Chocolate Hazelnut Milk
Chocolate hazelnut milk is a vegan nut milk made with toasted hazelnuts, cacao powder, and just a couple of dates to sweeten the deal ~ YUM!
nut bag or cheesecloth for straining
whole raw hazelnuts
dates, or more to taste
cacao powder (aka unsweetened cocoa powder.)
Preheat the oven to 350F
on a baking sheet and toast in the oven for 12-15 minutes. Give the pan a shake once or twice during cooking. Be careful not to let them burn.
Put the nuts in a clean kitchen towel and rub together vigorously to remove the skins.
Note: Don't worry if some of the skins remain, that's perfectly fine.
Put the skinned hazelnuts in a jar or bowl and cover with clean cold water. Let soak for at least 2 hours, or, preferably, overnight.
Drain the nuts and put them into a blender. Add 2 cups filtered water, the
Blend on high until smooth and creamy.
Strain the milk through a nut bag, or several layers of cheesecloth, squeezing firmly to get all the liquid through. Discard the remaining nut solids or use in a smoothie.
Your chocolate hazelnut milk will keep in the refrigerator for at least a week.
