It’s the first video of 2016! I’m so so excited to be kicking them off with an awesome collab with one of my good friends and fellow blogger/vlogger, Nikky from HealthNut Nutrition!

We decided to come together to create two awesome videos highlighting homemade juice and milk/mylk recipes. After the indulgence of the holidays, we could all use a little (non-alcoholic) hydration amIright?

Nikky has 3 delicious juice recipes (that are also stunning!) and I’m teaching you how to make homemade almond milk, in 3 different varieties. I think you’re gonna be surprised at how easy it is to make.

 

One of my highlights of 2015 was meeting and getting to know Nikky. It’s kind of a funny story how we met…

In true form, Nikky was actually a reader of Lee’s and when Lee was visiting last February, Nikky commented on one of her Instagram pictures about her living in Toronto (sounds oddly familiar to how I met Lee…;)).

So on Lee’s last day here we met up with Nikky at Portland Variety and totally hit it off. Lee and I are not an easy bunch (we’re a tad loud and aggressive), but Nikky totally held her own. We also LOVED how unbelievably talented she is, but she had no idea of it!

From classic vanilla, to spicy chai and decadent chocolate, this step-by-step tutorial will teach you how.Over the year I have watched Nikky grow her channel at an unbelievable (and well deserved!) pace, and take HealthNut to the next level as a badass vlogging business.

In the process, Nikky has taught ME so much. She inspired me to start my YouTube channel, taught me about the technicalities of filming and the ins and outs of the YouTube world.

Not to mention how wonderfully humble and balanced she is. She’s someone who I can drink green juice with all day and then enjoy a couple of glasses of wine with at night! We’re on the same page when it comes to health and wellness.

I’ve met a lot of bloggers, but there are a couple who I’ve developed strong bonds with outside the world of blogging. Nikky, Lee, Lexi, Cassie, Sahar just to name a few. Our conversations go beyond what we posted on the interwebs that day. We chat family, relationships, body image, beauty products, the Kardashians and pretty much everything in between.

So let’s cheers our homemade almond milk to the friendships we built in 2015 and the new ones we’ll grow in 2016. I can’t think of anything more worth cheersing than that!

    I’m so excited for 2016 and what it has in store. Meeting you and Lee along with some other amazing bloggers/youtubers last year was one of the best things and Im so grateful for the friendships I’ve made. So much of the progress I made in 2015 with my blog and food photography is because of you ladies and I cant thank you enough. Watching your YouTube career grow is amazing. You’re like an online triple threat business lady (is that’s even a thing) LOL Love you so much and I wish nothing but the best for you this year. Cheers to a healthy and successful year filled with lots of almond milk and green juices haha xo

    Loveeee this! I have been wanting to make my own nut milk forever but never got around to it. I’ll have to give it a try 😉 And I love hearing about bloggers meeting in real life! I’ve had the chance to meet a few bloggers who live here in Seattle (including Taylor from Food Faith Fitness – loved her!) and it’s been great every time.

    Did I ever tell you about the time I made almond milk but forgot to strain it? Delicious but probably like bazillion calories per serving and so filling.

    Here’s to 2016! And our continued friendship! Love ya lady! xo

    This is awesome! I hate how a lot of commercial almond milks have a bunch of additives and sugars, so this is perfect! I also love how your recipe takes like zero time. Always a plus. 😉
