Do you want to enjoy your morning coffee totally guilt free and know that it's actually improving your health? Do you like frothy, creamy lattes and wish you could drink them every day? Have you recently gone dairy free and are struggling to find a healthy, tasty milk alternative. I've been experimenting with some home made nut milks to enhance the coffee experience. Whether you are dairy free or dairy-full, this milk is a great switch which provides a creamy, frothy latte wi
I love baking, and love experimenting with new ingredients and recipes. I often research what's out there before working on my own version, substituting ingredients for more nourishing, healthier ingredients where possible.
