Quinoa and Coconut milk

Hello Everyone!  Recently my family members found out that they have milk allergy.  While looking for cow’s milk alternatives, I tried making various other milk recipes.  The best recipe that I have created is Quinoa and coconut milk.  This milk has great taste, is a good source of protein and various other nutrients.

Ingredients:

I cup cooked Quinoa

4 cups of distilled or filtered water (use 3 cups if you want thicker consistency)

1 tsp of raw honey

3-4 green cardamom

Making Quinoa and coconut milk:

  1. Put all ingredients in a Vitamix and blend it for 2 minutes at high speed.
  2. Use nut milk bag to strain the mixture preferably in a glass container.
  3. Store the strained milk in a airtight glass bottle in fridge for upto 3 days.

You can use this milk with homemade granola for morning breakfast.  You can also make smoothies and milk shakes.
