Are you craving for milk? Or do you have a taste for some pudding? In low carb lifestyle there are different variations.
I try to stick with Almond or Coconut milk. To me they taste the best and I use them in everything. Again you need to read always ingredients since some of them do contain sugar or rice for some reason.
is made of almonds with a creamy texture and nutty taste. It contains neither cholesterol nor lactose, and is often consumed by the lactose-intolerant and others who wish to avoid dairy products, including vegans. Commercially it comes either sweetened or unsweetened and is usually enriched with vitamins. But do you want a home made option? It is also possible at home using a blender, almonds and water.
If unfortified, almond milk has less vitamin D than fortified cow’s milk. In North America for example cow’s milk must be fortified with vitamin D, but vitamins are added to plant milks on a voluntary basis.
is the liquid that comes from the grated meat of a mature coconut. We should not confuse it with coconut water. The color and rich taste are attributed to its high oil content, most of which is saturated fat.
In a 100 ml (gram) portion, coconut milk provides 230 calories and is 68% water, 24% total fat, 6% carbohydrates and 2% protein (table). The fat composition includes 21 grams of saturated fat, half of which is lauric acid.
Coconuts in general contains much more calories than almonds so if you are looking at reducing your calorie intake, almonds would be a far better option.
