make your own milk

There are a variety of different plant based milk out there. Most of them have been processed a lot and one can only guess how much or how little vitamins are left. So if you wanna be sure to have high quality vitamin and mineral rich milk – make your own!

Ingredients

  • water
  • organic nuts
  • dates
  • pinch of salt
  • vanilla

Every kind of nut works, but I prefer cashews and almonds. When you make the milk with cashews you don’t have to strain the milk after blending. Almonds on the other hand leave small chunks in the milk. That’s tasty too, but it’s not necessarily how you want your milk.

The ingredient-ratio depends on your desires. If you want a thick milk use less water and more nuts, if you want to have a sweet milk use more dates etc.

Instructions

  1. Soak the nuts for at least 10 minutes in water (over night would be ideal).
  2. Mix all the ingredients with a high speed blender.
