This has been on my phone for ages , and I have been procrastinating on posting it because it wasn’t as perfect as I wanted it to be .
Any ways , I hope it’s presentable enough and will help anyone who hasn’t figured out how to make basic tigernut milk . Basic because some recipes call for different steps and ingredients, all long story . So you will need
-Tiger nut -Sugar
-Evaporated milk (optional )
Note : in its season you can find fresh tiger nut which gives a fresher taste and when it’s out of its season you can purchase dried nuts and soak it . (In this post I used 3cups of dried tiger nut).
You can soak it overnight or for at least 12 hours, depending on how dry it is .
Soak your dates differently after removing its seeds . For every 1cup of tiger nut I use 5dates .
You do not soak your coconut , just cut them into blend-able sizes .
Blend everything (tigernut, coconut,and dates) or in Nigeria here there are commercial grinding machines on almost every street corner 😁.
Using your muslin cloth filter .( I miss my muslin cloth from med school 🥲).
Add in sugar , and evaporated milk .
This milk do not do so well in very hot weather. So keep chill at all times, so it doesn’t go bad .
