And because I have been overly obsessed with Nut Mylks lately, here is a recipe for one of my favorite ones.
Pistachio Mylk 💚
1 cup raw unsalted organic pistachios
4 cups filtered or purified water
pinch of himalayan sea salt
1 tablespoon local raw honey or other sweetener
1 vanilla bean or 1 teaspoon vanilla extract (optional)
Soak shelled pistachios in water for 6 hours. Rinse and drain.
Place soaked pistachios in a blender with 4 cups of water. and blend until smooth.*
Add in vanilla and maple syrup and blend until combined.
Pour contents of blender through a nut milk bag into a jug. **
Store in refrigerator for several days. You will need to give it a good shake before using as water may separate.
Use in place of milk in cereal or baked goods, warm up for a comforting drink or add cocoa powder for a pistachio hot chocolate.
Notes *Use a high powered blender. This will not work with a food processor. **A nut-milk bag is necessary for this recipe. I recommend this kit.
Thanks @thehealthymaven for the amazing recipe!
