Iced Quinoa Mocha

Iced Quinoa Mocha

Grain teas are an ancient tradition in Asia, & with good reason—roasted grains make an amazing beverage!

Roasting transforms any grain into nutty and intense. Quinoa tastes the most like roasted coffee, with a full-body flavor, but with no caffeine and with lots of antioxidants. Make this chilly mocha with malted barley powder for a tasty twist on an old favorite.

Making Nutmilk

Whether you’re dairy-intolerant, don’t like milk, or just want to add a little healthful variety in your life, making nutmilk is an easy way to do it. Choose any raw nut or edible seed, or a combination thereof, to make your custom, dairy-free beverage.

Use less or more water to adjust the thickness of your milk. More water will yield a thinner beverage more like dairy milk, while adding less will make a thicker cream-like nutmilk.
