In the name of sustainability, many have started making their own nut milk at home. Not only is this better for our planet, but it also tends to use fewer ingredients and be more affordable.
And while this is already extremely eco-friendly, it can get even better. After making your plant-based milk, you can use the leftover pulp in a recipe — now the process is practically zero-waste! Check out these oat milk and almond milk pulp recipes for some ideas.
