Homemade nut milk




Ingredients

1 cup nuts (almonds, cashews, macadamias, or try a combo)
3 cups water (add more or less depending on how creamy or thin you want the milk to be)
1 or 2 dates (optional)

Optional flavourings
vanilla extract, cinnamon, cocoa powder, coffee

Method

  1. Soak nuts overnight in water. Or, for a quicker version, soak in boiling water for 30 minutes.
  2. Add nuts, water, dates and any additional flavourings into blender and blend until smooth.
  3. Strain milk into a bowl through a damp tea towel (you can use a nut milk bag if you have one). Squeeze out any excess liquid from the nut pulp.
  4. Pour into jar and store in the fridge. Homemade nut milk doesn’t last as long as store-bought, so use within two days.
  5. Use the nut pulp to make another recipe. Try our Nut pulp bliss balls here.

Tip: Use nut pulp the same way you would almond meal – cakes, muffins and cookies work particularly well!

Variation: For a nut-free version, use oats and make your own oat milk.
