Brazil Nut Milk Recipe


Brazil Nut Milk How to Video 512x1024 How to make Brazil Nut MilkLast week I promised you I would show you how to make Brazil nut milk. When we talked about how to have glowing skin and we discovered one of the only plant sources of selenium were brazil nuts.

As we learned last week, Selenium prevents and protects your skin from sun damage. Brazil nuts are the most highly concentrated source of selenium. In fact, scientists have shown that a daily Brazil nut is a better source of the mineral than taking a supplement.

Brazil nuts come from the Amazon forest and provide us with much needed protein, fats and many other essential nutrients. Brazil nuts will lower your LDL’s – those are the bad cholesterol. They are a great source of vitamin E. They are also a good source of the B complex vitamins including thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, B6 and folates. Brazil nuts also contain trace minerals including copper, magnesium, manganese, potassium, calcium, iron, phosphorus and zinc.

Today I am going to show you just how easy it is to make brazil nut milk in your Hurom Juicer or any other slow press upright juicer.

Raw Brazil Nut Milk Recipe:

1 cup of brazil nuts (soaked for 2-8 hours)
2 cups of water
2 dates (soaked for about 10 minutes to soften)
1/2 tsp of vanilla
(I doubled this recipe for the above video)

Directions – combine all the above ingredients in a bowl and ladle through your juicer. Then strain the nut milk to remove any excess pulp.

@rashmisharma12 Hi Rashmi - this nut milk is amazing - so rich and it goes great in tea. I honestly haven't had milk in years so I couldn't tell you what it tastes like compared to cow's milk. For tea it is amazing because it doesn't curdle. I like to experiment with all different kinds of nut milks. I really like almond milk too. Just try it, I think you will like it - and then we can have tea with brazil nut milk during our sanskrit lesson together next week :) Love, Melissa

@rashmisharma12 Isn't it delicious to make your own nutmilk? My friend @Viola Vazio makes her own nut milk in a juicer like the Hurom too and she has made almond milk peeling the nuts and not peeling the nuts - she says it tastes good both ways, it just looks really pretty and white when you peel your nuts. I'm proud of you! :) We're both learning new things :) Namaste, Melissa

@rashmisharma12 It is pretty exciting - I have done a little bit of mantra before, but I haven't been consistent and I haven't had direction with pronunciation before. Looking forward to hearing about your almond milk - remember to soak your nuts overnight. :)

@rashmisharma12 Almond milk is yummy, but it won't work in your tea :( It went really well and we actually filmed a day early yesterday! I can't wait for you to see it tomorrow! I hope I make you proud. Tim said my singing voice was lovely for the chanting! xo Melissa
