Making your own tigernut milk is actually extremely easy to do. You get a creamy, slightly sweet, delicious beverage that can be used in place of coconut milk and is AIP, Paleo, nut-free, and seed-free.
- 1 cup Whole Tigernuts
- 4 cups Water – divided
- pinch Sea Salt
24-48 hours ahead of time, place the tigernuts into a jar or bowl and cover with water (approx 2 cups). Store covered in the fridge for 24-48 hours.
When ready to make the milk, strain the water out, rinse, and then add the tigernuts, the remaining 2 cups of water, and the pinch of sea salt to a blender. Blend on high for 3-4 minutes, or until there are no chunks remaining.
Strain the mixture through a nut milk bag, cheesecloth, or a fine mesh sieve. Squeeze or knead as needed to get all of the liquid out. Store in a glass jar in the fridge for up to a week.
MEAL PREP: This is a good item for meal prep as you can make it and store it in the fridge for a week. Note that you’ll need to soak the tigernuts for 24-48 hours prior to making the milk.
FREEZER: You can freeze the tigernut milk and thaw in the fridge.
