Nut Milk

The newest addition to my diet has been almond milk. I’ve been making about 2 cups per day and it is so wonderful! For those who haven’t tried homemade almond milk, it tastes nothing like the store bought stuff (such as Blue Diamond Almond Breeze). When I first tasted my homemade almond milk I recognized the taste immediately. It’s like the milk left over after you have a bowl of Honey Nut Cheerios! So good! It tastes exactly like the flavoring of Honey Nut Cheerios, my favorite childhood cereal. Actually it was probably my favorite food of all time pre-SCD.

Almond Milk
1/2 cup almonds
2 cups water
1/8 tsp salt
1 tsp honey

Put almonds and water in a blender. Blend on high for 3-5 minutes or until most of the almonds pieces disappear. Pour the liquid into a nut milk bag in a container. Strain the liquid into the container by ‘milking’ the nut bag. It gives a good forearm workout! Mix in salt and honey, and enjoy.

I have tried adding squash to my diet but think I’m having some problems with it. I’ll leave it for now and try again later. So far I’m eating: lots of meat, broth, SCD goat yogurt, goat cheddar cheese, eggs (once a week), carrots, tomatoes, artichokes, baked apples, very ripe bananas, diluted 100% fruit juice, honey and nut milk. I also added in some desiccated liver tablets, which is basically dehydrated liver. I figure I’m dealing with such a change in diet and cooking that I really can’t be bothered learning how to make (and like) liver. I’m also not having onions or butter and only having eggs once a week, so making liver pate or other good liver recipes is out for now. So I’m planning on taking these tablets for the next little while until I stop being lazy.


I have been following the Specific Carbohydrate Diet since January 2008 to recover from Celiac disease. As part of the diet, I don't eat grains, sugar or potatoes and prepare all my meals from scratch.
