Homemade Nut Milk

It’s hard to find Whole30 compliant nut milk. Most in stores have additives and added sugar. I’ve been playing with testing out different nut milks.

Here is what you need to make your own. The ingredients for vanilla or chocolate nut milk are not compliant with the Whole30, 100% cocoa is but no sugars are allowed. You can leave the sweetener out and make flavored, compliant milks

For the milk you need:

Nuts, filtered or bottled water, cheese cloth, bottles or cups

To flavor:

Vanilla bean paste, cocoa, sugar/agave or any other sweetener (not compliant with Whole30) or any natural flavoring you want to experiment with

To make the milk:

Take a cup of nuts (I tried pistachios and cashews) and soak them over night in water.

When they’re soft, drain and put them in a blender with fresh water.

After they are a fine paste, take a cheese cloth and strain the residual nuts out.

Sweeten or flavor the nut milk if you like and store in the fridge.

If you want chocolate flavored

Put 3-4 Tblspns baking cocoa or melted baking cocoa and mix with the sweetener

Stir or shake

Drain again with another piece of cheese cloth to get all extra chocolate or sweetener out.

If you’re using hard baking chocolate, melt it on the stove and sweeten, then mix in the milk.
