Ulu Hye – Mylk Base

I recently purchased some Nut Mylk Base from Ulu Hye to try for my family. As non dairy milk drinkers in our household, we were going through so many cartons of organic Almond or Coconut Milk. I not only wanted to be more eco friendly with using less wastage, but I wanted to be more cost efficient too. The Ulu Hye range is great value for money as well as one jar makes 10litres. Plus you can use the jar again as it’s the great size to take your breakie to work in. The almond milk we were buying from the health store cost us a fortune, even with organic ingredients the ingredients list was still not great. So I was excited to find Ulu Hye after trying it in my Secret Organics Box.

As you know I love to create recipes with different products, if I love them I love to showcase them with you all. So here are 5 ways I have loved using the Nut or Hemp Mylk…

But first a little bit about the the peeps behind this amazing biz….

Heidi Peuten and Vasia Vogias are the founders of Ulu Hye and their signature product Nut Mylk Base. Nut Mylk Base is a concentrated nut milk, allowing people to make fresh nut milk in the comfort of their home and in only 1 minute. 1 jar makes 10 litres of milk, reducing landfill of 10 cartons, minimising the damaging effect on landfill that long life cartons are currently contributing. Nut Mylk Base and Hemp Mylk Base use Australian Certified Organic ingredients, where possible, and has been holistically created bringing a dairy alternative that is not only better for you but better for the environment.

Founded in the Northern Beaches of Sydney, Heidi and Vasia created this concept with a strong focus on health and sustainability.

Both Vasia and Heidi would go through cartons of non-dairy milks per week and were disturbed by the amount of waste they were contributing together. As a result, they created a Mylk Base that they could then add to water, blend and enjoy as a delicious non-dairy milk whenever they wanted. With backgrounds in business and naturopathy, the duo decided to share their passion for health and the environment, through launching products that can contribute to reducing our overall carbon footprint on a global level.

Five ways I have loved to use their Nut or Hemp Mylk…

1. To make bliss balls. I just added a few tablespoons to my favourite cacao blissball mixture. YUM 😋.

2. In smoothies. I just mix in a teaspoon of the hemp or nut Mylk base and just add my favourite smoothie ingredients with some filtered water.

3. In my daily coffee. I make up a few litres of Nut Mylk in the fridge so it’s good to go. Today I made an iced latte with it. Delish!

4. To add to my overnight oats base mixture.

5. In our favourite meals. Here I added it to our daily pancakes and also made healthy Mac and Cashew Cheese.

Peanut Butter + Maple Cookies

Peanut Butter + Maple Cookies

I made these cookies for breakfast as I wanted to have a bit of a change from the usual smoothies and porridge. The cookies are completely egg and dairy free. I got them out the oven and within literally 30 minutes, the tribe and I ate them all. None left haha! I guess they were a winner. They were chewy on the outside and soft on the inside, delicious!

What is in my toddlers lunchbox? Feat. Australian Certified Organic.

What is in my toddlers lunchbox?

 

Feat. Australian Certified Organic.

 

Packing my toddlers lunch box daily can be a bit of a challenge as Cruz (nearly 2) can like something one day and then change his mind the next and say his famous “no” to what I have on offer. So I like to mix up his lunchbox with a few different yummy goodies and options but also like to offer him some of the same foods daily even if he doesn’t eat them because tomorrow he may haha.

My top 5 must haves for new mummas Feat. Organic Mums & Bubs.

I have been lucky enough to write a blog for one of my favourite Australian organic maternity and baby shops – Organic Mums and Bubs. The store is filled with absolutely divine 100% certified organic, eco friendly and ethical products which are suitable for pregnant and nursing mummas and their new bundle of joys.

Expecting a new baby can be lots of fun. Preparing and buying things for yourself and your little ones arrival is all part of the excitement of this new journey. There are so many great products to choose from on the market but at times can be quite overwhelming when deciding what you and bub require. Organic Mums and Bubs is one of my favourite online stores that caters for a wide range of all your mumma and bubba requirements, which is why I am putting together a blog post sharing with you the 5 products I love most from this amazing company.

I know we get super excited about spoiling Bub, but my first few must haves are just for mumma.

Comfortable Nursing Lounge Wear

The first few days depending on how you birth you could be in hospital. Followed by spending a lot of time at home getting to know your newborn. During this time just wanted to live in comfortable clothing. Little Winter Rose is now five weeks old and I still like to be comfortable to lounge around at home. If you choose to breastfeed to you will want comfortable clothes that you can nurse your newborn in. I really think that wearing comfy, soft clothing helped me to feel relaxed and comfortable in my own home and when heading to the shops.

I wear my Grace Bamboo Maternity Top and Essential Bamboo Maternity Pants together all the time around the house. The clothes are so comfy I even sleep in them and I can do my post natal yoga practice in this outfit too. Because it doesn’t look to pj like I can also wear out to the shops too and still feel good. The material of both the top and the pants feels great on my skin too, made from a mixture of organic cotton, bamboo viscose and a little spandex for stretch. I highly recommend this duo and packing it in your hospital bag if you are planning to have a overnight stay in hospital.

So comfy around the waistline and I love that the pants have a string to pull in as your postpartum stomach goes down.

Reusable Bamboo Nursing Pads and Wipes

Not only are the Milk Maid Mumma Nursing Pads kinder to the environment, I found they are so much more kinder to my breasts too than the disposable ones. They are made from bamboo and feel luxe against the nipples especially when my little Winter Rose is cluster feeding and my nipples feel grazed. The sit well in the bra and don’t scrunch up like the disposable ones do as the day goes on. I love seeing all the pretty prints on my washing line too. All nursing pad bundles come with a wet bag too, to keep the breast pads safe in the washing machine. Great for storing them in your nappy bag too.

The Milk Maid Mumma Reusable Wipes are also a great alternative to your everyday baby wipes we carry in our nappy bags. I have also found these wipe cloths great as a burping cloth alternative too. The wipes also come with a cute wet bag to store the wipes in.

Both of these Milk Maid Mumma products are kind to your wallet and are really reasonably priced, making them a perfect baby shower gift for any expecting mumma.

100% Organic Cotton/Bamboo clothing for your Newborn

Of course baby clothing is part of my list for new mummas as it’s so fun buying outfits for your new bundle of joy. I personally find it more fun than buying for myself these days. When your newborn arrives into the world their skin can be very sensitive. It’s great to purchase some clothing that is gentle and kind to their babies skin.

Organic Mums and Bubs provides a wide range of adorable organic baby clothes that are suitable for your newborn no matter what the occasion. Weather you just want to dress your bundle of joy up for visitors, a special occasion or just for them to relax at home in this boutique has you covered. Some of my personal favourites from the site is the Bubbazimbi range and My Lilly Ann hand painted clothing.

 

A comfort toy or blanket for your baby

It is up to you as a parent if you choose to use this method. I believe that giving my babies a comfort toy or blanket has really helped them to settle them to sleep no matter where they are put down to rest. A little tip though is to have a few comforters on the go. I always have one in the cot, one in the pram and one in the car. That way if one is misplaced there is always back up available.

I love Natures Purest – Striped Knitted Bunny Soft Toy and Natures Purest – Striped Knitted Baby Blanket.

Organic Skincare for Mother and Baby

As a mum I really want the best for my babies. I am amazed that so many baby skin care products are filled with nasty harmful chemicals and an ingredients list that goes on forever with words I cannot even say. I am a registered nurse and when studying anatomy and physiology I learnt that the skin is the largest organ in the body. It absorbs want we put on it so quickly into our bodies. Our new babies skin is so precious so especially in the little ones early days I think its important to be aware of what I use on their skin. So I keep my babies and my own skin products to a minimal or organic.

I love Aromababy Barrier Nappy Rash Cream Balm I have used this since Cruz was a newborn its such a great product. It also doubles as a great lip balm haha.
