Almond Milk

almondmilk

Ingredients
2 C raw soaked almonds

Preparation
2 cups of raw almonds soaked 10 – 12 hours in 3 cups of mineral, filtered, or tap water allowed to sit overnight to dissipate any residual chlorine.
Pour 3 cups of water over 2 cups of raw almonds soaking overnight to rid of phytic acid. Rinse the almonds under running water in a sieve. Place these pre-soaked almonds with  3 cups of fresh water in a high speed blend [like a vita mixer]. Blend until it resembles a thick cream. Line a large sieve or colander with a double thickness cheesecloth or unbleached muslin, single thickness. Place this over a wide bowl and allow it to drain. Grab the corners of the cloth; hold together securely and squeeze to extract all of the almond milk, much like squeezing a tea bag. The remaining pulp can be used in raw candies, cookies or as a filler to give desserts a cookie like consistency. Transfer the almond milk to a container and refrigerate up to 3 days.

This makes a delicious almond milk. The almond milk will keep refrigerated for 3 days. If you wish to use a machine to make a grain, seed, or nut milks, the soy milk maker machine heats the grain beverage milk product slightly. It requires  overnight pre-soaking of  the nuts, grains or almonds. One can produce fresh almond milk  for a fraction of the cost of commercial varieties and the taste is far superior. Use the left over almond pulp  for cooking, baking, or even as a luxurious facial or body scrub.  Hard nuts, like almonds, are better when soaked for approximately 4 hours and rinsed; this makes the milk easier to digest. You can use both blanched and un-blanched almonds along with almond pieces, slivered almonds or even mix and match with your other favorite nuts. Un-blanched almonds produce a darker, nuttier milk, whereas blanched almonds produce a whiter, creamier milk. The total amount of almonds used is approximately 1 cup; this will fill the filter cup about 2/3 full. Some people prefer unheated almond milk.  Automatic soy  milk Maker is a machine useful for making almond, barley, or rice milk. It gives you the choice – simply push the start button to produce cooked milk, or use the motor button to grind the nuts, producing an unheated almond milk.

BlenTec blender (high speed blender) has another recipe for almond milk. Soak the almonds overnight. Here is a youtube video.
Ingredients
1 C almonds soaked

Preparation
After soaking 1 cup of almonds overnight, strain and rinse the almonds. Add 4 cups of water and 1 tsp tupelo honey. Blend on high whole fruit. Press blend again until mixture is totally smooth. No need to strain this almond milk recipe.

Chia Fresca–Iskiate

Ingredients
10 oz of water
1 Tbsp dry chia seeds
Tsp lemon or lime juice
Tupelo honey to taste

Preparation:
Stir the chia seeds into the water; let them sit for about five minutes.  Stir again, and let sit for as long as you like.  The more it sits, the more gel-like the seeds and water become.  Add citrus juice and sweetener if you wish.

Chia Seed Oil
Chia oil is an interesting source for omega 3’s. Some have tried fish oil (really causes severe liver aches). all variety of forms of flax seed and its oil and capsules. These too seem to cause intense liver pains, liver growth and bloating. Currently hemp seed oil capsules,tend to give the munchies and a craving for sweets. Raw foodie caterers (raw fruits and vegetables only) from a local farmer’s market recommended some give Chia seeds a try.

Chia Seed Oil Capsules
Chia seed is one food that is super high in leucine. Leucine has been found to be helpful to create more muscle mass in middle aged men and help dialysis patients.
Chia seed is high in calcium, 5 times the calcium of milk. 631 mg per 100 grams of seed.
Chia seed is also high in protein, with 18 grams per 100 grams of seed.
The optimum ratio of Omega-3 to Omega-6 should be 3:1
Chia seed provides that ratio.
Chia seed is hydrophilic. Absorbing up to 14 times (Mix @ 9-10 times) its weight in water. This helps extend energy and endurance.
Chia seed is rich in antioxidant oils.
Chia seed contains chlorogenic acid, and
caffeic acid as well as myricetin, quercetin, and kaempferol flavonols. These compounds are both primary and synergistic antioxidants that contribute to the strong antioxidant activity of chia seed.
Chia seed is also low in sodium, only 19 mg per 100 grams.
A few my remember when Chia seeds were spread as a paste of clay figurines creating chia pets. This is the exact same chia. One can purchase chia in its natural seed form or grind them up and sprinkle them salads. Some people prefer the convenience taking chia oil capsules. Anutra Whole Salvia Hispanica Seed is all chia. It is an ancient Aztec product. It can be added to smoothies or sprinkle on top of salads or added to a sandwich. This is a good source of omega 3’s and essential fatty acids needed daily. Born to Run a book about the  Tarahumara Indians from a remote village in Mexico are a running tribe. For their fuel for long distance runs reaching 500 miles they drink chia seeds with water and lime. Read about one runner’s recipes from the meatless runner. Chia seeds have the interesting property that when they’re left in water for a few minutes, the water begins to gel.  Supposedly this is helpful in digestion, but I’m wondering if somehow chia could be used to make an energy gel.  (I’ll let you know if I perfect that one.)  For now, you’ll have to be satisfied with chia fresca (or iskiate), a popular drink made with chia seeds, water, and lemon or lime. Born to Run Born to Run is interesting reading.

Fun fact: years ago this was known as a chia pet, you would apply chia seeds to a lamb figurine. The lamb would grow wool of chia sprouts.
