Are you nut milk curious?
Making nut milks has been a joy of ours for quite sometime. Our friend, Brittany Buntain, taught us how to make it years ago when she came over with her pre-soaked almonds to use our vitamix. Thanks, Britt for teaching us something we could use forever!
Almonds are excellent for the heart, brain, and skin. Enjoy!
