Our vegan mylk blends easily into a variety of delicious smoothie recipes.
There are many reasons we choose to support a plant-based lifestyle. We do it for the animals; we do it for the planet; we do it for you.
Here’s the thing though, even being plant-based, you can be doing it all wrong and including things in your diet that may not be so good for you. This is especially concerning when it’s something you use every day and buy at the store, like plant-based milk. What’s in packaged plant-based milk that may not be so healthy? Check out these commonly found ingredients:
- Evaporated cane juice, cane sugar or cane syrup
- Emulsifiers – xanthan and guar gum
- Genetically modified oils
At Fruits & Roots we make our “mylk” with cashews so you can feel good knowing we are using only healthy ingredients.
What’s in our Cashew Mylk?
– (3) Cups of cashews
– (1) Date ball (21 pitted dates)
– (1) Tablespoon of vanilla
– A pinch of salt. That’s it!
But, how is it made?
These ingredients are then blended in a high-powered blender. A high-powered blender is very important to getting the desired consistency. If you are trying this at home and you don’t have a powerful blender, soak your cashews first to soften them. Straining our mylk for smoothies is not necessary, but when we make flavored mylks, (vanilla, chocolate, strawberry or coffee) it does get filtered through a nut bag to make these flavored they are extra smooth and creamy.
We use mylk in a variety of menu items including our smoothies, smoothie bowls, oat bowls, and our flavored mylk. View our menu here.
We understand it can be frustrating to feel like you are doing something healthy and then discover that you need to be more careful, but it will get easier as you learn more about different plant-based foods and ingredients. And, as always, feel free to approach any member of our Fruits & Roots family with any questions you may have. We have a very knowledgeable staff and most have been living a vegan lifestyle for a quite some time. We love to share our knowledge and experiences, and are happy to help in any way we can as you navigate your way to a more compassionate and healthy lifestyle.
