There's a few reasons why I love making homemade nut mylk.
I started my homemade nut mylk adventures with this almond milk. A delicious classic that totally got me hooked on homemade vs. store-bought. The only downside of that recipe is it's a little bit time-consuming. The thing is, if you want it extra creamy, you need to peel the almonds. Not a necessity at all, but after doing it the first time, I got so spoiled by the end result that I couldn't go unpeeled afterwards! So I figured I should come up with another option that would be equally as delicious, but a whole lot quicker. Enter macadamia nuts. A decadent, low-maintenance nut, if you will. No peeling required, and combined with a few simple ingredients, it makes the most incredible nut mylk ever! Here's how to make it:
1 cup unsalted macadamia nuts, soaked in filtered water for at least 2 hours
4 cups filtered water
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
Pinch of sea salt
1 pitted date (optional)
Yields about 5 cups of mac nut mylk.
I'm so excited for you to whip up your first batch and become as obsessed as I am! Once you do, you must try adding it in your morning coffee or matcha lattes - it gets SO nice and frothy. You'll never go back! Enjoy!
