Alternative milks in Thermomix

Did you know you can make alternative milks in your Thermomix?

From oat to almond, it’s just one of the many ways to save money with your Thermomix TM6.
But how do you choose which milk? The US Food and drug administrations says this:

Choose milk and plant-based milk alternatives that are higher in protein, vitamin D, calcium and potassium.

  • Protein builds bones, muscles, cartilage, skin, blood, enzymes, hormones and vitamins.
  • Vitamin D maintains proper levels of calcium and phosphorus, which can help build and maintain bones.
  • Calcium builds bones and teeth in children and maintains bone strength as you age.
  • Potassium may help maintain blood pressure and is needed for proper muscle, kidney and heart function.

Choose milk and plant-based milk alternatives that are lower in saturated fats and added sugars.

  • Saturated fats may increase the risk of heart disease.
  • Added sugars may make it hard to meet nutrient needs and stay within calorie limits.
