Storage and Shelf Life Tips

Maximize the freshness of your homemade macadamia milk by storing it in a sealed container in the refrigerator. Enjoy within 3-5 days for the creamiest experience.

Troubleshooting Common Issues

Encountering separation or bitterness? Fear not!


Should your macadamia milk separate with solids settling, simply shake or stir before use. For an even smoother texture, extend the blending time during preparation, ensuring a consistently delightful experience.

Bitter Taste

Soak the macadamia nuts for a longer period before blending. Additionally, adjusting the sweetness by adding more natural sweeteners like maple syrup during the blending process can help balance the flavors.

Gritty Texture

Ensure that you strain the blended mixture thoroughly using a fine mesh sieve or nut milk bag. This helps remove any residual particles, resulting in a smoother texture. If using a milk maker, clean the filter basket regularly to prevent buildup.

Too Thick or Too Thin

Adjust the water-to-nut ratio during the blending process to achieve the desired consistency. Experiment with different ratios until you find the texture that suits your preference.

Spoilage or Short Shelf Life

Store the macadamia milk in a sealed, airtight container in the refrigerator. Consume it within 3-5 days for optimal freshness. Adding a natural preservative like a small amount of vitamin C (ascorbic acid) can also help extend the shelf life.
