Brazil Nut Milk

Brazil Nut Milk is rocking my world. This dairy-free milk tastes just like the real thing according to my older son. 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 3 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, try my Primal Chocolate Chip Cookies and a glass of this incredible dairy-free milk!

Brazil nuts not only taste great, they are super healthy. Loaded with vitamins, antioxidants, and minerals, Brazil nuts are a fantastic source of selenium which protects cells from damage and can lower the risk of certain cancers. Brazil nuts also lower LDL cholesterol, the “bad” cholesterol.

This milk is similar to a whole milk (as opposed to skim or low-fat). If you’d like to make it a little less creamy, simply increase the water in the recipe from 4 cups to 5. If you’re looking to use the leftover pulp from this recipe, try my pulp crackers.

    • Hi No, thanks for your comment. Selenium is an important mineral that we all need to survive, and, it should not be taken in excess as this causes selenium toxicity.

  1. If your milk separates in the fridge I find that if I add a teaspoon of sunflower lecithin in the blender when blending, that the milk doesn’t separate.

  2. Is it possible to use roasted Brazil Nut, or it has to be raw nut? I could only find roasted nut at my grocery store.

    • Christiano, thanks for your comment. I haven’t tried that so not sure, if you experiment I hope you’ll let me know how it turns out :-)

  3. Is it normal that they produce so much pulp? I had only made cashew milk before, and those produced almost no pulp at all
