Why buy non-dairy milk when you can make your own in two minutes? This delicious, subtly sweet drink is made with nutrient dense hemp seeds. If you like chocolate milk, just add some cocoa powder.

This milk was absolutely delicious at the immersion weekend. I am going to buy the ingredients and make it in my VitaMix. Yum!

Does anyone know how long before the milk spoils?

It is even yummy without the hemp seeds. I used the water that the almonds were soaking in (was in the frig) for the extra flabor/nutrition. I ate some of the almonds that were soaked and that was interesting...

I'm new to ETL and to juicing, but I'm assuming this recipe could be made with a juicer too...right?

No, cannot use a juicer on this one.  Juicers only work on most fruits (e.g. not bananas) and vegetables, not nuts and seeds.  Use a blender like the instructions say.

No need to peel the almonds.

I'm not sure what type of juicer you mean but this recipe needs to be made in a blender.

I make almond milk weekly (1 cup almonds with 3 cups water, blend and then strain) and it keeps for 3 days in the fridge.

From the research I've done on soaking nuts, you really wouldn't want to use the soaking water to make this. Soaking allows for the nut (or seed for that matter) to shed it's enzyme inhibiting agents that keep it from growing until there is enough water in nature. The water gets very gloopy (technical term there) and slimy. Better to rinse that all away! Here's an article if anyone is interested http://foodmatters.tv/articles-1/the-benefits-of-soaking-nuts-and-seeds

No you can't make it with a juicer! No you don't need to peel the nuts. Just use the fine mesh bag after blending in a vitamix. This is a great recipe but the fat content is astounding. 20.1gm. I am following this program and am also a Weight Watcher. This is 7 points value! The hazel nut milk I make is only 4 points. The hemp no doubt adds nutrition but it also bumps up the richness!

I'm not sure I understand the counts. It's 263 calories for a 1 cup serving?! Almond Breeze Original has only 30 calories per cup. Is Almond Breeze Original more diluted with water? I'd like to try making this but can't afford that many calories added to my smoothies.

I agree about the calories! I would love to know how straining the milk would impact the calorie count.

Re the calories I think you have to see this as a complete food rather than just a drink. Straining would take some of the nut and seed solids out, so would reduce some macronutrients but would also reduce fibre too

Many of the calories come from hemp seeds. There are about 174 calories in 30 grams (about an ounce) with 127 coming from fat. The fat, however is a good fat. Hemp seeds are also a good source of zinc (3.5 mg 23%) and magnesium (192 mg 48%). The hemp seeds add a distinct flavor.

Excellent recipe! I previously used carton versions of non-dairy milks. No more after I read the ingredient list. Homemade recipes are too quick/easy, clean, delicious and so simple: 1-2 to 4 ratio (nuts/seeds to water) spun in a blender (I use Vitamix). I don't strain any of the batches I prepare. Sometimes I add coconut. I don't always use vanilla.

I don't count calories - I get why not: nutrient density is what "counts", not empty calories/additives, etc. I lost over 50 pounds not counting calories/eating DF recipes. All those years before when I counted calories I was in yo-yo mode and thought not exercising was my fault while processed food was not providing me with "good" energy - rather it was draining me. My real effort: food prep/cooking and being naturally energized with real food. And enjoying great tasting meals. Totally worth it. THANK YOU

Thank you so much for your insight.  I totally agree with you.  Counting calories is not the answer.

Any ideas on uses for the strained almonds?  All I've come up with so far is to add it to oatmeal.

I don’t strain the solids out since I never drink it like milk.  I only use it as an ingredient in recipes.
