Green Nut Milk Recipe
Here is another great way to get more greens into your diet.
Yes, using your Kuvings cold press juicer is the easiest and healthiest way to make flavoured nut milk. I am talking about plant-based, vegan nut milk made in your juicer and flavoured with juices.
You will love this green nut milk recipe, it is super simple to make and taste great.
The texture of this juice recipe is way better than a smoothie as it is not thick, not filled with air and the best part is your digestive system doesn’t have to eliminate the undigestable green fibre because the juicer has already extracted it. What is left behind is pure liquid nutrition to feed your cells, especially your muscle cells.
I like to think of it as the green hulk juice!
- 1 cup mixed nuts (almonds, brazil, cashew)
- 1 cup water
- 3 kale leaves
- 2 spinach, handfuls
- 1 cucumber
- 1 apple
Juicing Time: 2 mins
Juice Qty: 700ml
Nuts (use any combination)
- Place nuts in a small bowl and cover with water
- Allow soaking for 8 hrs or overnight
- If you forgot to soak the nuts overnight, you can use hot water and soak them for 1 hour
- The nuts will plump as they absorb water and should feel a little squishy if you pinch them.
- Discard the soaking water
- Cut away leaf from the main stalk (you can juice the stalk, but will add bitterness)
- Roughly chop the leaves
- Fill a sink with water and wash well
- Roughly chop leaves and roots
- Juice handfuls at a time
- Cut into chunks to fit down the chute
- Juice with skin on
- Remove the stems and remove any stickers
- Juice apples whole with skin and seeds.
- Cut in half or quarters if too big to fit into the wide chute.
Make the nut milk first.
Close the cap on the juicer. Add a handful of nuts followed quickly by some water. Repeat adding nuts, water, nuts water until you have finished with both. Allow the juicer to mix for 30 secs before opening the cap and releasing the milk.
Close the cap again.
Add the kale and the spinach, one handful at a time of each. When all the greens are added you can add the apple followed by the cucumber.
Let the juicer mix the ingredients together before releasing the juice into the jug to make your green nut milk
Tip: the nut meal can be used to sprinkle onto salads, fresh fruits, or added to smoothies, for a nutritional boost.
All nuts are brain food. Go nuts!
Almonds in particular strengthen nerves and bones and help reduce inflammation of blood vessels.
Cashews are excellent for the nervous system and they are known help keep muscles and nerves relaxed and free from tension and constriction.
Brazil nuts are the highest natural source of selenium which makes it an ideal food for strengthening the immune system and helping to reduce the risk of many cancers.
Contrary to the standard belief that “nuts are fattening”, 30ml (2 tbsp) of nuts a day can actually help to decrease body fat and aid in weight loss by helping the body to feel satiated for longer periods of time.
Kale is brain food.
A nutritionally packed leafy vegetable that contains incredible healing and rejuvenating properties. Kale is rich in omega-3 fatty acids, chlorophyll, amino acids, vitamins A, C, E, K, B-complex and minerals such as iron, magnesium, copper, and potassium.
Kale is among the most nutrient-dense foods on the planet.
The most beneficial component is its ability to relieve inflammation, thanks to its antioxidants.
Kale also provides a good amount of plant-based omega-3 fatty acids in the form of alpha linolenic-acid (ALA), vital for good brain health.
Spinach contains twice as much plant-based iron as most other greens. It can help restore energy, increase vitality and improve the quality of blood flow.
Spinach creates an alkaline environment in the body and provides highly absorbable micronutrients to the nervous system.
Spinach can help build blood cells and even stop bleeding. It has a cooling nature that can cleanse the blood of toxins that cause skin diseases such as eczema and psoriasis.
Spinach also has plenty of vitamin A, which is beneficial for night blindness. Along with other green leafy veggies, spinach is one of the foods eaten by people who don’t get cancer. It has four times more beta-carotene and three times more lutein than broccoli.
Cucumber juice is highly alkalinizing and very hydrating. When your blood is well hydrated it can carry more oxygen which increases energy levels, kills bacteria and viruses and improves circulation.
Cucumbers can counteract toxins and lift depression; cleanse the blood; quench thirst, moisten the lungs, and purify the skin.
Cucumber juice also cools most inflammatory or heat-related conditions, including stomach inflammation, conjunctivitis, sore throat, acne, and inflamed skin diseases. Hence the saying cool as a cucumber.
Cucumbers are also allies to the liver due to their ability to hydrate it. Your liver’s always in need of living water that’s filled with minerals and other nutrients because your liver keeps your blood hydrated. It relies on sources such as cucumber for that living water.
Plus you get lots of juice without any calories.
Apples are the "Queen of the Fruits". The old saying "an apple a day..." is truly ancient wisdom as they protect and heal every human body system and cell.
Apples are a true healing food.
Apple juice provides living water to support the liver’s hydration capabilities, so it can store the water and then release it back into the bloodstream when the blood becomes dehydrated and isn’t flowing very well.
Apples are high in a soluble fibre (still in the juice) called pectin that forms a gel-like substance in the intestine. This gel can bind to cholesterol, removing it from the body, which may aid in reducing blood pressure levels.
Apples also starve viruses. When their pectin fibers enter the digestive system, they release phytochemicals that bind onto viruses, shrouding viral cells so that they can’t feed and proliferate.
They are also high in malic acid that binds with any heavy metals in the brain. The word 'malic' comes from the Latin word 'malum', meaning 'apple' which is why I recommend to people who have brain or neurological symptoms to consume more apples.
