Goods to Know Making Milk

Making raw vegan milk at home is so simple, I suggest everyone give it a try as it’s one of those really liberating raw food techniques that easily expands your repertoire.

Start with something simple like chia milk since the seeds only need to soak for 15 minutes, or hemp seeds which don’t need any soaking.

Nut and Seed Milks

1 cup raw nuts OR seeds
4 cups filtered water
vanilla and stevia to taste (optional)

Rinse the nuts and soak overnight if necessary, see soaking chart. Blend the nuts with the 4 cups of water (more or less for desired creaminess) until smooth, strain through a nut milk bag* and you’re done! Pretty must the same deal as blender juicing.

Keep milk in a sealed glass container for up to 5 days in the fridge. Hazelnut milk is my fav, it’s delicious with Sprouted Quinoa Cereal. Oh and freeze the pulp and use for raw desserts.

*shhhh I’ve even used a clean nylon stocking in a pinch.

So I made my first batch of almond milk. OMG it’s delish. Lisa you would be so proud of me, I even froze the pulp to use at a later date for something. Not sure yet but I will use it, I am thinking of using it for my morning cereal oatmeal I also made (ots, goji berries, raisins and sliced almonds and all organic) with almond milk tomorrow morning. Thank you ladies for bring healthy into our lives. xoxo

I AM so proud of you! It’s great right, and not scary at all! Okay so you can freeze it too, so if you just want to make a few batches at once it’ll be easier than running to the store for milk! And cheaper. And better for you. And the list goes on. xo
