As I mentioned, my parents were in town earlier this week and made us some amazing juiced gazpacho. I’ve been holding out on this next thing, though, because it is so important to our juicing cleanse that only a whole new post would do it justice. I hope you’re ready, because I can hardly contain myself. My parents also gave us a NUT MILK BAG. I’ll pause to wait for all LOLs to wrap up. Nuts. Milk. Bag. Bah-ha! Okay.
Ready? Oh, good. Ahem. Nut milk bag. Awesome, awesome, awesome.
What this gem of a product is, if you haven’t yet guessed or googled (and undoubtedly gotten some interesting search results) is a fine mesh bag with which you make homemade raw nut milk. You can also use cheese cloth, but a bag is washable, reusable, and generally very convenient. After opening the package, not five minutes later Andy had retrieved a glass bowl and measured out water for our first batch. See, my parents were extra smart and also bought us some raw almonds.
We can definitively say that after 13 straight days of juicing, there is no love like nut milk love. It is creamy, slightly sweet, and fills some nutritional gap or flavor profile we’ve obviously been missing. This will likely be a daily snack from here on out – I think just a cup or so will eradicate our occasional cravings for something more substantial.
I am SO happy right now! Here’s the how-to:
Andy froze the remains for future use in cookies, bars, pastas, and whatever else. I know – hold the phone. Did you catch a theme throughout this post? The theme is ANDY DOING KITCHEN THINGS, and it is something to behold. [Obligatory joke about boys and their nuts] I encourage you all to juice fast your male partners for two weeks and then place in front of them a bag of raw nuts and the nut milk bag with instructions. Please send photos.
hahahaha this is great.

When you’re back on the solid foods, the nut pulp hummus is the bomb dot com.
Good job guys!!
Jenny, that’s an awesome site! Nut pulp hummus? Um, absolutely. You are cordially invited to partake.
The flavor profile you’re appreciating is also full of protein – and that makes ME happy! Love you and glad you like it’s so good!
No, I have not been drinking wine – My fingers did a hiccup! Anyway – I’m glad you like it so well – OR think it’s so good! 🙂
Thanks, Mom! We’ve got a growing stock of frozen nut pulp that I hope to give back to you in baked form.
Sounds yummy –
