Simple Homemade Flax Milk

Simple Homemade Flax Milk

As you’ve probably gathered from many of my recipes, I heart flax milk.  I find it to be a great neutral non-dairy milk great for baking, drinking, or using in creamy soups.  This homemade one can be whipped up in minutes and can be sweetened to your liking with dates, stevia, or honey. By simply adding a little more sweetener at a time you can adjust exactly how sweet you like it! Bonus feature, it only takes 1/3 of a cup of flax seeds to make this nutritious delight, making it very cost effective to make at home.
