Basic Almond Milk
Directions:
1. Place almonds in a bowl and cover with water. It’s preferred to soak them
overnight (for 8-12 hours) in the water, but you can get away with soaking for
1-2 hours in a pinch.
2. Rinse and drain the almonds and place into a blender along with filtered
water and pitted dates (optional).
3. Blend on highest speed for 1 minute or so.
4. Place your Vita Nut Milk Bag over a large bowl and slowly pour the almond
milk mixture into the bag. Hold the top of the bag closed and gently squeeze
the bottom of the bag to release the milk.
5. Pour into a glass, airtight jar to store in the fridge for up to 3-5 days. Shake
jar very well before using as the mixture separates when sitting.
Notes: If your dates are dry/stiff, soak in water to soften before use. You can
also use another sweetener of your choice like maple syrup, honey or agave.

How To Sprout Nuts, Seeds, Legumes &
Grains
Directions:
1. Soak the seeds for 12 hours/overnight in filtered water, in a lidded jar. After that
time you may see seed skins floating in the water, if you can, try to remove them
(they could become moldy if not removed).
2. You can add the seeds to a bowl of warm water and gently rub the seeds to allow
the seed skins to come off. Discard the seed skins.
3. Add your seeds to your Vita Nut Milk Bag. Rinse the Bag and tie it up by its
drawstring to hang over a bowl underneath to catch the water droplets.
4. Every 8 hours (or about twice a day, for two days or so) rinse the Bag. Properly
rinsing and draining water from the bag will help improve the sprout flavour and
prevent them from rotting.
5. Once they have sprouted, you will begin to see little tails on the pointy side of the
seed, legume, or nut.
