I have really enjoyed being back in the kitchen more since the start of the new year. When we travel a lot, we do as I think most people do, shop for convenience and speed. I hadn’t been making nearly as many things from scratch. I’ve really enjoyed having homemade nut milks among other things on hand. One of my favorite things to make with homemade milk is chia pudding. It makes a delicious and filling breakfast. Another thing I’ve done to help myself have more time in the kitchen is on occasion I get some of my groceries delivered. I still buy almost all of my staples at Aldi, but this really helps me to cut down on running to 3 different grocery stores, which can take up most of 1 weekend day, when you don’t have a car. What grocery delivery service do I use? Artizone! I love them. They are
Since the first batch of coconut milk was so thick, creamy and delicious, I wanted to recreate it as a thinner version. While the thick and creamy version is more like a whole milk or half and half, perfect for drizzling and coffee creamer, it would be very heavy for cereal. This time, I soaked 1/2 cup cashews over night, rinsed and blended with 3 cups cold water. This came out more like a 1% milk. Perfect for daily use. I may still make another smaller batch of the thicker consistency for my coffee. Has anyone else made cashew milk? What is your favorite ratio?
