Chocolate Hazelnut Milk
Chocolate Hazelnut Milk – healthy, delicious and so easy to make, this nut-based milk is a tasty alternative to regular chocolate milk. Because everyone deserves a treat. It is dairy free and vegan!
– 2 cups hazelnuts
without skin and toasted
unsweetened cocoa powder
Place cooled hazelnuts in a jar. Pour in enough cool water to submerge the nuts. Cover and let sit overnight.
Drain and rinse the hazelnuts. Place in a blender. Add filtered water, pitted dates, and cacao powder. Blend until the nuts have been ground.
Filter the mixture using a nut bag, or cheesecloth set over a mesh strainer. Discard the hazelnut pulp, or save it to use later.
Pour the cacao hazelnut milk into an airtight container and keep chilled in the fridge for up to three days.
Shake well before servings, as the mixture will separate as it sits.
