Almond Milk Questions: RE: cooking with said milk
Does anyone have experience in cooking with almond milk>>> I cannot do milk in any shape or form.
Can you make mashed potatoes?
Can you use it in place of milk in baked goods?
Etc? Any advice would be appreciated.
ever try coconut milk? it's a bit better than most of the almond milk they sell in stores. are you cool with butter?
I like coconut milk, don't get me wrong, but it is just unacceptable to have mashed potatoes taste like coconut, in my opinion And my son HATES coconutty flavor (which sucks nutrient wise) so when I bake I prefer to use something milder so he will actually eat it. So long story short, no coconut milk will just not suffice.
Yes, I can do butter! Just not milk or cheese, or pretty much anything else dairy....
I am open to new ideas though! Anyone else have a mild tasting alternative to almond milk that works well?
Have you tried raw milk? I don't know if you have access to a local farm or somewhere that might have raw milk, but it doesn't produce allergic reactions in a lot of people who are generally allergic to milk.
Just be wary of the sugar content of whatever your substitute is. My sister uses almond milk in a lot of her baking because she's vegan and it works fine.
I make my own almond milk and sweeten it with chopped up dates if sharing with others. If just for me I will just put in the almonds, water and vanilla stick or paste. Then the almond pulp gets used as well....
Oh my gosh! You can make macadamia milk??? I have got to try some. I don't currently make my own nut milks.
