DIY Nut Milk!!!
So, I normally always buy my almond or cashew milk in the store, unsweetened, but full of preservatives and other sketchy ingredients, so, recenetly, I was inspired to make my own. And now I’m so sorry I didn’t start sooner! It couldn’t be any easier. Here’s how it happened!
What you need:
1 cup raw almonds or cashews (I did both kinds at the same time)
Nut milk bag or cheese cloth
How to do it:
Start by putting 1 cup of almonds or cashews in a jar
Cover completely with water
Let them soak for 8-12 hours. (Eek! I know it’s long, but so worth it for a creamy delicious milk)
After you have so patiently waited, rinse the nuts in a strainer
Add your nuts and 3 1/2 cups filtered water in a blender
Blend for about 4 minutes until creamy and completely blended
With almond milk, you’ll have to pour milk into the nut milk bag and squeeze out all of the liquid.
With the cashews you can normally just drink it the way it is after it’s blended!
Store in a jar for about 4 days to a week! It does go bad quickly!
*Don’t throw away the leftover almond bits. Set your oven on its lowest setting, dehydrate for about 3 hrs until completely dry & you’ll have almond meal!!
