“Brazil nuts are one of the best sources of selenium, a mineral that is otherwise hard to come by naturally. Selenium is like the rebar on a high rise—it’s the reinforcement for one of the body’s most powerful antioxidants.

In a Thermomix, Vita-Mix or high-speed blender, blend the nuts and water on high speed for about 2 minutes, to make sure the nuts are thoroughly blended.

Rinse the blender cup and place the milk back into it with the remaining ingredients.
Blend to combine thoroughly and taste for sweetness.
