Coconut milk is one of our favorite alternatives to cow’s milk. It is quick, simple and economic to make yourself.
Why Coconut Milk?
It’s 100% lactose free & gluten free: Many people have some degree of lactose intolerance, and coconut milk is a great way to enjoy a creamy beverage while avoiding the negative side effects of lactose.
Packed with nutrients: Coconut milk contains good fatty acids, including lauric acid, which help lower cholesterol and protect the body against infection.
Hormone and Antibiotic free: Cow’s milk goes through an extreme process, with high amount of antibiotics, hormones, and genetically-modified substances that cows are continually exposed to. This, among other reasons have made us switch to non-dairy alternatives.
Homemade coconut milk made from fresh, organic coconuts contain no toxins or hormones, making it a purer, healthier choice.
