Nut Milk Bags

Updated on December 5, 2010

What are Nut Milk Bags?

Over the years the people that want to eat raw foods have gone through many changes in how they are able to prepare their fruits and veggies. There have been many new appliances and gadgets that are helpful in food preparation, one of the convenient and useful additions to the list is the nutmilk bag. The nutmilk bag has many different uses which makes it a good investment, even if one isn't a raw foodist.

Nutmilk bags can not only be used for making delicious milk from a variety of nuts, but can also be used to make different juices and as a sprouting bag. It is a versatile addition to anyones kitchen that is interested in adding nutritious foods to their diet.

It can be a real hassle when you are using a strainer or cheesecloth, with a nutmilk bag all you have to do is slip the bag over the top of your blender and pour your mixture through it. You can either hang it by the handy drawstring to drain or squeeze it to get out every delicious drop you can! The fine nylon mesh bag works great, leaves little residue and can be used time after time.

I have made a collection of recipes that include everything from making nutmilk to using the nutmilk meal (leftover residue that doesn't strain through the bag) to make delicious, healthy foods for the family. I am sure there will be something that sounds good here for everyone!

For nut milks - Put 1/2 cup raw pecans, almonds, cashews, walnuts, Brazil nuts or nut of choice into a blender. Process until ground. Add 1/2 cup water (warm works best) and blend on alow speed for a few seconds, then turn blender to high or puree mode. You may also adddates, raisins, honey, agave or sweetener of choice. Blend for a few minutes, then add 1 1/2 cups water. Blend well, then strain through the nut milk bag for a silky, smooth, creamy milk that can be used to replace any milk for drinking, cooking or baking.

For almonds, soak 1/2 cup nuts for several hours, to over night in water, then blanch to remove skins. You don't have to do this but milk from blanched almonds would be slightly whiter in color and have a smoother consistency, having little or no difference in flavor though.

Juicing suggestions – Place the pulp from freshly squeezed juice in our bag and squeeze. You will be surprised how much more juice will come out! Also when traveling or if you don’t have a juicer handy, you can blend local fruits with a little water in a blender and strain through the bag. Fresh juice is always a great way to stay healthy!

Sprouting suggestions - Fill the bag no more than 1/4 of the way with the grain or seed that you wish to sprout. Let it soak over night, rinse and hang by the handy drawstring somewhere dark with a container underneath to catch any water that drips. Check and rinse your sprouts a few times a day (every4-6 hours), then eat the sprouts when they reach the size you desire.
