Smoothie Shortcut

So, I keep forgetting to soak my almonds and cashews the night before I want to make a smoothie. I decided to see if the same concept used for quick-soaking dried beans might work for nuts. Eureka! I think the result is acceptable. I take the nuts and cover them with water. I microwave them (making sure there is room for the water to bubble) at 50% power for 5 minutes and then let them sit for another 5. I rinse them and then follow the smoothie recipes as usual.
