Vanilla Brazil Nut Milk

For those who are allergic to dairy or just trying to cut back on it for health reasons, nut milk can be an essential part of your shopping list.  Although there are many delicious varieties at the store, I like to make my own to make sure there are no refined sugars, additives or thickening agents.  It is quick and easy to make your own at home if you have a blender!  The recipe I am sharing with you today if for brazil nut milk.  Almond milk and cashew milk may be the most common but brazil nuts make great milk too!  Brazil nuts are high in selenium, iron, calcium, magnesium, and potassium, all important for your body to function well.  This milk has only 5 ingredients, and I use dates to sweeten it, which not only add sweetness but also fiber as well (if you don’t strain it, as I usually don’t).  This is good on cereal, or to drink, or in your morning coffee!
