Unsweetened Flaxmilk – the unsweetened version of both brands is perfect for baking and/or as a base to milkshakes and smoothies. It is versatile because it can also be added to savoury and sweet cooking recipes, due to its neutral flavour.
Flaxseed milk presents numerous health benefits:
unlike cow’s milk, flax milk contains no cholesterol or lactose, making it healthier for your heart
flax milk also contains omega-3 fatty acids from the cold-pressed flax oil, that has been shown to help prevent cancer, diabetes, heart disease and strokes
it is naturally lactose free, as well as being completely void of cholesterol
flax milks are fortified with minerals and vitamins, including vitamins A, B12 and D, as well as calcium, which equals the nutritional value of other milk alternatives
low in calories
flax milk contains no saturated or trans fat
alternative for those who are allergic to soy
in addition to being soy-free, flax milk is free from the top eight allergens (from ingredients) including gluten
it is creamier than a lot of other milk alternatives
now in the usa u can buy it
At present there are only two main brands of flax milk on the market: FlaxUSA Flaxmilk and Good Karma Flaxmilk, which offer almost identical ingredients and nutritional profiles.
or 4 others u can make it
WANT TO MAKE FLAX MILK YOURSELF? HERE’S HOW YOU CAN DO IT… (this is the sweetenned version i like it unsweetenned)
3 cups filtered water
½ cup whole flax seeds
½ – 1 cup additional water (to add after straining)
2-4 pitted Medjool dates (sweeten to taste)
1 whole vanilla bean or 2 tsp vanilla essence (to taste)
Place flaxseeds into the blender, along with the initial three cups of filtered water
Blend on full power for 1 minute.
Place a nut milk bag over a bowl and slowly pour the mixture in, repeatedly squeezing the bag to release all of the milk.
Rinse blender and pour the milk back in, blending on low power while adding additional water and vanilla bean/extract to achieve desired consistency
Sweeten to taste
Pour into a glass jar and store in the fridge for 3-5 days. Drink!
As an alternative to vanilla, almond extract, cinnamon, and/or nutmeg could be added. To create chocolate milk add some cocoa powder, or to make strawberry milk add fresh strawberries.
