Plant Based Milk Recipes

Did you read my post about pant milk alternatives? I recently read it and realized that I have never made my own homemade milk.  I looked up a few recipes and found I had the ingredients for some of them.  I tried to making the Hemp Seed Milk yesterday and it turned out so great!  I found some more recipes to make milk alternatives that I want to try, check them out.  They look very easy!

Hemp Seed Milk- Recipe


Ingredients-
•    1 cup raw shelled hemp seeds
•    3 cups of filtered water
•    2-3 tsp. raw agave
•    ½ tsp. vanilla extract
•    1 tbsp. non-GMO soy
•    1 tbsp. raw coconut butter
•    Dash of sea salt

Instructions-
•    Place all the ingredients into a blender and start at low speed and continue to add speed until high.  Blend on high for about 3 minutes
•    If you want, I did, you can strain the blended mixture through a nut bag.  Keep the milk in a glass jar refrigerated.
•    Enjoy!

Almond Milk- Recipe


Ingredients-
•    1 cup organic raw almonds
•    2-3 cups purified water

Instructions-
•    Soak almonds in a large glass bowl with filtered water and sea salt for about 12 hours covered.
•    Rinse the nuts to remove the salt.  Put the almonds and water into blender and start at low speed and continue to add speed until high.  Blend on high until the nuts are completely in small pieces. 
•    If you want, strain the blended mixture through a nut bag.  You can also add flavor with vanilla extract or agave; I definitely want to try adding some cocoa powered to it.
•    Enjoy!

Coconut Milk-
Recipe


Ingredients-
•    1 cup coconut meat, from a young coconut
•    3 cups raw coconut water
•    2 tbsp. coconut butter

Instructions-
•    Place all the ingredients into a blender and start at low speed and continue to add speed until high.  Blend on high for about 3 minutes until creamy.
•    You can add flavor if you want, vanilla extract, coconut sugar, agave, ect.
•    Keep the milk in a glass jar refrigerated.
•    Enjoy!

Hopefully I will be able to try making these very soon and share how they turn out.  My Hemp seed milk turned out great!  Happy Milking!

Go Green and Stay Keen,

  2. What a great idea to make your own milk alternative. Back in the day when I was dairy free I spent so much money buying alternative milks, I wish I would have made my own.
