Peanut milk is a variety of nut milk that can be used as a non-dairy alternative to milk.

Ingredients[edit | edit source]

Equipment[edit | edit source]

  • Blender
  • Colander
  • Fine filter of some sort (e.g. a reusable coffee filter)
  • Funnel
  • 2 bottles

Procedure[edit | edit source]

  1. Rinse peanuts in colander. If salted peanuts are used, rinse well with hot water.
  2. Place peanuts in blender with half of the water, and blend on high speed for about 1–2 minutes.
  3. Add the rest of the water and blend on high speed for maybe 1 minute, until smooth.
  4. Pour into a bottle, add the salt, shake, and put in the fridge for a few hours.
  5. When most of the peanut flour has settled at the bottom of the bottle, pour carefully through a filter into another bottle.
  6. When the filter starts clogging with peanut flour, squeeze out the milk, and rinse the filter. You can also use a spoon or something similar in the filter to help most of the milk get through before squeezing.

Notes, tips, and variations[edit | edit source]

  • Additional sweetener or other flavouring, such as vanilla, may be added to taste.
  • The sea salt takes away the watery feeling. It should not taste salty. You can experiment as to what amount is right for you.
  • The same goes for the thickness of the milk. Add more or less water to taste.
  • Peanuts are extremely nutritious.
