It’s 20 days into plastic free July and our household isn’t entirely plastic free yet. That, I think, is still quite a journey. But we are making progress and are introducing new plastic free routines.
Such as making our own milk instead of buying Tetra packs with plastic lids , packs of oatmilk, soy- and nutmilk.
I started out with making oatmilk. And it is just too simple. Add a handful of oats to a jar of water. Soak for about 4 hours. Blend and strain. Et voila!
Easy, plastic free and so much cheaper. I store the milk in a glass jar in the fridge and make about half a liter at a time.
You can add a bit of maple syrup or a date for sweetness but it tastes just as well without.
Next step: experimenting with cashew and almond milk….
