If you can blend it, you can milk it. Almonds, cashews, macadamia nuts, hazelnuts, hemp seeds, soybeans and oats can all be liquefied with water and turned into plant-based milks.

“Blending up a variety of plant-based milks creates huge opportunity for nutrient diversity, as well as taste bud satisfaction,” says Tess Masters, author of The Blender Girl: Super-Easy, Super-Healthy Meals, Snacks, Desserts, and Drinks. “Homemade milks are delicious, and you can completely control the integrity of the product—the quality of the raw ingredients, the texture, flavor and sugar levels.”
