It’s not often that I get THIS excited by a new food, but I was at my boyfriend’s neighborhood health-food store this past week and what to my wondering eyes should appear? Pacific Natural Foods now makes hazelnut milk (and even—oh dreaminess!—a chocolate version).
I was hoping that it was going to be amazing, and—no hyperbole—it is supercalifragilistically, expialidociously delicious. So creamy, so nutty, so perfect on its own, so insanely good with chocolate; I hardly knew what to do with myself.
But of course the first thing I did (besides drink a large glass over ice on a hot day) was obsessionally make my chia pudding recipe with it.
And I love that Pacific’s milk is made from hazelnuts from Oregon (which is where my boyfriend is from too-cute), which means its grown-in-the-USA and supports American farmers-Yay!
I have long loved almond milk, hemp milk, and even soy and oat milks, but hazelnut milk is the best of them all. Dare I say, Alt-milk perfection!
