NUT MILK
 
Ingredients:
  • 1 cup of raw almonds, cashews, etc. (I’ve even made this with 1/2 almond and 1/2 cashews)
  • 3 cups of water
  • Seeds from 1 vanilla bean (I didn’t have any so I left it out)
  • 1 teaspoon of cinnamon (optional)
  • 2 dates (optional)
 
Directions:
Soak nuts in water for anywhere between 2-8 hours. (fyi. I’ve forgotten about it and soaked way longer.)  Add almonds, water, vanilla, cinnamon, and dates to blender.  I used my beloved Vitamix, but any blender should do.  Blend until smooth.
Strain through a nutmilk bag or cheese cloth until all the liquid is out. I help it along by gently squeezing the bag. Use as you would any other milk product.
