Homemade Flax Seed Milk
DIY flax seed milk can not only save money but also keep you from using the store-bought kind with chemicals and additives. Adjusting the amount of water used can also produce a thicker outcome giving you a creamier texture to use in place of cream in recipes.
Store in the refrigerator for up to 3 days in an airtight container. Flax seed has a gelling effect so give it a good shake before using.
Use the flaxseed pulp in another recipe but don't throw it down the drain, it has a gelling effect that will clog pipes. Use a tablespoon of dried pulp in your gluten-free baking to aid in binding and boost your fiber.
