2-Minute Nut Milk

2-Minute Nut Milk

[dropcap style=”font-size: 60px; color: #9b9b9b;”] H[/dropcap]ave 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.
