Making your own nut milk is super easy, and it is super nutritious and delicious! Nut milks contain no lactose, saturated fat, cholesterol, processed ingredients and additives, such as artificial sweeteners. There are so many options to create tasty and nutrient-dense unique milks: you can mix nuts, seeds, whole gains and even fruit to create your own version! My favorite type is almond milk! Almond milk is a good source of calcium, fiber, protein (6 grams of protein per ounce of dry nuts), magnesium, potassium, zinc, iron, vitamin E and much more…
- 3 cups filtered water
- 1 cup soaked almonds
- For sweetness: Liquid stevia (100%pure stevia), stevia powder, raw honey, or pitted dates to taste
- For extra flavor: 2-inch vanilla beans or 1tsp pure vanilla extract, and cinnamon to taste.
- Soak the nuts overnight, soak your dates in the filtered water for 1 hour, blend everything for about 1 minute at a higher speed, strain the milk with a nut-milk bag or fine strainer, store your milk in an air tight container, such as Manson jars, for up to 6 days. Enjoy!!!
