Can someone please tell me how to make and use nut milks? Please include all the things I need. I have a Vitamix, but need some direction, please.
I'm ready to try something new as I enter week three of more and more raw foods in my life! :cheer:

I have only ever made seasame milk. Soak the seasame seeds for about 4 hours. rinse 1x. put them in the vitamix with about 2x water. blend until smooth. you have to double strain or not it is bitter. I had honey for sweetness. Sooo good. Most use a nut milk bag to strain. Right now I just use a kitchen strainer.

Pretty much make them all the same ~ soak, rinse, put in VM, add water, strain. The bigger/harder the seed/nut, the longer to soak. I also use a strainer instead of cheesecloth/bag, etc. If it's too think after blending, add more water. I never sweeten mine yet you can add honey, stevia, agave, dates or whatever you prefer.

I am a huge fan of almond milk.... I have a juicer that grinds nuts for making nut milks... its best to soak almonds over night, rinse them well before making your milk.... the recipe for a blender is : one cup of soaked almonds and 3 cups of water. Put in blender until smooth...strain milk and enjoy. I never used a blender to make it....but I would maybe start with 2 cups of water, and add more as needed...I like my almond milk creamier, not watery... I use medjool dates to sweeten it up a bit.
( add one or two to blender)
good luck on your raw diet and enjoy your nut milk, its delicious!

Thanks so much!! I'm very excited to try this! I can use any nuts for these milks, right?
Ok, now how about nut butters? Can I make those in my Vitamix, too? What do I need to do for that and how do you use them?

I never make nut butters ~ too much like work. BUT, you can make nut milk if you have nut butter!
