I love homemade plant milk, it’s cheaper, cleaner and you can avoid going through labels and just make it at home. My favourites are Almonds, Cashew, Brazil, Pumpkin, Sunflower seed or Coconut meat. Adding in dates / brown rice syrup/maple sugar/ vanilla / bee pollen / cinnamon / nutmeg / cacao powder / sea salt, etc….. you will instantly avoid any bad sugars or unnecessary additives.
The second recipe uses the leftovers nuts in this case to make a simple breakfast loaf, full of fibre, protein, good fats and no waste!
Remember you can do this with veggies too! Beetroots or carrots post juicing make great muffins or patties !!
Soak Time: 2 hours (minimum- see chart below)
Prep Time: 5 Mins
Ready in: 10 mins
- Nuts / coconut meat
- Flavouring (optional)
- Soak the nuts or seeds in water
- If you are adding in dates then soak them at the same time
- Drain and discard the soaking water and refresh with filtered water
- Add in your chosen flavours and blend together
- Strain well through a cheesecloth or nut bag, making sure all the liquid has been removed (it’s an arm workout!!)
- Store in a tight closing glass container
- Dry leftovers from the milk
- 1 Psyllium husk egg
- Pink salt
- Coconut flour
- Nut milk
- Heat oven to 170°C
- Mix the psyllium husks with water until thick
- Add the desired amount of ingredients and combine till thick
- Place into a coconut oil greased tin and bake for around 20 minutes
- Let it cool and add any toppings
This loaf is not intended to be sweet or savoury, it’s a high fibre high protein loaf, add on avocado lettuce tomatoes or lather on healthy spreads.
If you like it sweet add in a banana and cacao nibs to the mix or for savoury, sprinkle in some rosemary or thyme, it’s just amazing with an avocado on top!
Try them both out! One ingredient for two recipes!
