Coconut Brazil Nut Milk

Non-dairy milk probably isn’t something you usually think of making yourself.  And yet homemade nut milk is so delicious and so EASY!  I mean 5 minutes max.  Why not make it yourself?

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.

How to Use This Non-Dairy Milk

Enjoy this Coconut Brazil Nut milk over Baked Apple Blueberry Oatmeal, Cranberry Apple Crisp, Tropical Granola or Maple Nut Granola or with another of my delicious breakfast recipes.

Or you can use it in my recipes for smoothies, like Cherry Milkshake, Blueberry Smoothie, or Strawberry Lime Smoothie.

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.

Enjoy!

  1. I don’t have a high-power blender. Do Brazil nuts blend well in a regular blender?

    This looks good, and I’m going to try some. Thanks for the recipe.

  2. Those cookies look really nice, do you have the recipe here on the website? I can’t find it, nor in your book, In Good Health.

    Thanks!

  3. Hello Zoraida,

    I will be posting the recipe for the Chewy Crispy Coconut Oatmeal cookies on the website very soon … probably within the next month or so. : )
