Cinnamon Sugar Walnut Milk

I love making my own nut and seed milk, I have found it cuts down on the amount of waste we are producing in a very big way, and by doing so I can avoid some of the added ingredients I am not fond of in pre-packaged milk (carrageenan, I am looking at you!) I have tried a variety of different nuts and seeds, including a recent foray into homemade oat milk. I have been curious about walnuts, it's not a variety of nuts I would think of immediately for milk, but the neutral flavour lends itself nicely to a latte. I have added some cinnamon and sugar to this recipe, it adds a hint of sweetness and flavour but you are welcome to add a bit more of each if you want to bump the flavour and sweetness up a bit. This recipe is delicious paired with my Cinnamon…

Pistachio Rose Latte

This latte recipe was inspired by a lovely night out with a friend in Toronto. We visited a restaurant that featured Pistachio Rose Mylk on the menu, and I have been itching to re-create it ever since. Pistachios are expensive, and while they do add a lovely flavour to the milk you could also use plain almond milk. I've added a few variations below, using rooibos tea and dandy blend for a variation on the base recipe. That being said, it is lovely on its own. Enjoy! Pistachio Rose Latte Ingredients ½ cup almonds ½ cup pistachios 4 dates, pitted and soaked in 1 cup boiling water 3 cups filtered water ½ tsp ground cardamom ½ tsp rosewater Pinch Himalayan salt Directions Soak almonds and pistachios overnight or pour boiling water over nuts and let soak for at least 30 minutes. While nuts are soaking, pour 1 cup hot water…

Pecan Maple Chocolate Milk

This Pecan Maple Chocolate Milk recipe is a staple in our house, we make it in advance and bring it to Christmas parades and/or whip it up to enjoy at home. You can swap out the pecans for any other nut or seed of your choosing, but I find this pecan/maple/chocolate combination is especially good. If nuts are not an option, you can make oat milk using the same milk recipe below, however, the milk will require less processing time. I've learned from experience that oat milk gets very gelatinous if you process the oats for too long! I have used maple syrup in this recipe, but it would also be delicious with coconut sugar. The pinch of sea salt I have included may sound a bit strange, but a touch of salt rounds out the flavour and helps bring out a bit of natural sweetness from the raw cacao…

Tropical Paradise Smoothie

Spring has definitely sprung here on the island, with sunny warm days in abundance. As a result I find myself reaching for smoothies and salads with increasing frequency. I am a big fan of smoothies first thing in the morning, they allow for a wonderful combination of healthy fats and protein, along with superfoods that help maximize nutritional input.
