After blending I let the milk sit in the blender for 5 -10 minutes. This gives the milk time to settle and the foam to gather on the top. After the 5 minutes I scoop off all the foam and discard into the sink. After removing the foam my original 7 cups remain. I dislike straining foam through the nut milk bag. See here for foam scooping process.
*If using a “regular” blender (not high-speed), start with 5 cups water and blend on high for up to 2 minutes. Add more water in future batches if you like the consistency and taste with 5 cups.
*To sweeten hazelnut milk, you can add any individual or combination of the following: 3 soaked dates, 2 tablespoons maple syrup, honey, coconut nectar, coconut sugar, brow rice syrup, yacon syrup, or drops of stevia to taste. A common method is to add strained nut milk back into blender then add sweetener and blend.
