2-Minute Nut Milk

2-Minute Nut Milk

Have you ever made your own nut milk?

One of my favourite things in the world is drinking big cups of hot milky Irish breakfast tea. Preferably sitting next to a certain Irishman.

The only problem is I like a lot of milk in my tea. Which can easily spike my blood sugar.

So mostly I opt to drink black tea.

But during my recent month experiment of eating dairy-free I was craving milky tea. And had the inspiration to make nut milk using some nut butter.

So easy. And So good!

No need for all the soaking and food processor-ing. Plus hardly any waste. Yay!

I’ve used almond butter and also a brazil-cashew-almond butter blend and both have been delicious.

And if you’re OK with eating regular butter, the creamier version below is a real winner!

  • Brilliant. I’ve been thinking of getting off cream in my morning coffee and almond milk from the store is watered down and IMO tasteless. So I was thinking of making my own – a bit of work so haven’t got there yet. This is brilliant – will make some tomorrow (after I get almond butter).

    • Hope you enjoy Miriam!

      I can’t believe how bland commercial almond milks are.

      Love that with this method you can make it as creamy as you like :)

  • Can this be used just like almond milk, ie. on cereal? I make my own almond milk and it’s good, but a real hassle plus figuring out what to do with all the almond meal that is leftover.
