For the past several years I have been avoiding cow’s milk when possible. I’ve been enjoying non-dairy milks with my coffee, smoothies, and granola, and enjoy the taste more than dairy. My skin thanks me since dairy consumption was causing breakouts and I am FAR beyond my adolescence. Bye bye dairy! In addition, one of my clients inspired me to make my own nut milk – something i’ve thought about for awhile but was too intimidated to give the milk-making a try. I’m excited to report I faced my fear and will never look back. The taste is unparalleled and I don’t have to worry about any of the fillers, including carageenan, from the “ready-made” packages.
The leftover mixture in the nut bag from the recipe can be made into a flour for gluten-free baking (using a dehydrator) or can be used “as is” in a smoothie. I enjoy using it in a smoothie for extra protein and fiber.
So, here is the super simple recipe…please give it a try and let me know how it goes.
