brazil nut milk {chocolate brazil nut milk}

never, even when i was a little girl and my sister could guzzle a gallon a week, was i a sit-down-with-a-glass-of-milk girl.  i could take it in my cereal, and i enjoyed it in hot drinks, but sipping a glass of milk wasn’t a craving i experienced.  now, once i tried raw milk, that was another story.  and now that i’ve tasted this recipe, drinking a cold glass of brazil nut milk while reading a book and listening to instrumental folk music, that is a craving i can say i now know.

this recipe comes from choosing raw; i simply doubled her recipe, although i found recipes aplenty that were similar; some that use as little as half the amount of water, which i wasn’t sure would be as creamy.

since i can’t drink a glass while typing (we’ve already been through ours today, seriously), let’s just look at the pretty pictures.  k?  (and how my children dislike when i use “k?” as a word.  not.  okay.)

i’ve been reviewing a great book called Juice: Recipes for Juicing, Cleansing, and Living Well, and their almond milk recipe reminds me that soaking nuts helps make them more easily digestible; next i plan to try their recipe, which calls for a 4/1 water to nuts ratio.
