageenan in it. It made my fibromyalgia flair up big time. However Cashew milk doesn’t have it in there. Carrageenan is a thickening ingredient they add to a lot of things. So I may have to try this Flax milk ! Thank you!
