Things are getting nutty tonight with award-winning actress, writer, & producer Ally Iseman making Antoinette Westcott milk her nuts on One Veggie At A Time. Ally has been vegan for 12 years, and she shares an interesting showbiz story with us. Ally realized while she was playing a horse rider on TV, that horse riding is not vegan. She had grown up with horses and loved horses growing up, but it wasn’t until someone pointed it out to her that she made the connection. She decided to accept the role because she knew that the horse would be ridden anyways and she would be able to do it in the most gentle respectful way. She also has shares how to travel compassionately and sustainably on the show she is developing called, “The Road Best Eaten.”
Ally has experimented with different kinds of nut milk, and she says that mixing the nuts together in one milk has a superior taste. She starts by soaking the nuts and the more dense nuts need more time to soak. Then she blends water, the nuts, some dates for sweetness, and a dash of vanilla for flavor. After its blended Antoinette helps strain it through a nut strainer bag to separate the milk from the grainy nut pieces. This recipe makes about 4-5 cups of milk. Ally explains that you can keep the strained nut pulp and use it to bake too! Next, Ally makes us her macadamia brazil nut alfredo sauce. She adds nuts water, seasonings, lemon juice, and nutritional yeast to make this creamy concoction. Get nutty at home and make your own delicious creamy vegan creations with Ally’s recipes below!
