Homemade nut milk – what a concept! In my opinion, nut milk is nature’s gift to those who are dairy-free but still want to enjoy milk in their diets. The fact that you can make this Brazil nut milk beverage with only a handful of nuts and water, plus some optional extras like Medjool dates, vanilla, and cinnamon is the reason anyone can add this nut milk to their recipe box of delicious things to make.
There is something for everyone (unless of course, you have nut allergies – sorry) because the list of nuts made into milk is extensive. Almonds – Walnuts – Hazelnuts – Brazil Nuts – Cashews – Pistachios – Macadamia – Pumpkin Seeds – Sunflower Seeds – Sesame seeds – Hemp Seeds. However, I consider Brazil nut milk to be one of my “Besties” when it comes to nut milk.
The flavor profile is extra creamy with just a touch of natural sweetness. It brings a whole new excitement to the usual oatmeal and berries in the morning. Some of my other favorite uses for this dreamy beverage is to splash it over berries with a little honey for a healthy dessert option, or add it to morning smoothies for an instant protein boost. Oh, but the fun doesn’t stop there my friend.
Blend it with a bit of organic cocoa powder, pour it into popsicle molds and voila – delicious popsicles without all of the extra added sugars, coloring and additives that create havoc on our gut. Nut milk has endless possibilities that are limited to only your imagination.
