If you cannot digest dairy milk, then I have a super easy and quick nut milk recipe for you.     There is a wide variety of alternative milks available on the market but the problem is that they are often a blend of sugar, stabilizers, and emulsifiers which are unnecessary and can cause digestive problems for some.
