Ingredients

  • A litre of water (room temperature)
  • 1 cup (150 grams) of walnuts
  • ¼ of an orange peel
  • 1 tablespoon of powdered cocoa or 1 ½ tablespoon of carob
  • 1 ½ tablespoon of cane sugar or 20 ml of agave syrup or honey.

Preparation

  1. Fill the Chufamix container with a litre of natural water
  2. Put all of the ingredients into the filtering glass.
  3. Mix it all for approximately a minute and a half.
  4. Raise the filtering glass, and then stir it with a wooden spoon until you can see the pulp. Then using the mortar, carefully squeeze out the last drops.

Water temperature

  • As walnuts are oily and soft, the water temperature isn´t important. Room-temperature water is enough.
  • You can also use hot water but it´s not necessary.

Tips

  • Adding sweetener isn´t necessary, but you can if you have a sweet tooth. In most of the recipes, adding sweetener helps strengthen the flavour and also acts as a natural preservative. For those who don’t love sweet things, you can add smaller amounts of sweeteners, or use fruits as a substitute.
  • When it´s time to strain, the pulp is very thick, so stirring it with a wooden spoon before squeezing helps the process along.
  • The pulp is really tasty and it is perfect to make desserts with. The easiest way is to add more cocoa to turn it into a chocolate cream.
  • You can make the drink using only walnuts, without cocoa or orange peel, and it is also very good. Make sure that the walnuts are not rotten beforehand!
