Do you want to enjoy your morning coffee totally guilt free and know that it's actually improving your health?
Do you like frothy, creamy lattes and wish you could drink them every day? Have you recently gone dairy free and are struggling to find a healthy, tasty milk alternative.
I've been experimenting with some home made nut milks to enhance the coffee experience. Whether you are dairy free or dairy-full, this milk is a great switch which provides a creamy, frothy latte with a high dose of anti-inflammatory omega 3s, some hormonal balancing, antioxidant vitamin E, protein, fibre and some beneficial B vitamins.
In fact this nut milk is so nutritious that you can actually now have this latte in place of your breakfast if you prefer, and will often find you get a great energy boost even when you use decaffeinated coffee.
What's more, it's yummy, super easy to make and all natural. No nasty fillers, carageenan, flavors or colors in this nut milk which you make in less than 1 minute.
Take 10 hazelnuts (soak over night in a cup of water for best results)
1tsp flaxseed oil
1 cup of water
Add all to your blender and blend for 30 seconds. This will produce a frothy, creamy milk.
Brew your coffee and then strain the hazelnut-flax milk into your coffee by pouring through a sieve or tea strainer. You'll need to pay it down and move the fibre to the side now and then.
Hot tip: eat the fibre in the sieve, it'll taste great and is really good for you. Plus this means less waste for less cleaning.
Enjoy this delicious, creamy, frothy coffee daily. If you're interested in cutting your caffeine try it decaf, there are so many nutrients in the milk that it's quite energizing without the caffeine.
If you're busy in the mornings, this nutritious mix can become coffee and breakfast in one. Pair with a ripe banana for an extra energy boost.
Until next time, stay deliciously healthy.
