We embrace milk at Mondays! As well as organic whole milk, you can also enjoy our espresso coffee, tea, herbal coffee, smoothies and oatmeal with fresh made nut milk, organic GMO free soy or organic oat milk. We hand make litres of nut milk every day, for our dairy free smoothies, hot drinks & baking.
We even sell our own special blends by the glass bottle for you to enjoy at home.
Nut milk is deliciously nutty, highly nutritious, and perfect if you're lactose intolerant, vegan or would simply like to try something new. All you need is raw nuts, a blender, a fine mesh sieve or muslin cloth (you can also buy nut milk bags) and filtered water. Pretty much any type of nut works fantastically. We especially love almonds, cashews, macadamias, walnuts, hazelnuts and Brazil nuts.
THE PLANT-POWERED MILK METHOD
Soak: soaking releases enzyme inhibitors and makes nutrients more bio-avaliable to your body.
Rinse: rinse soaked ingredients well. Do not use the soak water to make your milk because all those enzyme inhibitors will be floating around in there - use fresh water.
Ratio: 1 litre of filtered water for every cup of nuts.
Blend: Add 25% of the water along with the soaked nuts and blend on high until super smooth and creamy. Add the rest of the water and any add ins and blend again.
Strain: Using your nut milk bag, muslin or cheesecloth, draped over a bowl or jar, pour the blended contents through the fabric. If we are doing large amounts, a rubber band is really helpful to keep the cloth in place.
Squeeze: twisting your bag or cloth, wring all the liquid from the pulp.
Bottle and Chill: Plant-based milks need refrigeration and are best consumed within three days. Some milks will separate as they sit, so give them a good shake before serving.
MAKE YOUR MILK INSANELY DELICIOUS
Salt: During blending, add a pinch of fine ground sea salt - it enhances the flavour.
Sweeten: this is entirely optional, but some great natural add ins to try include fresh or dried dates, honey, pure maple syrup, sucanat, coconut nectar, rice malt syrup, coconut sugar or stevia.
Enrich: If you like a creamy kick, add 1 Tbsp of coconut butter to help make your milk richer and creamier.
Spice: This is where the magic happens. Cardamon, cinnamon, ginger, cloves, cacao, vanilla, chilli, nutmeg, zest.
