Healthy Nut Milk Recipe

Today is National Milk Day - but of course, I want to switch it up, and offer healthy alternatives to traditional dairy milk! Whether you have a hard time digesting dairy, you’re transitioning to a more plant-based diet, or you simply don’t care for it - nut milk is a deliciously healthy substitution!

It may sound daunting to literally make your own milk, but I promise, it’s actually really simple - you will need a Vitamix, though!

Finely Nourished Nut Milk Recipe

Fresh Nut Milk

A great substitution for dairy milk!

This is my go-to recipe:

You’ll need:

  • Two handfuls or soaked hazelnuts (soaked overnight) 

  • One small handful on hemp seeds 

  • One small handful of sunflower seeds

  • 4 cups of filtered water 

  • Pinch of salt (salt makes it last longer in the fridge)

  • Cinnamon to taste

*If you like, you can add vanilla extract and or a pitted date for sweetness.   

Simply blend all ingredients together in the Vitamix, and then strain with a nut milk bag.  

Pro Tip: save a pulp for later, and you can use it in so many ways! 

Green Tip: I tend to stay away from almonds because almond trees take a ton of water! Every little bit helps, so swapping out almonds when you can is always a good idea if you’re looking to be more eco-friendly!
