How to make your own milk alternatives; The lazy guide

How to make your own milk alternatives; The lazy guide

There is a plethora of reasons you may be wanting to learn how to make your own non-dairy milk. Cost, allergies, foodie status, clean eating, ect…The basic process is the same with just a few adjustments for each type.
There are affiliate links in this post. If you choose to purchase from them it helps support my family in a small way. Please see my bio for full disclaimer.
You will need mesh produce rinsing bags or nut milk bags (I giggled because inside I’m an adolescent child). A blender/food processor. A container for the finished product, glass is best but use what you have.
For tree nuts you will need to pre-soak the unroasted (aka raw) nuts in clean water for a few hours, preferably overnight. Drain and rinse the soaked nuts (still giggling) and throw them in the blender, cover with fresh water and blend the crap out of it. The longer the blending time the richer the result. Strain through the bag into the container and store in the fridge.
With nuts you want roughly a 2 to 1 ratio. 1 cup of nuts to 2 cups of water in the blender.
For unsweetened coconut 1.5 to 2 cups of coconut to 4 cups of water in the blender. Coconut milk may be easier to make with very hot but not boiling water.
For 1 cup of hemp hearts you need 3-4 cups of water in the blender.
For coconut and hemp milk you do not need to pre-soak before the blending step. Other options include oats, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, ect.

NOTE; this doesn’t work with chia seeds because they swell into a jelly like texture in water, jelly milk is not terribly pleasant in my mind.
If you are like me and hate waste you can save the nut or seed pulp after straining and dry it on very low temp in the oven. Woo 2 for 1 products! Almond milk and flour in one go. Have you made your own alternative milks? Which ones have you made and what did you think of it?

P.S. Apologies for all the amazon links. I wanted to make it easy for anyone reading. If this apology is still here then they are not affiliate links.

    Awesome blog! Do you have any helpful hints for aspiring writers?
    I’m planning to start my own blog soon but I’m a
    little lost on everything. Would you recommend starting with a
    free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There
    are so many choices out there that I’m completely confused ..
    Any suggestions? Bless you!
