Amp Up Your Beverage Game With These 4 Flavored Nut Milks

You need two ingredients to make nut milk: nuts and water, that’s it. This is the base for any nut milk recipe, but you can get creative and flavor them by adding different sweeteners or spices. Some people are resistant to making nut milk at home because they think it involves too much work. Don’t believe the hype because making nut milk is very easy and delicious.

How To Make Nut Milk:

Step 1: Soak the nuts in water for a couple hours and then strain them. Add the soaked nuts and water to the blender and blend until smooth.

Step 2: Pour nut milk through a cheesecloth or nut milk bag into a glass jar. Store in the fridge and consume within 3 days. That’s it.

Why Avoid Store Bought Nut Milks?

Store bought nut milks stay fresh for a lot longer than homemade nut milks. The reason for this is because they contain added chemicals, preservatives, flavors, thickeners, stabilizers, and emulsifiers. You don’t need guar gum and lecithin in your nut milk. They simply homogenize the nut milks so that the liquid doesn’t separate. When you make your own nut milks, you’ll notice that they do separate, but all you have to do is give them a good shake before you drink them. A good shake is better than unnecessary and unhealthy ingredients, right?

Because the sole combination of nuts and water may yield the most appetizing flavor, you can add other ingredients to enhance the nut milk. The recipes in this article show how easy it is to make flavored nut milks. We hope you like them.
