How To Make Almond Milk
So this video is a real quick and is super easy. Almond milk is a good alternative if you are looking to have diary free alternatives or have or suffer from an intolerance to lactose.
just a few pointers as I feel that I may have rushed through it in the video….
- Soaking the nuts is very important. You need to let the nuts whichever you choose to use sit for at least 8-12 hours in filtered water this allows the nuts to swell, soften and make them easier to digest. this is because nuts and almonds in particular release an enzyme when soaked. If this step was skipped you might suffer from having your milk taste acrid. Soaking allows the nuts to be easier all round on the digestive tract and be more palatable on the tongue.
- The nuts need to be washed as when they are soaked the enzyme is released in to the water n which it has been soaking you do not want this in your milk. The nuts should be rinsed in filtered water to stop hard water pollutants from tap water entering the milk. This is because there is no preservative in the finished product and we want it to last as long as possible.
- I use 200g of almonds per litre of water this equates to 1 part nuts and 4 parts water, roughly. I weren’t the best at maths at school!
- Keep the meal in your freezer there will be recipes on my youtube channel that will show you what you can do with it- you wouldn’t have this luxury if you bought one from the shop! Another bonus!
Enjoy your nut milk! Once you realise how easy it is you will wonder why you ever bought it in your local supermarket.
