This entry is for my dad. Because he likes milk as much as I do, and he’s not supposed to drink it anymore either. He mostly drinks vanilla soy milk. Which is okay. But I’ve discovered something much better. I tried to tell him about it, but I think generally when I start talking about recipes, he gets bored. Now I have some lovely pictures…
Here is me making some milk out of brazil nuts. There is a lovely movie explaining how to do it on Darryl Hannah’s SHOW. I can’t decide if i like almond milk or brazil nut milk better.
This is a batch I made from brazil nuts. It’s pretty easy to make. You just throw all the ingredient into a blender, blend it, and then squeeze the milk through a bag to strain out all the nut chunks. This batch is made from brazil nuts, honey, vanilla, coconut oil, soy lecithin (which is an emulsifier), and a pinch of salt. That’s it. As you can see it’s much thicker than soy milk. I like soy milk okay in my tea and mixed with other things, but it’s not as good on it’s own. It’s kinda grainy and not milk-like. This is a little thicker. And it goes great with some granola and blueberries for breakfast!
