No, I wouldn't advise you to. Tigernut contains starch. If heated, it may gelatinize and thicken like pap. If you are concerned about the safety of drinking your milk raw, this drink is quite safe to drink without heating it. Just make sure you wash the tigernuts and dates thoroughly before blending and blend with clean water.

No, it doesn't. Millet Kunu (Kunun Zaki) is another drink entirely, with different ingredients and taste.

You are welcome. I have used both the dry one and the fresh one and I didn't notice any remarkable difference. Both were delicious, so usage depends on personal preference. Either works fine.

Hello, this drink is healthy and can certainly be incorporated into any weight loss regimen. Both for low-carb diets and non low-carb diets.
Dorothy commented on Tigernut, Coconut And Dates Drink 17 January 2019, 10:19
Yes, but you would have to limit the quantity of dates you use as they are naturally very sweet. Tigernuts are naturally sweet too, so some people don't bother adding dates and that makes it safe for diabetics but all in all, adding one or two dates to your tigernut drink should be fine.

No, it doesn't! You only need the nuts, dates, water and a good blender. After which you sieve and drink your milk. The milk doesn't need to be cooked. Although, if you ever want to do this commercially and really want to tie up all loose ends, it might be a good idea to pasteurize the milk first to kill off any bacteria and pasteurization which involves heat. But you don't need to bother about that. Please go through the recipe above. For homemade, no cooking involved.

I am not sure about tiger-nut milk but coconut milk itself does contain quite a lot of calories and has a high-fat content but I won't go so far as to say it is fattening as long as it is taken in moderation. Dates too are a bit calorie dense. As with all things, moderation is always best.

Hi, if using turmeric, it doesn't need to be cooked. Just add a quantity of ground turmeric directly to your drink; after sieving out the coconut and tigernut pulp, then blend the sieved liquid with your ground turmeric one last time and enjoy your milk

Honestly, I don't know. Research and web articles seem to suggest that the fats in coconut oil help to boost hormones in the body that facilitates fertility and conception but I can't say for sure that it does or it doesn't.

Oh no! Sorry to hear that. Just went over the recipe again and it can definitely be improved upon. Will do that. PS there is a better chocolate pancake recipe on here. It isn't dairy free though. Please check it out : https://www.trybbbe.com/recipe/recipes/chocolate-pancake/ Sorry about your experience, will do better.

Hi, that's what they say. But nothing has been scientifically proven so I can't tell you for sure that it does. But it is a delicious drink and you should try it out.

Hi. After 24 hours, the quality of the drink starts to naturally deteriorate due to fermentation. So if you want to make this commercially, you need to figure out a way to prevent the drink from separating and fermenting after 24 to 48 hours or tell your customers to consume the drink within 24 hours. A 'shake and drink' will usually solve the problem if it is for home use but the taste might be compromised and your customers may not like that. This is usually the one shortcoming of most plant milk drinks. They naturally don't last as long as dairy milk. So you need to figure out a way around this.

Yes definitely! The seed must be removed. I'll go through the recipe again and add that little bit if I haven't already. Thank you very much.
Dorothy commented on Tigernut, Coconut And Dates Drink 04 August 2018, 15:32
Yes definitely! Just use a little turmeric so the turmeric doesn't over power the taste of the drink. Adding turmeric is a great idea and it will even boost the health profile of the drink.

No please don't throw it away. It is quite useful. You can use it to make Tigernut and coconut flour, a healthy gluten free flour. After sieving, just heat your oven to the lowest setting possible, then put the pulp on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper so it won't stick to your baking sheet. Put it in the oven and leave it there until the pulp completely dries up with no water remaining in it. Then using your blender or a spice grinder, grind the pulp until it is in powder form like flour. You can use this flour to bake or to make pancakes. It is important to set your oven to the lowest temperature available so you won't toast, brown or burn the flour. Alternatively, if you don't want to use the oven method, you can sun dry the pulp for a few days depending on how much sun you have where you live until the pulp is very dry with no water left in it. Then grind into powder form. With this sun-drying method, there is no risk of toasting or burning the flour.
