Could anyone tell me should nuts be soaked first before trying these type of recipes, and nut milks etc?

Vivaroo, according to my Vegetarian recipe book, Rice, almond and soy milks are all soaked first.

In my Rainbow Recipes book nut or oat milk is not soaked but soy is and rice milk is made using cooked rice. Her nut milk suggestions use various nuts including cashews, almonds, brazil nuts, hazelnuts, sesame seeds or sunflower seeds.

I haven't made any of the above, ordinary milk in used here.

Thanks Judy, I used to think soaking was only to help the blending process (pre-Tmx days), but I was told yesterday there are enzyme-prohibitors in nuts that are removed by soaking, and soaking begins the germination process which makes them more nutritional.

But... I think a non-soaked nut is better than no nut at all and if the soaking business puts people off eating nutritious raw nuts then it becomes counter-productive.  I like to keep things simple.  Otherwise I go nuts  ;)

I've just made this. I must have done something wrong. It didn't go fluffy. It went like a paste instead. Maybe I over worked it or didn't work it enough. Not sure  ???
