You can use a variety of different raw nuts but I usually choose to use almonds (should be soaked overnight and rinsed). Put the nuts and twice the amount of water in a blender (i.e. one cup nuts to two cups of water). Blend for about thirty seconds. Next you can either use a nut milk bag (which are surely a little easier to deal with and available at www.purejoyplanet.com) or I used cheesecloth, which can easily be found at Whole Foods or a kitchen supply store. I lined a strainer with the doubled cheesecloth and poured the mixture slowly in, letting the milk drip into a bowl underneath. After most of the mixture has poured through, collect the edges of the cheesecloth and fold together to make a little pouch. Squeeze out the excess liquid. Ta-da! You have fresh, yummy, raw nut milk with no additives.
