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.
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
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.
