Believe it or not, tiger nuts are not nuts at all, they are part of an herb known as yellow nutsedge. They are high in antioxidants, calcium, magnesium, and other valuable nutrients, and are quite common in the eastern hemisphere.[1] If you are vegan, lactose intolerant or looking to make a change in your diet, tiger nuts can be a great replacement for regular cow’s milk. Once you’ve soaked your tiger nuts overnight, it only takes a few minutes to prepare fresh, delicious milk that you can enjoy for up to 1 week.

[Edit]Steps

[Edit]Make simple tiger nut milk

  1. Pour 1 cup (150 g) of tiger nuts into a bowl of water. Fill a large mixing bowl with approximately tap water. Once the bowl is ready, pour in the tiger nuts to soak. Make sure all the tiger nuts are soaked or else they may not soften evenly.[2]

    • If you want to make a lot of milk at once, you can always double the recipe.
    • If your tigernuts are already peeled, you will only need to soak them in about 1.5 of water.[3]
  2. Cover and soak the nuts for 1 day in the refrigerator. Take a sheet of plastic wrap and cover the top of the container so that the water does not evaporate. At this point, place the covered container in the refrigerator. Keep in mind when you started soaking the tiger nuts so you can take them out again in 24 hours.[4]
    • Soaking the nuts makes them softer and easier to mix with the milk.
  3. Strain the soaked walnuts in a colander. Place a large strainer in your sink, then pour in the tiger nuts. Drain any excess water to ensure they are completely clean.[5]
  4. Add the tiger nuts in a blender. Make sure that your blender is really powerful, so that it can mix the ingredients very easily. Ideally, the milk should have a smooth and uniform consistency.

    • You can also use a food processor for this, as long as your food processor can process liquids.
  5. Pour at least water. You can add more water, depending on how thin you would like your milk to be. If you prefer a creamier consistency, start with just .[6]
  6. Mix the ingredients for at least 3 minutes. If possible, choose the “blend” or “smooth” setting on your blender. Let the blender run for at least 3 minutes, or until your tiger nut milk appears to be a smooth consistency.[7]
  7. Use a muslin cloth to filter the milk. Place a muslin cloth over a glass, pitcher, or other container. Pour the blended tiger nuts through the cloth, which filters the pure milk. Continue straining until you have collected all the milk you can.
    • You can also use a sheet of burlap, like the material for a nut bag, to strain the milk.
  8. Refrigerate leftovers up to 1 week. Pour any remaining tiger nut milk into a sturdy container, such as a jar or jug. Label the date you made the tiger nut milk, so you can remember when it goes bad. Enjoy your dairy free milk for the week ahead![8]

[Edit]Add additional ingredients

  1. Include cinnamon and vanilla to make a rich horchata. While preparing the traditional tiger nut milk, add the vanilla extract, along with ½ teaspoon (2.6 g) of ground cinnamon. As an extra touch, pour in the maple syrup. You can refrigerate this drink for up to 3 days or enjoy it right away![9]

    • If you’re making a lot of this recipe, consider transferring the drink to a glass jar or pitcher.
  2. Create an aromatic drink with cardamom pods and cinnamon. While softening the tiger nuts, dip them with a cinnamon stick in a covered container. When you go to prepare the milk, add 3 cardamom pods, as well as ¼ cup (60 g) of brown sugar or sugar. Blend all the ingredients, including the cinnamon stick, then refrigerate the mixture for 1 hour. Once chilled, strain through a bag of nut milk and enjoy your drink over ice.[10]
    • You can find brown sugar and cardamom pods online or at certain markets.
    • A bag of nut milk helps you strain any homemade nut milk you make at home. You can buy it online or use a cheesecloth, sieve, or other fine strainer instead.
  3. Mix together some dates, sweet potatoes, and ginger for a flavorful drink. Wash and peel a small sweet potato, then cut into small cubes. As you prepare to make your tiger nut milk, blend the sweet potato chunks in the blender along with the soft walnuts. To add an extra kick, peel and chop some ginger root and add it to the other ingredients. As a final touch, add a few dates to the mix. Mix everything together, then strain the milk.[11]

    • You may need to add at least water to thin the milk.
    • If your drink isn’t sweet enough, consider adding a tablespoon of sugar.
    • This type of drink tastes better cold.
