    I recently shared this tip from EC with readers of my
    crockpot recipe newsletter, and it's such a good tip I
    want to share it with you too. Apologies to those who get
    to read it twice. [img]smile.gif[/img]

    Thanks for the Vitamix recipe! Almond milk is
    excellent! You can do the same thing with
    peanuts and sunflower seeds for milk. If you
    make peanut milk, then you add banana and
    honey, and it is incredibly d'licious!

    I've never tried peanut milk, but you can be sure
    that'll happen this weekend. My thought is to add
    a frozen banana (frozen without skin, of course) to
    the mix and end up with a banana shake. Whoa!

    I guess I should share the original recipe for almond
    milk, eh? This recipe could also be created in a good
    blender. It was contributed by Kathy J, and here it is

    Chet,

    I LOVE my Vita Mix, also! I haven't gotten
    too creative with it, but I would love some new
    receipes to use my VitaMix for.

    One thing I do make in my Vita Mix is fresh
    almond milk.

    Take raw almonds (must be raw) and soak them in
    water for 1-12 hours. I put some in a little
    container, cover with water and put them in the
    refrigerator overnight. Drain the almonds, put
    them in the VitaMix with a little fresh water
    and blend. You can make it as thin or thick as
    you desire. You can use this "milk" in any
    recipe that calls for milk.

    If you use a blender or want the almond milk quite thin,
    pour through several layers of cheese cloth. You can use
    the discarded almond pulp in cookies or whatever. [img]smile.gif[/img]

    Hey Carol [img]graemlins/wave.gif[/img]

    Nope, decided not to get a VM, just can't justify the price. But, I thought all y'all VM'ers would like that post on making nut milks.

    Well, I sure appreciate your thinking of us!

    And, Momma...I can't think of another person who would push-it's-parameters more than you! [img]graemlins/bcbsalute.gif[/img] For SURE, it wouldn't sit on a counter and collect dust!
