When I went vegan, my first concern was milk. Well, you have to have your lattes right? So I searched for a nice, cheap and always available substitute.
I found this recipe among may other Ryoya’s recipes I’ve already tried and really liked. His blog is The Peaceful cuisine and you should really check it out! I featured his incredibly delicious Chocolate granola on my blog and whenever I make it, there is never enough!

He never judges, he never scolds. He just lives by his kind example and shares his huge knowledge. So little by little, the word is spreading and more people are getting aware of environmental and health issues that are arising from (non) vegan lifestyle. Here it is, so do check it out, if you didn’t already!
