nut + seed milk

This one has been a long time coming. My milk recipes have been perfected and I must share the goods with you!

Let’s be clear on one thing, I had stipulations when I decided to do this back in 2018. First, it needed to be made with nuts or seeds that did not require straining, no time for that. Second, it needed to be easy, and third, taste good!

Making milk at home is very inexpensive, easy, and taste so much better than store bought. Even the organic, non-gmo options  at the grocery still have gums and fillers. Two things, I’m certain aren’t needed in my life.

I most commonly make cashew or hemp seed milk.  Lately, I have also been using a mix of macadamia + cashews + walnuts from ALDI and it’s been amaze.
