- 1 cup whole raw nuts
- 4 cups water, divided
Place nuts (almonds are shown, but you can also use cashews, pistachios, or hazelnuts) with an equal amount of boiling water in a blender. Let stand 30 minutes.
Add 3 cups room-temperature or cold water; blend until frothy.
Strain mixture through a fine sieve lined with cheesecloth into a bowl, pressing down on solids with a flexible spatula; discard solids.
Chill (up to 5 days) and shake before serving. Try nut milk in smoothies, over cereal, in coffee, or just by itself.
