Tree Nut Milk Recipe

Mixed nuts
To get all that delicious flavour out, these nuts must be roasted first and given oomph!

You’ll want to preheat the oven to around 175 c fan on. Line a tray with parchment paper, then add the tree nuts to the top. Make sure it’s evenly spread out so that it roasts evenly. Place the tray into the oven for approximately 6 to 8 minutes. Or until you can smell the toasted aromas released.

Soaking these nuts helps to add liquid to them and makes it easier for the blender to blend them into that delicious milk! Yum!

Once we remove the nuts from the oven, we will soak them in double the water to the nuts ratio. Place it in the fridge for around 4 hours. Once soaked, we will put the liquid and the nuts into the blender to blend until it has been processed.

This is to be blended! Soon it will become our tree nut milk!

I blended the stuff for around 8 minutes; it depends on how powerful your blender is. If it’s not powerful as mine, you can use the same amount of time. You can always check after blending to ensure all of it has turned to milk.

There we go! There is our delicious nut milk!

Coconut Cream from Coconut Milk

Coconut cream can be used as a substitute for double cream in vegan recipes or simply to make the dish taste better! Simply in this recipe, we will be using coconut milk. You can add sugar to it to make it a more dessert-based cream, though we will be keeping it basic.

You can use the cream in savoury dishes and desserts alike. Around a can of coconut milk will yield slightly more than a cup. We used this cream to make a delicious peach cobbler which you can find here. For savoury dishes, you can use it for a bean quiche which is quite frankly amazing!

Step-by-step image gallery for hot chocolate

In this recipe we used chocolate from Lidl, it was super cheap! Around 49 pence to buy! It’s a raspberry filled chocolate and tastes delicious so I was wondering if I could use it for hot cocoa! We basically cut the chocolate into pieces and then put it into the pot filled with 1 litre of milk. Using around 200 grams of chocolate.

We keep it at medium until it’s warm/hot enough before it burns or bubbles up then set it to medium low. You don’t want it to bubble but you want it hot enough to be up to your temperature standard.

Though for using chocolate- make sure to use non-chunky chocolate since the pieces might be a problem for some for drinking.

Different types of chocolate you could use and their flavour!

  • Raspberry filled chocolate- depending on the strength of the raspberry- it’s quite a light tone of flavour. You can taste the raspberry notes but it more compliments the chocolate.
