Nothing seems to get people more emotional or confused nutritionally as milk does so in this blog I am going to show you how to make almond milk at home.

Recently the Canadian Food Guide controversially removed dairy from its plate and that’s a big bold move in the nutrition world.

When you start to realize how much our way of eating involves milk, it can make it tricky and confusing living dairy free.

But it doesn’t have to be.

So a lot of people ask ‘if I’m not meant to drink dairy, what do I drink?’ and it gets confusing because alternative milks (or mylks are they are sometimes dubbed) can be full of nasty stuff that’s neither good for the body or the planet, so what’s left?

In today’s Sweet Freedom Recipe we are talking about milk and helping you get ‘unconfused’ while showing you how easy and delicious it is to make your own almond milk.

We think you’ll love it!

Love and hugs,
