Macadamia Nut Milk

Gluten free, Dairy free, Egg free


Ingredients:

1 cup unsalted macadamia nuts

4 cups filtered water plus more for soaking

1 tsp vanilla extract optional

1 TBSP maple syrup or a few drops of liquid stevia extract optional


Instructions:

Place the macadamia nuts in a large bowl.

Cover them completely with water.

Soak for at least two hours. They are considered a quick soaking nut, so 2-4 hours is plenty.

Discard the water and rinse well several times.

Blend the macadamia nuts, 4 cups of water, and vanilla and maple syrup if using for 2-3 minutes until completely smooth.

Pour the mixture through a fine mesh strainer or a cheesecloth. This is optional but ensures a smoother finished macadamia milk. If you skip this step, just make sure to shake well before using.

Store in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
