Nutmilk vs Dairy Milk

Nutmilk vs Dairy Milk – which one is more healthy?

A lot of people asked my why I stopped drinking dairy milk and started drinking nut milk instead. The most of the people who drinks dairy milk don’t know what it really means. Like me! I never know about the immoral aspects of drinking milk. Dairy milk was a big part of my diet. Since I change my consumption I feel so much better. Nobody need dairy milk in my opinion.

The first reason to stop drinking dairy milk was the animal abuse. I don’t like to support any animal abuse with drinking milk. Sure I never hurt a cow by myself by drinking milk but it feels like I hurt it by myself. I really felt bad after reading lots of animal reports about the housing conditions of conventional milk cows. I never know it! Did you know the calves are moved within a few hours after birth? Because we like to drink dairy milk?

The health facts of dairy milk are not that high as many people thinking. Did you know that many scientific studies have shown an assortment of detrimental health effects directly linked to milk consumption? The story about the health benefits has spread around the world based on the flawed belief that this calcium-rich drink is essential to support good overall health and bone health. But that isn’t true. I am sure you will find the same answers if you are starts to read more about the true health benefits of dairy milk. The industry are ruthless! They earn money because people like me don’t know about the truth.

Cows are intelligent and brisk animals. They suffer when they need to produce too much milk. They need to milk 50 Liters a day instead of the normal 8 Liter. You don’t need to be clever to recognize the animal abuse. Apart from this my heart is broken by recognizing the calves suffer. The calves are moved within a few hours after birth. That’s a shame. I feel co-responsible by drinking milk.

Nutmilk ist better. I experienced about the negative health aspects of drinking dairy milk. Here are some Facts:

• A lot of scientific studies have shown an assortment of detrimental health effects directly linked to dairy milk consumption
• Today’s milk is a processed food and not a natural product
• A lot of the vitamins get lost by pasteurizing the milk
• Antibiotics are used on many farms to treat infections. This Antibiotics remains in the dairy milk. Our body don’t need antibiotics.
• Dairy milk is often contaminated with lots of heavy metals and Dioxin.

Sure dairy milk also have some positive benefits. But a lot of negative ones. So why should we drink milk?
Only because it’s tasty? That’s reason is not enough for me so I decided to use Nut Milk.

Here are one of my favorite recipes:

How to make sweet walnutmilk

Walnutmilk – Ultra-Delicious-Tasty-Super-Amazing-Stunning-New-Basic-Food-Without-I-Would-Die!
I am SO happy to have this milk in my recipes.
And I am sure others will call me crazy because I am so happy about a NUTMILK! But I feel super alive when I discover new food, recipes or ingredients.
I am also sure some of you totally understand me ;o). Foodimaniaaaaa!

At the moment I make a research about dairy milk because I get ask why I stopped drinking dairy milk very often. I will write a blog post about my opinion to share my feeling and findings. In the meantime I share this easy and healthy walnutmilk recipe with you which I prepare 3 times a week to use it in muesli or smoothies. In the beginning of drinking nut milk I started with a classic almond milk. Because it taste so good I don’t want to try out another and miss my almond milk. The end result was almond milk for months. I don’t see walnutmilk very often and I asked myself if it would taste really good because of the light strong walnut flavor. Now I am so happy I created this easy version because I can’t stop drinking in.
Maybe it’s my next milk for the next months :o).


Sometimes I felt too lazy to prepare my own milk and I bought it. During this time I cook not that much and I’m sitting in my blue chair most of the time to read my fantasy and science-fiction books (yeahhhhh… I am a totally Avatar, Lord of Rings, Tributes of Panem and Game of Thrones!). My cats are with me in these lazy times. I love them. This time and my cats!

In this time I heard about the unhealthy effect of nut milk, the people told me “Why are you drinking nut milk? It’s unhealthy! I read an article in the press about it!” No guys it isn’t, you only need to take care which QUALITY you buy. Please please don’t trust any publications without make a little research. The press can make us so stupid. I learned that they are many differences in the bought quality. You can get healthy nut milk in organic stores. These ones I found in normal supermarkets are full of unhealthy ingredients. Have a look on the ingredients bevor you buy nut milk. Much more better is to make it by yourself. But I know sometimes we don’t have time or we are too lazy to make it.

You can store home-made milk up to 3 days in the fridge and it is so delicious and you can sweeten it however you want. I prefer my milk sweet and add some dates. It is up to you how sweet you like it.

Walnuts are one of the healthiest food. They contains more than 2/3 healthy polyunsaturated fatty acids which are very very good for your body.

You need round about 10-15 minutes to prepare your milk and nothing more than walnuts, water, dates and a laundry bad. You can also use a special nut bag. They are a bit more expensive. I never used a nut bag, I stared with a laundry bag and never changed it because it works very well.
