I've been a big fan of homemade nut milks for some time now. But I haven't made any in awhile.
So I bought a new nut bag and a pound of organic almonds from Whole Foods.
But then I had this wacky idea of putting some Wild Matcha into the recipe. So I did some research to see if anyone else had done this and if they had added something sweet to the recipe as well. I found a few recipes here and there. Some made the nut process far too complicated, and since I had made it in the past, I knew it was much easier to do than what people were suggesting.
After making this recipe, I said out loud, to myself, in my empty apartment, "OH MY GOD."
That's how good this is.
I've been cooking for a long time now and it's not often I have this reaction. In fact, I'm so in love with this recipe that I find myself thinking about it often. But then I get scared of my thoughts because I know they are inching me towards the fridge where I'm invariably going to drink every last drop in a very short period of time.
