Macadamia Milk

I'm liking my new Vitamix more and more by the day.  On this occasion, I tried my hand at macadamia milk and it turned out great. How hard is it? Not hard at all.

Macadamia Milk 
  • 1 cup raw macadamia nuts soaked for at least 4 hours 
  • 3 cups filtered water
Put the macadamia nuts and the water in a Vitamix. I have the Vitamix 750, which is very powerful and will pulverize this mixture into milk in just 1-2 minutes. Just turn the Vitamix to 1 and continue to turn it up to 10 slowly over the course of 45 seconds. Blend for a total of 2 minutes. That's it! No cheesecloth needed because this blender pulverizes everything!

Now you can use your macadamia nut milk in soups, smoothies, or enjoy it by itself. Most people prefer to sweeten it in some way with maple syrup, agave nectar, or vanilla extract if they are enjoying it in cereal or drinking it plain. Enjoy!


  1. I've made several other kinds of nut milks but never macadamia. They're such delicious nuts; I'm sure this tastes wonderful!

  2. It was great in a smoothie, but I'd definitely add a sweetener if you want to consume it on its own. Let me know if you try it!
