Mixed Nuts & Seeds Milk

Mixed Nuts & Seeds Milk
Home made nut milks are so easy to make, it is silly to buy them, especially as you wouldn't add any ingredients that make you wonder why the heck they're in there ;-) Nor would you ever be able to find a nut milk that is made from soaked nuts and seeds - or at least, I haven't found those ;-) (A short explanation about soaking you can find here). Plus you can tweak the flavour to your liking!
No nut milk I make is ever exactly the same, but this recipe just about covers it. (If you wonder what to do with the pulp; I use it in raw cracker recipes, bread recipes, a little bit in dog food (no macadamias though!), (raw) cookies, and more).
For 3 to 4 cups of nut milk (depending on how thick you want it, you can start with less) these are the amounts you'd need: (activated and dehydrated or activated and still wet) :
Cuisine: vegan, blender
Recipe type: Nut milk
Prep time: 
Total time: 
You need
  • ¼ cup almonds
  • ¼ cup walnuts
  • ¼ cup hazelnuts
  • ¼ cup pecan nuts
  • ⅛ cup pumpkin seeds
  • ⅛ cup sunflower seeds
  • 4 cups of water
To do
  1. add them to your blender, with the water
  2. blend for 30 seconds, that should do the trick
  3. place a nut bag in a jug and pour the milk in it
  4. then squeeze as much water out as you can (aaaarggghhh!!!!!)
  5. you can flavour the milk with a tiny pinch of himalayan rock salt and a tiny bit of sweetener, or just leave as is till you need it. I use it as is mostly, even for my cappucino, which I give a sprinkle of cinnamon and cacao anyway.

  1. I think it is always better to soak any seeds or nuts before making a nut milk….or cracker, or whatever. It tastes so much better, and the nuts are activated. I’m wondering why this recipe did not call for them to be soaked.. thank you.

    • Hi Kate! Thanks for your comment, and you are totally right! I forgot to mention that, because I soak and dehydrate all my nuts as soon as they enter the house. I’ll change that, thanks for the heads up :-) Happy cooking!

    Hello!

    Definitely going to give this a go – I have not seen a mixed nut and seed recipe! Can you do anything with the left over nut and seed pulp? I don’t like food waste.

    Thanks so much for your card! Here’s to the start of my transition to veganism 💕

    • Hey Gabriella,

      Aplogies for my late reply! Do ask away, please! It’s not all that hard, but I guess one needs to get new ideas and learn a few tricks 😉
      The pulp you can use when you make cookies, dehydrate and use as a sprinkle on your salads or any other dish (nice if you mix some herbs and spices through) or you can just stir it through your soups or stir fry’s.
      You can tweak amounts of nuts and seeds as much as you like, you’ll end up finding your favorite combination :-) Have fun!
