Nut Milk

By Valerie Blanks

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup of cashews or almonds
  • 3 1/2 cups of filtered water
  • *stevia, vanilla, cinnamon to taste
  • 1 high-speed blender

Directions:

  1. First, you must soak your nuts for a minimum of 8 hours or overnight. This allows the vital nutrients in the nuts to bloom. Once soaked, rinse the nuts and place in your high-speed blender. Next add water to the blender, as well as your sweetness and flavoring, if you are using any. Set the blender on high and blend until you get the consistency that you desire.
  2. You can drink the milk like this. It will be slightly thick like a milkshake. Alternatively, you can strain the milk through a nut milk bag. You can purchase this cheesecloth-like bag at any health food store. Once strained, you will have a very smooth and beautiful nut milk, ready to put in cereal, coffee or consume by itself.
  3. The average shelf life for nut milk is 3-5 days in the refrigerator.
