So why make your own nut milk when it is ready available and reasonably affordable at the grocery stores? Well of course, food companies cannot help but put ‘natural’ additives into just about every nut or seed milk product out there. The approval of the use of the stabilizing agent, Carageenan, has long been controversial due to research showing it causes gastrointestinal inflammation and can be a big problem from those with leaky gut syndrome. One type of carrageenan is listed by the World Health Organization as a “possible human carcinogen” …this means it potentially causes cancer. So with that in mind, there are steps that you can take to protect yourself from all of the garbage out there in out food supply. Making your own nut milk sounds complicated and time consuming but it is really as easy as 1-2-3! What you’ll need: 1 cup raw, organic nuts or seeds of your choosing 5 cups of filtered water 1 small, fine mesh strainer 1 large mason jar Raw, Organic, Dairy-free Nut Milk Preparation: he nuts and place them with 5 cups of filtered water into the blender. Step 3: Blend on high for a few minutes until all of the full nuts have been processed. Step 4: Place a very fine, conical shaped strainer over a mason jar and pour small portions of the blender contents in at a time. Stirring and emptying out the strainer after each little batch. BAM! You have your own homemade, delicious nut milk. I like mine just like this, but you can add vanilla bean or a little natural sweetner of your choice. It will last just under a week in the fridge.
