Nut Milk Bag by Living Synergy
Do you know you can make milk from nuts and seeds?
Now you can do this quickly and easily while at home with the
new Nut Milk Bag!
What is a Nut Milk Bag you might ask?
It is a handy tool that helps you make fresh, living and nutritious
milk from a variety of nuts and seeds. You can also use it to make
juice from fresh ingredients, by blending and then straining the
juice through the bag.
Otherwise using them where you would normally use cheesecloth or
muslin in cooking is becoming very popular too. They are a
wonderful accessory for a Thermomix, Vitamix or other powerful
blenders and kitchen appliances.
Three easy steps is all it takes:
1. SOAK soak your nuts of choice in enough water to cover them,
even as they swell
2. BLEND rinse and strain thoroughly before putting in the blender
with some water then blend
3. STRAIN strain through the Nut Milk Bag and 'milk' it with your
You can use most nuts/seeds including almonds (the most neutral
and widely used for nut milk), brazil, pecan, walnut, pistachio,
sesame, sunflower, pumpkin etc - Make sure they are raw and
Those with brown skins have enzyme inhibitors and require
soaking for at least 6 hours (overnight is easy) and then a good
rinse. The fattier nuts like macadamias and cashews don't require
soaking, although it can make them a little creamier depending on
what you are using them for.
Use between 2 to 6 parts water to 1 part nuts/seeds. The less
water, the creamier the milk will be.
You can sweeten and flavour the milk with honey, dates, vanilla
etc - by either adding them in the blender before you strain the
milk, or blending into the milk when you are making a smoothie or
whatever else takes your fancy.
It is easiest to put the Nut Milk Bag over a large jug to strain
the milk. A bowl is also fine, although I would recommend one with
a lip for easy pouring once the milk is strained. The nut milk will
keep in the fridge for up to 3 days.
You can use the milk for smoothies, soups, chia pudding, over
granola, raw ice-cream or anywhere else you would normally use
milk. My favourite is to blend with a mix of fresh and frozen ripe
bananas and perhaps mango, strawberries, frozen raspberries,
vanilla, dates and cinnamon. Your options are endless and only
limited by your imagination.
Play around and see what you like. Your body will love this
real, live food, free of additives and preservatives that hasn't
been heated to high temperatures.
It makes a great alternative for those who are sensitive to
dairy. If you know anyone who is, why not pass the info on?
The Nut Milk Bags come nicely packaged in a box with a coloured
instruction and recipe booklet including photos. A lovely gift idea
