NUTS FOR NUT MILK VOL. 2

During Xgames in Oslo this year Chanelle Sladics and I hosted a workshop and yoga class at High Yoga studio, in collaboration with LuLu Lemon. I am very passionate about health and how important it is to understand what all the different foods/ drinks and ingredients do to our bodies. Being a professional athlete for over 18 years has sought me that in order to perform my best I need to stay on top of my health. About 8 years ago I took this perspective to a new level and started eating organic, local, pure food that gives me energy and supports my health. In Oslo I decided to do a little nut milk workshop because it's sooooo simple to make and incredibly delicious!! I want people to see how easy and cheap it is to make at home, with very few ingredients. The milk I am making in this photo is a cashew, hemp milk made with hemp seeds provided by the raw chocolate company. Check out their other products on their website by clicking on this photo.

RECIPE: I am not a recipe follower, I kind of freestyle everything. So when it comes to ratio of nuts to water etc. I just eyeball it depending on how thick I want my milk to be. Usually you dont need many tries till you get your milk just perfect! 

A handful of raw cashew nuts (unsalted), drizzle of hemp seeds + cold water and any sweetener of your choice. I like pure, raw honey and coconut sugar or dates. Soak the cashews in water a couple of hour prior to making, this will mak them softer and milk smoother. Drain water and blend everything together.If you don;t like pulp, then drain in a but bag or strainer. AND VOILA - Enjoy chilled, over home made granola or in your favorite coffee or tea.
