Brazil Nut Goji Milk (raw, vegan, gluten-free)

July 20, 2018

"The idea of having an uncooked vegan diet is not a recent one. Humans are, in fact, the only creatures on Earth who cook their food," say David Cote and Mathieu Gallant, authors of RawEssence. This is the perfect beverage to keep you going this summer as it's gluten-free, raw, vegan, and packed full of nutrients!

Ingredients Makes 4 portions

2 cups Brazil nuts 500 mL
1⁄3 cup goji berries 75 mL
4 cups water 1 L
2 tbsp agave nectar 30 mL
Pinch sea salt Pinch
1⁄2 tsp ground cinnamon 2 mL
1⁄8 tsp cayenne pepper (optional) 0.5 mL


  • Soaking: 12 hours (optional)
  • Preparation: 5 minutes
  • Equipment: blender; milk filter
  1. Soaking (optional): In a bowl, soak Brazil nuts in water to cover for 12 hours, then rinse thoroughly. Discard soaking water. Soak goji berries for 1 hour, then drain. Save their soaking water as liquid for another smoothie.
  2. In blender, combine all ingredients and blend for a few minutes to obtain a colorful, creamy liquid. If necessary, start by blending Brazil nuts and goji berries in half the water called for.
  3. Filter milk through a nylon or cotton milk filter. Save pulp for future recipes; it will keep in the refrigerator for 5 to 7 days.
Keeps 3 to 4 days in the refrigerator in an airtight container.
