Delphine’s Hazelnut , Almond , Hemp (or any other kind of nut or seed) Milk.
2 c. raw organic hazelnuts (soak them overnight … 2nights are ok; not necessary) rinse , drain.
2 tbs. local raw honey (optional) sub with a date or two if honey is not your jam.
2 cardamon seeds (break open the pod and take out 2 or 3 seeds), cinnamon , or nutmeg are also great!
1tsp vanilla extract.
I start with 2 cups of nuts or seeds of choice , and will make 1 batch at a time
Place 1 cup of soaked nuts or seeds
3 cups of water into a blender
blend at high speed for 30 seconds – 1 minute (depending on how high powered your blender is … vitamix: ideal)
strain through a milk bag squeezing out every last precious drop of milk
put strained milk back into blender
(discard nut fiber into compost or make a face mask, power bars or dehydrated crackers with it)
add back into the blender with strained milk: approx 1 TBS. honey (or sweetener of your choice. an unsweetened milk is also quite lovely)
½ tsp vanilla extract
1-3 seeds from cardamom pod (or cinnamon or nutmeg).
Blend for up to 2 minutes
Sip & enjoy!!
