Jamaica Trinnaman, founder of Hello Bulk Markets, stopped by to show us how to save money by turning raw nuts into Almond or Cashew Milk in just a few steps.

INGREDIENTS for Homemade Vanilla Nut Milk

1 cup of Raw Almonds or Cashews (organic preferred)

3 cups water for soaking (then another 3 cups water for blending)

1 Tbls maple syrup (or 3 soaked dates)

1 tsp vanilla

Soak nuts in 3 cups water, refrigerated, for 1-2 days. Almonds take a day longer than cashews. Discard the soaking water and puree the nuts with 3 cups fresh water, the sweetener and vanilla in a high quality blender for roughly one minute (until very well blended). Strain the liquid through a cheese cloth or nut milk bag. Taste and determine if you want more vanilla or sweetener. Refrigerate the milk, and shake if it separates. Keeps about 4 days. *the left over pulp can be used for many things like crackers or energy bites!
