Recipe from my book Juice It, Blend It, Live It: Over 50 Easy Recipes to Energize, Detox, and Nourish Your Mind and Body
Nut and seek milks are so easy to make at home. Delicious as a base in your smoothies or cereal, or even on their own, they're full of protein and fiber. The ones in stores contain extra additives,- none of that here. It's time to finally start making it yourself.
- 1 cup raw almonds
- 3 cups filtered water
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 tablespoons coconut
- palm sugar
- 1 pinch sea salt
- 1 nut milk bag & a blender
Soak your almonds for 8 hours or overnight (this is important for breaking down enzymes!). Rinse them, then place them in the blender with the water and blend for a minute or two. Take your nut milk bag to put it over a large bowl. Slowly pour the contents of the blender into the nut milk bag and squeeze the bag to get out all the liquid. Put the liquid back in the blender and add the other ingredients. Put in an airtight container (mason jars look great on Instagram) and keep for up to 3-4 days!
Looking to make things a bit more exciting? Try experimenting with superfoods and flavors like cinnamon, maca or even cacao.
