Do you prefer nut milk alternatives to dairy? Most people know that almond milk can be made in a blender but did you know that you can make nut milk in your MOD Cold Press?
Not only does homemade almond milk taste a million times better than the store bought stuff, by making it in your MOD Cold Press, there is no need to squeeze the milk through a nut milk bag making the process that much easier.
Homemade almond milk only contains a few simple, pantry staple ingredients and is free from artificial sweeteners and stabilisers.
Cold Pressed Almond Milk | MOD Appliances
Nut milk recipe
1 cup raw almonds, soaked overnight or for a minimum eight hours
3.5 cups of filtered water
1 TBSP maple syrup or sweetener of choice (more or less to taste)
1 tsp vanilla extract
Pinch of sea salt
To soak almonds: Place almonds into a bowl and cover with filtered water. Allow to sit on the bench top for at least eight hours or overnight in the fridge;
Drain the almonds and rinse twice through clear running water;
Set up your MOD Cold Press Juicer for normal juicing (refer to the MOD Juicing Handbook for guidance);
To your filtered water, add in the maple syrup, vanilla extract and salt. Give the mixture a stir to combine;
With the juicer motor running, alternate between adding a handful of soaked almonds with roughly ½ cup of the flavoured water mixture, feeding slowly into juicer. Continue until all nuts and water have been added;
Turn the juicer off, and taste the milk. Adjust flavouring to your personal preference. If you would like a thinner, less creamier milk simply add in more water.
Tip: Store your almond milk in the fridge. As there are no preservatives or stabilisers in the milk, it will not last as long as store bought milk. It is best consumed within three days. Freeze any excess into ice cubes to have on hand to add to smoothies or porridge.
