All you need to know about Peanut Milk
What is Peanut Milk?
Peanut milk is made from soaking, blending, and squeezing peanuts, in order to extract a milk-like liquid bursting with peanut-y flavour. It can be used in baking, cooking or enjoyed as a dairy alternative. We at Rude Health are officially peanut pioneers and have recently added the UK’s first peanut drink to our gang of eight dairy alternatives.
When we make our drinks, we lead with flavour, and this mantra holds true for our newest addition. If an ingredient isn’t needed or doesn’t taste great, it doesn’t make the cut. We found that our peanut drink tastes its best when our peanuts are Organic, roasted and blended with spring water. That’s it.
How we like it:
For the fit: Slosh peanut drink in your morning peanut butter and jelly shake or snickers smoothie for a subtle nutty flavour.
For the foodies: Chicken satay, peanut miso ramen, pad thai, peanut sweet potato and lime soup. The peanut possibilities are endless.
For the fanatics: Chug and glug straight from the carton.

How we make it:
For such a little legume, peanuts perform pretty powerfully on their own and we’ve discovered that with a few ingredients and a bit of patience, it’s pretty easy to make peanut milk at home. Want peanuts on tap? Try following our simple recipe here.
Rude Health on Dairy Alternatives
We launched our dairy alternative drinks because we didn’t think people should have to lower their standards on quality of food and ingredients when choosing a dairy alternative. We saw shelves full of ‘healthy’ nut and plant based milks which contained carrageenan, flavourings, emulsifiers, and which were fortified with vitamins and calcium carbonate. These ingredients and additives are not things you would have heard of, let alone find in your own kitchen cupboard.
When you buy a dairy alternative, you shouldn’t expect anything less than what you would use to make your own nut drinks. Our drinks are a simple blend of ingredients that we all recognise. Nothing artificial. Nothing refined.
You’re in rude health when… you froth it like it’s hot. You know your ultimate from your almond. You always shake vigorously.
