Vegan, Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Low Sugar
Makes 3 cups
1 cup raw unroasted Macadamias
3 cups filtered water
1 tablespoon vanilla
1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
2 tablespoons honey, maple syrup or agave, optional for sweetness
1 tablespoon coconut butter, optional for a thicker, creamier milk
- Soak the macadamias in a bowl of water for 2 hours. Once the nuts are hydrated and plump, dump the water and rinse the nuts.
- Place the macadamias, vanilla, cocoa powder, water, coconut butter and sweetener in your blender container. Blend until smooth.
- Macadamia milk is pretty smooth unstrained, but if you like a smoother milk with no nut sediment in it, strain it through a nut milk bag, fine mesh strainer or cheesecloth before consuming.
Blending Tip A french press, typically used for coffee, is a great alternative to a nut milk bag or fine mesh strainer when making your non-dairy milks.
