This naturally sweet, dairy-free milk is prepared using tiger nuts and blended with a generous helping of fresh strawberries. Tiger nuts are not from the nut family but from the tuber family (artichokes and sweet potatoes). They have a similar fat ratio to that of olives and contain many heart healthy fats. Strawberries are known for being a low GI fruit and high in vitamin C, antioxidants and phytonutrients. This recipe makes a deliciously refreshing summer drink, perfect for using freshly picked strawberries.

Ingredients

  • 1 ½ cups cups of tiger nuts

  • 3 cups of filtered water (for blending)

  • 1 cup of fresh strawberries, pack the cup

  • Optional: maple syrup

Directions

  1. You will need to prepare the tiger nuts in advance by allowing them to soak and soften. Add the tiger nuts to a clean, sealable jar and cover with filtered water, so there is about 2 inches of water at the top. Seal and refrigerate for 24 hours.

  2. Drain the tiger nuts by tipping into a colander and rinse well.

  3. Transfer the soaked tiger nuts to a blender along with the fresh 3 cups of filtered water. Blend until the liquid is milky and cloudy and the tiger nuts have turned to a pulp.

  4. Carefully strain the tiger nut milk through a nut milk bag, cheesecloth or clean tea towel into a clean vessel. Discard the grainy pulp and clean down the blender.

  5. Return the milk to the blender along with the fresh strawberries and blend until smooth. Taste and optionally add maple syrup if required to sweeten further. Refrigerate to chill if required or serve over ice.
