After blending your mix smooth, pour it into the nut milk bag and knead the pulp to release all the nutritious juices. This results in ultra-smooth, delicious juice. Just pour and enjoy!
Herbs have been used for centuries for their flavor and enhancement of food and dishes. Sometimes, however, when herbs are added to infuse a dish, they may leave a gritty or twiggy residue.

By using a nut milk bag to hold your herbs, you can tie the bag’s top closed and let the herb bag simmer in the food dish. This method can prevent the need to fish out the loose herbs in the dish, allowing easy removal.
