Nut and Seed Milks

Almond Milk

Serves 2

1/2 cup almonds
1/2 cup pine nuts
1 cup spring or filtered water

Soak the almonds and pine nuts for 12 hours. Put in a blender and pulverize. Add the water gradually, while continuing to blend on high. Strain through a fine strainer or cheesecloth (you can use the almond pulp as a body scrub). This milk will keep for 3 to 4 day. It is great on hot grains such as quinoa, buckwheat groats, millet, or amaranth. You can thin it with more water, if desired.

Quick Tahini Milk

Serves 1-2

Tahini is a butter made from hulled sesame seeds, usually used as a spread. It also makes a very nutritious milk that is high in calcium and protein.

2-4 Tbs tahini (raw)
1 cup water

In a blender, combine 2 tbs of the tahini with the water. Blend thoroughly and taste. Add additional tahini and blend again for a richer milk. This milk will keep for 3 to 4 days.

Fresh Silky Almond Milk

Makes approximately 1 Quart

This is a quick way to make a rich, creamy nut milk that can be used in any recipe calling for dairy. We mix it half and half with raw green veggie juice for a refreshing breakfast drink. It’s also a great way to make a soup, shake, or pudding creamy.

4 cups fresh raw almonds
Water
Stevia, to taste (optional)

Soak the almonds in a bowl of water to cover. Drain and place into a blender until it is one-third full (about 2 cups), then add water to fill the blender. (If you want a thicker almond cream, do not use as much water). Blend on high speed until the mixture is white and creamy looking. Pour through a fine-mesh strainer (I use a clean white nylon knee-high) into a bowl or pan. Squeeze with your hands to get all the liquid out. Add a bit of stevia to sweeten, if desired, or drink/use as is. Almond milk will stay fresh for about 3 days in the refrigerator. It will separate a bit, but all you need to do is stir or shake it before serving.
