Homemade Nut Milk

Is there anything more delicious than fresh creamy nut milk? 

Well, maybe chocolate? 
In which case, fresh almond/cashew milk hot cacao might just be my dream come true!

How to make Fresh Almond Milk: 
  • Soak 100g organic raw almonds in a bowl of water for 12-24 hours. 
  • Strain water from almonds after 12 + hours. 
  • Blend 3 cups of filtered water with almonds. 
  • Use a nut milk bag or muslin cloth to strain the pulp from the liquid. 
  • Optional: add 1 dessert spoon of honey/rice/maple syrup and blend again.
  • Optional: add a teaspoon of vanilla powder and blend again. 

How to make Fresh Almond Hot Cacao 
  • Warm-up almond milk 
  • Add a generous teaspoon of raw cacao powder 
  • Add sweetener of choice to taste if you feel it needs it
  •  Optional: Add 1 drop of doTERRA wild orange essential oil 
Do you guys remember Options Orange Hot Chocolate?? I used to have one of those sachets every night when I was at Uni. That's before I had a clue! Well, this is the healthier and yummier version to that throwback! I'd be happy to send you out a sample of Wild orange if you're a chocolate orange lover too! (Peppermint works well too for the after-eight fans!) 

What to do with the left-over almond pulp? 

No worries, my friend, I have got you covered! 

The pulp is dry, fat-less, fibre leftover from straining the almonds. 

Combine (in a bowl) the: 
  • Almond pulp 
  • 1-2 tablespoon of liquid sweetener of choice (honey/rice/maple syrup)
  • 1-2 tablespoons of raw cacao 
  • 1 tablespoon of tahini 
  • 1 tablespoon of coconut oil 
  • 1 tablespoon of raw cacao nibs 
  • Optional:6-8 drops of doTERRA wild orange essential oil 
Mix together and roll into balls. Keep in the fridge for 1-2 weeks. 

Making fresh cashew nut milk is even easier than almond milk. 

Simply soak cashew nuts for 10 minutes + then blend 1 cup of cashew nuts to 2 cups of fresh water and hey presto, it's ready!
