    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
