Homemade Vanilla Almond Butter and Brazil Nut Milk

Updated: May 2, 2019



I love making my own nut milk and nut butter because I know exactly what's in it. It only takes a few ingredients to make some fresh and delicious plant-based milk and butter. When I make my own ingredients from scratch, I tend to use them more because I can taste the actual ingredients in it which makes me crave it more than the store bought ones.


While you still can use a high-powered blender like a Vitamix to make your own nut milks and nut butters, the Nutramilk machine takes away the burden of having to do extra work like straining nut pulp from the nut milk. Before the Nutramilk I only made fresh nut milk twice and dreaded the thought of having to strain the nut milk without making a mess. Now I love using The Nutramilk to make a variety of fresh ingredients since it is quicker and it does all of the work for me.
