We’ve all had almond mylk (or milk or whatever you want to call it) at this point. We’ve probably also had cashew, rice, coconut, and hemp mylk too. But our new favorite twist is to use brazil nuts to make Brazil Nut Mylk. They have really great flavor, and are super healthy. What brazil nuts are known for the most, is their high selenium content. What is selenium? We asked ourselves the same thing. It’s a compound that’s incredibly helpful and effective in diminishing inflammation and mood regulation. It’s recommended that everyone eat 1 brazil nut each day to get the amazing benefits. Who knew?!
We like to flavor our Brazil Nut Mylk with cinnamon, maple syrup, and Himalayan pink salt. It takes about 10 minutes to make and will make your breakfast feel like you’re slipping into a cashmere sweater, it’s so delicious. We like it with homemade superfood granola and paired with our easy to make, healthy cookies.
Here’s how to make it for yourself:
IngredientsMakes 4 Cups
1 cup Raw Brazil Nuts
4 cups Filtered Water
1 tablespoon Maple Syrup
1 teaspoon Cinnamon
½ teaspoon Himalayan Pink Salt
Soak brazil nuts in water for 2 + hours. Drain and put in blender. Add filtered water and blend on high for 1-2 minutes. Have a large bowl on hand and pour the blended nut liquid through your nut bag. The mylk will pour through the bag. Squeeze all the milky goodness out. Note: sometimes you have to do this in batches. Compost the nut meal or dry it out and make into a flour. Add remaining ingredients and stir.
