5 Good Reasons To Make Your Own Nut-Milk (+How To Do It)
To make your own nut-milk you need a reasonably good blender. A high-speed blender will be the best choice. And a nut milk bag. These can be bought at the organic shop or health shop. Alternatively you can use a clean dish-washing towel in a sieve.
Place nut-milk bag
- 1 cup of nuts, almonds, hazelnuts etc. soaked in filtered water for at least 8 hours, the drained
- 3 cups of water
- pinch salt
- some sweetener of your choice if desired
- 1 additional cup of water
Blend the nuts with approx. half the amount of water until they are ground very fine.
Add the remaining water and keep blending for a little longer.
Place nut-milk bag (or sieve with clean dish-washing towel) over a bowl and pour the blended mixture into it.
Then take the nut-milk bag and gently knead it until most of the fluid is pressed out. Then press it a little more tightly but not too hard (in my experience your nut-milk bag might not last that long if you put too much pressure onto it).
Pour the finished nut-milk into a glass jar. Add the additional cup of water into the nut-milk bag and let it soak a little. Then repeat step 4.
Pour into the jar, cover with lid and store in fridge. Shake well before using.
