Today is the first day of the Great Fast. Many people have decided to go on this “purification” and will seek substitutes for some of their favorite products. For example, coffee lovers who consume it with milk won’t be able to use animal milk.

I’ll give you an idea how to replace it and I guarantee for a perfect flavor and aroma. Prepare healthy vegetable milk from hazelnuts. They are the most suitable nuts for coffee additive, as the consistence of this type of milk and its aroma match perfectly with coffee. Hazelnut milk has the scent of chocolate and is a perfect source of vitamins B1, B2 and B6 which are essential for blood formation and mental health, and a source of vitamin E – an anti-oxidant good for hair and skin.

Hazelnuts are rich in folic acid, which is important for fetal growth, helps in red blood cells formation and oxygen transport in the organism. The preparation of hazelnut milk is rather easy and fast. Soak 1-2 handfuls raw hazelnuts the previous evening. Wash the nuts in the morning, put them in a blender with ? glass of water. Filter the obtained liquid and the milk is ready.

Don’t be afraid to try new things in the kitchen 🙂
