Nut based milks are such a wonderful replacement for dairy! They are very simple to make at home, and the best part is that they are fresh, raw, and don’t contain any added sugar or preservatives! The most common is undoubtedly almond, but you can also whip up delicious milks using other nuts such as Brazils, cashews, hazelnuts, macadamias or pecans. The basic technique remains the same: blend (soaked) nuts with water until completely dissolved, strain and enjoy!
- 1 cup almonds, soaked overnight
- 3-5 cups of water – depending on how thick you like it
Blend in a high-power blender such as the Omni V 3HP blender until nuts are completely broken down. (About 1 min. or so)
Strain mixture through a nut milk bag, a paint-straining bag or even a panty hose.
Refrigerated, almond milk will keep for 3 to 5 days.
