Homemade Nut Milk

I think I am obsessed.

With a blog called My New Roots. Her amazing recipes and advice on food is so good, I find myself spending hours here reading and at the same time learning how to cook to feed and nourish my body.

These past few days I have been trying her recipe for homemade nut milk, and seriously this is SO easy. I'm not sure about the UK, but I know for definite that any type of nut/soya/rice milk here is ridiculously expensive. This way, homemade means you can make any type you wish, in any mix also and add in anything else you like too...

So far I've made Almond, and drank it alone with a little agave added for sweetness. This morning I tried Hazelnut - and this time added it to bananas for a Banana and Hazelnut smoothie, yum. And I'm thinking also adding in a spoon of raw cacao powder for a Banana, hazelnut and chocolate smoothie - too good!

Once you pass the nuts through a sieve, you are actually left with the nut 'body' as such after, the first time I put this in the bin but after some thinking, why waste? - I've kept the left over hazelnuts and am planning on adding them to the topping for a plum cobbler later today, I think this would be a great addition to crumble topping too?

And please leave me a comment on any variations you try also!

  1. Hey dear Liz!

    okay! Ive done it! I am happy and I enjoyed so much doing it! You know what it means, I am not a cook at all. Kitchen is not my favorite place to be! however, once you shared with us the site "My new roots" I am so excited about food 'n' stuff! It's awesome! Today I shopped some material to be prepared :)! So Thank you so much for your inspiration! I'm motivated than ever! :)

    I did a banana smoothie and besides the banana I put some left overs from the nuts! It's almost a full meal :)! Also, I thought about the nut 'body' that is left after to dry it and then use it as a topping in fruit salads or vegetable salads. what do you think?

    much love, dearest!
    and see you tmrw on the mat!
    yours stef
