Nut Milk

I make my own nut milk. It is simple to make if you have a Optimum or good quality blender. Nut milk bags are easy to purchase at a kitchen shop or on-line. They have a great selection on Etsy. It only takes a few minutes to make enough to last several days.

I use it to make chia seed pudding and thin salad dressings. I even put it in pestos instead of oil to create the best consistency. And of  course it is delicious straight form the glass with a cookie or poured over your breakfast cereal. You can even use the pulp for making cookies and other sweet delights. I keep the pulp in the freezer for use later. Keep some of this home made nut milk in your fridge and if you do not sweeten until you use it you will find endless uses for this nutrient rich nut milk.
