Chocolate Hazelnut Milk

Chocolate Hazelnut Milk
This luxurious milk celebrates the classic combination of chocolate and hazelnut.  It's a bit like drinking a glass of nutella.
1/2 cup raw hazelnuts
3 cups fresh water
1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tablespoon sugar
1 date, pitted
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
Pinch of sea salt
Place the hazelnuts in a large bowl, cover with water and refrigerate overnight.  The nuts will almost double in volume. 
Drain and rinse the nuts.  Place the nuts, 3 cups fresh water, the cocoa powder, sugar, and date, vanilla extract and salt in a blender.  Blend at high speed for about one minute.  Strain the milk using either a muslin bag or a nut milk bag.  Wring out the liquid.
Store the milk in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.  Shake well before using.
