It’s really simple to make your own delicious plant milk. Experiment with nuts (such as almonds, macadamia, hazelnuts) or desiccated coconut. It’s good to soak them first
In your blender put:
1 cup or so of toasted coconut curls or shelled hemp seeds; or a mixture of the two
1 to 1 and a half litres of filtered water
A pinch of salt (you can taste and add more later)
A fresh mejool date or a little maple syrup (not necessary but can be extra yummy)
A half teaspoon of vanilla essence
A handful or two of cashew nuts (for more creaminess, if you use your milk for coffee)
Pop the coconut, hemp, date and cashew in a blend and pour on filtered water. Soak overnight.
In the morning, add the rest of the ingredients and blend for about a 2-3 minutes in a high speed blender.
Taste and adjust flavourings accordingly and re-blend.
Then strain through a nut milk bag into a wide jug. Then transfer to a screw top or cork top wide neck glass bottle and chill in the fridge.
Give your milk a little shake each time you use it to remix the ingredients.
