- 1 cup organic/raw/non-GMO soaked nuts (almonds (blanched work best), cashews, macadamia nuts, hazelnuts, or other), hemp seeds, coconut meat, OR quinoa
NOTE: Make a choice from the list above. If making milk for infants, coconut meat isn’t recommended as it has a laxative effect on babies under the age of 2. Also, some babies suffer from nut allergies, so I’d recommend selecting another food from the list unless you know for a fact that baby isn’t allergic.
- 2 cups of hot alkaline/purified water
NOTE: Hot water makes the milk more creamy. If making milk for infants, do not use nursery water because it contains fluoride.
- 1 tablespoon grade B organic maple syrup, coconut sugar crystals, or 1-2 pitted dates (if you prefer to use a different sweetener, feel free to do so)
NOTE: If making milk for infants, coconut sugar crystals aren’t recommended as the sweetener has a laxative effect on babies under the age of 2.
- 1 dash pink Himalayan salt crystals
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract or powder, OPTIONAL
- 1 -2 pinches cassia or ceylon cinnamon, OPTIONAL
- 1 -3 tablespoons raw maca powder, OPTIONAL
- 1-3 tablespoons powdered moringa, chlorella, or spirulina, OPTIONAL
NOTE: I suggest starting with the recommended amount of the optional ingredients and increasing the amount per your desired taste..
- Soak 1 cup of the organic/raw ingredient you selected from the list of the first ingredient above over night in purified water.
- Drain the water from the soaked food.
- Heat 2 cups of purified water, but not to the boiling point.
- Put the soaked food and 2 cups of hot purified water in the blender.
- Blend for 2-4 minutes.
- Pour contents through a strainer or cheesecloth into a glass bowl.
- Wash the blender.
- Pour the milk in the blender and add pink Himalayan salt crystals, optional ingredients of your choice, and the sweetener you selected from the list of the third ingredient above.
- Blend 1-2 minutes.
- Refrigerate in a glass container until ready to drink.
- Use within 48 hours.
Note: If making for infants or toddlers, I suggest purchasing a natural vitamin drop for infants to ensure that baby gets all the necessary nutrients. While moringa, chlorella, and spirulina are packed with nutrients, there are a few missing that are important to babies overall growth and well-being.
