Basic Nut Mylk

 

Almond. MylkAlmonds have many benefits that I outline in the  post called ‘The Almighty Almond’.  Almond mylk is a tasty nutritious drink that is very versatile and delicious.

Ingredients:
1 cup almonds, cashews, pecans or your favourite nut
Tiny pinch of sea salt
5 cups water (4 cups if you want it creamier)

Procedure:

  • Place all ingredients in a high-speed blender and blend until smooth
  • If you do not have a high speed blender, soak the almonds overnight first
  • Strain through a nut mylk bag (this is optional when using cashews)
  • Add to your favourite smoothie recipe or drink as is.
  • Will keep for at least 4 days refrigerated but you will need to shake it up before use

Adventurous Variations:
-add 1 vanilla bean or 1 T alcohol-free vanilla extract
-sweeten with ½ cup pitted dates or ¼ cup agave syrup or pinch of stevia
-add 3 T raw cacao powder
