Experiment with dairy-free milk
For those who want to experiment with healthy dairy alternatives, especially families with sensitivities, there is a variety of dairy-free milk that you can store in the cupboard. Tsakos keeps an eye on sales and then stocks up on almond, rice, oat, soy and hemp milk. These can all be used for baking, soup bases, on cereal and in smoothies. Tsakos likes soy or almond milk for its richer consistency than skim or 1% milk. She’ll add it to pureed broccoli or butternut squash with carrots for a creamy soup.
To store: The milks listed above come in aseptic containers that you can store in the cupboard for months (just be sure to check the expiry dates).
