Title: ***CREATIVE NUT MILK RECIPE***
Post by: KateVonS on March 29, 2010, 10:11:25 PM
This is fast and delicious!

What you need:
-Blender
-paint cloth strainer (purchased at hardware store), or a fancy cheese cloth...

Description:
Making nut milk at home is essential. All nut milk purchased from grocery store that isn't labeled "unsweetened", has a copious amount of cane sugar added. If you make it at home, you can add your own sweetener such as stevia, honey, agave or dates.

It is completely optional to add a sweetener to your nut milk!

Recipe~ Almond/sesame seed/ginger/lavender milk

2 cups soaked almonds
1 cup soaked sesame seed
1 T size chunk of fresh ginger root
1 T fresh lavender
1/2 t vanilla powder (you can add liquid pure vanilla) powder is alcohol free*
1T Raw Agave

Add all ingredients to blender and fill with purified water, one inch from full. Put lid on and blend away!

Place cloth strainer in a container (jar or pitcher), fold cloth over opening and begin to pour milk slowly. The cloth strainer will fill up with small bits of ingredients, so you will need to empty it.
 
NOTE: squeeze the cloth strainer, so that you are getting all the milk into container before you empty it. Empty the strainer in a bowl, set aside.

Continue pouring milk through strainer, until all the liquid is in container.

NOTE: In the bowl set aside with the nut bits, you can save and use this nut "flour" in cookies, muffins or breads on the dehydrator.

DESIGN YOUR OWN RECIPE!!!
varieties:
nuts (hazelnut, walnut, pecan, brazil, pine nut, almond)
Seeds (hemp, pumpkin, sesame)
Spices (cinnamon, nutmeg, cocoa)
Sweeteners (honey, maple syrup, stevia, agave, dates)

Get creative, add a fruit!

Strawberry, raspberry, blueberry, blackberry

Get freaky, add a booster!

Maca, kava root or matcha

That's all for now, enjoy!!!

Hi Aly,

I just read Mike Adams' hilarious satire about the Susan G. Komen Foundation (the link below), and there was an ad for vanilla powder!

I'M SO GLAD YOU ALL ENJOYED!

I LOVE IT TOO!

For vanilla powder, ask at local health food stores if they carry it. It's normally in the bulk spic section. The last time I bought mine was in Montana. It's a bit expensive, although, it's pure and alcohol free.

Enjoy!

Kate:) :)
