Plant-Based Milk Recipe
 
Ingredients
  • Raw cashews, oats, almonds or a combo of all three
  • 3-4 c unfiltered water
  • Sweetener to taste (ex: dates, honey, maple syrup; start with 1 T or 1 date and add to taste)
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla
Instructions
  1. Choose your base(s) — raw cashews, oats, almonds, or a combination of the three
  2. Soak 1 cup of the base in hot water (cashews: 15 minutes; oats: 30 minutes; almonds: overnight)
  3. Rinse and drain the base
  4. Place in high-powered blender
  5. Add 3-4 cups of filtered water (start with less and add more … it’s a personal preference as to how rich you would like your milk)
  6. Add in sweetener — dates, honey, maple syrup
  7. Add a pinch of salt and 1 tsp vanilla
  8. Blend until smooth, for about two minutes (or as smooth as possible … nut milks will still have a little texture to it)
  9. Strain the liquid through a cheesecloth (or something of the sort). You may need to gather the cloth and squeeze to get all the liquid through. ***NOTE: No need to strain cashew milk. (Keep the pulp & use to make energy balls, cookies or crackers. Adding in the healthy fats gives both good flavor & nutrients.)
  10. Pour into a container and store in the fridge. (Reuse large mason jars, and note that in the fridge it does separate, so you need to shake before drinking.)
  11. Enjoy!
