People who use Thermomix to achieve or maintain better health quickly discover that it is a super machine for making dairy-free milks of all kinds. Whatever the reason — whether we are avoiding an ingredient or introducing nutritional alternatives into our diet — there are many easy ways to make healthy milks while saving substantially on the grocery bill.
With Thermomix in the kitchen I regularly make all sorts of dairy-free alternatives that were previously unaffordable and that I never would have considered making at home. (Think almond milk, soy milk, oat milk, hemp milk, rice milk, and milks from quinoa, coconut, sunflower seeds and other nuts!) Like most things, making nut milk at home can be daunting to try at first. But after making non-dairy milk once, it can quickly become the go-to beverage for low cost, convenience, and health factors.
Thermomix bloggers make many milks!
