Here’s one of those recipes that’s so stupid-simple, I almost feel silly sharing it. And yet, it’s so tasty that I can’t keep it to myself. Pecan milk, where have you been all my life?!
Pecans make an incredible nut milk. It’s nutty and tastes like, well, pecans—even more so if you use freshly roasted pecans instead of raw. I prefer mine with a touch of maple syrup and a dash of vanilla. Sip it chilled for an all-natural treat.
Unlike almond milk, which requires straining and leaves gritty almond pulp behind, pecan milk doesn’t require any straining at all. The pecans blend into super-creamy oblivion, which makes this a no-waste nut milk that contains all of the nutrients and fiber you would get from a handful of pecans.
I absolutely love homemade pecan butter and homemade cashew milk, so I’m not sure why I didn’t think to make pecan milk until now. I finally tried making some a few weeks ago, after buying Malk’s pecan milk at Whole Foods (highly recommend, if you don’t want to make your own). So far, I’ve enjoyed pecan milk on its own, with granola, and in my coffee, and loved it every which way.
