I just tried the flax milk recipe with the substitutions I had to make. This is what I came up with that tastes really good, but I may be making further adjustments. I will know more about that after it is cold, and the thickening is finished. I am very excited about being able to have a milk that is enjoyable and SAFE!!
I only made one-half a recipe until I get this worked out! I used 2 parts flax, 1 part each of chia and hemp seeds. (I will add more of these next time if this batch doesn't have as much "body" as I would like.) I added 1/2 cup fat free, salt free cottage cheese, a handful of organic dried, sweetened cranberries that were soft and fresh, about three chunks of dried pineapple, a little vanilla (a black dot for me), sea salt - (until it tasted right!), and I used a little veggie glycerin for an added sweetener. As I kept adding things until they tasted "right," the blending time was longer than recommended, but I did not do any straining at all after eventually blending the whole thing for about five minutes. It is perfectly smooth enough for me - I just don't like to waste anything that is so wonderfully good for me! Besides, I like things simple!


this is just amazing.. i just can't imagine it coming out like milk.. but what do i know until i try!      I can't have cottage cheese.. possibly that helped stablize it alot...  i wonder what it would taste like in tea.  What do you suggest to replace the cottage cheese?    this combo sounds more like a milkshake!!!

BluesSinger - I wonder if the only reason that we don't get cottage cheese is because dr. D tested it on regular cottage cheese tat is sold in grocery stores? I can purchase pressed, organic cottage cheese with nothing added - no gums or fillers! I eat it on occasion as I crave it and seem fine with it.

Dianne and BluesSinger, do you get any soft cheese, such as ricotta, paneer or . . ?

Or yogurt or kefir?

No, it isn't anything at all like a milkshake! It is really and truly milk! Chia will help stabilize anything! Just add more than I did to replace the cottage cheese. I really like the pineapple and cranberry combo. The milk has a light, pinkish tint to it because of the cranberries. I am going to add some lemon extract to my next batch. I can't tolerate lemon right now so I will try a little extract and see what happens. I was amazed at the almost white color it was until I added the cranberries!

Fresh Buffalo Mozzarella is quite soft and could be blended instead of the cottage cheese.

It wouldn't curdle the cottage cheese part of the *milk* would it?

Ricotta and paneer are black dots. I do get mozzarella and feta cheese as superfoods. The neutrals are all  harder cheeses. We do have a place to purchase homemade mozzarella cheese that is still steaming when you buy it but I don't think I'd go to the trouble to go buy it. It's a certain time of the day and not convenient. I get chia seeds as a black dot as well and I try to not consume black dots as well. Thanks for the suggestions though.

I will only use a little since lemon itself is bothering me so much now, but you may have a very valid point! We'll see what happens!
