I’m always experimenting to find more healthy milk alternatives. This pecan milk did not disappoint. Pecans are rich healthy fats, magnesium which helps to lower the blood pressure, phosphorus which helps to cleanse waste from the body and promotes healthy bones, and teeth. Pecans also contain fiber which is great for keeping the colon healthy and helps to promote regular bowel movements. They also work wonders for the health of your skin and contain many rich nutrients including Vitamin E, Zinc, Vitamin A, Iron, Calcium, Potassium, and more. If you are lactose intolerant, or just looking to stop drinking dairy, this is a great vegan alternative.
*Raw Pecan Milk Recipe*
1 Cup Activated Raw Pecans (To activate soak overnight to release enzyme exhibitors)
3 Medjool Dates (Remove the pit and allow to soak for 2 minute before use)
2 Tbs of Organic Grade B Maple Syrup or Raw Agave Nectar
1/2 Tbs Vanilla Flavor
Pinch of Himalayan Pink SeaSalt
4 + 1/2 Cups of Alkaline Water
Optional: Pinch of cinnamon or nutmeg for a spice
What You Will Need:
High Speed Blender
Optional: Nut strainer bag ( Its not as much pulp left with pecans as with almonds but this helps to have pulp free-milk)
1. Soak pecans overnight
2. Place pecans + water inside blender + blend until smooth
3. Pour milk through strainer bag into separate container to catch unwanted pulp
4. Rinse your blender + pour your milk that you strained back into blender
5. Add the rest of your ingredients (dates, sweetener, vanilla flavoring,+ spice (optional)
6. Blend on high until smooth + pour milk into airtight container + consume within 2-3 days
(Note: I allow mine to chill a few hours before consuming) Enjoy!
