Sweetened Pea Milk

allergy friendly dairy free gluten free grain milks pea milk split peas vegan

You will start seeing, if you haven´t already, pea milk in the supermarket aisles. It´s a plant-based milk which is lactose-free, gluten-free, soy-free and nut-free. It´s vegan and allergy-friendly. The store-bought version is made from the flour of the yellow split peas which then goes through a process of solubilization and centrifugation to isolate the protein. This pea protein is used in these milks along with various additives such as oil, emulsifiers, preservatives, flavorings, etc.           Our homemade version is easily made with the NutraMilk from whole yellow split peas which you can flavor and sweeten as you like. It´s low in fat, it´s a great source of plant-protein and various vitamins and minerals. Give it a try and use it as you would use any other plant-based milk!
