Homemade Chocolate Hazelnut Milk
Recipe: <br> <br> Ingredients: <br> <br> 1 to 1.5 cup/s Raw Hazelnuts<br> 3 cups of Water<br> 2 tablespoons cocoa powder<br> <br> *If you want to make a sweetened version, I recommend using a date or two. <br> <br> *optional for taste: Pinch of Himalayan Pink Salt and/or ground cinnamon<br> <br> SPECIAL TOOLS NEEDED:<br> Blender, Cheesecloth or Nut Milk Bag<br> <br> 1. Place hazelnuts in a bowl, fill with water until submerged. Cover with plastic wrap or an airtight cover and leave to soak overnight at room temperature.<br> <br> *if you want the sweetened version, place a few dates in here too, and keep it with the hazelnuts throughout the recipe.<br> <br> 2. Drain and lightly rinse hazelnuts. Place in a blender with the water and cocoa powder and pulverize until relatively smooth (~30 seconds or higher depending on the power of your blender). <br> <br> 3. In a small bowl or measuring cup, drape a double-layered folded cheesecloth into the bowl/cup. If you're using a nutbag, place open nutbag in a bowl. <br> <br> 4. Pour blended hazelnut mixture into the cheesecloth-covered bowl/cup or nutbag. <br> <br> *I prefer using a cheesecloth because of the better consistency I tend to get (creamier), and I use a measuring cup- therefore, I repeat steps 4&5 two-three times because I can't fit the entire mixture in there at once.<br> <br> 5. If using cheesecloth- pour only a manageable portion in at a time, and gently wring the cheesecloth to get every bit of that milk out. If using a nutbag, you can let it hang over the bowl by tying it somewhere above, or you can also gently wring it- be careful with wringing the nutbag though, as it tends to get hazelnut chunks in the milk if you squeeze too forcefully.<br> <br> 6. Pour hazelnut milk into an airtight container (add salt/spice here if you want to) and store for up to 3-4 days. I find mason jars to be best for this- make sure to shake it up before serving as contents do separate when still for awhile. <br> <br><a href="http://www.livingminnaly.com/" target="_blank" style="color: #889c45;font-weight: bold; font-size:15px;">More Recipes from Living Minnaly</a>
