View Full Version : need help with almond milk/butter
08-12-2006, 08:51 AM
I would like to make almond milk and butter but I only have a blender and an "old school" cyntrifugal juicer. Can't afford or find the good juicers.
Is it possible to make milk and butter with either one of these two appliances? I'm afraid of having to buy tons of expensive raw nuts only to waste them with appliances that don't work....
If I use the "old school" juicer should I add a bit of water while I add the nuts, or how does that work?

The milk can be made in a very basic blender. I just put a handfull of soaked and peeled almonds and about 4 dates and some water in the blender and drink the entire thing.
Some people do not bother to peel the almonds and strain the milk through a cheesecloth instead.
I have never made almond butter.

One cup of soaked almonds with 3 cups of water, along with dates or the water from soaked dates to taste...blend, strain with cheesecloth!
And the way I make almond butter is blend up my almonds in a FP or blender...then I place in a container, then pop it into the freezer overnight. I then put it back in the FB with a stream of agave, almond oil and water. I like mine creamy so I use more water. Then I add salt to taste...and it keeps for about a week.

You definitely can make almond milk with your blender. I make my almond milk with one cup of almonds, three cups of water, one vanilla bean and a tablespoon of honey. It is delicious!! I make a really nice nut milk shake using almond milk. The recipe is two cups of almond milk, one banana, one orange, a handful of strawberries, one vanilla bean [no need to use if your almond milk contains vanilla], a teaspoon of honey and icecubes. It takes like a strawberry shake.
