Creamy, silky, milk is often a staple in many of our diets! Here's a recipe to make a plant-based version of this delicious drink! Making your own plant milk has so many perks! It's far more nutritious, and the taste is so fresh! This is a super flexible recipe that can be modified to fit your own personal taste. Switch out different types of nuts whether it be almond, cashew, macadamia, or pecan! You can even use oats instead of nuts to make oat milk!
Yield: 4-5 cups
Prep Time: 5 min (not including overnight soaking time)
1 cup raw nut of choice or oats (I love to use cashews!)
3 cups water
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/8 tsp salt
A dash of maple syrup (optional)
Place the nuts and 1 cup of water into a bowl and put into the fridge to soak overnight.
Transfer the pre-soaked nuts, along with the water, into a high-speed blender. Pour in the remaining 2 cups of water, vanilla extract, and salt. You may also add maple syrup or other sweeteners such as honey or stevia for your preferred taste. Blend until the texture is silky and pulp is minimal or barely visible.
Filter the milk through a milk bag to remove the pulp. For extra nutrients, don't filter the milk and immediately transfer to an airtight pitcher or liquid container. Store in the refrigerator for up to one week.
