  • high-speed blender
  • nut-milk bag or cheese cloth


  • 1 cup shelled tiger nuts
  • 4 cups spring water
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • ½ tsp cardamom
  • ½ tsp nutmeg
  • 2-3 drops liquid stevia
  • pinch Himalayan pink salt or sea salt
  • 2-3 Optional: Medjool Dates pitted


  • In a high-speed blender, blast the tiger nuts and spring water on high until well blended. Set aside.
  • Fill a medium-sized bowl with ice. And over the bowl using a nut-milk bag strain the mixture into the bowl. Discard pulp in bag.
  • Rinse your blender and pour the milk back into your blender. Add the dates, nutmeg, cardamom, cinnamon, and salt and blast again till blended. Strain again. Discard pulp. Stores in the fridge for up to 3 days max.


My favorite Stevia brand to use is the Nu Naturals Alcohol Free Liquid Stevia. If your blender is small, you will want to cut the recipe in half! That's 2 cups of water to ½ cup of Tiger Nuts. Reduce the amount of spices and cut back your date consumption if you want it to be sweetened less. If you can, use organic spices and dates. I'm going for Pesticide free here. Do not be afraid to add more spice if you like it like that! //
