If you’re wondering how to make homemade nut milk the recipes below are for you. In general, to make nut milk all you need to do is soak 1 cup of nuts overnight, discard the soaking water, rinse the nuts, then add the soaked nuts and a couple of cups of filtered water to a high powered blender. After that simply blend, then strain out the pulp.
When making your own dairy-free nut milk, you can add dates to sweeten it, or honey, maple syrup, or even stevia, if you’re cutting back on carbohydrates and sweets. I also like to add [vanilla powder] to most of my nut milks, as well as a pinch of [salt]. For more specific amounts of ingredients click on any of the recipes below. The easiest of the recipes is my Cashew Milk as it does not require any straining whatsoever. The cashews blend right in and you have an incredibly smooth, creamy texture!
After you make one of my easy nut milks, use the pulp in one of my fabulously easy nut milk pulp recipes.
