View Full Version : Raw Chocolate "Milk"
01-21-2007, 09:15 PM
I made raw chocolate milk which tasted pretty good. I put cocoa and raw honey, vanilla, sesame seeds and almonds in water and blended. The one thing is its too watery. I was hoping it would at least be as thick as skim milk.
What can I add to it to thicken it? :)

This is the second time I've seen you mention your nut milks being too watery - how much water are you using...what is the nut-to-water ratio?
When I make my nutmilk, I use one cup of nuts to about 5 cups water and to ME, it comes out rich (I use almonds and cashews). But if I add only 3 cups of water to one cup nuts, it comes out REALLY rich...like "whole milk".
The less water you add, the creamier and thicker your drink will be...the more water, the thinner and more watery it will be.
So, try it with less water.

Well I never pre soak them :eek: Could this be why? I use 4 tsp of almonds for every 3/4 cups of water.

Soaking doesn't really matter as far as the consistency is concerned...but I think that you are just using too much water for a tablespoon (4 tsp. = 1 TBS.) of almonds. So, again, try using less water....if you are only making one serving each time you blend up milk, start out with maybe 3 times the amount of water as you use nuts - for example, if you use 4 tsp. of nuts, add 12 tsp. water. But that wouldn't be very much milk...sooooo, use a little more nuts - maybe 1/8-1/4 c. nuts and again, try triple the amount of water and adjust the amount from there.

I have almonds soaking right now for over night and I will try the recipe over with less water this time. I love this chocolate milk. Its not much different from the real thing. :D

hemp seeds added to the blender would thicken it.
