Some people don't know that aside from animals, milk can also be obtained from plant materials. Some examples include the coconut milk, rice milk, soy milk, and almond milk.
As can be observed, majority of these plant milks are derived from grains and nuts making their taste slightly different from the cow milk that everyone has grown to know.
Although it may sound a new concept, almond milk has long been in existence and is enjoyed by a lot of people as early as the Middle Ages.
As its name suggests, the milk is made out of almond nuts. There are generally two methods of producing the milk: one is by soaking the whole nuts in water 8 hours or overnight and extracting the milk.
The other one is the most popular method for making homemade almond milk, is by grounding the nuts and mixing it with water producing instant milk.
It is a good alternative to animal milk and can be used for a variety of purposes.
Aside from the fact that it is extracted from a plant, the milk has distinct characteristics in terms of appearance, taste, and composition.
The color can be a bit darker compared to the pure white cow milk.
It also does not contain cholesterol, fats, nor lactose compared to animal milk.
When it comes to the taste, the bare milk doesn't have any sweetness.
Thus, a lot of manufacturers or home owners prefer mixing sweeteners or flavorings like sugar, chocolate, or vanilla before enjoying the milk.
