Here’s one thing that’s a lot harder to find in stores these days: alternative milks. Sales of oat milk, for example, recently jumped more than 350 percent as coffee shop regulars, cut off from their baristas, started making their brews at home.
Here’s the good news: You don’t need the grocery store milks. I’ve been experimenting around the pantry during quarantine, and one happy discovery I’ve made is that plant-based milks like soy, almond or oat milk are easy to make. And, they can help you cut down your personal carbon footprint.
