Hazelnut Milk

Posted on Posted in Smoothies and Drinks

What is good about making your own plant-based milk? It is free from colors and additives and it is a perfect ingredient for oatmeal and smoothies, the base for every good breakfast.

In addition, hazelnuts are a good source of vitamin E which promotes healthy hair and skin. Vitamin E is also very good for the muscles of the body, especially the heart muscles.

Hazelnuts are a good source of the B complex vitamins that are essential for a good working nervous system. They help to reduce tiredness, improve memory and in principle they make you more relaxed.

…wait, that was my keyword! Excuse me, I am going to eat a handful of hazelnuts now and drink all the nut milk.

Prep Time
10 min
Ingredients
  1. 1 cup raw hazelnuts, soaked in water
  2. 3 cups water
optional
  1. 1 teaspoon vanilla extract or 1 vanilla bean
  2. 1 pitted date
Instructions
  1. Cover hazelnuts in water and soak for at least 8 hours or overnight.
  2. After soaking drain the water. Add 1 cup of hazelnuts and 3 cups of water in the blender. Blend until everything gets smooth.
  3. Now we need to separate the hazelnut milk from hazelnut pulp. Place a cheesecloth or a nut milk bag over a bowl and pour the mixture in. Pull up all the sides and squeeze until you get as much liquid as possible.
  4. Store it in any air tight jar. It will last in your fridge for 2-3 days.
Notes
  1. If you want to add flavour to your milk you might add pitted dates, vanilla bean or vanilla extract or cinnamon. I use the milk as a base for my smoothies and oatmeal, so I like to keep it natural.
  2. Dependent on how thick you want your hazelnut milk to be you can use more or less water but in general you want a 1:3 ratio hazelnuts to water.
