The following recipe post was created by Emily of Eat or Drink. Eat or Drink is an allergy-friendly food and lifestyle blog with a focus on eating and living without gluten, dairy, soy, eggs, or peanuts. Emily is a consumer of JOI and quickly fell in love with our product. With her passion for recipe creation Emily wanted to create something special just for JOI.
What really got me excited about JOI was all the possibilities. Apart from the obvious delicious nut milk it can make, I saw it as a jumping off point for so many vegan or dairy free recipes. I quickly put it to the test in my standard Alfredo sauce recipe. Normally I would have to fuss around with soaking nuts overnight and then make sure my blender got them completely smooth. With JOI, I just added a couple spoonfuls and out came delicious, savory, creamy vegan goodness. From there, I decided to try something a little different, and oh boy is it good.
This Vegan Pumpkin Alfredo Sauce is incredible. JOI makes it so incredibly creamy, and of course easy to make. I had to stop myself from eating it all with a spoon before I even cooked pasta. And while it does go perfect with pasta, it’s really great on anything. You could even grab a bag of chips, and boom, it’s a delicious dip. This Alfredo Sauce has a warming combination of flavors between the garlic, pumpkin, nutmeg, and pepper. To round it all out and to add a cheesy tang, I added a little bit of apple cider vinegar. Trust me, you’ll want a double batch of this sauce.

4 Things That Set JOI Nutbase Apart from Nut Butters—And Make for a Better Nut Milk
Let’s take a look at four things that set JOI nutbases apart from nut butters—and why JOI is better to make, better to drink, and better for you.
Comparing Almond Milk: JOI Almond Nutbase Vs. Grocery Store Brands
You’ve decided to make the switch to plant milk. Whether better health is the goal, the traditional stuff doesn’t really get along with your body, or you just like the taste, it probably hasn’t taken you long to figure out you’ve got a lot more decisions ahead of you to find your plant milk. JOI is here to make that decision a bit easier for you.
The Skinny Truth About Fats
With all the “low-fat” and “fat-free” products on the market, it’s not a surprise that most people have a negative association with fats—whether it’s about gaining weight, raising cholesterol levels, increasing risk for heart disease... talk about a bad reputation. All of which is true, but only to a certain extent. The fat we eat, known as dietary fat, is one of three essential macronutrients in a diet. Carbohydrates, proteins and fats are the three musketeers of nutrition and must stay together through all your meals, not one can be excluded from the dinner party... (we're looking at you, keto diet).
