Organic Way of Making Nut Milk – 100% Pure Health
Nut milk is a fantastic alternative to cow milk because it gives tremendous health benefits and those who are allergic to cow milk can have it too, and get the same or more amount of nutrition and other health benefits. Milk of nuts like almond or cashews is extremely nutritious, rich in vitamins and minerals and are beneficial in many diseases like weak bones and muscles, heart disease, kidney disease, blood pressure, cancer and many others. However, a big difference can arise in the nutrition depending on whether the nut milk is commercially produced or homemade or rather produced organically. Therefore it is very important to produce nut milk organically. You can do it easily at home by using the best equipment like the best nuts, organic flavors and hemp nut milk bag, etc. Let’s see how.
Why to Soak Nuts?
Most nuts are coated with chemicals, which are toxic and inhibitors of enzymes, to protect them from predators and also from sprouting prematurely, while they are in a phase of growth. These chemicals should be broken down before consuming. Soaking is utmost simple yet the best way to get rid of these toxic chemicals. By soaking, the nuts are freed from harmful chemicals and retain their best flavor and taste. Thus soaking makes nuts tastier and easier to digest.
How to Make Nut Milk at Home?
- Soak the nuts in pure, filtered water overnight. Drain and rinse.
- Put them in the blender along with filtered water.
- Add any flavoring you would like to, e.g. cinnamon, cardamom, etc.
- While squeezing, essentially use a hemp nut milk bag. Squeeze and separate the pulp from the milk.
You can make milk of a variety of nuts, including almonds, cashews, hazelnuts, pistachios, macadamia nuts, and any one you like.
To make 1 quart of nut milk, you will require 1 to 2 cups of raw unsalted organic nuts and 4 cups of purified or filtered water. Actually 1 cup of nuts is more than enough but some people prefer 2 cups. Additionally you can put a pinch of Himalayan salt, 1 to 2 tbsp of raw honey or other sweetener and 1 tsp of vanilla extract or 1 vanilla bean (soaked), only if you prefer.
Benefits of Hemp Bag to Squeeze
Using a hemp bag to squeeze the blended nuts and remove milk from the pulp has been proven more beneficial and organic. Because of the hemp bag, the chance of chemicals being added to your nut milk is eliminated. Hemp is an unbleached and undyed fabric, unlike most other fabric including cotton and nylon. Because the chemicals like bleach and dyes are not added to your nut milk or any other food, the risk of breast cancer and hormone dysfunction is nullified. Also there is no chance of plastic or other artificial material shedding your food.
Hemp is free from bio-toxins. It is grown without fertilizers or insecticides. It kills fungus, bacteria and staph. Hemp is also anti-mold, anti-rot and anti-static. It can hold back bowel bacillus and other microbes.
You can get the perfect size and shape to fit your jar. Also with rounded bottoms of the bag, there is no chance for the pulp to leave back in corners and rot there.
So, from now on, make milk of various nuts in a perfectly organic way and enjoy a 100% pure health!
