Vegan recipe for yummy nutty milk from Hollan Hawaii! It is so simple to make your own milk. You literally blend water with nuts or seeds and strain. I like adding in a little maple syrup for sweetness. I use Almond Milk as my main milk. So anything you use milk in, I use almond milk in. I find it versatile and that my body loves it and my recipes come out great. Almonds are naturally alkalizing, so… so is this. You can change the recipe to suit your taste buds; more almonds, more water, but this is how I like it. I use a nut milk bag to strain it-you can find it for sale at most health food stores. If you can’t-a paint strainer from a hardware store will work or just use a clean dishtowel to strain it. Vegan cooking often calls for milk, and this is how I fulfill:
Make 2 qts
5 minutes total time
1 cup organic raw almonds
7 cups water
2 tablespoons maple syrup (optional)
In a Vitamix or blender, mix almonds with water, gradually taking it to high. You want to pulverise those almonds. Next, strain through nut milk bag into large bowl. Transfer to a pitcher and store in fridge. Will last 4 days in your fridge. You can replace any nut or seed for almonds. At the cafe we make Mac Nut Coconut Milk for all our acai bowls and smoothies. I have tried and love cashews, sesame seeds and coconut, and they all are tasty in theirre own way. Have fun and find the one that makes your tastebuds happy. There are many things you can do with the leftover pulp, however, these days I compost it.
I want to let you in on a little secret. Smoothies alone can change your health. It is so simple, it tastes yummy and it can be the difference between your system working and not.
I notice such a difference in my body and day whenI have one for breakfast, or as a snack.
Are you willing to give it a try?
Give yourself 2 weeks with adding in a smoothie and let me know how you feel.
Heres a recipe that allows you to add anything.
Monkey Milk is just bananas and non dairy milk whipped up in
a blender. It’s simple yet so delish. The first time I had it was at small
little raw cafe in California and I was hooked. Being that we always have
bananas in Hawaii, it is a staple at breakfast and it serves as the base for
endless smoothie possibilities. Sometimes I add Kale, other times, berries. I
also add cocoa powder to make it chocolatey and no one has ever been mad at me
for adding in peanut butter…
Make 16 oz.
2 minutes total time
1 cup organic sliced frozen bananas
1 cup non dairy milk
In a Vitamix or blender mix bananas with milk, starting on
slow gradually taking it to high.
I really do love blueberries. Whether enjoying them fresh or in this delightful smoothie, they are a norm in my life and self care. You see, blueberries are full of antioxidants and they give me a burst of energy. Try it for yourself and see. I also drink a lot of smoothies and I love to have ones that are creamy without the bananas. This has become my favorite creamy bananaless (yes that’s a special Hollan word) smoothie and it’s in the cookbook! You can preorder that HERE.
In a blender add: 1 cup frozen blueberries 2 frozen coconut cubes 1 date (not frozen) 1 cup non dairy milk
How to Make:
