Zero Waste Chocolate Almond Milk

Zero Waste Chocolate Almond Milk

Our Almond Milk blog is our most popular blog of all time. I’ve not just made that up to sound fancier than we really are, it’s true, it has had the most views by a LONG way.

I’ve been having a little play around with this recipe, because you all love it so, and my two favourite concoctions have been chocolate and golden milk (recipe coming soon, do not fret)

Our recipe for chocolate almond milk is so great (if I do say so myself) that it can be glugged straight from the bottle, as it is yummy enough to drink solo. Its also super healthy- you know me, I always like to be able to identify EVERY ingredient in anything I ingest.

Zero Waste with with Allergies, Intolerances and specific diets

Zero Waste living is hard enough, and with the added complexities you get with being unable to eat even more food groups, it can be even tougher.

Zero Waste Oat and Banana Muffins

Zero Waste Oat and Banana Muffins

Do you have a couple of sad, speckled brown bananas in your fruit bowl whilst you read this? I know I do…

However, if you haven’t got bananas in this sad looking sate- have no fear, you can speed up the browning process by whacking them in the oven.

Pop the two very yellow bananas on a baking tray. They may leak a little, so don’t just shove them on the oven shelf.
