      4. It says:

      I’ll bet the reason it’s called “Almond Milk” is because no one could ever say “Nut Juice” and keep a straight face.

      How are you SW?  Happy New Year

    7. "Seed milk" is also used.

    What’s interesting is that nut and seed milks have been used for centuries. It’s not a modern invention :)

    Here, have a look at this from Harold McGee’s book “On Food and Cooking: The Science and Lore of the Kitchen.” (I had transcribed the following for another online use where people were upset that vegetarians were calling nut juice “milk” ;) )

    “In medieval Europe, which learned about them from the Arabs, almond milks and creams were both luxurious ingredients and dairy substitutes for fasting days. Today, the most common seed milk is made from coconuts, but it can be made from any oil-rich nut and from soybeans.

    “Modern cooks can use nut milks to make rich and delicious ices, and to enrich sauces and soups. Thanks to the tendency of the nut proteins to coagulate, cooks can thicken nut milks with acid into the equivalent of yogurt, and cook them into a cross between a pudding and a custard. Almonds with their high protein content produce the most easily thickened milk. Other nut milks can be boiled to coagulate the proteins into curds, then the curds can be drained of excess fluid, blended until smooth, and heated gently to thicken them further. To impart more flavor to the milk, a small fraction of the nuts can be roasted before grinding.”

    Almond Milk and Cream in Medieval Times
    Blancmange
    Take capons and seeth them, then take them up. Take blanched almonds, grind them, and mix them with the same broth. Cast this milk in a pot. Wash rice, and add, and let it seeth. Then take brawn of capons, tear it small and add. Take lard, sugar and salt, and cast therein. Let it seeth. Then assemble it and decorate it with aniseed confected white or red, and with fried almonds, and serve it forth.
    –The Forme of Cury, ca. 1390

    Cream of Almond Milk
    Take almond milk, and boil it, and when it is boiled take it from the fire, and sprinkle on a little vinegar. Then spread it on a cloth, and cast sugar on it, and when it is cold gather it together, and leche [slice] it in dishes, and serve it forth.
    –From a medieval manuscript, published in R. Warner, Antiquities Culinariae, 1791

    8. From Schweddy?

    The proud purveyor of Schweddy Balls?

    Nothing goes better with a mouthful of Schweddy Balls than a big swallow of Schweddy Nut Juice.

    9. I wondered how little their hands must be to milk an almond.

    14. There's a package

    Sitting on my kitchen counter right now labeled “Nut milk bag”.

      15. I discovered my reusable produce bags work just as well.

      They are Flip & Tumble Reusable Produce Bags and seem to be the same weave as those ‘nut bags.’ I don’t know if the price is better, but I also don’t use them for almond milk anymore. After watching a video on making coconut milk with both a VitaMix and an Omega juicer, I use that technique now. It does a better job than I ever could trying to squeeze the milk out of the pulp in the bag after it’s run through the VitaMix.

      Here’s a video of using both, though it’s a bit long. He does a good job of explaining why it’s best to use both appliances. I tried it, and the pulp came out of the juicer, quite literally, ‘dry’ :)

        16. Thanks!

        We recently acquired a Vita mix.

        Wife has been making all sorts of stuff with it.

          17. You're welcome :)

          I use mine mostly for making frozen smoothies. Just freeze the fruits you’re going to use, though I generally only do that with bananas and pineapples, and guy the other frozen fruits. It’s a great replacement to a shake, and you can then start adding greens and other ingredients, like hemp seeds. Of course, you can also make green smoothies without freezing anything, but I do it to avoid using ice. I thin it out with coconut or other nut milks.
