Is it just me or do you wish you had an almond tree in your backyard? Almond milk has always been my go to for a nutritious milk alternative, but LAWD are those little gems expensive. So, I've been on the hunt for other options. I've tried both boxed and homemade hemp milk, hazelnut milk, cashew milk and then there was this homemade coconut milk, so I've changed my mind I want a coconut palm tree. Too much to ask for in Canada? I think not!
This homemade coconut milk is truly refreshing, delicious and inexpensive. Unsure why you should check out coconut milk, here are my top 5 reasons:
Improves digestion by nourishing the gut lining
Free from preservatives, thickeners and emulsifiers
Contains lauric acid, a medium chain fatty acid thats used by the body for energy
Prevents fatigue and provides electrolytes
Tastes AAAAmazing! (need I say more?)
