I just made this...wow!
Blend 1 cup soaked hazelnuts in 3 1/2 cups of water. Strain with milk bag.
Put milk back into blender and add 3 tablespoons carob, few drops vanilla extract, and a few tablespoons honey.
This is like chocolate milk but frothy like cappuccino. YUM!!!

I'm also thinking a sprinkle of freshly ground nutmeg would set it off nicely. Hazelnuts and nutmeg really go well together.

And then some cinnamon too? Yum.
I forgot to include salt, which I added a dash of to give it more flavor.

I've looked at hazelnuts in the store, but I'm not sure I'm looking at the same thing. These kinda look like they have a shell around them (almost like an acorn) Is this what I use?

They are also called filberts. The ones you described sound like the right ones.

Hazelnut and chocolate (or carob) go great together. One of my fave desserts is hazelnut butter with cacao and honey, to make a raw "nutella." This sounds similar, just in drink form.

yum! i'll have to try this. how long do you soak the hazelnuts?
12-13-2008, 03:53 PM
I soaked mine overnight but that's just b/c it's convenient. I'm not sure ideally...

my nut guy said hazlenuts are not raw if they have the skins off - steam is used for that.
12-14-2008, 06:47 AM
So, do we eat them with the skins ON??? Does soaking get them off??? I've really wanted to try them, but I think seeing all the "skin" had me thinking I was looking at the wrong nut:rolleyes:

Mine have skin...don't worry, it'll blend or go away in the nut bag :)
