This recipe shows another variation to traditional almond milk, which is most commonly seen and used in recipes.
Handful of walnuts (pre-soaked)*
5-6 dried apricots
1. Blend until smooth.
*Soaking nuts tends to makes food more yin in nature so if you are looking to replenish yang you might want to avoid soaking the walnuts.
Making any nut milk is very easy. A handful of nuts and water will make you a delicious nutmilk, and whether or not you pre-soak your nuts or strain your milk it is up to you. I have a vitamix so the nuts in my smoothies pretty much melt away, but if you have a traditional blender you might want to use a strainer.
Adding in fruit turns traditional nutmilk into a party. Just think of all the colors and tastes that can be made. The good news is that if you don’t have any fresh fruit on hand you can use dried fruit in its place. In some cases using dried fruit might be preferred as it is very nourishing for the body, especially for the blood.
This smoothie is great for couples that are trying to conceive and can also soothe a nagging cough~ just don’t serve it too cold!
