Groundnut (Peanut) Milk Recipe

Equipment

  • Kitchen blender.
  • To strain it you'll need a bowl and a chiffon cloth
  • To boil it you'll need a pot, a gas cooker/stove and a spatula.

Ingredients
  

  • Raw Peanuts (Groundnuts)
  • Water
  • Vanilla extract (optional)
  • Sugar (optional)

Instructions
 

  • Rinse and soak the groundnuts in a generous quantity of cool water for 3 hours.
  • If you are using unpeeled groundnuts:
    Pour warm to hot water on the peanuts and leave for a few minutes or till you notice the skin become baggy.
  • Pour out the hot water and replace with cool water.
  • Rub the groundnuts between your palms and watch the skin come off.
  • When they have all come off, decant the skin in the same manner of decanting beans peels when peeling beans.
  • Pour cool water into the bowl of peeled groundnuts and leave to soak for 3 hours.
  • After 3 hours, blend with as little water as possible till smooth.
  • If you will use the flavours, add them when blending the groundnuts
  • Sieve with a cheese cloth or any chiffon material that does not allow the chaff to pass through.
  • Pour the milk into a pot and cook over medium heat till it boils. Stir often so that lumps do not form.
  • Once it boils, leave to cool down completely, remove the milk skin and serve chilled or at room temperature
