Nut milk is a raw food staple. It is fairly quick to make, delicious as a chilled drink, and used in many recipes. It tastes way better and is healthier than packaged store-bought almond milk. No additives! You control what goes into it.
1 cup raw almonds
(you can also make the same recipe with using other raw nuts and seeds)
Blend the nuts and water in a blender for around 30 seconds. Pour the mixture through a fine mesh bag or juice bag*, or into cheese cloth and squeeze to strain it and separate the pulp from the milk. Almond milk is good just like this, but adding some sweet and salt makes it even better. Put the milk back into the blender and add 6 dates and 1/4 teaspoon of salt. Taste it, if you like it sweeter keep adding dates 2 or 3 at a time until it is as sweet as you would like. You can also use one or more tablespoons of honey to sweeten it instead of the dates.
You can make a nutmilk from sesame seeds too. It is super rich and delicious, full of calcium! Using hulled seeds makes a lighter taste, while unhulled has a bit of bitterness and seeds should be soaked and rinsed before using. Add some carob or cacao powder to make it taste like just like halvah, a Middle Eastern sweet treat.
The left over pulp can be made into cookies or crackers in a dehydrator, or made into many kinds of confections by adding such things as: raw carob powder, honey, chopped apple, dates, cinnamon, banana, coconut - then made into small balls or bars. Try some experimenting with it!
You can also use nutmilk with lots of different fruits to make delicious smoothies. Try: apples, blueberries, raspberries, pineapple, peaches or mango.
