Pumpkin Pecan Milk (raw option)

Pumpkin PEcan MilkIn honor of the fall season the pumpkin craze that comes with it, along came this Pumpkin Pecan Milk! Creamy and dreamy, sweet, and such a rich flavor. To me, this tastes like a pumpkin spice latte, but BETTER! If you would like to make this fully raw, you can use fresh peeled pumpkin.

Infused nut milks have been the craze in my home lately. I used to only create plain nut milks,  then “add flavorings” in the form of a smoothie, but I was inspired by Celena from Raw nut Milk to create herb and spice infused nut milks and flours (*see note below).

1Pumpkin PEcan MilkFor this recipe, I used my handy dandy nut milk bag that I purchased at my local health food store, a similar one can be found here. If you do not have one, or don’t wish to spend money on one, try using a fine mesh strainer. It may not come out as smooth and pulp-free as would a milk with a nut milk bag, but it will surely get the job done. I have also seen nut milks being made in slow juicers! I have made almond milk before in my juicer, but I have not yet tried it with pecans, I’m sure it will work! I learned how to do this from John Kohler.

*To create nut flours, simply take the pulp and dry it in a dehydrator or oven (at the lowest temperature with the door cracked open). You can then use the flour for baked goods, granola, etc. Get creative!

Notes

I used a nut milk bag that I purchased at my local health food store, a similar one can be found here. If you do not have one, try using a fine mesh strainer. It may not come out as smooth and pulp-free as would a milk with a nut milk bag, but it will surely get the job done.
