Nut milk recipes are really very simple to make and they can taste delicious too. We can make really thick or thin drinks. This all comes down to whether we keep in or strain out the nut pulp.
The best masticating juicer for the job is something like the Slow Juicer from Hurom, or the Omega VRT330HD. The way that this type of machine works ensures that the nut oils and water base that you use are blended together very well.
Just thinking about nuts and water, you might not be all that excited. The base of the drink is of course nuts and water but we can all some other flavors too. Why not try making a nut milk at home to see how you like it?
If you can afford it, I recommend the Omega VRT350HD vertical masticating juicer or a high speed blender such as the Vitamix.
Using a blender, you can make either a thick or thin drink depending upon whether you strain it or not. The juicer will automatically remove the nut pulp though.
If you want a fuller bodied drink, using a blender would work out best. If I want more of a meal, I prefer to use my blender and consume everything.
Before you start making a nut milk drink, it is useful if you have soaked the nuts to soften them up. Using cashew nuts is pretty good because they don't need to be soaked for long at all.
Cashews and dates make a decent tasting drink. Grab a handful of cashews and a few dates, put them in a jug and add some coconut water or plain water.
It might be a good idea to quickly rinse the nuts beforehand. If you're using your blender, just add everything at once. Blend for less than one minute for a lovely thick and creamy nut milk smoothie. That's all there is to it.
