Great for making puddings (chia pudding or vegan pudding made with kanten/agar agar, like vegan panna cotta recipes), pouring over home made cereal/muesli/grainola or topping off coffee (diy cold brew coffee concentrate)!!
Up close - see how it is frothy? Perfect for a "latte" with coffee concentrate.
You can soak your nuts before making the milk- supposedly offers more nutrition. Soaking makes it easier to blend, especially if you have a "regular" blender (instead of a vitamix or blendtec etc.).
You can use a "nut milk bag" which is a fine cheesecloth. It will strain out any chunks. People use the leftover pulp for cookies raw crackers and other recipes.
Personally I go the lazy route most often- put it in the blender then drink.
1/4 C nuts or seeds
2.5 C filtered water
2-4 medjool dates, pitted (more or less depending on how sweet you want it)
- Almonds (good for protein and minerals)
- Walnuts (good for omega 3 fatty acids)
- Brazil Nuts (rich and creamy, similar to half and half)
- Pecans (makes a really rich milk and a decadent coffee)
- Sunflower seeds
- Pepitas/pumpkin seeds (good for magnesium)
