In our guide to using and choosing a nut milk bag (below), we will give you tips for making your own perfect nut or seed milk. All it takes is a bit of time and patience!
Why Chose a Nut Milk Bag?
There are plenty of reasons why people are using their own nut milk bag to produce nut milk in their homes. Some of the most common include:
1) You can make flavors and types of milk not available at the store.
2) Absolute control over what goes into your milk.
3) A truly local version with no artificial ingredients.
4) It’s absolutely simple to make either a small or large batch.
5) Less waste! You can use the leftover pulp in other recipes, as well, too.
6) Save money! Making your own at home is pretty inexpensive, too.
Using Your Bag
Using a nut milk bag in your home is very simple. All you need to do is thoroughly immerse your nuts or seeds for the right amount of time in water. For example, almonds should be soaked around 8 hours or overnight. Drain the nuts and rinse them, throwing away the soaking water. Add about a cup of seeds and 3 cups water to a high speed blender. Blend on high until foamy. Next, use your nut milk bag or fine mesh strainer to strain out the pulp. Nut Milk Bag Use a large bowl for this, so that you don't make a mess. Twist or close the strainer and squeeze all excess liquid out. You’re done! Store your final product in the fridge.
Where to Get This Product
