If gluten is tolerated, nut milk can be combined with oat milk for a very smooth and creamy beverage or base.
Raw, organic oats are just soaked (always use filtered water) for an hour in the blender with a pinch of good salt such as Himalayan or Celtic Sea Salt. Cover the oats with the water and leave about 2 – 3 inches over the top of the oats. In an hour, blend and strain through the cheesecloth.
For nuts – soak two hours in the blender in filtered water with about 2 – 3 inches over the top. Add a good pinch of salt. Then blend and strain.
Flavoured milks or smoothies are easy to make by adding: fruit or agave nectar or carob to the strained nut milk or oat milk.
