Everything you need to know about pea milk (and how to do it at home)


The new vegetable drink that is also good for the planet. Here's what you know, what its properties are and how you can try to prepare it

The pea milk, recently landed on the US market, has already conquered many: we explain why.

Low environmental impact milk

Perhaps not everyone knows that 1000 liters of water is used to produce just one liter of cow's milk.
Here then that gives an idea of Adam Lowry, already co-founder of a famous range of eco-sustainable soaps, the milk obtained from the peas that would do even save 99% of water with a very low environmental impact, even lower than almond milk. Peas in fact grow in areas with frequent rains and do not need irrigation, on the contrary instead of almond plants. A good milk, they say, and also sustainable.

Consistency and flavor

Speaking of taste, now all that remains is to understand how this milk is.
It shows up dense like almond milk and has a sweet taste very similar to cow's milk. And no, if you're wondering, you don't know about peas.
It is not even green as one might think because it is produced with yellow peas and therefore it has the appearance of milk, as we imagine it.

Properties of pea milk

Compared to the other vegetable substitutes of cow's milk, the one of peas seems to be much more rich in properties:
240 ml of pea milk contains 8 grams of protein, more or less the same amount as a cup of cow milk, but twice as much calcium, potassium, vitamin D and a third of the sugars.
Pea protein is also rich in branched chain amino acids (BCAA) that stimulate muscle growth and regulate blood sugar levels.
Pea milk is perfect for those who follow one low calorie diet because, despite being dense, creamy and tasty, it contains fewer calories than skimmed cow's milk and is low in carbohydrates.

How to prepare pea milk at home

In Italy pea milk is not readily available and therefore we can try to reproduce it at home with 1 kg of dry yellow peas, 850 ml of water and a handful of dates to sweeten.
Boil the peas for an hour and a half and then drain them and blend them with 850 ml of water along with two-three pitted dates.
Filter everything with a cotton cloth or a filter and consume it within a week at the most.
