Zimtal Nut Milk Bag Revew

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.


I've been longing to make my own almond milk. To be honest I was scared to make my own milk. I was thinking for sure I'd make a mess, or waist the nuts because I'd do something wrong.

There's a stabliizer put in rice, almond and soy milk called, "Carrageenan". I'm not going to pretend I know a whole lot about Carrageenan, but I do know that additives of any kind usually are not good. It's better if you can make your own of things. I'm not going to make my own milk 100% of the time, but I will when I have the time.

Making nut milk is actually pretty easy.

I am so lucky to have gotten Zimtal Nut Milk Bag for review. Zimtal made what seemed possibly hard to me, so easy! Along with their bag to make nut milk, they send a link to get a free PDF recipe book.

 There are recipes for:
  • Cashew Milk
  • Almond Milk
  • Pistachio Milk
I was going to make Almond Milk, but changed my mind when I saw that they had a recipe for Cashew Milk. All the recipes are similar: 1 cup nuts, 4 cups water, and add the sweetener of your choice.


I thought it was wonderful tasting! 

Here are the steps:

Soak 1 cup of nuts in tap water overnight.


2. Rinse the nuts, and put them in the blender with 4 cups filtered water.


3. Add your choice of sweetener, vanilla and salt. I added 2 Tablespoons of local honey, 2 teaspoons of vanilla and no salt for me.

Other Ways to Enjoy Nut Milk:
  • Chocolate Nut Milk: Use the recipe above, and add 2 Tablespoons of raw cacao nibs or unsweetened cocoa powder

  • Cinnamon Nut Milk: Use the recipe above, and add 1 teaspoon cinnamon and a dash of nutmeg

  • Chai Nut Milk: Use the recipe above, and add 1 teaspoon cinnamon, 1/2 teaspoon garam masala and 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg


4. Blend all the ingredients together.

 

5. Pour it into Zimtal Nut Milk Bag to strain it. I helped it with my fingers as shown in the photo below.


You now how your milk. I saved the cashew pulp for smoothies.

Do you happen to know how long the milk will stay fresh once you've made it?

Looks like a really good idea. I have always wanted to make my own milks as well.

This looks super! My daughter has been experimenting making her own almond milk. I just told her about these bags you mentioned.

We actually researched how to make almond milk after spending $4 for some at the grocers. I was surprised at how easy it was. We haven't tried it yet, but I do want to do it soon. Your cashew milk sounds so yummy!

Carla said...

That sounds delicious, and pretty easy. We might make some kind of nut milk soon! Thanks for the information.
