I’m always searching for something new and fun to try in the kitchen, and when I first tried Brazil nut cream I was hooked!

So I was intrigued when I started hearing about Brazil nut milk. As a long time vegetarian, I’ve dabbled with almond milk (check out our almond milk berry smoothie, and matcha almond milk smoothie ).

I’ve tried coconut milk (our strawberry matcha smoothie with coconut milk is delish!) and tried every variety of soy milk out there, but Brazil nut milk was new to me.

Well, to be totally honest we’ve been known to eat a few chocolate cupcakes along the way, too.

In the spirit of trying to keep our food as wholesome as possible, I decided to try to make Brazil nut milk at home. It turned out beautifully! It’s rich and sweet, and a really nice treat.

Brazil nuts are definitely going to be in our vegetarian pantry from now on, and are a great vegan substitute.

It’s also a nice bonus that it’s vegan, soy free, and gluten free, raw, and full of great nutrients like Vitamin E, manganese, magnesium, oleic acid and selenium.

This Brazil nut cream recipe is so simple

Take 1 cup of Brazil nuts and soak them in 2 cups of water for a few hours or overnight.

Add 1 tbsp sugar, blend, and strain with a cheesecloth.

And voila! Fresh, healthy Brazil nut milk made at home, with no additives or preservatives.

I’ve never heard of Brazil nuts. Where do you find them…..just in the nut section or do you need to go to a specialty grocery store?
