i hate that milk, butter and eggs are for the most part unprocessed (although you do have to go through quite a bit of cruelty to get the final product), but their vegan analogues had to be invented. have you read the ingredients on the side of a nondairy milk lately? there should only be two ingredients, really: water and almonds. that’s not so shelf stable, so manufacturers add preservatives, sweeteners, artificial flavors, thickeners, conditioners and a few other things we probably shouldn’t be drinking just so the stuff gets to our houses without spoiling.
i’ll admit that i do love my light original silk soymilk though.. i drink a little too much coffee for my own good and i’ve found it’s one of the few things that doesn’t curdle immediately in a hot mug of it (the trick is to put the milk in first, but really who hasn’t figured that out yet?). however, when i decided to make my own nondairy milk, i purposefully did not choose soybeans. i thought it would be a little too beany and instead opted for almonds.
this is almost too easy, people.
