Go Naked for White Almond Milk

The slightly beige color of natural nut milks can be a turn off for some New*Bees to the raw food scene. Besides, what is more beautiful than a tall glass of sparkling white milk? (Although, I personally think nut milk is already white enough when you strain it. See for yourself in the video below.)


After soaking, they easily slip right off.

Naked almonds are bee-u-tiful!

Here’s a step-by-step photo series for yummi-licious almond milk. For NewBees or kids, don’t be afraid to go a little sweet at first. Dessert milks are my personal favorites but when using as a base for smoothies, plain is quite nice.

How to Make Raw Almond Milk:

  • 1 cup almonds, soaked 4-6 hours
  • 4 cups water
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 pinch sea salt
  • choice of sweetener

Here’s a quick HOW TO lesson in making purr*fect almond milk:

If you want white milk, remove the skins first. Otherwise, simply toss the almonds into a high speed blender with water. Buzz around until the water becomes milky white.

Line another pitcher with a nut milk bag (using as a strainer) and pour in this watery liquid you just blended.

Squeeze and knead – almost like milking a cow until all you have left in the bag is dry almond meal. (save these for cookies, crackers and adding to pancake batter)

Blend in remaining ingredients from the recipe above or get creative with cinnamon or maple syrup. Strawberries make a BEEutiful pink milk ūüôā

Serve chilled. Yummers. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.

TIP: Try switching things up a bit by using hemp seeds instead of almonds.




Add a Raw Mono-Food to every Meal.

Guest Blogger: Cindy Davis

I have tried more times than I can count to GO 100% RAW.  Each time, I load up my cart with vegetables, fruits, and nuts, and drive home hoping for the best.

Each time, I have varying degrees of success going completely raw.  Eventually, life always interferes.  I find the social challenges of eating raw to be more challenging than the food prep or physical cravings.  I live in a small town with no opportunities for gourmet raw while eating out.  My family eats out a lot.

My top tip for getting started with raw is to add something raw to every meal.

Those of you who are experienced raw foodist may or may not agree with me.  But if you have trying to go raw and find yourself failing time and time again Рthen STOP!

Forgive yourself.  Allow yourself roam to grow into raw at your own pace. Start small.  Stay there awhile, then increase gradually.

Add one mono-food to each meal.

I like to add one raw mono-food to each meal.  No complications.  I simple cut this food up and put it on our plates.

This is such a small baby step that at first I even felt guilty about doing this!  Each time I added one raw mono-food to our plates I would think that I should be doing more.  I thought I should be better, and stop failing.

I have slowly learned to accept this one, simple mono-food as a success all by itself.

Yes, some days I am able to eat all raw all day.¬† Other days I eat only half or less raw.¬† But now, because of Kristen’s influence, I am eating a raw mono-food at most every meal.
