Nut and seed milks are easy to make, and some are delicious. Many of these are high in calcium with no cholesterol.
Grind 1/2 cup raw nuts or seeds to a fine powder. Leave in food processor or blender and add 1 cup of water, vanilla extract, honey or Saccharin. Blend for five minutes. Stop and add one more cup of water, then blend for five more minutes.
Strain the milk with a colander lined with two sheets of cheesecloth. Strain a second time. This milk can be stored for about 4 to 5 days in the refrigerator. Use the leftover nut fiber for a nutscrub in the shower, in baking, or in your compost pile.
Some delicious nuts to try are almonds, cashews and sesame seeds.
