Coffee Shop – Worthy Hazelnut Milk + “Oh She Glows Everyday”

September 14, 2016

Coffee Shop - Worthy Hazelnut Milk + "Oh She Glows Everyday" by Faring Well

Our acclimation back into the busy world has been gentle these past few days. Scott and I have kept the free spirits we embraced on our camping trip alive, easing back into our responsibilities and tasks. As wonderful as they are, we become a different (better) version of ourselves without the lists and obligations. Losing cell service for several days on our camping adventure meant no one could know what we were up to. We lived in the moment, had more face to face time, and thought very little about anything more than an hour in advance. This is the space where I thrive. I hope to share more of our adventure with you soon, it was full of so many breath taking experiences and special moments. We drove nearly two thousand miles in-all, without ever leaving our state. Oh California, you are something special.

But today I get to share with you a recipe I have been holding onto the past few weeks. One I’ve been enjoying daily and oozing with excitement to tell you all about. It’s a mixed hazelnut and almond milk, lightly sweetened and perfectly spiced. It truly takes your cup of coffee or tea to a level of flavor that is positively addictive. Pour it over your oats for a real treat, or blend it into your favorite shake too. It is so simple and gratifying to make your own, especially when you make a special batch such as this one that rivals any you will find at a cafe. I use a woven hemp nut milk bag, and have found this to yield the creamiest milks so far. However, if you cannot get ahold of a bag, a few layers of cheesecloth should do the trick.

This was the first (of many) recipes that jumped off the page at me when first exploring the new Oh She Glows Everyday cookbook by the sweet Angela Lindon. This book is truly refreshing, with recipes that encapsulate the essence of it’s name so well – everyday. Stunningly photographed by the talented Ashley McLaughlin, each recipe beams at you – begging to be made. Today. Because you more than likely have the majority of the ingredients on hand, or easily will soon. Angela’s blog was one of the first I stumbled upon when I first turned to a plant based diet four and half years ago. She taught me how to make overnight oats, whip up chia jam, and compose a salad worth craving. This cookbook is her second, and is no less than a beautiful extension of her knowledge of approachable, everyday plant based cooking.

It contains sections dedicated to smoothies, chia puddings, oats, and savory breakfasts too. Then there are snacks, main dishes, and scrumptious desserts. Other recipes being showcased and celebrated around the web for this book that I am itching to try next are Angela’s golden french lentil stew, mushroom bolognese, and the best marinated lentils. Others from the book calling my name are the chewy molasses spelt cookies, sun dried tomato pasta, and her miracle healing broth (now that we are heading into cozier times). And the best part is I get to give away a copy of this amazing book to one special reader! The contest is open to US and Canadian residents only, and will run through next Tuesday night, September 20th. Simply enter by leaving a comment below telling me about your favorite cozy drink you are looking forward to this fall. (One winner will be chosen at random and notified next Wednesday.) Happy sips this week folks! – xx

COFFEE SHOP – WORTHY HAZELNUT MILK
From “Oh She Glows Everyday”
Makes 3 1/2 cups of milk (875 ml).

3/4 cup (175 ml) raw hazelnuts
1/4 cup (60 ml) raw almonds
3 1/2 cups (875 ml) water
2 to 3 tablespoons (15 to 30 ml) pure maple syrup (I used only 1 teaspoon)
1/4 teaspoon ground vanilla bean, or 1/2 teaspoon (2 ml) extract
1/2 teaspoon (2 ml) ground cinnamon
dash of fine sea salt

Place the hazelnuts and almonds in a bowl and cover with 2 to 3 inches of (purified) water. Soak overnight for 8 to 12 hours. Drain and rinse. Place the nuts in a blender along with the remaining ingredients. Blend on high for about 1 minute.

Place a nut milk bag over a large bowl and slowly pour the milk into the bag. Gently squeeze the bottom of the bag to release the milk. This process can take 3 to 5 minutes. You should be left with 3/4 to 1 cup of pulp in the bag.

Using a funnel, carefully transfer the milk to a mason jar and secure with a lid. Chill in the fridge. The milk will stay fresh for 2 to 3 days. Give the jar a good shake each time before enjoying.

    When it’s cold out I love doing a raw hot chocolate with maca & cinnamon!

    • Alejandra Mills September 14, 2016 at 12:39 pm

      My favorite is a turmeric ginger latte with maca:
      1 heaped teaspoon peeled and finely chopped fresh turmeric
      1 teaspoon peeled and roughly chopped ginger
      1 tablespoon coconut sugar
      2 teaspoons coconut oil
      pinch sea salt
      1 cup almond coconut milk

  • Jana @ delectablymine September 14, 2016 at 5:25 am

    My favorite cozy drink is a steaming cup of hot cocoa, with peppermint if I’m feeling extra motivated!!

  • Sue Ellen September 14, 2016 at 5:43 am

    My favorite cozy drink is a really good cup of tea.

  • Sandy Gunther September 14, 2016 at 5:49 am

    Hot chocolate. I think this would make a wonderful base for hot chocolate.

  • Lisa September 14, 2016 at 6:08 am

    Turmeric tea! I know I could drink it throughout the year but I like it best when it’s cold outside and I’m snuggled inside.

  • Jess @nourishedbynutrition September 14, 2016 at 6:09 am

    Chai latte with cashew milk is the perfect cozy drink for me !

    However, I could definitely see me warming this hazelnut milk up and sipping it slowly on a chilly fall evening. I need to get my hands on a copy on Angela’s book. I’ve been seeing remakes of a couple of the recipes and they all look so good! Someone needs to make the mushroom bolognese asap! Hint hint ;)

    Also, I can’t wait for the recap of your trip Jessie! Your little bits and pieces you’ve shared so far are magical! Sending lots of happy energy this week my friend!

  • Mason September 14, 2016 at 6:19 am

    After a recent trip to Japan, I’ve been kind of obsessed with matcha! I’m sure matcha lattés will get me through the fall.

  • Megan September 14, 2016 at 6:44 am

    Peppermint tea in front of a fire!

  • Ruth September 14, 2016 at 6:49 am

    Can’t wait to get my hands on a chai pumpkin latte with homemade chai… I usually use coconut milk but I need to try it with this delicious sounding almond-hazelnut!!

  • Vanessa September 14, 2016 at 7:04 am

    I absolutely love a good cup of dirty chai. The combination of delicious chai, with bold espresso, and creamy nutmilk = divine! It’s not something I drink a lot, but it’s a great occasional splurge.

  • Connor Gartner September 14, 2016 at 7:20 am

    As of this week, my farmer’s market is selling fresh pressed apple cider and I’m already dreaming of mugs of warm apple cider with mulling spices! For me, nothing says fall like apples, cinnamon and cloves.

  • Anna September 14, 2016 at 7:31 am

    I love a good cup of hot chocolate with almond milk and good quality melted chocolate!

  • Molly September 14, 2016 at 7:43 am

    Earl grey latte!

  • Lindsay September 14, 2016 at 8:05 am

    I am looking forward to a hot mocha with lots of marshmallows. This cookbook looks incredible!

  • Taylor September 14, 2016 at 8:12 am

    I’m so looking forward to hot coffee on a chilly fall morning. I live in Southern California, too. So I love waking up early and sitting on the beach with a blanket and coffee.

  • Alexandra Robertson September 14, 2016 at 8:15 am

    My favorite cozy drink is dandy blend with a little stevia, cinnamon and cream.

  • Sarah | Well and Full September 14, 2016 at 8:19 am

    Welcome back, Jessie! :) My favorite cozy fall drink is the hot chai at Starbucks. I’ve been having it since high school and it always makes me think of autumn!! :D

  • Shilpa September 14, 2016 at 8:31 am

    Favourite cozy drinks are matcha latte and chaga latte. Can’t wait to make these drinks with hazelnut milk!

  • Emily September 14, 2016 at 9:29 am

    This fall I’m most looking forward to homemade pumpkin latte’s, hot apple cider, and hot cocoa!! Yum!

  • Lee September 14, 2016 at 9:37 am

    Turmeric lattes are my new favorite!

  • Amy September 14, 2016 at 9:39 am

    Vanilla Lattes! With home made vanilla syrup and whatever least processed/most additive free non dairy milk I have on hand. Making my own milk would be ideal.

  • Maya | Spice + Sprout September 14, 2016 at 9:45 am

    Jessie! These photos are so beautiful, I really love the way you’ve captured the pouring motion, and the hazelnuts look so simple and lovely in their element :) Your camping trip sounds amazing, would always love to hear more about it. Oh, and I love ALL the cozy drinks, but I might have to say something blended up with a little molasses, coconut oil, and warm fall spices <3

  • Angela September 14, 2016 at 10:07 am

    Thank you so much Jessie! I am blushing hard core over here. I’ve been hooked every since I found your blog, and am truly honoured for your kind words. Your photos are stunning (just when I thought that milk couldn’t look any creamier!! swoon). I’m reeeeally hoping for a cookbook from you some day. ;)

    • Faring Well September 21, 2016 at 12:25 pm

      You are too sweet! Thank you Angela, sheesh, making me blush over here too! :) So happy you love the post, and am so grateful for your stunning book friend. Happy second cookbook launch! Woot woot!

  • Lauren September 14, 2016 at 10:22 am

    Now that there’s a chill back in the air I am so looking forward to switching from iced coffee to hot. Also I was really into making my own peppermint mochas last year and will definitely be doing it again this year :)

  • Kate September 14, 2016 at 10:40 am

    Im looking forward to hot cups of brazil nut mylk chai, frothy and billowing with steam!!!

  • Frances September 14, 2016 at 10:43 am

    Coffee. Always coffee. I am originally from New England (but currently living in California), and as fall is approaching I would love nothing more than to curl up under a blanket on my back porch and marvel at the fall colors with a steaming cup of coffee in my hand keeping me warm.

  • Juniper September 14, 2016 at 10:45 am

    My kava chaga chai! Spicey, warming, and super relaxing :) This book looks amazing!!!

    • Faring Well September 21, 2016 at 12:01 pm

      Congratulations Juniper! You won the book copy <3 emailing you now! XO

  • Valeria Graves September 14, 2016 at 11:17 am

    A good vegan dark hot chocolate. I can’t wait for Fall! :)

  • Kate September 14, 2016 at 11:22 am

    My go to drink in the cooler months is a chai latte made with dark roasted dandelion root tea, a hint of nut milk and a bit of coconut oil to emulsify. Blitz it for a few seconds in the blender and it becomes a delicious and comforting frothy drink!

  • Tricia September 14, 2016 at 12:51 pm

    Would love to look for a recipe for vegan caramel apple cider. :)

  • joy September 14, 2016 at 12:54 pm

    i really enjoy ginger chai tea when the weather turns cooler.

  • Lindsay September 14, 2016 at 12:57 pm

    Nothing like warm apple cider with freshly whipped vanilla cream

  • Lauren September 14, 2016 at 1:15 pm

    My family has a recipe for hot spiced tea that we always have at fall and winter family gatherings. It’s so yummy and comforting!!

  • Katie September 14, 2016 at 1:47 pm

    A hot mocha! Just a hint of sweetness and a boost of caffeine! It’s be best cold weather treat!

  • Heidi September 14, 2016 at 2:54 pm

    Just reading “cozy drinks” makes me feel all warm and cozy! The first one that comes to mind is a cup of black currant tea. ☺

  • Jessica janzen September 14, 2016 at 3:08 pm

    I love a monks blend tea with steamed milk and vanilla

  • Nina Olsson - Nourish Atelier September 14, 2016 at 3:21 pm

    Wauw, beautifully shot, Jesse! I really want to try this with my coffee now, I’ve been off almond milk in my coffee since while since had a relapse to foamy soy milk instead, but it’s making my belly ache, so I know I need to change again. And big thanks for reminding me that I should order Angelas book! x

  • Caroline September 14, 2016 at 5:15 pm

    Angela’s recipes are near and dear to my heart, too! I have gifted jars of her 10 Spice Mix as gifts many, many times. Thanks for the opportunity to receive her 2nd book “on the house” :) But I’ll purchase with or without your giveaway! For fall drinks, it may not be warm, but I love drinking a cider in the fall!

  • Genevieve September 14, 2016 at 5:25 pm

    I’ve been wanting to try making my own nut milks, especially so I can customize them with extra touches like the vanilla and cinnamon in this recipe. I’m looking forward to drinking hot toddys to warm me up in the evenings :)

  • Jess | Urban Alchemy September 14, 2016 at 6:49 pm

    Hot chocolate for sure :)

  • Ashley Mauceri September 14, 2016 at 7:10 pm

    Homemade pumpkin lattes! Thanks so much for the chance to win.

  • Grandma September 14, 2016 at 8:33 pm

    All the above. I loved reading all your posts. I want to thank Jessie for all the love she puts into her posts. What a sweetheart.

  • Sherrie September 14, 2016 at 9:35 pm

    This is ABSOLUTELY stunning Jessie! Those shot of the milk pour, I’m just dying over them. xx

    • Faring Well September 21, 2016 at 12:26 pm

      Goodness Sherrie – thank you!

  • Maia September 14, 2016 at 9:42 pm

    Chamomile tea with honey is so comforting on chilly evenings!

    Would love a copy of this book :)

  • Erin September 14, 2016 at 10:03 pm

    It’s getting cold already up here in Alaska…. in the blusteries, favorite hot evening drink is mint tea with honey. But I would never turn down a single-barrel aged Irish whiskey neat, either.

  • Kristin September 15, 2016 at 7:40 am

    I love chai lattes! Thanks for the giveaway.

  • Allison September 15, 2016 at 9:02 am

    I am so looking forward to sipping hot tea in the cool mornings. (Without breaking a sweat!)

  • Laine September 15, 2016 at 10:43 am

    As soon as it’s cool enough here in the PNW I’m looking forward to a steaming mug of homemade hemp milk with cocoa, maca, and peppermint. So much comfort in a mug!

  • Sophie MacKenzie September 15, 2016 at 11:42 am

    This would make some seriously good campfire hot cocoa! <3 Happy to have you back friend, and I can't wait to see your snaps

  • jacquie September 15, 2016 at 11:51 am

    tea always tea no matter what the season – peppermint or chamomile depending on mood or time of day

  • Ashley September 15, 2016 at 12:30 pm

    Steamy homemade chai latte with almond or cashew milk. Even better with a tablespoon of pumpkin puree. Heavy on the cinnamon!

  • Emily | Gather & Dine September 15, 2016 at 1:13 pm

    So happy for you and Scott and your wilderness escape together- we all need those moments so much. Your IG pictures were stunning and I’m Iooking forward to hearing more about it! I absolutely love a good hazelnut milk, and adding a touch a cinnamon sounds so good. Angela is such a genius when it comes to healthy recipes. Will have to go find a copy of her book!

  • Jenny September 15, 2016 at 3:29 pm

    This is a beautiful post Jessie. Thank you so much for sharing this recipe! I’m partial to hot apple cider or mulled wine in the fall, but my very favorite will always be eggnog!

  • Lori September 15, 2016 at 5:22 pm

    Beautiful pictures!! I am excited to hear about and see pictures from your camping trip. My favorite warm drinks are a dandy blend cocoa and a pumpkin spice latte made with an herbal tea. Yum!!

  • Akshaya Bhat September 15, 2016 at 7:36 pm

    My favourite drink is this Raw Chocolate Milk with Cacao, Maca, Lucuma, Carob, a pinch of cardamom, cinnamom and sea salt… I make it with Cashew Milk and is downright luscious

  • Emily September 15, 2016 at 8:32 pm

    I’ve never tried hazelnut milk, but it sounds totally delicious! When there’s a chill in the air, I love a cup of something warm and chocolately to hold onto. I can’t wait to try this without the cinnamon and some chopped dark chocolate melted into it instead. Think nutella milk.
    The thought of sweater weather, golden leaves, and hot chocolate is making me giddy!

  • Shelley September 16, 2016 at 10:57 am

    Can’t wait to hear, and see more about your epic trip! From the few photos I’ve seen, it looks like it was quite something. I wish that the relaxed, care-free, vacation version of myself was around everyday. Once I find myself a hemp bag, I am going to be all over this recipe! I’m thinking this will work perfectly in a chai tea latte — mmm autumn, can’t wait!

  • Gina September 16, 2016 at 6:17 pm

    My favorite cozy drink is a fresh ginger tea with raw honey and and a squirt of lemon. Love your blog!

  • Andrea September 16, 2016 at 7:21 pm

    Peppermint hot chocolate with coconut milk :)

  • Marisa Coyne September 16, 2016 at 11:44 pm

    I enjoy a cup of licorice tea with grated ginger. Thanks!

  • Dana O September 17, 2016 at 6:36 am

    I would have to say just having a warm cup of tea this Fall will be comforting since I usually have iced tea in the summer.

  • Linda September 17, 2016 at 8:04 am

    My favorite fall drink is pumpkin chai tea!

  • Suzan September 17, 2016 at 9:59 am

    My favorite warm fall drink is a hot cocoa or just plain old comforting tea. Can’t wait for the cooler weather!

  • Anna C September 17, 2016 at 11:09 am

    My new favorite cozy drink is my version of golden milk. Delicious and helps with issues too.

  • Emma September 17, 2016 at 2:13 pm

    My new favorite drink is The Republic of Tea’s Yerba Mate Latte loose-leaf tea. Whoa!

  • Ashley Hallmark September 17, 2016 at 3:36 pm

    Oh, man…autumn is my favorite and while we have several weeks before it cools off here in South Carolina, I am very much looking forward to mornings with a simple cup of jasmine green tea. I also love a good strong brew of fresh ground coffee with almond milk, so this particular recipe looks extremely intriguing. However, I do have a question – I have been reluctant to make my own nut milk because I don’t know what do with the leftover nut pulp. I would hate to just throw it out so is there a way to use it so it doesn’t go to waste?

    • Cara September 20, 2016 at 12:22 pm

      Several, although many of them require or at least work best with a dehydrator. Google it–I found a cracker recipe that was OK, didn’t love it, but there’s more out there …. Oh She Glows, the first cookbook, has a recipe for granola using almond pulp, but it does require a dehydrator.

    • Faring Well September 21, 2016 at 12:28 pm

      Hi Ashley! I am currently experimenting with recipes and will hopefully have one + a few ideas coming your way soon. So far I’ve been told you can use it in cookies, granola bars, granola, and even in homemade veggie burger mixes! In this cookbook there is a recipe for crackers too. So many exciting recipe experiments to try <3.

  • Stephanie September 17, 2016 at 6:35 pm

    Warm apple cider, chai lattes, and anything pumpkin spice.

  • Stephanie September 17, 2016 at 6:36 pm

    Warm apple cider, chai, or anything pumpkin spice.

  • Sian Therese September 18, 2016 at 7:21 am

    I can’t wait to read more about your trip, it sounds delightful. We just escaped to the beach for the weekend for some much needed warmth, waves and quiet time just the two of us before this bubba joins us on the outside. Home made hazelnut milk is divine, must try this one. Favourite cosy drink this autumn/winter for me has been a chai hot chocolate… mmm!

  • Marie BC September 18, 2016 at 11:25 am

    I love a good cocoa-maca-cinammon-almond milk beverage :)

  • Esther September 18, 2016 at 3:20 pm

    Golden milk with turmeric! I love it with cashew or macadamia milk, but hazelnut also sounds great!

  • Courtney September 18, 2016 at 7:53 pm

    I like to warm up my apple cider on the stove with some whole cinnamon and star anise. Simple but heavenly, and makes the kitchen smell amazing!

  • Jackie September 19, 2016 at 12:44 pm

    I am looking forward to the first cool night to make a turmeric latte (also playing around with the idea of a pumpkin + turmeric latte?)- then add a good book!

  • Lantana September 19, 2016 at 1:53 pm

    Ah, this book looks absolutely stunning!! And this lusciously creamy milk…. Heart eyes hardcore over here. The warm fall drink I am most looking forward to is a good classic frothy, cinnamon-y chai latte… imagining how delicious one would be made with this milk!

  • Jordan September 19, 2016 at 4:05 pm

    Hot chocolate :)

  • Mary September 19, 2016 at 4:35 pm

    Pumpkin spice latte! :D

  • Elizabeth September 20, 2016 at 5:12 am

    A cup of nespresso with steamed cinnamon milk!

  • Dag September 20, 2016 at 12:30 pm

    Is rice pudding a drink?;) I look forward to hearty soups in the fall actually. And turmeric lattes.

  • Krysta Florence September 20, 2016 at 12:47 pm

    My favourite cozy drink is Red Rose tea – with a touch of honey and a splash of almond milk; just like I used to drink with my grandma!

  • Morgan September 20, 2016 at 12:55 pm

    I love to curl up with a warm cup of chai tea, or any cinnamon or spiced drink. Most of the time, I like to keep it simple and drink it straight, but adding a bit of steam almond milk or regular milk with some cinnamon on top is delicious, too.

  • Samantha V. September 20, 2016 at 1:04 pm

    This looks so good!💕 This will probably be my new favorite once I try it! I’m also a big Chai Tea fan!💗

  • Deb September 20, 2016 at 1:20 pm

    I love tumeric milk (or golden milk). I prefer it with almond milk. Yummy and nutritious!

  • Hollie September 20, 2016 at 1:29 pm

    My fave cozy drink is whiskey. But a almond milk latte is mah go to in the morning. Whiskey is just not a morning drink.

    I do not look forward to fall. I find it cold and grey. I mush prefer spring and summer. I love bright colors and sunshine. But I do love the beginning of fall. The changing colors and cooler nights. Crisp morning are fun for training and I tend to Get going faster as I want to be warm.

    This recipe sounds devine and I will give it a try. I live with #thrvegan. And I am always looking for new things to get him away from processed stuff in the grocery store.

  • Susan H September 20, 2016 at 1:48 pm

    I love making my own chai tea latte with almond milk and the Oprah Chai blend from Teavana or the Spicy Chai blend from Market Spice, a store in the Pike Place Market in Seattle :)

  • Cait September 20, 2016 at 1:50 pm

    Mmm crio bru (local Utah company)– for those of you who haven’t tried it, it’s ground cacao beans you brew like coffee in a French press. Yum :)

  • Brianne September 20, 2016 at 1:55 pm

    I love to curl up with a book and a warm chai tea latte in fall! (:

  • Jan September 20, 2016 at 2:02 pm

    I love a good peppermint tea😊. I am going to try this hazelnut milk tonight.

  • Anna September 20, 2016 at 3:32 pm

    Love a good spiced date latte any time, especially fall

  • Elena September 20, 2016 at 4:04 pm

    Hot chocolate for sure!

  • Jacky September 20, 2016 at 9:40 pm

    I love a hot pumpkin mug! I just mix some pumpkin puree with macadamia milk and pumpkin pie spice! But tea is also great when I’m lazy. :)

  • Elizabeth September 20, 2016 at 9:41 pm

    Hot golden milk, made with almond milk, turmeric, ginger, and maple syrup!

  • Jenna September 20, 2016 at 10:16 pm

    Coconut maple matcha latte…but using hazelnut milk sounds even better. I just try this!

  • Amy N September 21, 2016 at 2:39 am

    My favorite cozy drink is a chai tea – with ginger and cardamom.
