Tiger nut milk is a creamy beverage which features an ancient and nutrient-dense tuber called tigernuts.
You can enjoy sipping this milk chilled, or use it in your favorite smoothie recipe to highlight the naturally sweet, toasty flavor of the tigernuts.
To make your own tiger nut milk, here’s what you’ll need:
1 cup tiger nuts.
4 cups of clean water.
½ tsp. vanilla extract, optional
¼ tsp. cinnamon
1 Tbs. maple syrup, raw honey or other preferred sweetener, optional
Pinch of unrefined salt.
A nut milk bag.
A high powered blender.
Place the tigernuts and the water in a bowl, cover with a cloth, and place at room temperature for 24 – 48 hours. The tigernuts will soften and become more crunchy.
Pour the soaking water (which will lend a bit more flavor to the finished beverage) and the soaked tigernuts in a blender. Blend on high speed for about a minute, until the mixture looks creamy with small bits of tigernut pulp.Add the vanilla, cinnamon, salt and sweetener if using.
Strain the milk through the nutmilk bag into a container. Squeeze as much liquid as possible from the tigernut pulp.
Don’t toss the nutrient-rich tigernut pulp! It it full of the beneficial resistant starch.Chill the tigernut milk before serving. It lasts a few days in the fridge.
