How to Make Your Own Nut Milk


How to Make Your Own Nut Milk

Make the best nut milk ever. No preservatives. 25% almonds. So easy. You’ll wonder why you didn’t do this before! You choose the nuts – you can even use rolled oats to make oat milk if you prefer. You will need: nuts, water, salt, a professional strength blender and a nut milk bag

  • OmniBlender
  • Nut milk bag
  • Wire strainer
  • Large pyrex jug (or similar)
  • Glass bottle (for storage)
  • 1 cup raw nuts of your choice (or a mix of nuts (try throwing in a few Brazils to make sure you get some selenium))
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 4 cups water (plus extra for soaking the nuts)
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla essence (opt)
  1. Soak overnight; 1 cup raw nuts of your choice

  2. Discard the soak water, then put the soaked nuts, 1/4 tsp of salt, vanilla essence (if using) and 4 cups of water into your Omniblender. Put the lid on.

  3. Blend for 60 seconds.
  4. Put the nut milk bag into your large (at least 1 litre capacity) jug. Pour the blended almond mix through a sieve. Press the solids with the back of a spoon. Hang the bag to let it drain. Squeeze to get as much liquid out as possible.

  5. Transfer to a glass bottle and refrigerate. Use within 3 days.

TIPS: freeze your nut milk in ice-cube trays. Freeze the nut meat and use to make almond-based cookies or cakes when you have enough saved up. Nothing gets wasted.

1 cup of almond milk, made as above, will give 12.6 g of protein.
