PKM SABBaS5 years ago
Seconded- what is nut milk, for that matter? If you used carrots would you be enjoying the vegetables of your labour?

you blend nuts of choice with water, vary amount of water to taste and consistency, a little gives nutcream, more gives nut milk. also can use apple juice etc in place of water. use cream in place of cows milk cream, blend with a capsicum to cream cosistency and use on pizza in place od cheese. yummy

Nuts and water in a blender then strain through a nut milk bag. If the bags were a more reasonably priced I might give it a try but at $25 for four, forget about it.

I looked on ebay, and you can get 5 for 13.40... better deal than the other, eh? At least this way's not triple figure like the info-mercials!

Looks like a couple of layers of cheesecloth or a cotton pillowcase/kitchen towel will do just as well.
tons on ebay, just google nut milk bag
...I did... Tip: Turn ON Safe-search...
LOL
eeeeewwwwwwwww
HAHAHAHA

Looks like just a fine-mesh nylon bag. I found them over at rawguru.com for an insane $25 for four of them. It appears they're also available in cotton if, I suppose, you don't like synthetic fibers. Seems like a good candidate for an instructable if you can find the material.
You can also find mesh bags at the dollar store
Not this fine. The mesh looked to be more like heavy weight panty hose material. Unless there's a different kind of mesh bags at your dollar store the mesh bags I've seen are more like netting, not filter material.

What a great idea! I had no idea that you could make juice that way! Also, check out http://www.greenplanetparadise.com and check out their nut bags for sale.

which blender is this, i want to buy one.
This is the magic-bullet blender. They retail for about $59.99 at Walmart and feature a 12A motor. The selling-point for them is that the blender blade is actually the cap of a small reusable cup, and you get several cups instead of the traditional top-loading blender where you get one pitcher with the blade at the bottom. This means that when you are done blending, 1)the blade is actually removed from the food receptacle, and 2) it, is now a the top of the container, allowing for easy removal of obstruction or the like without having to dump out the contents first. There is also a battery-powered Bullet blender for when the occasion calls for it. It is not nearly as powerful, but good enough for smoothies at the food court, etc.

What is a nut milk bag? I didn't know you could milk a nut
I have no idea either. I have heard the term, but it's kinda "porn-ish".
D'oh!

My blender is nice, but it won't pulp things like this without adding a significant amount of liquid. It just kicks them around inside the jar, cutting some, but mostly getting things stuck where the blades can't get to it. Am I doing something wrong or do I need a new blender?
I think that the real problem is that you have too much space in your blender. As you see the blender in the ibble is a magic bullet and he fills it all the way with the charots so there is p way for them to get stuck above the blades so you could add more veggies/fruit or make some kind of press like a round pice of wood that fits cleanly into the blender so you could push the contents down to the blade.
correction: not a magic bullet but a smaller blender with less space.
mix them with your favorite fruit juice when blending and then you will have nice juice and it will be well blended. i like cranberry with carrot juice
New Blender. Get one that has a "Liquefy" button on it.

i make juice using the Liquify button in Photoshop. Tastes kinda funny tho.

I'm really tempted to make a press to remove the juice...a pneumatic one like they use for crushing grapes en masse to make wine or apple juice. Great writeup!
very nice! I used to make apple cider like this. do you think instead of a nut milk bag, I could use a cheesecloth?

Although I haven't tried it with cheesecloth, I'm sure it would work as well. The important part of this is to strain the pulp without getting the pulp in the juice.
