Brazil Nut Milk

On January 17, 2013

A few months back a did a cleanse called Jill’s Nutritional Cleanse, which, bee-tee-dubs, was awesome.  Very filling and satisfying.  If you’re someone who’s been hesitant about cleansing because you’re worried you’ll be starving…this is a good one for you!

As part of the cleanse you are given a nut milk for your evening beverage.  Day 1 was almond milk: it was aiiight.

Then on days 2 and 3 I got the most magical milk I e’er did drink.  Maybe it was the whole not-eating-solid-food-for-2-days thing but I swear every sip I had made Barry White music go through my mind.  I was all [cue the baritone voice] “ooo, yeeeeeah.  Oooooh baby that’s right.  You make me feeeel soooooo gooooood”.  And so on…

Since I’m all about about getting up inside the recipes that make my heart (err, mouth) sing I decided to do a brazil nut milk experiment of my own.

Almond milks, cashew milks and the like are also awesome but I have a special affinity for the brazil nut due to it’s high levels of selenium which is key for proper thyroid function, something I am acutely aware of when it comes to my own health.  So here it goes…

Prepare to bow-chicka-wow-wow as this goes down.
