Made almond milk! It was very exciting.... haha the simple pleasures in life
I have a question does everyone drain the pulp? I thought the pulp would still be nice to have in the milk does anyone do this?
Also if you dont have the cloth to drain it what else can I use?

[SIZE="5"]I love to make Nut milks. There are so much better then milk. Try some Macadama nut milk, that is really good too.
Oh you can get some nut mike bags for this place that work so good.
I use mine everyday now and all the juices and things taste so much better. Doug in Calif...:)E]

when i make nut milk i use knee highs (clean and neve worn) i think it works better than a cheese cloth.
yeah for you! A small plastic strainer would work!:D

thanks for the advice!
But does anyone still keep the pulp in the milk lol

save the pulp... sweeten it into cookies/cakes/cinn rolls, or make bread or crackers with it. don't throw it awaay.. oh yeah - you could make a cheese or dip from it. :)

I used the pulp to make a hummus from a recipe I found on this site. Basically, use it as you would either zucchini or garbanzo beans and add tahini, lemon juice, garlic, and some cumin and you're set.

Some people like to leave the pulp in, especially in milkshakes. It's a matter of personal taste.
With almonds, I strain out the pulp, but with macadamias and cashews, there really is no pulp to strain out.
Forget nut milk bags, I just use a piece of cotton or muslin cloth (wet and placed into and over a jug) or even a cotton pillow slip! I think nut milk bags are a bit of a waste of money.
Enjoy the simples pleasures of your tasty nutmilk!

why strain it? i blend it in my vita mix and then put it in the fridge.
in the morning i shake the bottle to remix the tiny bits of almonds and milk and pour it on to my grawnola. its great.
if you want the pulp for something you strain it but... i like it mixed into the milk it makes it tastier.
easy peasy. LOL

can you freeze the leftover pulp if you don't know what to do with it right away?

^^^ Yes, you can freeze it. Makes great dehydrated cookies. :)

I rarely strain my nutmilks. Usually making 'mock mochaa' though so added fiber is okay by me.

when I made nut mylks, I used paint strainer bags. (unused, of course)
I got the idea from someone on this board. they cost about $2. and are reusable. home depot and lowes carry them.
