I thought that you might like to know how to prepare a proper nut or seed milk.

Almond milk tastes great and is actually much healthier for you than dairy milk! It’s lower in fat, calories, cholesterol, and it’s higher in vitamin A, vitamin E and iron.

Raw Nut milks also have all their enzymes intact so they are more bio-available, easily digested and assimilated, and as such will give you way more energy.

Also for those with dairy allergies, you can substitute seed and nut milks in your creations. (Obviously, if you have nut allergies, you won’t be able to use these recipes.)

When blending your almond milks, use a one to four ratio, that is one cup pre-soaked almonds added to four cups of filtered or distilled water .

You may want to play with the ratio in order to suit your personal tastes or for different recipe needs. But, this ratio is a good start, and I know that it turns out absolutely amazing!

Pre-soaking raw nuts with water is definitely necessary.

Use a ratio of at least double the amount of water to almonds. For an example, use one cup raw almonds soaked in two cups water overnight.

Also, dispose of the ‘soak’ water, do not use it in your recipe, for it contains the enzyme inhibitors that are toxic for us.

So, drain and rinse off the pre-soaked almonds before use. (see second video below after that explains how nature protects it’s nuts and seeds)

This video specifically shows how to make raw almond milk but it would be a similar process for any other nut or seed milks.

And there are as many different add on ingredients and mixes that you can think of when creating these delicious and nutritious milks.

Markus Rothkranz explains how nuts and seeds are designed in nature, what they are intended for, and how to overcome nature’s protections and limitations. Nature does seem so amazingly, elegantly balanced, and thought out.

This is a facscinating explanation of how nature has everything perfectly figured out so that the species remains healthy and alive. Nuts and seeds have lots of nutrition, but you shouldn’t just eat them without preparing them properly first.

 

If you are just soaking the nuts or seeds for snacking, here’s a great post about how and why to soak nuts and seeds.
