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.

Hello Gemma,

I love your recipes, thank you so much! I have a friend who is dairy free and I sometimes have difficulties finding alternatives to all dairy products (i.e. sour cream, cream cheese or buttermilk). On your website I have found several good alternatives but I was wondering if you could provide a lovely chart as you have made for egg substitutes.

Keep up the great work and greetings from Germany!

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

I followed your instructions but the milk does not last even for 2 days .I keep it in fridge immediately after making. It doesn’t smell sour for 24 hrs after 24 hrs it starts smelling sour third day it tastes and smells very sour. Please let me know what i may be doing wrong? Thanks
