Milk Replacements: Put Down That Sugar-Laden Rice Milk and Make Your Own Healthy Organic Nut Milk at Home!

This recipe comes from one of the many dedicated mothers I have the fortune to know.

1 cup of organic raw nuts (avoid peanuts, use any nuts you or your child like: almonds, hazelnuts, Brazil nuts, cashews, etc.)
4 cups filtered or spring water
1 teaspoon of pure vanilla extract (read ingredient list carefully, as may be a hidden source of gluten)
4 teaspoons of raw honey or pure vegetable glycerin

Blend nuts in blender to a fine powder but don’t let them become a paste (you can use a small jar attachment that comes with some blenders for the nut blending instead of the regular large pitcher and make two small batches if necessary). Scrape out all nuts from blades and transfer to large pitcher. Add water, vanilla and sweetener to ground nuts and blend until smooth. If you desire a smoother milk, strain through a fine sieve (usually unnecessary unless the nuts have skins).
