Life Changing Kitchen Hack: The Easiest Nut Milk You Will Ever Make

While it's hard to deny the many benefits of DIY food projects, many of us still resort to buying too many pre-packaged convenience foods because, well, they're just that: convenient. Even though making food at home is generally more cost-effective, generates less waste, and results in fresher, more nutrient-rich and even tastier meals, let's be honest, with busy schedules and the crazy-fast pace of life it's just not always possible to make everything from scratch. However, sometimes a life changing kitchen hack brings together the best of both worlds: fresh, homemade food that's free of all additives that also happens to be lightning quick to make. This is one of those hacks.

While it's exciting to have so many plant based, dairy-free milk options available these days, it can be disheartening to learn that many of not all that great for you. A quick skim down the ingredient list will reveal synthetic vitamins and "natural" flavors at best, and some questionable thickening agents (like carrageenan) and a heavy sugar load at worst. Not to mention these products are ultra-pasteurized for extended shelf life and are therefore not as nutrient-rich. When you need fresh nut milk, and you need it fast, there's a much better alternative: using our Dastony Stone Ground Nut Butters. Prepare to have your mind blown in the best way possible.

Our stone grinders do all of the prep work for you. This slow, low temperature grinding process breaks down the fibers of the nuts and seeds completely so that you're left with a perfectly silky, creamy, non-gritty, melt-in-the-mouth texture. Basically put, the texture achieved through stone grinding enables our butters to act as the perfect base for an instant nut milk when blended with water. Since the butters are 100% raw and organic with zero additives, the flavor is also ultra-fresh and delicious tasting. Not to mention loaded with healthy fats, protein, vitamins and minerals. No more soaking, rinsing, blending, and straining. And best of all, no more processed dairy alternatives!

For those of us that are always short on time, simply blend a spoonful of the Dastony flavor of your choice with water and you have instant nut milk. Yep, it's really that easy.

Now for the fun part: making it even more flavorful. You can easily create different milk flavors by adding in a few other ingredients like vanilla, cacao powder, sweeteners like raw honey or maple syrup, or even fresh ingredients like berries or your favorite spices, such as cinnamon, nutmeg or cardamom.

Here are two basic recipes to get your started!
