Looking to branch out from just making a homemade almond milk? We found the answer! One of our favorite Vegetarian chefs, Amy Chaplin has created a nut milk base using hemp seed and macadamia nuts, yummy. To this base she adds several different flavors. We have included the recipe for the base milk and the Vanilla Spice flavoring. But check out the rest of the flavors here.
Flavored Nut milks
Hemp macadamia nut milk base
Don’t worry if you forget to soak the macadamia nuts, they blend pretty well in an upright blender.
Makes about 4 cups.
½ cup macadamia nuts, soaked in a cup of water for 2 to 4 hours
½ cup hemp seeds
4 cups filtered water
2 to 3 teaspoons vanilla
Tiny pinch sea salt
Drain and rinse macadamia nuts. Place in an upright blender along with remaining ingredients. Blend on high speed until smooth and foaming.
Use as is or strain milk through a nut milk bag, several layers of cheesecloth or a thin kitchen towel. Pour into a jar and keep in the fridge for up to 5 days.
This milk makes the perfect light dessert. The medjool dates add a sweet caramel flavor while thickening the texture slightly and vanilla beans, cardamom and nutmeg add an irresistible exotic flavor.
1 cup strained nut milk
½ a vanilla bean, seeds scraped
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Pinch ground cardamom
Pinch freshly ground nutmeg
2 pitted Medjool dates
Blend all ingredients until completely smooth and serve chilled.
