SO HOW DO YOU MAKE IT?

You might think making your own nut milk would be difficult but it is actually quite simple.  So get out your raw almonds and cashews and get ready to make fresh nut milk for your morning coffee or cereal.  Store-bought nut milks are good but the homemade fresh stuff is way better.  Here is the recipe to do it yourself at home.

Ally’s “Everyday Nut Mylk” – Almond/Cashew

½ cup raw almonds

½ cup roasted cashews (preferably dry roasted with no added salt) or you can use the same amount of raw cashews

2-4 medjool dates

4 cups filtered water

vanilla extract to taste

Soak the almonds overnight and the cashews for about 2-3 hours. Rinse them off when done soaking. You can use the discarded soak water to hydrate your plants!
Blend everything until smooth.
You can drink the mylk as is or you can strain it through a nut mylk bag. The separated pulp can be used fresh or frozen and then defrosted for use in baking recipes for cookies, cakes, crackers, bread, macaroons, etc.
The most important step: have FUN! Play around with different nuts and different nut combinations to find your favorite flavor. My preferred ratio is 1 cup dry nuts : 4 cups water : 2 dates. Ideas for things to add: cinnamon, matcha powder or turmeric for a hot or cold latte, rose water, maca for a malted flavor and a great caffeine-free energy source!

Hazelnut Creamer

½-¾ cup raw hazelnuts

1 cup water

1-2 medjool dates

Soak the hazelnuts overnight. Rinse them off when done soaking. You can use the discarded soak water to hydrate your plants!
Blend everything until smooth.
Strain through a nut mylk bag. The separated pulp can be used fresh or frozen and then defrosted for use in baking recipes for cookies, cakes, crackers, bread, macaroons etc.
Ideas for things to add: extra dates and raw cacao for chocolate hazelnut milk, great to add to coffee!

Macadamia Alfredo Sauce

¾-1 cup raw macadamia nuts

1 cup water

¼ cup nutritional yeast

garlic powder to taste

pinch of salt and pepper

Soak the macadamia nuts for 2-3 hours. Rinse them off when done soaking. You can use the discarded soak water to hydrate your plants!
Blend everything until smooth.
Ideas for things to add: fresh herbs like basil or parsley, soaked raw cashews, probiotics or lemon!
