My New Roots Cooking Show – How to Make Nut Milk


My New Roots – How to Make Nut Milk from My New Roots on Vimeo.

My dear readers, I am indescribably thrilled to release the second video for the My New Roots Cooking Show! As the response was overwhelming, I decided to show you just how easy it is to make nut milk at home in your blender. I’m serious. This truly is one simple kitchen technique that changed my life forever, and I am so excited to share it with you!

All you need to make nut milk is your favorite nut (or a combination – get creative!), water, a blender, and a strainer. Of course a nut milk bag is the most convenient, but don’t let that stop you – there are all kinds of things you can use instead, which I mention in the video above. You can even flavour the nut milk with vanilla, raw honey, agave, or dates. Delicious!

Now here’s where you come in: First, I would really love your feedback because it gives me a good idea of how to improve the videos, so you can enjoy them more. And I would love to hear how your nut milk turned out! What nut did you use, did you add any flavours, was it easy, tasty?! Leave your comments below.
Second, I kindly ask you to pass the link around to your friends, family, mailman – anyone you think would like a tall, cold drink of nut milk. Spread the word through an email, your Facebook wall, Twitter…go nuts! Oops, sorry. You get the idea.

I hope you get the same kick out of making nut milk that I do. Once you taste the difference between home made and store bought nut milk, I am pretty sure you’ll be convinced to make the switch! You can use nut milk anywhere you use regular milk – in cooking, baking, smoothies, coffee & tea, and of course on your breakfast cereal. Not to mention that the nut milk you make yourself is totally natural, raw, sugar-free, additive-free, and preservative-free, so it’s the best choice for your health. Always.

Thanks for watching! Wahoo!
In love and gratitude, Sarah B

The My New Roots Cooking Show – How to Cook Quinoa


My New Roots – How to Cook Quinoa from My New Roots on Vimeo.

A new day has dawned, people. Have I got a surprise for you.

Behold, the My New Roots-style cooking show. No 10-minute blab-a-thons. No bad lighting. No deep-fryers or microwaves. No clip art. No unnecessary information. No kids screaming in the background. No elevator music.

Nope. I would like to make some serious changes around here, so I’ve set out to make a video series that is under two minutes (because we’re all busy people), a pleasure to watch (because you want food porn in motion, I get it) and that teaches the basic techniques that I use so often in my own kitchen and in My New Roots recipes. Clear. Concise. Pretty. Deal?

Please, please, please give me your feedback on this one! I want to know what you think of this endeavor, and what you would like to see in the future. How to make nut milk? How to cook beans? Granola? Green Smoothies? Almond butter?
I know that I am feeling all kinds of excitement over these little films and I hope you can get on board with me too. I give you full permission to post this on Facebook, your own blog or website too – spread the word! Let’s make some changes! Today, a new kind of cooking show is born. Yay.
