I recently purchased a "soymilk" maker. Although, I do not drink soymilk I was advised that the machine produces excellent nut milk. I tried it this weekend and was amazed at the taste and ease of making almond milk. I would highly recommend this to anyone who seeks a non dairy milk based product/drink. It is great in coffee, as a base for smoothies and I even used a Tablespoon to "cream" spinach. I'd assume it would be great in baking as well.
The machine is called "SoyQuick" and cost $95.
All it uses is water and almonds (I used preblanched, sliced almonds). Put everything in machine and 14 min. later you have fresh, foamy almond milk!! You can sweeten the milk if you want; I do not find that need!
Now if I could only make "yogurt" from this milk! WOuld anyone have an idea how to ferment this milk to make yogurt without using a dairy based product? I have read about a product called "progurt" but it seems to be dairy based.
