RECIPE // homemade nut milk

Hello everybody! During one of my last dumpster dives, I found several kilos of nuts, perfectly fine and not expired or spoiled. One of the best ways of using a lot of nuts is by making them into milk, and this is how I usually do it. I also really want to point out that under non-dumpster diving circumstances, I usually prefer oat milk, because oat has the lowest carbon footprint of all kinds of milk. The highest belongs to cows’ milk, as the dairy industry has a huge impact on the planet, and although rice, soy, cashew, and almond has nowhere as high an impact, it could definitely still be better. But if you have lots of nut on your hands (I am sorry but I have to say it: that’s what she said) this is a great way of using them.

Step 1: The first thing you should do is pour the nuts into a container and add water, the picture is a good indicator of the ratio, let the jar sit overnight, or for at least 6-8 hours. Step 2: Pour the nuts and the water into a blender, blend for a good 20-30 seconds. Step 3: Take a bowl and a sieve (you can also use cheesecloth) and pour the milk through to divide the liquid from the pulp. Step 4: Save the pulp for baking, it’s great in pancakes. You can also freeze it and use it later. It can also be turned into a nut spread. Step 5: When the milk and pulp have been divided, you’re done. Store in a jar or bottle in the fridge. The milk can stay fresh for 4-5 days.

btw the amount of milk you get from this recipe is more or less the same as the amount of water that you use. The reason why my jar has so much less is that I forgot to take the after picture and I had to take it several days later lol. I just wanted to clear that haha.
