What is the ratio of nuts to milk? I don't have a refrigerator at the moment, so I need to make things in small quantities.
I have a recipe that says 4:1, water to nuts. So, make it how you like it. Just keep in mind, the more water you use, the more milk you will get. That's a consideration if you don't have a fridge.Originally Posted by SamuelWilson
Hi everyone, there is no rule when it comes to the nut/water ratio. Here is a general guideline though (but again, there are no rules)
1.5:1 ratio = creamiest mylk
2:1 ratio = creamier mylk
3:1 ratio = economical mylk
Explained, 1.5:1 means 1 1/2 cup of water to 1 cup of nuts. 2:1 means 2 cups of water to 1 cup of nuts. 3:1 means 3 cups of water to 1 cup of nuts.
When you soak nuts, they will expand. However, you measure them dry. So for example, a cup of almonds could end up more like a cup and a half after they are soaked.
Also, it is not necessary to remove the skin off of soaked almonds. Also, you do not need to strain if you do not want to, that is all up to you. I strain it though because I prefer a smooth mylk.
