Have you ever heard or read the word “carrageenan”? If you look at your food’s ingredients list you may have seen it before, even if you buy ecological or natural products we can find this additive in lots of products, and it’s the reason why i started to make my own plant milk.
We can find lots of harmful additives on our groceries,even if you are careful with your nutrition style life, they can be literally almost everywhere.
At first (and that was already a few years ago) I felt overwhelmed about that, I thought that all those additives were forbidden, but you can still find them,and as I said, even on ecological products. That’s why for me is more important to buy local,natural and additive-free products than only ecological products.
Anyway, those carrageenan give a response on our body, alerting our immune systems and creating an inflammation response, and they are specially dangerous for kids or pregnant woman since they create a slowdown in body development.
I started trying those plants milks recipes and they are simple, healthy and super yummy.
I love rice milk so is this one that I am going to share,but they have all the same steps so you’ll choose your favorite cereal to make them.
For 1 liter of rice milk:
– one cup of rice
– 4cups of water
– (optional) “extras” like cinamon or vanilla
– (optional) a sweetener like honey or dates.
You’ll just need to let the rice on the 4 cups of water for the night and the next day blend it with another cup of water. Then add the optional ingredients if you want it.
Strain the rice in a cloth filter and :
That’s it, ready to drink!🍚🥛
