How To Make Tiger Nuts Milk by Nobody: 2:40pm On Aug 29, 2014
Thank God it's Friday, I hope you guys are ready to make the
best out of this weekend? Because I have my weekend
already planed and booked for lots of parties, my chicken like
legs will never stay one place *lolzz*.

This afternoon I went to Oshodi market to get something.
Please my people guess what I saw! Guess nah....since you
can't guess, am gonna tell you. I saw Tiger nuts! yehhhhh!, I
know you will be wondering that is so special about that nut
that can make you start coughing minutes after eating it. But
I tell you, the nutrient can transform you from aje pako to aje
butter. Let me give you small tip about this nut.

1. Tigernut oil is used in the cosmetic industry. As it is
antidioxide (because of its high content in vitamin E) it helps
slow down the ageing of the body cells. It favours the
elasticity of the skin and reduces skin wrinkles. *this nut can
bring to reality a song by Alphaville titled forever young*

2. It supplies the body with enough quantity of Vitamin E,
very essential for fertility in both men and women.
Tiger nuts are abundant in Nigeria and I used to eat lots of
them in my younger years. Then we call it Aya in hausa. And
the test is hmmmm....yummy!!!

So I decided to buy some and then show you how to make
Tiger Nuts Milk for you and your family this week end.

Ingredients for making Tiger Nuts Milk

1. 600g soaked Tiger Nuts (475g dry Tiger Nuts)
2. 1.5 litres cold water
3. Other ingredients you can add to it
4. Coconut
5. Sugar
6. Ginger
7. Cinnamon
8. Kitchen blender
9. Chiffon cloth to separate the shalf

Directions for making Tiger Nut Milk

1. Soak the very dry nuts in a generous quantity of cold water
for 2 days. Keep it in the fridge for the duration of the soaking
so that the nuts do not ferment. Most tiger nuts sold in
Nigeria are fresh and well hydrated so you'll only need to
soak those ones for a few hours or overnight.

2. After the soaking, wash the nuts very well and sort out the
bad ones.

3. Put them in your kitchen blender and pour just enough
water to help the blades move. We need to make this milk as
concentrated and tasty as possible, you can add more water
later if you wish.

4. At this time you can add other ingredients: coconut, sugar,
ginger and other flavours of your choice and blend them
together. I prefer anything I eat/drink as natural as possible
so I do not add any other ingredient to this drink. The natural
taste of Tiger Nut Milk is so great, you do not want to alter it
at all.

5. After blending, use a chiffon cloth or ladies stocking
(pantyhose) to separate the chaff from the drink. Of course,
the pantyhose should be brand new, thoroughly washed with
dish washing liquid.

6. Press the stocking to make sure you squeeze out all the
milk from the chaff.

7. Put the dry chaff back in the blender, add more water and
blend again. Then strain with the chiffon cloth.

8. Repeat the process till all the milk has been extracted. I
found that the milk I got the third time was too watery. So 2
times should be enough and keep an eye on the quantity of
water. As a guide, I got 1.5 litres of tiger nut milk from 600g
of soaked tiger nuts. Yours may vary.

9. Pour the extracted milk into bottles and store in the fridge
for up to 3 days. It should last longer in the freezer. In my
home, this milk usually disappears within 2 days of making it,
so I can't tell you how long it can stay in the freezer without
losing its taste! lol.

Hmmmmm.....in fact I love this milk pass my grandma
breast milk. By the way There are 2 varieties of tiger nuts:
brown and black. Both are
readily available in Nigeria but I think the brown ones are
more common outside Nigeria.

don't worry, just blend the flavor and mix it with the the already blended Tiger nuts, add more water and blend it together again before separating the chaff from the milk

Sorry for the late reply.
