Why milk from nuts or seeds?
Nuts and seeds are full of fiber, omega-3 essential fatty acids, vitamins and minerals. Check this out:
1 oz Almonds have:
Fiber 3.5 g
Protein 6 g
Omega-3s 2.5 g
Calcium 75 mg
Magnesium 76 mg
1 Tbsp Hemp Seeds have:
Fiber 1.6 g
Protein 5.3 g
Omega-3s 7.2 g
Calcium 7 mg
Magnesium 70 mg
You can make them at home or buy them from the store. I highly recommend looking for a nut milk that does not have any fillers or preservatives like the brand Califia. YUMMY!
Here is a recipe for almond milk:
Soak 1 cup of almonds in water overnight in your refrigerator for 2 days — the longer you soak the almonds, the creamier the milk will be.
Drain and rinse the almonds from their soaking water.
Place the almonds and 2 cups of water into a blender and blend on high speed for 2 – 3 minutes.
Pour the blended almond milk through cheese cloth into a storage jar.
Add a little vanilla, sweetener or cinnamon as desired.
Fresh almond milk only lasts for a couple of days in the fridge so drink up
