How to make Tiger Nut 'Milk'

Updated: Sep 29


I wonder if tiger nuts are going to be the new kids on the superfood block, if they aren’t already!


They are in fact not a nut, but an African vegetable root (tuber). They have high amounts of prebiotic starch which feeds our beneficial gut bacteria. According to some sources, they contain as much iron as red meat in the same serving size. A win for vegetarians and vegans!

To make the milk, you need a fairly powerful blender. This makes about 1 litre of 'milk'.



Ingredients:

1 cup (around 100g) peeled tiger nuts (for a smoother milk soak for 4 to 6 hours in filtered water)

4 cups (about 1 litre) of filtered water

2 to 3 dates, stone removed (or sweetener of your choice such as 1 tsp of maple syrup or honey)

¼ teaspoon of vanilla extract or vanilla powder

Pinch of salt


Place all the ingredients into the blender until smooth. You can either bottle as is, or strain through a nut milk bag, or fine mesh sieve, if you prefer it smooth. I strained mine and put the pulp into my dehydrator to see if it makes nice biscuits 😊.
