DIY NUT MILKS, NUT BUTTERS, AND MORE
By Melissa King
This cookbook has over 50 recipes featuring nut milks and nut butters that are gluten-free and vegan (except for the occasional use of honey; however, maple syrup is given as an alternative). You can save money by making your own nut milks and nut butters at home.
Nut milks in this book include Chocolate Cashew Milk, Strawberry Brazil Nut Milk, Vanilla Hazelnut Milk, spiced Pistachio Milk, and others. Use these milks to prepare items such as Spiced Chai Milk.
Enjoy making Chocolate Hazelnut Spread, Maple Cinnamon Macadamia Spread, Cinnamon Pecan Butter, and other nut butters. Recipes are also given using nut pulp including Grain-Free Peanut Butter Banana Pancakes and Maple Vanilla Almond Granola.
For breakfast, consider baking Banana Walnut Baked Oatmeal Muffins or Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Donuts. You can also prepare a nut-based smoothie such as Mixed Berry and Kale Smoothie.
You'll also find baked and un-baked treats. Try Strawberry Tarts with Cashew Cream, White Chocolate Coconut Fudge, Almond Butter Mousse, or Flourless Almond Butter Blondies. Frozen desserts include Chocolate Hazelnut Ice Cream or Pistachio Ice Cream.
This book includes colorful photos. Also, please keep in mind that these nut milks are not fortified.
