Got Mylk?

Reporting from Vancouver and having a total blast! Want constant updates? You best be following me on twitter and instagram! It's been a wonderful week full of inspiration.

The team of Vega Educators had Andrea Potter of Rooted Nutrition into HQ kitchen for a great class on sprouting, and creating your own homemade milk-made from nuts! got MYLK?

Sprouting takes nuts, seeds and grains, and turns them from dorment ingredients into LIVING nutrient dense foods. It neutralizes enzume inhinitors, increases vitamin content (especially vitamin B). and makes the protein, carbohydrates and fats much easier to digest. Forget RAW think-ALIVE!

 I was so excited to finally make my own non-dairy mylk! Andrea showed us how to soak and sprout nuts, seed and grains and then we made a delicious raw hazelnut mylk to put on sprouted buckwheat granola.
Emma and Megan mylking hazelnuts
  • 2 cups raw hazelnuts soaked overnight
  • 4 cups water
  • 2 dates-soaked in water
Drain the nuts and rinse them. Puree them in a blender until smooth. Using cheesecake or a fine mesh bag, strain and press the mylk away from the hazelnut meal. Enjoy on cereal, in coffee or in a smoothie!

 nom! Thanks Andrea for sharing your fantastic knowledge with us!
