Megan’s Almond/Brazil Nut Milk

June 6, 2008

Unsweetened almond milk can be found at Trader Joe’s or your local health store. But there is nothing quite as delicious as freshly made, completely raw, and preservative-free nut milk made in your own blender. If you have the time its surprisingly easy to make.

  • 1 cup raw almonds (soaked overnight) OR 1 cup raw Brazil nuts (soaked 15 minutes)
  • 3-6 cups of filtered water (depending on how thick you like your milk)
  • 1/4 cup raw pitted dates
  • Pinch of sea salt
  • 1 Tbs. lecithin granules
  • 2 Tbs. coconut butter
  • 1 Tbs. vanilla extract

Place the soaked nuts and the water in a blender and blend on high until smooth. Taking a cheese cloth or bag (you can get them pretty inexpensively online or at a cooking store), pour the mixture through the cloth into a separate container. Make sure to squeeze all the liquid out of the cloth with your hands, so you get all the milk out. Note: For a finer milk, use 2 cloths or bags layered on top of each other.

Rinse out the blender, and put the strained ‘milk’ back in the blender. Add the rest of the ingredients, and blend on high until smooth

Fresh nut milk keeps well in the fridge for about a week. Use in place of dairy milk for all purposes. Yum!
