Fresh tiger nut milk is so creamy and delicious – it is simple to make, is also super healthy and super good for you! It is a perfect plant-based milk alternative in cereals, coffee and tea – but it tastes great straight up, the traditional way to drink it in Spain is with just a pinch of cinnamon. Traditionally they also add sugar, but there is no need as it is naturally sweet – but if you like try adding one date to 800 mls of tiger nut milk and blend. Tiger nut milk is an easy and delicious way to increase your plant-based foods and nutrition.
Did you know that tiger nut milk can help lower cholesterol, and help balance blood sugar?
