Strain-Free Nut Milks

Strain-Free Nut Milks

Making homemade nut milks is one of the best things you can do for your wallet and your body, buuuttt it does take some time and some clean up, plus there is  little bit of waste that goes along with it which I do not appreciate (there is  of course things to do with the pulp but it is quite frankly, just annoying). The straining of the milk is what makes it messy and harder. again, not that hard but if you want to whip up a quick hot chocolate or golden latte or you are in a pinch and need to some milk for in  recipe or something, straining will slow ya down. So here are a few nut milk options that will save you from straining through a nut milk bag (this is the one I have fyi). You can of course strain these anyways to get any impurities out for a SUPER smooth milk but not necessary. Feel free to add spices, more sweetness, or any flavors you like to these. I have suggestions in the recipes. You can multiply these recipes as many times as you need if you are meal prepping or baking a large batch of something. One patch yields about a quart so keep that in mind.

Cinnamon Cashew Milk

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup raw cashews

  • 2 tsp cinnamon 
  • 3-4 cups water, divided (the amount of water you need depends on the consistency you prefer)

Directions:

  1. In a high speed blender (I have this Vitamix), add in the cashews, date, agave, cinnamon, and 1 cup of water just to cover the nuts
  2. Start to blend and slowly bring up the speed 
  3. Blend on high for at least 2 minutes but you can run it longer. Remember, the longer you blend, the smoother it will be
  4. Pour out into a jar and store in the fridge for 5 days. Drink it straight like this, blend in a smoothie, use it in baked goods, over cereal, etc
