Holiday Nut Mylk Recipe – Cold Pressed Peppermint Patty
Our healthy Peppermint Patty Nut Mylk will satisfy cravings for chocolate and peppermint this holiday season! Recipe tested in the Goodnature Kitchen and formulated by Ari Sexner, our talented chef and juice business consultant. Recipe yields about 2 gallons / 23 bottles (12 oz servings).
|95 oz||soaked raw almonds (skin on)|
|24 oz||pitted and soaked dates|
|9 tbl||organic cacao powder|
|3 tbl||organic peppermint extract|
|3 tbl||pure vanilla|
|1.5 tbl||pink himalayan salt|
- Put almonds in a container and fill with water, cover. Soak in refrigerator for 48 hours. For the last hour of soaking, add the dates to the water so they re-hydrate.
- Drain water, rinse and drain again.
- Process almonds, dates and cacao powder, blending with the 280 oz of water.
- Add the slurry into press bag, then press.
- Whisk vanilla, peppermint, and salt into mylk.
- For the vanilla, you can use liquid extract, paste or vanilla bean. If using the bean, process 3 beans with the almonds and dates. We used a pure vanilla bean paste which is made from both vanilla extract and vanilla beans.
- We recommend using a wide weave bag when pressing – it makes a creamier nut mylk.
