Notes and Expert Tips

- If you want to keep the dietary fiber, which can help with cholesterol levels, don't strain the homemade milk before enjoying
- All seeds and nuts have a different consistency and require different soaking times, so keep this in mind if you use this process to make oat milk, almond milk, soy milk, cashew milk, sunflower milk, and other homemade nut milk recipes
