Raw Creamy Cacao Nut Mylk

Can you believe it is September already? I’m so not ready for fall and I’m still summer dreaming. I have been craving thick and creamy chocolate nut mylk for the whole day. So here, I decided to do a little experiment since almond mylk is made from blending raw almonds and water together and then removing the pulp; so I decided to blend my homemade almond butter with coconut water…and the results? Thick and creamy, fulfilling chocolate mylk!

  1. […] Ztore invited me to be a “Ztore Taster” for five different kinds of plant-based milks. I’m no vegan nor am I lactose intolerant but I have had my fair share of drinking plant-based milks. I have had the usual almond milk, hemp milk, cashew milk, rice milk, hazelnut milk…. have had it fresh, the long life ones you can get from supermarkets and I’ve made my own too!
