Recipe Notes

The reason I have noted just milk, because I believe like many of our food choices, this is where it gets really personal…

I’m all for oat milk minus all the additives and sweeteners.  Home made nut milks are also excellent, yet only lasts for 2-3 days.

In most cases I use raw milk, mainly due to the plethora of health benefits and my body tolerates it well - it was not always the case!

Secondly due to the fact it is readily available, and for that I am most thankful…

Oh and there’s a third, it’s the same price as conventional store bought milk.

Do avoid over-heating the milk to maintain it's nutrition, particularly if you are using raw milk!  Yummy!
