Homogenized Milk, Cream & Coffee Creamer (Almond, Cashew, Coconut, Hemp) | Vegan, Paleo, Keto


hi everyone and welcome to my channel in
today’s video I’m gonna show you a few different recipes
we’ll start with plant-based milks including almond milk cashew milk
coconut milk and hemp seed milk I’m gonna show you how to make them
homogenized so they never separate as they sit in the fridge and I’m also
gonna share with you a recipe for vegan cream coffee creamer and half-and-half
alright let’s start with the milks first things first soak the nuts or seeds that
you want to use for the plant-based milk the milks I make most frequently at home
are almond milk cashew milk coconut milk and hemp seed milk almonds and cashews
take the longest to hydrate about 8 to 12 hours coconut and hemp are fine after
about two hours drain and rinse the nuts and seeds and add them to a blender with
some fresh water and blend now you don’t want to be draining the coconut and hemp
seeds because they don’t contain any phytic acid or enzyme inhibitors which
is why we are soaking the nuts and seeds in the first place one more tip use as
high-quality ideally organic ingredients as possible as you might suspect the
taste of the milks reflects the taste of the nuts and or seeds you use depending on the nuts you might need to
strain the milk you can use cheesecloth or my favorite and nut milk bag I find
that soaked cashews and hemp break down completely so you don’t need to stay in
the milk almonds and shredded coconut on the other hand do need straining now the milks look great but if you have
ever made homemade nut milk you know that it’s tends to separate as it sits
because the fat from the nuts and the water we added separate to make sure it
doesn’t happen you will need to use an emulsifier I use sunflower lecithin
which is not only an emulsifier but also a supplement with many health benefits
add the sunflower lecithin into the milk and blend once again for at least a
minute or two so the lecithin is perfectly blended with the milk now what if you want to make vegan cream
half and half or even vegan coffee creamer well you’ve got two options you
can either increase the nut to water ratio so instead of the classic one cup
of nuts to four cups of water you could do one cup of nuts to 2 cups of water or
even one cup of water or you could heat up the milk bringing the milk to a
temperature right before a boil will sicken the milk almost instantaneously
the one thing I want to mention is that the best that you can use for vegan
coffee creamer or half-and-half are cashews and that is for a few reasons
they are mildly sweet high in fat and they are more acidic than say almonds or
coconut I talked about why this is important on my blog I will leave a link
to the blog post as well as the recipe in the description box below so how much
does the milk second well it depends on how long you keep it on the stove it
takes just about a minute to get it to half-and-half consistency if you keep it
on the stove for a few more minutes you will get the consistency of heavy cream
and that’s it hopefully this video helped if you’re into making plant-based
milks cream and coffee creamer at home we’ve got four types of plant-based milk
here almond cashew coconut and hemp seed milk and as many of you know henna is
not a vegan however he does not drink regular milk so I make a lot of
plant-based milk at home because I use it for baking for cooking for drinking
and another reason why I make a lot is because Tana actually does not like
store-bought plant-based milk do you want to tell them why I find stories no
they’re too oily they’re too slippery across the palate where when you make
this at home you control the amount of oil that’s in there and I think that it
being fresher you get more texture and more taste so if you can do it make it
at home which the nut seed milk nut milk bag yeah comes in handy for that so I
would say my preferences for this one would be coconut milk is the best one
maybe because it’s like what I’m most familiar with but that’s my first
preference then it would be almond milk it’s more neutral so the coconut milk is
slightly sweet in a really nice way the nice pleasant taste to it no bitterness
whatsoever so the almond milk is the most neutral
mm-hmm it would be the best one to bake with I would say or a Trank or no the
coconuts of the string the almond milk would be my second favorite it’s the
most neutral then the cashew it’s very sweet slightly earthy and the hemp seed
if you asked me to tell you out of all these milks which is the most
distinguishable flavor it’s they have seed milk it’s very very earthy like
definitely you can tell you’re drinking absolute milk with that one so it
approaches bitterness than most it doesn’t quite get there but the
aftertaste is approaching there so that would be my preferences so coconut first
hemp seed milk last I would go cashew milk first or almond milk I like both
then coconut milk and then hemp seed milk all right so I hope you enjoyed
