{ else }   Blog: Nut Milk in a Minute  

Almonds are members of the Rosaceae (Rose) Family and a relative of peaches, cherries and apples. They have anti-inflammatory, antispasmodic, demulcent, emollient, and tonic properties. They help alkalinize the blood and relieve chi stagnation in the liver. They are used to lubricate the lungs, relieve asthma and coughing, clear phlegm, improve energy and memory, strengthen the nervous system, and increase strength and sexual vitality. They are known as brain and bone food.

Almonds contain about 18 percent protein and are a good source of vitamin E, calcium, iron, magnesium, potassium, and zinc. They also contain amygdalin, otherwise known as laetrile, an anticancer nutrient.

In Ayurvedic medicine, almonds are used to strengthen ojas, the essence that exemplifies intellect and spiritual receptivity. Yogananda, Indian guru and author of Autobiography of a Yogi said almonds foster “self control and calmness of the mind and nerves.”

A milk made from almonds or other soaked nuts can be a great substitute for dairy, soy or asceptically packaged products. I look for really raw almonds (most American almonds, even those marketed as raw are pasteurized), so either Spanish almonds, those you shell yourself from companies such as, or

Almond Milk

Why settle for a product in an aseptic package that has a shelf life of three years? Choose vitality instead!

1 cup almonds, soaked overnight
1 quart water
1 tablespoon raw honey or 2 dates, soaked 20 minutes

Rinse the nuts in a colander to remove enzyme inhibitors

Combine all ingredients in a blender and liquefy. Then strain through a sprout bag or a paint strainer bag (available at paint or hardware stores). Pulp can be saved to add to casseroles, cookies or other dishes.

Note: These same directions can be used for making cashew, hazelnut, pine nut, sesame, sunflower, walnut, or pumpkin seed milk.

Makes 1 quart.
