Alt Milks Master Recipe

Our versatile recipe for plant-based milk works great with raw almonds, cashews, walnuts, and pecans, as well as with old-fashioned oats. For a gluten- and nut-free option, try using hemp seeds.

    Real dairy milk is a much healthier alternative. Please report the facts based on true science and become a friend to actual family farmers, the 1% the world relies on for each and every meal. Farmers are truly hurting right now and this is a slap in the face. I welcome you to meet our family and tour our 5th generation dairy farm.

      I hope you realize that you are taking offense to a recipe. Not everyone can drink milk because some are allergic and some are intolerant. It’s very difficult to find dairy-free recipes. I seriously doubt that the writers at Martha Stewart had the intent to make this a “slap in the face” to farmers. Before you get so defensive, think about the fact that this was intended for people who CAN’T drink dairy. Trust me, if I didn’t get sick from drinking or eating dairy, life would be easier and cheaper for me. I pray that your family business does well & I also pray you will find peace and understanding.

      I agree---why is this called "milk"...nothing more than colored liquid--

    I absolutely love that you shared this! 40% of people can’t drink dairy milk & I adore seeing recipes that don’t include dairy. Thank you, Martha, and I hope to see more dairy-free recipes!!
