Brazil Nut Milk

Posted on August 29, 2014

Brazil Nut Milk is rocking my world. This dairy-free milk tastes just like the real thing according to my older son (now a teenager). I think this nut milk recipe is the bomb. Brazil Nut Milk is a fabulous dairy alternative. It’s creamy, smooth, and easy to make, with only three ingredients.

I serve Brazil Nut Milk with my Paleo, grain-free Mulberry Granola. It’s also delicious on top of Paleo Porridge, or in Dandelion Coffee. If you miss cookies and milk, […]

It is a cinch to make. Quick and easy, I like to have a quart of cashew milk ready in the fridge at all […]

Almond Milk

This homemade, gluten free Almond Milk is a natural, dairy free milk alternative.

Almond milk is one of my favorite drinks. Rich and creamy, it’s easy to make and super nourishing. While almond milk is a good alternative beverage for those on a dairy-free kick or raw food plan, I think it’s just plain delicious, whatever your dietary predilection! My children drink it by the glassful, while I drink it in my tea and blend it up in smoothies.

I used […]
