Nut Milk

Nut Milk
This homemade nut milk is delicious as it is. Great with your next cup of latte, too!


  1. Soak almonds in tap water overnight (or for 12 hours in very hot water). Strain well. You can also use other nuts of your choice like hazelnut or macadamia, but organic is best.
  2. Combine the soaked almonds (or other nuts), water, salt, and sweetener of choice (optional) in a blender. Use less water if you want thicker milk. Blend until creamy and smooth, keeping it running for a few minutes on high so you get the most flavour out of your nuts.
  3. Add your optional flavourings if you want flavoured milk. Blend again for 2 minutes on high.
  4. Strain using a nut milk bag or fine cheesecloth over a bowl. Pour the almond milk mixture over the cloth, then carefully gather the corners and lift up. Squeeze until all of the liquid is extracted. Discard pulp or save for adding to baked goodies.
  5. Transfer milk to a jar or covered bottle and refrigerate. Will keep for up to a week, although best to drink fresh.

Extra Notes

TIP: Use raw cacao or cocoa powder to make "chocolate milk" or fresh berries for berry-flavoured nut milk.

I was sceptical about using HH, but am so glad I took the plunge! Within a week I felt happier! My night sweats have decreased, my moods are much more stable, I just feel calmer and happier. My husband said he can’t believe the difference and agreed 100% when I told him people call it Happy Husband :)
I recommend this to all my clients who have hormonal issues.

Thank god for Happy Hormones

I absolutely love the whole range offered by Happy Healthy You. I have been taking Happy Hormones for a couple of years now and it's been a life saver. Along with the Happy Greens & Happy Tumeric it goes a long way to keeping me feeling happy and healthy.

Calm & controlled

I struggle to get my hashimoto's hypothyroidism to stay stable. Along with it, my moods etc. HH has helped moods, sleep issues and even helped make me more conscious of hunger pains. HG has helped control my bowel movements immensely - I recommend.

I'm starting to feel 'normal' again

I've battled chronic fatigue, depression/anxiety, insomnia, irregular menstrual cycles and epic long PMS for many years, and I've noticed a massive improvement while on Happy Hormones. It's only been about 9 weeks, and I'm starting to feel like a balanced, healthy woman with control over my life and emotional well-being.
I've followed the 8 week program and found that to really set a good basis for changing my gut health, I'm less bloated, my sleep has improved ten-fold, and I have much more sustained energy! I'm loving eating less meat, and having fresh juices has made limiting coffee much easier. I also remember to take my Happy Turmeric probiotics much better than the other probiotic capsules I've kept sleeping in the fridge in the past, and I actually think they taste great too. I'm trying the Happy Greens as well this time :)
I've made many attempts to change my hormonal health through naturopathy before, and this one has been the fastest acting and most achievable. Hoping I just continue to improve!
Thanks for all the research and providing a great product for women!
