Homemade Hazelnut Milk

Homemade Hazelnut Milk | GoodGirlGoneGreen.comI am a big fan of nut and seed milks. They are so easy to make at home, nutritious and cheaper, of course. I personally think they taste better than the store-bought variety. They are just so versatile and can be used in place of plain cow’s milk.

I was rummaging through my cupboard and to my delight found a small jar of hazelnuts that I completely forgot about. At that moment, I thought hazelnut milk would be a great addition to my smoothie I was about to create, and I was right! The milk tastes great alone or adding it to a smoothie gives it a sight hazelnut taste.

What is your favorite nut or seed milk?[print_this]

Basic Hazelnut Milk

Yields: 3-4 cups

Ingredients

  • 1 cup of hazelnuts, soaked for 4-6 hours (optional)
  • 3 cups of water
  • Sweetener: 1/4 cup of maple syrup, agave, honey or 4 dates or more depending on your sweet tooth, soaked
  • 1Tbsp of vanilla flavor
  • 2 Tbsp of coconut butter

Method

  1. Place the ingredients in a high powered blender.
  2. Blend until the all the ingredients are incorporated, and the nut milk is creamy.

Notes and tips

  • The hazelnut milk can be strained, but not required. It will be much more nutritious if left unstrained.
  • If you do not have coconut butter (make your own with this simple recipe) or substitute with coconut oil.
  • The milk keeps for 2-3 days in an airtight container in the fridge.
  • Gently shake the nut milk before using.
  • Add cacao and make chocolate milk. [/print_this]
