A lot of people love having a milk substitute – it might have something to do with being a baby or a kid growing up in a home where milk was a part of the daily routine. Nut milks are basically just nuts and water that have been soaked, rinsed then blended and strained.
yields: 1 litre
prep time: 8 minutes (plus 8–12 hours soaking)
cook time: -
What you'll need
- 1 cup activated almonds (or you can use other nuts such as macadamia or walnuts) soaked in filtered water overnight or at least 8 hours
- 1 litre filtered water
You can use the nut waste to make breads or put into smoothies to thicken ‘em up or feed ‘em to the pigs. As for the milk, well you can use it in any number of ways that normal milk would be used… on Paleo muesli, in your chai tea, in chia puddings, to make ice creams, to be used in smoothies and loads of different ways or just on its own as a treat.
