And making your own means you have a plethora of varieties and flavors to choose from instead of drinking the same thing every day. Use almonds to change things up, add more coconut milk for a richer taste, drop in a few strawberries for strawberry flavored milk, vanilla flavoring can be replaced with almond flavoring or maple flavoring, throw a banana in for a sweet banana milk. Whatever suits your fancy.
- Place Brazil nuts, sweetener, and 1 cup water in blender and blend on high until very, very smooth.
- Add remaining ingredients and blend until well mixed.
- Chill. Stir before using.
Enjoy over Baked Apple Blueberry Oatmeal, Cranberry Apple Crisp, Autumn Honey Pear Crisp, Cranberry Orange Oatmeal, Apple Walnut Granola or Maple Nut Granola, or use it in my recipes for Healthier Caramel Apple Dip, Blueberry Smoothie, or Strawberry Lime Smoothie (instead of the almond milk). Or with these yummy Coconut Oatmeal Cookies.
Coconut Brazil Nut Milk and Weight Loss
This rich, creamy milk must be fattening? Right? Not at all!
In fact, it may even help with weight loss. Not only does this milk provide the nutritious benefit of nuts – which have been shown to help with weight loss – but it also offers some slimming fiber and is devoid of the cholesterol found in dairy milk.
