A number of nutritarian recipes use nut, seed or soy bean milk.


Purchasing Nut, Soy or Seed MIlk

Most processed nut, soy or seed milks have sugar, salt or other additives, like carrageenan, that are better to avoid. Here is a link to an article about the health concerns of carrageenan

It is possible to purchase organic, plain,  unsweetened, soy milk that is made from soy beans and water.  There are at least 3 brands of soy milk available that are made from just organic soybeans and water - Trader Joe's, Eden Soy, and Westbrae Natural/West Soy. These milks are typically sold in boxed containers on shelves of the grocery store, and not in the refrigerated section.

Although it is relatively easy to purchase plain organic unsweetened soy milk in San Francisco, it is much cheaper to make it. In addition, the packaging that the milk comes in, which makes for a long shelf life, are not recyclable or compostable - so they have to go in the trash.

To make chocolate nutri-milk, add 2-3 tablespoons natural cocoa powder along with other ingredients. 

Soy MIlk

I make soy milk in a soy milk maker machine. Follow the instructions on your machine. It costs about 50 cents per batch to make which is much cheaper then store bought soy milk. Plus, I'm not throwing out the tetra packs. 

I use a soyajoy4 soy milk maker. 

1 and 1/2 cups soy beans soaked over night. Add soaked and drained soybeans to the soy milk machine and fill water up to the line. Make soy milk. Strain milk in a nut milk bag. Store in a glass jar with a plastic lid.
