VitaMix Almond and nut milk

I recently shared this tip from EC with readers of my

crockpot recipe newsletter, and it's such a good tip I

want to share it with you too. Apologies to those who get

to read it twice. smile.gif

 

Thanks for the Vitamix recipe! Almond milk is

excellent! You can do the same thing with

peanuts and sunflower seeds for milk. If you

make peanut milk, then you add banana and

honey, and it is incredibly d'licious!

 

I've never tried peanut milk, but you can be sure

that'll happen this weekend. My thought is to add

a frozen banana (frozen without skin, of course) to

the mix and end up with a banana shake. Whoa!

 

I guess I should share the original recipe for almond

milk, eh? This recipe could also be created in a good

blender. It was contributed by Kathy J, and here it is

 

Chet,

 

I LOVE my Vita Mix, also! I haven't gotten

too creative with it, but I would love some new

receipes to use my VitaMix for.

 

One thing I do make in my Vita Mix is fresh

almond milk.

 

Take raw almonds (must be raw) and soak them in

water for 1-12 hours. I put some in a little

container, cover with water and put them in the

refrigerator overnight. Drain the almonds, put

them in the VitaMix with a little fresh water

and blend. You can make it as thin or thick as

you desire. You can use this "milk" in any

recipe that calls for milk.

 

If you use a blender or want the almond milk quite thin,

pour through several layers of cheese cloth. You can use

the discarded almond pulp in cookies or whatever. smile.gif

Hey Carol wave.gif

 

Nope, decided not to get a VM, just can't justify the price. But, I thought all y'all VM'ers would like that post on making nut milks.
