Just run out of almond milk? Or you went to the local store and they didn’t have any? Here is the quickest nut milk recipe that may change your buying habits in the future.

You may be surprised to know just how few almonds are in store-bought almond milk.  Some say only 2% of almond milk is actually almonds. 

If you make your own almond milk from almonds, the recipes are more like 30-40% almonds – but it can be time-consuming to soak the almonds, skin them, blend them and then filter the milk.

So I love the approach where you start off with nut butter instead. Afterall, nut butter is just churned nuts. It’s quick, simple, and you can make it as “strong” or “weak” as you like. Take a look at the quickest nut milk recipe infographic.

Variety is the spice of life!

Let your imagination run wild with all the new types of nut butters out there, selecting the organic choices with no additional sweeteners.  I love the idea of the fig and nut butter as milk on some oatmeal. Another I’d like to try both as a butter/spread and milk is  Kalot Almond butter with espresso and hazelnut. They will make delicious nut milks. And it’ll be interesting to see how the flavored milks pair with other ingredients.
