How to Make Your Nut Drink in 3 Easy Steps

Nut Drink

As you may have heard, the popularity of plant-based diets has surged in recent years, and the trend shows no signs of slowing down. This movement has not only given rise to various meat alternatives but has also propelled plant-based drinks into the spotlight, including one of our favorites -> 😍 nut drinks!

Why Choose Nut Drinks?
Packed with nutrients and serving as a plant-based protein source, nut drinks are inherently vegan and generally allergy-friendly (unless you have a nut allergy, of course). Beyond their impressive health benefits, these beverages prove incredibly versatile – seamlessly fitting into your breakfast smoothie, afternoon latte, and a plethora of recipes, from bread and sauces to desserts and baked goods, with minimal impact on flavor. But have you ever considered making your own?

Getting Started with Nut Drinks
Crafting your nut drink not only proves cost-effective but also surprisingly delicious and more straightforward than you might think. Before diving into the how-to, here are a few basics to guide you along the way:

  1. Buy raw nuts for extended shelf life and better soaking properties.
  2. Ensure your nuts are fresh and of the highest quality within your budget to avoid rancidity.
  3. Choose nuts without the skin to save yourself the hassle of peeling later.
  4. Soak your nuts overnight to enhance flavors and texture.

How to Make Your Nut Drink
Now that you’ve grasped the basics, let’s explore the simple three-step process for creating your homemade nut drink.

Step 1: Soak
Soak approximately 130g of nuts for at least a couple of hours, or preferably overnight for optimal flavor. Remember to drain and rinse them afterward.

Step 2: Blend
Combine your soaked nuts with 700ml of water and, if desired, add a sweetener like honey, agave, or maple syrup. Blend until smooth, pulsing initially to break up the nuts.

Step 3: Strain
While not mandatory, straining the milk eliminates pulp. You can use a muslin cloth, or a coffee filter, or invest in a nut bag for frequent nut drink crafting. Don’t discard the pulp and save it for smoothies or baked goods.

Congratulations, you’re done! Store your nut drink in the refrigerator, where it will remain fresh for up to five days.
