Almond Pumpkin Hemp Milk

• nut + seed milk • plant-based • dairy-free

Making your own plant-based milk can be much healthier and more sustainable than buying them.  Blending a mixture of nuts and seeds adds different flavours, nutritional properties and can be a thrifty budget saver. 


Depending on where you live in the world almonds are often not the most sustainable choice due to water requirements and pesticide usage.  Hazelnuts or cashews can be great substitute.
