10 Easy Ways To Make Your Own Incredibly Healthy Dairy Free Milk

Dairy free milk is not just for Vegans!

These milks are healthy and nutritious. Did you know that making homemade milk from nuts, seeds or grains is one of the best ways to increase the amount of vitamins and minerals in your diet?  

Some of the benefits include support for cardiovascular system, healthy weight, lower belly fat, diabetes prevention, hypertension, cancer, and inflammation.

By now I hope you have heard about the risks to health from eating dairy.  And if somehow you missed how bad dairy is for your health, you might want to watch this video below:

 

So now we know why we shouldn’t be eating dairy, why should we waste our time making homemade dairy free milk?  Why not just go out and buy it in the store?

There are two reasons I prefer to make my own milk rather than buy it:

  1. Most dairy free milks contain harmful additives and preservatives to stabilise the milk and make it more tasty and addictive so you buy more of it.
  2. All of the nutrition is lost during the pasteurisation process. If you make your own milk you get an abundance of nutrients that you just don’t get by buying your milk at the store.

And best of all homemade dairy free milk tastes absolutely delicious.  Once you try these recipes, you’ll find it hard to go back to regular milk again.

10 Best Dairy Free Homemade Milk Recipes

The Basics

All of the milks are started in the same way. You will only need a few items to make them.

Equipment Needed:

  • Nut Milk Bag

I recommend this nut milk bag.

To Prepare each milk you will follow these steps-

1) Soaking

It is not necessary to soak nuts and seeds before making milk out of them.  But if you do soak them it will make them easier to blend and easier for your body to digest.

Each nut,seed or grain will soak for a different amount of time.

To soak the nuts or seeds, add them to a bowl and cover them with pure water and 1 teaspoon of salt for the time listed below:

Soak for 8-12 hours

  • Almonds
  • Hazelnuts
  • Walnuts
  • Pumpkin Seeds
  • Sesame Seeds
  • Sunflower Seeds

Soak for 2-3 hours

  • Cashew nuts
  • Rice

No soaking time needed

  • Brazil nuts
  • Macadamia nuts
  • Hemp Seeds
  • Pine nuts
  • Pistachio nuts
  • Coconut
  • Millet

 

After soaking the nuts, drain them and rinse them with pure water.

Now you are ready for the next step.

2) Blending

Add water and blend soaked ingredients in your blender. Blend until smooth, usually about 2 minutes. See below for exact recipes.

3) Straining

Strain ingredients through a nut milk bag and twist bag to remove all the liquid.

4) Add ins

Add in extra ingredients like dates, cinnamon, ginger, Turmeric etc….(More on this later)

5) Storage

Store in glass jars for up to a week.
