Basic Nut Milk Recipe

1 cup of soaked almonds, macadamia nuts, sunflower or sesame seeds
soak the almonds or macadamia nuts for at least 4 hours
3 cups of water or coconut water
a pinch of salt

If you use whole almonds, change the soaking water a few times and throw it away.
First pour boiling water over them, than icecold. This way it's easy to peel them and they stay raw. Don't let them sit in the boiling water of course.
Blend all ingredients in a powerful mixer for about 2 minutes or until completely smooth.
Strain them through a cheesecloth or nut milk bag.
Squeeze the milk out.
If you want, you can rinse the blender, pour the nut milk back into the blender and mix it with (for instance) raw chocolate and agave for raw vegan chocolate milk.

You can use the pulp for sweeties, deserts, crackers or nut pate's.

Thanks for the recipe. I enjoy almond milk, as well as whole nuts of all kinds. Great nutrition when eating raw or vegan!
