How to Make Non-Dairy Milk - Easy step by step recipe for delicious milks

Hi Bold Bakers!

Welcome to the fourth and final episode of my Bold Baking Boot Camp. This week we are learning How to Make Non-Dairy Milk including Almond Milk, Cashew Milk and Coconut Milk. In previous weeks we covered how to make Gluten-Free Flours, a Sugar Substitute Chart and a Weight Conversion Chart, so if you missed those you can always catch up. 

Whether you are dairy free or not, nut milks have made their way into our everyday diets. We have them in drinks like coffee, smoothies and also curries and soups. They taste great and they are incredibly easy to make. I’m going to show you how to make 3 of the most popular non-dairy milks.

We have come a long way in recent years from thinking that dairy free, gluten free and vegan ingredients and recipes are just for those who are intolerant or have a particular diet. Chefs and restaurants have educated themselves and learned how to serve up 5 star food that is geared towards anyone who wants to eat a particular way.

I’m fortunate to live in Los Angeles where a lot of this movement started. It goes hand in hand with our healthy living and active lifestyle. That might seem like a very broad statement but I can honestly say it’s true. One of the best meals I have had in Los Angeles was at a vegan restaurant called Crossroads. What was most memorable from that night was the vegan cheese plate with cashew cheese. If you haven’t tasted it before, I would strongly recommend it. It has a lovely soft and smooth texture with a nutty, rich flavor.

Important Note: You can replace Non-Dairy Milks for regular milk or water in your recipes. The equation is equal parts 1:1 ratio.

Hi Gemma
I’ve just come across this now. I was wondering which of these milks would make a good substitute in milk tart.

Hello mam, I am very keen to ask this question, I want to use coconut oil in my baking but not sure which one to use. In India, we generally don’t get separate cooking coconut oil. Its always used for hair, although on different packs its writte 100%pure edible oil yet some say don’t use its only for hair. If it might be for cooking then it would say virgiv, extra virgiv, refined , etc…. I am still confused what should I do, all I want to use is healthy coconut oil. Can there be any substitute or something like… Read more »

Hi Gemma! I have another question, this topic about vanilla extract, i live in Turkey and there isn’t vanilla extract. I want to do homemade vanilla extract but we don’t use alcohol. So I cannot other extracts(mint-orange). I use vanillin sugar(dr oetker, it is not vanilla it is vanillin) and it’s not right to use in recipes so what can I use instead of extracts? Or vanillin sugar is good and enough?
