On a warm summer afternoon last week, I was craving a nice cool glass of milk. Next thing I know, I was in my kitchen wondering what I would find there to satisfy my taste buds.
I found pine nuts, hemp seeds, dates and vanilla and made my most decadently delicious milk so far! It was like drinking the sweets I used to indulge in during my childhood vacations in Tunisia (as you can see below, posing with my sisters).
What you need
~ a handful of pine nuts (about 2 tablespoons)
~ a handful of hemp seeds (about 2 tablespoons)
~ 2 medjool dates
~ 1/4 of a vanilla bean
~ 16oz of Filtered Water
Few easy steps
~ Pit the dates
~ Scrape the vanilla bean and save the brown seeds
~ Throw everything in a blender with water
~ Blend for 30 seconds or more!
~ You can filter before drinking (using a sieve of a nut-bag) if you want a perfect milk.
~ Keep in the fridge and drink up within 3 to 5 days
~ Extra recipe: Pour some milk in a cup, adding 2 tablespoons of chia seeds, mix and keep in the fridge for 20 minutes.... Tadaaaaa, here is a Chia Pudding for dessert!
