Bolthouse Farm’s Plant Milk

Leave it to farmers to bottle a creamier more delicious milk made from PEAS. Yes, you read that correctly, peas. It’s milk with a bigger flavor and a smaller impact on the land. It contains 50% more calcium than dairy milk and 10 grams of protein per serving versus just 1 gram in almond milk. As if it couldn’t get any better, it’s vegan, non-GMO, and doesn’t contain dairy, lactose, nuts, soy, or gluten.

They have 4 delicious flavors to completely satisfy your milk needs: chocolate, vanilla, original, and unsweetened. My personal favorite was the unsweetened because I was used to the the unsweetened almond milk and to be honest I cannot tell the difference. The chocolate and vanilla are also good but  very sweet so they are good for smoothies and baking.

Here are three recipes using my new milk alternative.

coconut oil, and the milk /water for plant milk protein.

The brown batter is the chocolate plant milk. The blue batter is blue majik milk capsule plus the vanilla plant milk. The orange is pumpkin spice. The pink is dragonfruit.
