People who are lactose intolerant are usually asked to switch to plant-based milk. But even fitness enthusiasts prefer plant-based milk over cow’s milk as it is low in fats. It is also the choice of people who follow a vegetarian or vegan diet.
Plant-based milk is rich in vitamins and minerals, and low in cholesterol. It is also advised to people who have a slow digestive system. So considering its many benefits, it can be a healthy alternative during the current lockdown period as you may run out of milk at home on a given day.
Here’s how you can make three different types of plant-based milk at home
