Pine Nut Milk Recipe (Plant-Based Milk)

| 1 June 2015

We love starting the new year with fresh clean food & simple recipes. This one – Pine Nut (Pine Kernel) Milk – is totally divine. And keeps us seriously questioning ourselves:

“Why on earth people still consume soooo much low quality processed dairy milk when THIS is soooo easy to make and soooo yummy?”

Go figure.

In the meantime – make this for your next breakfast. Pine nuts are packed with energy and rich in protein: you will be mega-fuelled.

Ingredients:

(serves 2)

  • 1 cup of organic pine nuts
  • pinch of salt
  • 2 TBLS raw honey / 4 soft dates
  • 1 TBLS mesquite powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence
  • 750ml spring water
  • Optional: 1 TBLS fresh flower pollen

Method:

Soak pine nuts overnight (this makes them extra creamy and very easy to blend even with the most basic blender). Drain the nuts. In the blender add the pine nuts with 330ml of water (or just enough to cover the blades). Blend till you get a smooth, silky cream. Add dates or any other sweetener, mesquite, vanilla, and blend again. Finally, add the rest of the water and whizz again.

Serve with a generous sprinkle of flower pollen.

Pine kernels (pine nuts) are praised throughout the world as a nutritious healthy snack and an essential ingredient in multiple of Oriental and Mediterranean dishes. In fact, pine nuts are so nutritious they have been the staple food of many Native American tribes and indigenous people of Siberia. Rich in protein and healthy fats, they were eaten as far back as 10,000 years ago.

Enjoy!

With Much Celebration & Appreciation,
