Recipe type: Milk
Serves: 3-4 cups
Ingredients
  • 1 cup nuts, seeds or grains
  • 3 cups filtered water
  • OR for chia, flax or sesame milk:
  • 4 Tbsp. seeds chia, flax or sesame
  • 3 cups filtered water
  • Optional ingredients:
  • 3 Tbs. sweetener (such as powdered coconut sugar, pitted dates, raw honey, maple syrup, or stevia to taste).
  • 1 Tbs. coconut butter (for texture)
  • 1 Tbs. non-GMO soy or sunflower lecithin (to emulsify and add creaminess)
  • 1 tsp. natural vanilla extract (enhance flavor)
  • Pinch of Celtic sea salt (enhance flavor)
  • Fruit to create flavored milks
Instructions
  1. Soak nuts, grains, or seeds for desired time. (See last link at end of article). Soaking removes enzyme inhibitors, improves digestibility and nutrient bio-availability, and helps everything blend more easily.
  2. Drain nuts, grains, or seeds. Rinse and then place in high speed blender with 3 cups filtered water. Add any optional ingredients, and blend on high until fully liquefied, about 1 minute.
  3. Strain with a nut milk bag, if desired. Milk will keep for two to three days stored in a sealed glass jar in the fridge.
  4. Homemade milk will separate; just give it a shake before pouring.
