Get your love for all things pumpkin this holiday season with these delicious and easy vegan recipes for homemade pumpkin bread and a pumpkin spice latte courtesy of Take Two Barleymilk developed by Take Two’s Registered Dietitian and Chef Mitch Thisius. These recipes are not only plant-based — they’re also great for the planet as well! Take Two Barleymilk is the first plant-milk to be made from an upcycled ingredient: barley.
Barleymilk is a substitute for traditional dairy in the kitchen. The non-dairy milk can be used in savory and sweet dishes, as well as in baking, cooking, blending and drinking.
