High Protein Quinoa Milk Recipe

With the march of coconut and almonds into milk cartons, it’s not easy choosing a faux moo juice. While researchers at the Universitat Politècnica de València are experimenting with hazelnuts, walnuts and chestnuts, we’re topping up our microwaved lattes with celeb chef Teresa Cutter’s  high-protein quinoa milk.*

Ingredients*

Makes 1 litre (eight 125 ml servings)

  • 250 g cooked quinoa
  • 1 litre (4 cups water to blend)
  • 2 fresh, pitted dates or stevia
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract/paste

Method

  • Combine the quinoa and half of the water into a good high speed blender.
  • Blend at medium to high speed until creamy. This should take about 30 seconds to a minute.
  • Add the rest of the water and blend again.
  • Strain through a fine sieve and store the milk in the fridge for up to four days.
