Over the weekend I had the pleasure of making and recording. Of course I had to record it for my YouTube family so they could see how I did it.
Now, Back to the point of it all, how to make flaxseed milk and also almond milk. I have to admit. Homemade is thee best way to go. Do you know? It tasted way better. The only down part about it. It only last in the refrigerator for 4 days. That’s it!
To be quite honest with you. It did not last 4 days at all. That milk was so delicious it only last about 4 hours. I couldn’t resist.
Let me tell you about my experience making the flaxseed milk. I did not do how most people would do. I grind my flaxseeds up before (by itself) I add the water. This is everything I used to make it.
1 cup of flaxseeds
2 or 3 cups of water
Honey or Agave as sweetener (whatever your preference)
It was the same process as the almond milk. 1 part seeds and 2 or 3 part water. However you make it. Make sure you double the water.
This experience really broaden my arisen of the homemade realm of things. It was fun but I really saved money doing this. The only down side of it. Since there is no preservatives in it. It only last for 4 days in the refrigerator, if that.
I took one (1) cup of flaxseeds in the little measuring cup. Put it in my grinder and completely grounded the seeds until it was like dust. Poured it in my magic bullet. Came out to about half of cup of grounded flaxseeds. Added 2 cups of water. Blended very well. About 1 1/2 minutes. Added honey. Then blended again to mix it well.
I used a mesh cloth or stocking cap (un-used of course). Placed it around my measuring cup. Completely poured my mixture in the stocking cap. At last, I began to strain the milk from the grounded seeds.
Of course, I saved my grounded seeds to make homemade flaxseed muffins. I’m telling you it was so good. I was pleased to have made it myself. The satisfaction of it. Topped the magnitude…
