Vegan Guide: No (Plant) Milk Today!June 16, 2015
Well, they might go for plant-based alternatives, such as soy milk or soy yoghurt. And even though you can already choose from a great variety of products not everyone loves the taste, so we put together a list of things that might just become your new favourite ingredient – whether you are vegan or not!
Nut milks: made out of soaked, cooked and filtered almonds, cashews, hazelnut (slightly chocolat-y!), coconut, etc. / can add a lovely nutty aroma to your morning dish!
Grain milks: based on oat, millet, wheat, einkorn, rice, etc., typically with some added oil to resemble the texture of regular milk / sweeter than nut milks because of fermentation.
Fruit juice: never thought of that? What is often a vegan-last-resort option for when you’re at a hotel can make for an exciting difference. Try pineapple juice and boom – you’re on exotic muesli island!
Fruit purée or mash: if you already like adding a lot of fruit into your muesli why not try this for a smoother texture. Apple is a classic, of course, but you could also try mango, berries or banana.
Nut butter: this has got to be one of our favourite ones: try some almond or cashew butter with your Bircher Muesli instead of milk or yoghurt and, well, dig in. Soooo good!
Smoothies: are all the rage at the moment. So hop on the smoothy train and top it off with your favourite muesli or crunchy! Head on over to simply-vegan.org for lots of tasty recipes.
Compote: fruit is easier on digestion if you let it cook for a short amount of time. Add some spices, sugar or syrup and voilà! The perfect fruity pool for your muesli to bathe in. Want more instructions? Have a look at what Meliha has to show us on her blog.
Have fun mixing and matching!
