    lol. this was hilarious! i don’t have a nut milk bag but now i really want to get one and make this! i guess i always wondered if it really WAS cheaper. thanks for the easy-to-follow demo!

    Talk about food porn…! I’m amazed that one measly cup of nuts yields that much nut milk….but I suppose having never been milked before, the nuts would be quite packed (ahem).

    I will definitely have to try this out! Not being vegan myself, I was wondering if honey can be used instead of the agave?

    Who would have thought you could make that much milk out of nuts & water (more or less)…?

  4. Amber Shea

    Hillary—I’m sure honey would work just as well; in fact, the honey-almond flavor combo could be really excellent.

    Yum! Thanks for the tips! I’ve made almond milk before and didn’t have a nut bag…I can see why you need one! I’ll have to go get one.

    Oh..and thanks for the comment on my blog. The breakfast quinoa does well for leftovers, but maybe for only a day or 2 because of the milk.

    Nice! Haha, I would like to try some! Do you still have some left?

  7. Amber Shea

    Rachel—Not at the moment, but I’ll try and milk another batch of nuts by this weekend so you can try some ;]

    Hahahaha! Love it. Though it got a bit less appealing at “murky stew of enxyme inhibitors”…

    Almond milk is wonderful, but have you tried making pecan milk? Talk about decadent! I like to toast the nuts first to get more flavor from them, too; It makes the milk so rich and almost buttery… Yum!

    Aussie-abroad-Hannah—Hehe, no one likes enzyme inhibitors polluting their sweet nut milk.

    Bittersweet-blog-Hannah—I think you may be telepathic; I actually have a pecan milk post coming up in the next few weeks! “Buttery” is quite right, which must be why it’s so divine with maple syrup and cinnamon…hint hint!

    Pecan milk! Now there is an idea.

    I am about to write a series of recipes using my soy quick machine.

    Amber – I honestly had never sniggered at nut milk before. Now I have snorted coffee down my nose. Thankfully it was only coffee – imagine snorting nut milk!

  12. Amber Shea

    Helen—I thought I’d all but exhaused the hilarity of nut milk, but snorting? HAHA!

    I’d like you to do a demo on how to properly massage a nut milk bag please. *wink* Actually I am soaking raw almonds at this very moment as a result of your glowing review on nut milk & its creamy consistency. How could I pass it up!?! I hope to have nut milk every night before bed & maybe as a special treat throughout the day. Mmm…nut milk! I’ll let you know how it turns out considering I’ve had no formal nut milk bag massage training. :))

    No need to buy a special nut milk bag. Just go to your local hardware/paint store and buy a paint straining bag. Mine came in a two pack and works just great. Thanks for sharing all of your wonderful recipes!!
