Here is a great alternative to cow, soy and rice milk , which is tasty and really easy to make yourself. You can drink it straight, add to smoothies, and it's excellent on cereal!
If you are not into almonds you can also use cashews, pecans, pine nuts, walnuts, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, hemp seeds, or any other nut or seed you can think of.
Step 1: Materials:
1 cup skinless(blanched)* almonds (or nut/seed of your choice) - whole, or ground
3 cups water -filtered (plus water to soak)
sieve or cheesecloth
pitcher with lid (to store milk when done)
*If you can only find almonds with the skin still on, your milk will have little bits of almond skin floating around. If this bothers you, you can blanch them.
-pour boiling water over almonds, to cover them
-after ~1min drain, rinse under cold water and drain.
-pat dry, and slip the skin off.
