Making your own nut milk is super easy. As long as you have a blender, you can make nut milk.
Start by soaking 1 cup of your favorite nuts (I prefer almonds or cashews) in filtered water.
When you're ready, drain the water from the nuts and add them to a high speed blender. Add 4 cups of fresh, filtered water to the blender (if you find that the milk tastes too watery, you can lessen this to 3 cups of water, it really is a matter of personal preference).
Refrigerate for a week to a week and a half.
Here are some variations for you to experiment with too:
- add a splash of pure vanilla extract or a whole vanilla bean (cut up first) to the blender for vanilla flavor
- soak 6-10 pitted dates in water (separate from your nuts) and add those to the blender for a sweeter milk
- add cacao powder to the blender for a chocolatey version
Have fun with it and see what works best for you!
