Hi there! I am excited to share this easy, money saving, naturally low carb, Homemade Flax Milk Recipe today!
Not only is homemade flax milk less expensive and tastier than store bought flax milk, it's so healthy! It contains Omega 3's and a dose of healthy soluble fiber too.
This recipe is a short and sweet, two ingredient deal. Let's get started.
- 4 ½ cups Water
- ½ cup Ground Flax Seed - 8 tbsp
👨🏿🍳How to Make Flax Milk:
1.) Blend flax seed powder and water in your blender on high for two minutes and allow to rest for 5 minutes. Blitz again and allow to rest for 10 minutes.
2.) Blitz a final time and pour through a nut bag, squeezing out all of the liquid. The nut bag will help remove some of the viscous particles.
You can use cheese cloth to strain the milk but it's a bit messy. I like to use this "nut milk bag".
Just make sure it is completely clean of any flax particles before you toss it in the washing machine.
Flax tends to gel when wet and may cause you plumbing problems if you don't let the bag dry and dump any of the remaining particles in the trash bin before washing.
3.) Serve or chill for up to three days in an airtight container. Shake before serving. See post for flavoring ideas and tips.
This Flax Milk, like any nut or seed milk needs to be shaken before serving.
Tips & FAQ's:
How long is the Flax Milk good for in the fridge?
This flax milk can be stored for up to three days in the refrigerator.
This Milk is bland!
Yep. It can be. Just like plain, unsweetened almond, coconut or cashew milk...it takes some getting used to if you are going to drink it plain.
But...you can liven it up with a dash of Allulose, cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla or unsweetened cocoa powder (my favorite option).
What can I do with the leftover flax pulp?
I know that you don't want to waste the flax pulp after you strain it out of the milk. So, either use it right away or store in the fridge, uncovered so it can dry.
Use it within three days. You can put it in bread, crackers, smoothies or anything else that could use a boost of fiber.
Here are some easy recipes that call for ground flax:
- Pecan Pie Smoothie
- Keto Chocolate Cupcakes
- Quick Low Carb Sourdough Bread
- Nut & Seed Keto Bread
- Hot Porridge
- Easy Keto Pizza Crust
I think that's it for the Homemade Flax Milk!
Didn't I tell you it was easy?
I have been thinking a lot about fiber lately and I am certain that I haven't been getting enough. In fact, most people don't eat enough fiber and it's so important!
So, I have been looking for ways to squeeze in both soluble and insoluble fiber into my day. This one is so easy!
