Shell nuts and cover with water. Soak nuts for at least 3 hours but preferably overnight. You are making milk, so they longer the soak the better.
Drain off soaking water
Drain soaking water off of nuts. Add nuts to blender and add in water adequate to the consistency of milk or cream desired. I use a thicker cream for making puddings or pouring over hot crisps, more water for drinking milk. Blend on high for about 2 minutes. Add in vanilla, sea salt and syrup to taste.
Pour milk through fine sieve, cheese cloth or nut bag. Don't throw the pulp away! Try adding it and add it to cookies, crusts or baked goods.
Store milk in the fridge for 2-3 weeks.
Healing Benefits: Nuts are high in protein, fats, fiber, minerals and vitamins. They help protect the heart and lower cholesterol levels.
Energetics: Nuts nourish yin, blood and fluids. Each enters different organs but all are building and strengthening.
