I tend to collect fun kitchen equipment and one of the ones I use the most is called a Soyabella. We use it to make Almond Milk. Most Almond Milks contain an ingredient called ‘carrageenan’. Some people say this is linked to cancer, so when you make your own Almond Milk, you can know what you’re putting into it.
On WebMD, they say there are two kinds of carrageenan. One if safe, but the chemically altered one is linked to cancer. I like to buy nuts in bulk, so making nut milk is very quick and since it’s gone in a few days, there is not need to add any chemicals to preserve it longer.
Here’s a quick video to show you how easy it is to make nut milk in the Soyabella. It’s ready in just a couple minutes and is easy to clean, too!
Besides nut milks, it also makes soy milk, tofu, and it a quick way to have fresh soups ready in 15 minutes. Here are the simple steps from the video:
1, Add filtered water to the Soyabella (Shown in video)
2. Add 1/4 cup of Almonds and a pitted Date to the ‘milk’ screen (You can also use half a Vanilla Bean Pod instead.)
3. Press the ‘Mill’ button 3 or 4 times
4. Pour and enjoy!
We keep the left over almond pulp for smoothies or to put on top of oatmeal.
