"Hmmmm, So many nut milk
recipes, so little time!"
Nut milk made with almonds was one of the first homemade, non-dairy, recipes I tried after finding out my son had a dairy allergy.
He didn't like the soy or rice milks you find in supermarkets so I was looking for some kind of dairy alternative.
Unfortunately he didn't like this either... until I added some cacao powder (or chocolate powder)! He loved it after that.
He doesn't mind the plain stuff with his cereal, but won't drink it alone unless it's chocolate.
Who knows, maybe I'm just spoiling him!
I've listed several of my favorite "milk" recipes below. Each one has it's own unique flavor.
Get crazy and add some flavor!
Nut milk tastes great on it's own, but you can get creative and add a little flavor to make it taste totally different.
Try add a couple of tablespoons of carob or cacao powder to make a tasty chocolate nut milk.
Add a pint of strawberries to make delicious strawberry milk.
Add a couple of vanilla beans to really amp up the vanilla flavor!
Add a banana or two to make a creamy banana milk. Or add a banana to the chocolate milk to make a yummy chocolate banana like shake.
Almonds are a good source of vitamin E and are about 20 percent protein, so they are also very filling.
To give you an idea of how to strain the milk, I added a YouTube video of Karen Knowler making Almond Milk.
Edgar Cayce stated that eating 4 to 5 almonds a day can prevent cancer!
Place almonds and water in a blender and blend on high speed.
Strain mixture through a nut milk bag or a couple of layers of cheese cloth into a bowl.
Rinse blender and add back in the strained liquid.
Add date or nectar and blend.
Brazil Nut Milk
Brazil nuts are a great source of selenium. They have about 2500 times the amount of selenium than any other nut.
Brazil Nut Milk Selenium is a powerful antioxidant that helps protect against disease. Selenium also slows down the aging process and
boosts the immune system!
