Brazil Nut Milk

AuthorDesireeCategory, DifficultyBeginner

This is a super easy recipe on how to make Brazil nut milk. Brazil nut milk is a great substitution for dairy milk, especially when making dishes which cause for a creaminess that almond milk just doesn't give.

The Day/Night Before
 ½ cup raw organic brazil nuts (roughly 25 nuts)
 hot filtered water to cover the nuts
The Next Day
 4 cups filtered water
Tools You Need
 nut bag or cheese cloth
 at least a 2 cup liquid measuring cup
  32 to 34 ounce glass beverage container

1

Place Brazil nuts in a heat proof bowl. Heat filtered water till boiling and pour over the brazil nuts. Place some plastic wrap over the bowl and let the nuts soak overnight.

2

The next day you will notice some pieces of the brazil nut skin floating in the water, which is good. Drain the nuts from the water.

3

Now to remove the outer layer skin of the brazil nuts.

You can skip this step if you want. However I feel taking off most of the brazil nut skin produces a better tasting nut milk and it really doesn't take that long to scrap off.

Here's a tip: I press lightly with a potato peeler to remove the skin being careful not to remove any nut. And sometimes I just use my finger nail.

4

Put the nuts in a blender with 4 cups of filtered water.

5

Blend for a couple of minutes till you get a frothy mixture.

Make sure you have a nut bag, liquid measuring cup and a glass beverage container ready.

7

Strain the nut milk using a nut bag or cheese cloth.

To do this, place a nut bag in a liquid measuring cup. Then pour a cup of nut milk at a time. Squeeze the bag to remove all the milk from the nut pulp. Pour the liquid in the glass beverage container. Empty the nut pulp in a separate container. Repeat this step till all the nut milk is strained.

*I find the straining process easier to do it in a liquid measuring cup because there's a spout to prevent any messes when pouring the nut milk into a container.

8

The nut pulp can be saved and used to make homemade granola, cookies or a tart crust. Look out for a couple of recipes I'll be sharing soon using nut pulp.

9

And there you have it....Brazil nut milk!

The nut milk will keep in the refrigerator for about 4 to 5 days. It's important to shake the milk before using due to some separation occurring during storage.
