Toasted macadamia nut milk, with a heavenly nutty flavor and creamy consistency that makes it the perfect substitute for dairy milk in breakfast, coffee, and dessert. Only 2 ingredients (plus water) are needed for this amazing vegan drink.
Preheat a large skillet on the stove over medium heat. Add the macadamia nuts in a single layer. (If they're already toasted, we're just re-toasting them for a minute or two to add a bit more flavor).
Cook over medium heat, stirring very frequently, until the macadamia nuts are just starting to turn golden brown and smell fragrant. For pre-roasted nuts, this will only take a minute. For raw nuts, this will take around 3 to 5 minutes.
Immediately transfer the toasted macadamia nuts to the blender and add the water. Let the nuts and water soak together in the blender for a few minutes before blending.
Blend together the macadamia nuts and water until the mixture appears very smooth. (If desired, also add in sweetener to taste.) This could take up to 3-4 minutes depending on your blender.
Strain the mixture through a nut milk bag, squeezing out as much excess liquid as you can. If a nut milk bag is unavailable, use a fine mesh sieve, layered with cheesecloth if available.
Allow the toasted macadamia nut milk to cool to room temperature before storing in the refrigerator. It will keep for a week.
