I've tried googling and searching these forums but I failed at finding the answer.

 

I'd like to consume non-diary milk, but I don't have the time or will to go through some complicated time-consuming stuff. I can't buy any diary milk alternatives, because the only thing that can be bought here is soy milk and it's too expensive for me.

 

So, is there anything that can be done quick&easy?

Thanks smiley.gif

I'd say oat or rice milk is likely the cheapest.

 

It's pretty much:

Soak 1 c of whatever you want until it is soft enough to process in a blender (oats won't take more than 20 minutes, hot water helps)

(I usually discard soaking water, but there's no real reason to, I guess)

Stick it in a blender

Add more water, to preference (experiment with how thin/thick you want the result to be)

Blend that sh*t.

Strain the liquid with a cheesecloth or a fine sieve into a container (I prefer glass) and store in fridge.

 

The solids can be used for whatever you can think of - porridge, baked into a casserole, whatever.

 

Add vanilla or sugar or salt or whatever you like.


I always wonder about people who say they "love" animals, but continue to eat meat. If that's your idea of love, I question what sort of twisted world view you must have.

Wow, thanks smiley.gif

 

I'm supposed to use raw material, right?

 

How long can that stay in the fridge until it goes bad?

It doesn't *need* to be cooked per se, though with rice/nuts/dried beans you may want to soak it over night. Oats would probably be the fastest, now that I think about it a little.

 

As for staying in the fridge... I wouldn't leave it in there longer than a week (although it doesn't usually last that long in my home, we use it all within a few days lol). If you find you aren't using it fast enough, you can try making smaller batches.

I make my own almond milk..it's so much better then what is available in the grocery store

However you do need to invest in a good blender ie vitamix or blendtec etc.

A nut milk bag also comes in handy

 

Here is a easy delicious recipe you can easily become spoiled drinking

This is a small recipe as I like to make it fresh and use it within two days

 

1/2 c raw almond

spring water to cover

soak in ice box for at least 6 hrs

drain

 

then,

 

put almonds in the blender

add about two cups ice cold spring water

add 2 1/2 chopped dates

add pinch celtic sea salt

1/4 to 1/2 tsp vanilla

 

blend on ice crusher setting twice

Prepare big bowl open nut bag and

put into bowl.  pour contents of blender into

nut bag.  Extract all nutmilk from blended milk. 

Store in a glass jar with tight fitting lid.  Use as milk,

make ice cream etc.
