Notes
Read my post on directions and why soaking nuts is best. You can use unsoaked nuts but it is best if you soak them in a glass jar with filtered water over night. I couldn't wait to drink the milk so I added a few ice cubes and went to heaven! The milk will separate from some of the solids after leaving it in the refrigerator. You can stir it or drink the thinned out milk too. I can't decide which I fancy more! Oh and I added cacao powder to another batch and viola I had chocolate milk!!
