To celebrate National Nutrition month, we found the perfect gadget to promote healthy living: The NutraMilk, an appliance that will help you create different types of milk and butter using any nut, seed or legume you like. Aside from some of our favorites – peanut butter, almond and coconut milk – the appliance also whips up dips and spreads, smoothies and other treats. For those looking to get creative, there’s a NutraMilk book with up to 200 recipes geared not only to the health-conscious but for those who are dairy-free or follow a vegan, paleo and gluten-free diet, $449.00. Available at the thenutramilk.com/shop. (As a special to our readers, apply discount code LongIsland50 for $50 off.)
