Homemade nut milks are fast and easy-to-make. They are a perfect addition to your morning smoothie, afternoon tea, or even a dessert!
One cup raw (natural) almonds, soaked
3 to 4 cups of purified water
1/8 tsp cinnamon
1 tbsp of unrefined coconut oil
Dash of sea salt
Place almonds in a bowl and cover with filtered water and soak overnight or 6-8 hours. Discard water.
Add nuts, fresh filtered water being careful not to fill your blender past 3/4 full. Add lid tightly and blend on high speed until nuts are completely broken down, usually 1-2 minutes. Strain with a nut milk bag (available online or at health food stores) into a jug or bowl. If you don't have a nut milk bag, you can also use cheesecloth. Rinse the blender and add back the strained nut milk. I then add my cinnamon, salt, and coconut oil with the nut milk. Delicious!
