Natural Nut Milk

by Nia
(NYC)

This is my recipe for natural nut milk. I am lazy, cheap and like finding the easy way to make things. In this recipe, I choose to skip the nut milk bag step all together.** Why have leftover pulp that I won't use anyway? You do need to soak the nuts first, and if they have skins, remove them to reduce sediment or pulp.


This is a good alternative to getting Tetra boxed milks. I don't quite understand why my store-bought rice/soy/hemp/oat milk should last me almost two weeks! I feel safer and more natural making my own with just nuts, water and a blender. Easy.

Natural Nut Milk (no bag needed)

Ingredients:
*1 part Nuts
Soak nuts for appropiate time for that type of nut(I like cashews- soaked 2 hours, brazils (some say don't soak, I do for about 8 hours) or almonds- soaked 8-12 hours)

*3 parts Water (Purified is best; adjust amount for desired consistency)

*Pinch of salt (optional)

*Sweetener to taste (If I add sweetener I use agave or dates but, nuts have their own sweetness if you ask me)

Directions:
I suggest sterilizing all equiptment that touches the ingredients so your milk lasts longer. Rinse your nuts well (make sure the last rinse is clear of cloudiness), then soak the nuts for the appropiate amount of time. Blend all ingredients until smooth. It will keep in the fridge for 3 to 5 days.

**I think it's silly to waste money on a nut milk bag when you can use a $2 soup bag from a neighborhood grocery store for the same function.

I'd like to say that the nuts or seeds used for milks like this one should be raw and unsalted.
