Chocolate Mint Nut Milk

Chocolate Mint Nut Milk 2

I came up with this recipe with a dairy free creamer to go in my coffee in mind. It is creamy and tastes great for making peppermint mocha’s, but it’s also delicious all by itself.

Nut milks are simple to make. You just need a nut milk bag or a fine mesh strainer lined with cheesecloth. Nut milk bags are inexpensive, and I prefer them over a strainer lined with cheesecloth, but you can go that route too. You can get a three pack for just under $9. on Amazon.

Chocolate Mint Nut Milk

Ingredients:

1 Cup of Raw Pecans

4 Cups of Water for Soaking (This will be discarded later)

3 Cups of Cold Water

1/4 Cup of Cocoa Powder

2 Tablespoons of Raw Honey

1 Tablespoon of Vanilla Extract

1/4 Teaspoon of Peppermint Extract

a pinch of Sea Salt

Directions:

Place your pecans in a bowl and cover them with 4 cups of water. Let the nuts soak overnight for 8 to 12 hours. The longer they soak, the creamier your milk will be. This plumps up and softens the nuts for a creamy non-gritty milk.

After the nuts have soaked, dump them into a strainer and rinse them with fresh water.

Add the rinsed nuts and 3 cups of fresh cold water, cocoa powder, honey, vanilla, peppermint extract and sea salt to a high speed blender, and blend for three minutes.

Pour the nut milk into your nut milk bag over a large bowl. Gently squeeze the bag to strain out the milk into the bowl. Refrigerate in a covered container for up to 5 days.
