Nutritious Nut Milk

Have you tried making your own milk out of nuts? If not, you are in for a delicious and healthy treat! Homemade nut milk is easy to make and high in many beneficial vitamins and minerals. Making it is a simple process requiring organic raw nuts, filtered water, a high-speed blender, and a nut bag or fine mesh strainer. This drink is great on its own and in a smoothie or dessert, like ice cream.

Ingredients:

1 cup almonds, soaked overnight & skins removed
2 cups filtered water
1 pinch of sea salt
1 dash of vanilla extract
1 Tbs. maple syrup

Directions:

  1. Blend the nuts and water in a high-speed blender until liquefied and smooth.
  2. Pour the milk through a nut bag or through a large fine mesh sieve over a large bowl to strain out the pulp.
  3. Strain nut milk once through a nut bag and twice through a sieve.
  4. Add salt, vanilla extract, and maple syrup and stir. Makes about 2 ½ cups.

Environment
Dairy & Global Warming

With the release of major reports pointing to animal agriculture’s significant role in contributing to global warming, many people assume eating meat is the only issue. However, dairy contributes more than most may realize. According to a new report for the Food and Agriculture Organization of the UN, the dairy sector of animal agriculture accounts for approximately 4% of all global anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions (GHG).

According to the report, methane contributes most to the global warming impact of milk, accounting for about 52% of its GHG emissions in both developing and developed countries. Nitrous oxide emissions account for 27% of GHG emissions in developed countries and 38% in developing countries. Carbon dioxide accounts for a higher share of emissions in developed countries (21%) than in developing countries (10%).
