How many things can you make with a plant milk?

Personally, I remember writing you numerous times about the one and only thing that can limit our cooking abilities or -on the contrary- boost them. I don’t know if you remember it…so I will just repeat it for you: It’s imagination! Our imagination can take the way with which we use and manage our ingredients to another level, boosting the texture and the flavor not only of our savory but also of our sweet recipes! So, today, I decided to talk to you about a special ingredient that I discovered a while ago. This is none other than the brand-new vegan milk of AdeZ which comes in three main flavors -almond (13 kcal/100 ml), coconut (22 kcal/100 ml), and soy (35 kcal/100 ml)- while, you can also find it in three delicious flavors with fruit juices! 

I got it, I put it in my refrigerator, and I started using it in my breakfast. During this “trial period” I observed that I did not miss milk at all. So, I thought that if it can be such a good fit for my cereals, then it could be a great fit for some of my recipes too. Well? What could I make with this new product? How could I make the most of it in my kitchen? My first concern? To get to know it even better…

The new AdeZ vegan milk is a mixture of plant-based ingredients, fruit juices (for the relevant flavors) and a sweetener of the stevia plant (steviol glycosides) enriched, in some of the flavors, with vitamins or minerals along with water. It’s also a Lenten beverage, with no added sugar, which does not contain any milk at all and, therefore, no lactose. It has natural sugars, it is enriched with calcium & vitamins, and it is considered ideal for those who follow a vegan diet. Lastly, its bottle is 100% recyclable since it is made with plant-based materials, up to 30% of them. So, I held a product that was beneficial to the body, to my kitchen, and to the environment! What could I do with it, apart from enjoying it in a glass? Many, many things…

  • Use it for a nutrient-rich breakfast, combining it with cereals. Done that!
  • Consume it as a snack at any time of the day. Done that!
  • Add it to my coffee instead of milk. Done that too :-)
  • Create delicious smoothies with it and… try it in my recipes – not only in cooking, but also in pastry cooking! And you know what? I did that TOO! The results? UNIQUE! So unique that I decided to share them with you right away :-)

All you have to do is try them and send me your comments and feedback.

Enjoy!
