Ultra Mixer Grinder’s guide to making healthy dairy-free milk

Cow’s milk is a rich source of protein, vitamins and minerals. However, lactose in cow’s milk is sometimes difficult to digest and increasing number of people are now becoming lactose intolerant. In olden times, desserts like kheer were made with the milk of almonds and pistachios. Nut milk as a concept, while relatively new to the western world, has been a part of the Indian traditional cooking for centuries.

Nuts are a great source of energy, fibre and protein. They are a rich source of vitamins and minerals including magnesium and vitamin E. The fats in the nuts are mostly monounsaturated fats, omega-3 and omega-6 polyunsaturated fats. With very little saturated fats, nuts are very heathy and nutritious.

Making nutritious and delicious nut milk is fairly simple. You can make milk from cashews, almonds, pistachios, hazelnuts, almost anything.
