Ingredients

  • 1 cup Baru Baron's baru seeds
  • 2 cups water, plus more for soaking
  • Sweeteners like maple syrup (optional)
    Equipment
  • Bowls
  • Strainer
  • Measuring cup
  • Blender or food processor
  • Fine-mesh nut bag or cheese cloth

Instructions

  1. Soak the baru seeds in a bowl covered with an inch of water. Do it overnight or up to 2 days in the fridge. The more you soak, the creamier the milk.
  2. Drain and rinse the baru under cool running water.
  3. Combine the baru and water in the blender/food processor. If you like thinner milk, you can add more water.
  4. Blend until baru is broken to a fine meal and water is white and opaque.
  5. Line a fine-mesh strainer with the nut milk bag or cheese cloth, and pour the mixture into the strainer.
  6. Gather the nut bag or cheese cloth around the baru mixture and twist close. Press all the baru milk from the baru meal.
  7. Sweeten to taste! Lasts in a sealed container for up to 2 days.
