Spike Your Nut Milks!

Boost them with delicious superfoods! These are my favorite flavorings to send your nut milks to a new level in tasty nutrition! Today I’m in love with Eggnog, and my friend Christopher went crazy for Mayan Mocha. They’re all yummy, and so easy! Start with my basic nut milk recipeMy Nut Milk Experiment, Which is Best? After straining the nut milk, choose your flavor below, and stir it into the milk. Or blend to make it even smoother. Hint: These recipes are best combined at room temperature, i.e. not chilled. That’s because if you mix cold and warm ingredients, sometimes the texture separates, and then you have to wait and blend several times to get it smooth again. Yield: 2 cups flavored nut milk. Serves 2. enjoy
