DIY Pistachio Milk Posted on 31 Jul 18:31 , 0 comments

This delicious recipe was adapted from Vegan Life Magazine which is chock-full of delicious plant-based recipes! Highly suggest grabbing a copy now. Okay, onto the recipe...

The pistachio milk only took about 5-10 minutes to make (once the pistachios were soaked overnight). It's creamy and a delicious natural alternative to store bought plant-based milks. The benefits? Pistachios are packed with vitamin K, potassium, vitamin B 6, protein and fiber. Plus there are no binders, no fillers, no gums, no thickeners, and no scientific experiments!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup raw, unsalted pistachios, soaked in water overnight
  • 3 cups water
  • 1 1/2 tsps ground cinnamon
  • 3 Medjool dates, pits removed 

How to make

  1. Drain and rinse pistachios.
  2. Add pistachios, water and cinnamon to blender. Mix on high for 1-2 minutes until pistachios are ground.
  3. Add dates and blend well. 
  4. Pour the milk into a fine-mesh strainer on top of a large blow and slowly pour the mixture through the strainer. 
  5. Serve the milk immediately or store in the refrigerator for 3-4 days. 

Enjoy by itself, in your morning oatmeal or add fruit and greens to make a smoothie!
