{Recipe} How to Make Brazil Nut Milk

Recipe & Tips by Éva Raposa

A few weeks ago, <<we shared the Easiest Milkshake Ever, featuring Brazil nuts>>. It was a definite hit, and we even ended up selling out of our complete supply of Brazil nuts that week!

By request, we're offering a special encore week. That includes <<both the special offer on Brazil nuts for members of our free e-club>> AND a new recipe we hope you'll enjoy!

Brazil Nut Milk

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 cup Brazil Nuts*
  • 3-4 cups filtered water
  • 1 Tbsp vanilla extract
  • pinch salt
  • sweetener, to taste**

*Swap out ANY NUT or SEED MIX in the place of Brazil nuts for a different flavor of nut milk. Most nuts are best soaked in water (then drained) for 8 hours, to ensure optimal digestion.
**Sweetener options are whatever you'd like, or you can even skip the sweetener. You may like to use 2-3 drops of stevia, honey, coconut nectar, agave nectar, maple syrup, or even sugar if you prefer.

 

INSTRUCTIONS + TIPS

  • INSTRUCTIONS: Use a blender to blend ingredients together, then use a fine mesh strainer (or nut milk bag, if you have one!) to separate the pulp from the liquid. [Note: You'll find a photo of a fine mesh strainer below this section.]
  • TIP: Enjoy within 2-3 days for optimal freshness.
  • TIP: How to use the pulp that remains?! I like to make it like a dip, with a touch of salt, apple cider vinegar, the pulp, and some fresh herbs with whatever spices are on hand. I then scoop it onto Romaine leaves, with some chopped up veggies and maybe a touch of avocado. YUMMMMM! Just enjoyed this yesterday when I was double checking measurements for you. So good!
  This is what I'm referencing for a wire mesh strainer. You can find them at LeRoux or in any kitchen supply store, and of course they come in handy for many things beyond making a delicious Brazil Nut Milk!! :-)
