DIY Almod Mylk

In last week’s blog, MOOve on Over Dairy, we discussed the hot topic of human health and environmental impact in relation to the dairy industry.

To follow up, we are here to provide you with one of our many delicious solutions which can help today’s world triumph through these challenges.

AMOUNT INGREDIENTS
1 CUP RAW ALMONDS; SOAKED
4 CUPS PURE WATER
3 WHOLE MEDJOOL DATES; PITTED
1 TEASPOON MACA POWDER
½ TEASPOON VANILLA EXTRACT

(option: ½ teaspoon Tahitian vanilla powder or 1 vanilla bean)

1 DROP Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade CINNAMON ESSENTIAL OIL

(option: ½ teaspoon cinnamon powder)

 

 

 

↠ SOAKING:

  • Soak 3/4 cup of raw almonds for 8 hours in filtered water
  • Remove water, rinse the nuts inside a colander. Yields 1 cup of soaked “activated” almonds

↠ PREPPING:

  • Pour 4 cups of filtered water into the blender
  • Add 1 cup of activated almonds
  • Blend these ingredients together for about a minute on high speed setting
  • Pour the mylk through a nut milk bag to strain into a medium sized bowl
  • Squeeze the nut milk bag until the almond pulp is completely dry
  • Set pulp aside to store for use in other recipes!
  • Rinse the blender
  • Place mylk, pitted Medjool dates, vanilla extract, maca powder, and cinnamon essential oil into the blender
  • Blend for a minute on high speed
RAW REPUBLIC TIP:   If using a high-speed blender such as Vitamix or Blendtec you can blend the mylk for 4 minutes to drink it warm

↠ Superfood add-ons: (Mix and match to your liking!) Plant-based protein powder, raw cacao, matcha green tea powder, mesquite powder, gluten-free oats, shredded coconut,  hemp seeds, or chia seeds

↠ Alternative for almonds: Macadamia nuts or cashews

↠ Alternative for sweeteners: Stevia extract, raw honey, maple syrup, or lucuma
