Hazelnut Chocolate Beverage

Fresh hazelnuts and cocoa powder come together in this delightful take on chocolate milk.


2 (12 ounce) servings


  • 4 cups hazelnuts, shelled
  • 3 1/4 cups water
  • 4 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder

Place nuts in a high-powered blender with 3 1/4 cups water. Blend on high speed 2 minutes, pulsing if necessary.

Place blended nuts, 1 cup at a time, in cheesecloth and squeeze over medium saucepan. Continue until all of the nut meat has been squeezed and all milk (liquid from nuts) removed. Discard cheesecloth.
