This Macadamia Nut Milk is very simple to make and only calls for 4 ingredients or less, if you want it unsweetened.
There’s so much almond milk in the world and I thought let’s give macadamia nuts a chance! Plus they are so deliciously addictive.
Did you know? Macadamia nuts are higher in fat than some other nuts and they are lower in omega 6 (excess of omega 6 leads to inflammation in the body.) Macadamia nuts are also rich in Magnesium and manganese, essential nutrients for healthy skin. They are also the ideal nut if you’re looking weight loss journey because they contain Palmitoleic acid. This naturally occurring acid has the ability to increase fat metabolism, which in turn reduces fat storage. SO much goodness in such a little thing, right?
What I love about this Macadamia Milk is that it is a green, ecological and recyclable recipe. Nothing goes to waste. You can make Chocolate Macadamia Bars with the leftover pulp. They are delicious too!
Okay, so now that we got a little background on macadamia nuts, let’s roll up our sleeves and let’s make this creamy and healthy Macadamia Milk.

- 2 cups water

- Cover a strainer with a sheet of cheese cloth or a thin cloth and pour the macadamia milk in.
- Grab the cloth and squeeze. Do not discard the pulp.
