One great use of tigernuts is homemade tigernut milk, which is perfect for those who are avoiding dairy and following a paleo or autoimmune protocol diet. Tigernut milk is a delicious non-dairy alternative to cow’s milk, with great flavor and texture.
If you’re like me, you might want (or need) a homemade “milk” that is vegan, dairy free, and nut, seed, and coconut free. This leaves almost no options. For those following a paleo or autoimmune protocol diet, tigernut milk is a great addition, and for extremely sensitive people, tigernut milk is a life-saver!
Once I discovered tigernuts, I quickly tried out tigernut milk, because I was using water in place of everything that called for milk. Just like most homemade milks, it was super easy to make!
Depending on how thick you want your milk, you can use between 2-4 cups of water to make the milk. I wanted to see how far I could stretch the tigernuts and I found that using 4 cups of water did the trick! Even without any other additions, tigernut milk is mildy sweet and delicious.Print

Tigernut milk is a slightly sweet, nutrient dense, delicious alternative to many of the non-dairy milks out there. It is super easy to make, and especially great for those dealing with food sensitivities, allergies, eczema, autoimmune disease, and other issues that lead to very limited diets. But, let’s be real, tigernut milk is a delicious treat for anyone!
