It is a common misconception that milk cannot be substituted in mac and cheese. Many people think they should use some sort of dairy-free alternative instead because of lactose intolerance or allergy. However, almond milk can often work as an effective substitute for milk, but not all varieties are equal.
Some brands have too much water content so it will make your sauce watery and thin out your pasta with no taste to it at all!
We recommend using unsweetened vanilla almond milk if you want the best results when making macaroni and cheese.
What Is Almond Milk?
Almond milk is a dairy-free alternative to cow’s milk and it’s fairly easy to make. There are many ways you can turn almonds into almond milk, but the most common way is by soaking raw or roasted almonds with water for at least eight hours.
Then, blend them together in a high-speed blender until they become smooth like liquid. Some people may also add some salt or sweetener to their recipe if desired as well.
