Cow’s milk has been stated as a healthy choice of food for all ages as it’s packed with calcium and fortified with vitamin D, both of which are essential for building strong bones. Regardless of its saturated fat content, milk is a great source of protein that can keep you active and fuller all day. Our current guidelines recommend us to consume three glasses of milk a day including milk, yogurt, and cheese.
A cow’s milk is only for calves and not for humans
Nowadays, cow’s milk has been critiqued for its nutrient composition and its side effects.

The dairy products are high in saturated fats and cholesterol and can be linked to heart disease. The proteins, hormones, and antibiotics found in cow’s milk are found to be unhealthy for humans. Cow’s milk is not digested by all and causes lactose intolerance in many people.


Let’s know about the vegan milk substitutes that we can prepare easily at home.


Soya milk


Soya milk can be included in your diet as a source of protein. It contains all the essential amino acids. Soy protein also helps in reducing bad cholesterol. Soya milk is rich in calcium, iron and vitamin B complex. Getting enough vitamin B12 in your diet aids in red blood cell function and also keeps your nerves healthy. Soya milk is prepared by soaking it overnight in water, till it becomes soft enough to be crushed by hand. After dehulling, it should be blended and strained.  Then the soya milk has to be boiled till bubbles turn out. You can add a stick of cinnamon, or even a few tablespoons of melted chocolate to give the soy milk additional flavour


Oats milk.


Oat milk is a vegan alternative to cow’s milk that’s becoming trendy these days. It’s made by blending soaked, rolled oats in a blender with water and then filtering the liquid through a clean cloth or a strainer to extract the milk. you can also flavor the milk by adding cinnamon, cardamom based on your likes. Though Oat milk is relatively low in calories, it contains proteins, vitamins and minerals like calcium, riboflavin, and vitamin D. Oats also contain a phytochemical, beta-glucan that boosts heart health, regulate blood sugar level and improves immunity.




Almond milk

Almond milk is low in fat but high in energy, proteins, lipids, and fiber. Almonds contain minerals like calcium, iron, potassium, and vitamins like vitamin C, B complex and Vitamin E. For people who do not want to consume cow’s milk, it would be an ideal choice to consume homemade almond milk.  Soak almond for a couple of days, drain the water and blend it with water. Strain the milk using a clean cloth or strainer. Make the milk to the consistency of milk, add honey and relish it.
