Rainbow Milk: Naturally Coloured Almond Milk

IMG_1023.JPG
I was inspired recently to try making my own coloured milk. I used all natural plant-based ingredients to give it vibrant and lively colour. They were an absolute treat to drink as well. I think it’s always fun to mix up your meals and food, try something new, do always go for traditional. I’m so glad I did this, I’ve now got a delicious selection of colourful nut milks to pick from the next time I make it!

I chose to use 3 different main ingredients for each milk. Yellow was coloured with turmeric, Pink was coloured with beets and Green was coloured with spinach. Now, before you say yuck, veggie milk?! I sweetened the milks with dates and maple syrup as well as added a pinch of vanilla and cinnamon. All the milks tasted delicious and sweet! You actually could never guess I used veggies for colouring because it tasted like regular sweetened almond milk.
