Delicious Nut Milk Recipes

Almond Milk



Nut milk made with almonds is a great non-dairy, non-soy alternative and it's super healthy! Almonds are a good source of vitamin E and are about 20 percent protein, so they are also very filling..

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 cup almonds, soaked for 8 hours or over night
  • 3 1/2 - 4 cups purified water,
  • 3 Medjool dates or 2-3 Tbsp raw honey
  • Pinch of Himalayan Sea Salt
  • 1 tsp natural vanilla extract (optional)

"Edgar Cayce stated that eating 4 to 5 almonds a day can prevent cancer!"

Directions:
  • Place almonds, dates, vanilla and water in a blender and blend on high speed.
  • Strain mixture through a nut milk bag, cheese cloth or fine sieve into a bowl.
Preparing the seeds or nuts for best nutritional value before blending:

Soaking nuts makes them easier to blend and also releases enzyme inhibitors and will make it more digestible. Most other nuts generally require 8 to 12 hours of soaking for optimal digestion. Almond is commonly used for making nut milk as it tastes great and is alkalizing. Nut milks usually keep in the refrigerator for 2 to 4 days. If you freeze them they can keep longer. Yummy additions include raw cacao, cinnamon or brown rice protein powder.
