Buy raw nuts. (Difficult with cashews)
Soak the nuts overnight. (a cup)
Drain and rinse the soaked nuts.
Remove skins from dark skins nuts by rolling between tea towels - hazelnuts/brazils I am looking at you.
Blend the nuts with fresh water. usually 4 cups water to one cup nuts
Add lecithin if you like (emulsifies the milk to stop it separating, plus b12 )
Strain the nut milk.
Sweeten, if desired - agave, honey, cinnamon, vanilla
Chill, drink, enjoy.
Wash, rinse, repeat once a week for nut milk happiness - milks last up to 5 days in the fridge.
Can keep more concentrated in blending stage them to make a cream, then add hot water just before you drink to make hot lattes.
Flavours - get creative. Cacao, matcha, turmeric (with black pepper), fruit.
Hemp hearts and oats don’t need soaking if you are in a hurry, though better with 30 mins.Read More
