Clean and simple homemade nut milks are a part of my weekly (sometimes daily) routine because I use my nut milks multiple times a day, and it’s been really challenging for me to find the right store bought option. The options in stores are either filled with extra and unnecessary ingredients that do not digest well (such as thickeners and gums for longer shelf life), and the ones that have minimal, clean ingredients are expensive and go sour very quickly.
“Make it at home” is always my answer when it comes to healthy alternatives that I use on the reg. Something like nut milk, that goes in my coffee every morning, my smoothies, my recipes and sometimes my teas, I am not willing to compromise for. This is something I am consuming more than once per day so the idea of bad ingredients in “moderation” doesn’t really apply because each little bit adds up. Also, since I go through it quickly, it can get very pricey and that’s not an investmint I’m willing to make because I know the milks do not make me feel well.
Cashew Milk is one of my favorite milks to make at home because its delicious and SO easy. Since the cashews have no skin, there is no straining necessary. Just soften your cashews (showing you an instant trick below), blend the cashews with water, and add your flavors. That’s it! It’s that simple and takes about 10 minutes.
Once you go homemade nut milk, you never go back 😉 But seriously, there’s just nothing better than fresh, delicious and SUPER CLEAN milk.
