How to Prepare Kunu Aya- Tiger Nut Milk Shake
  1. Thoroughly wash tiger nuts and soak in water for 15 to 20 hrs. You can soak it before going to bed at night till the next evening after work. The purpose of soaking is for it to absorb water and soften up. The nuts are really hard such that skipping this part of the process is going to put so much stress on the grinder.
  2. Wash the dates and remove the seeds.
  3. Crack the coconut, break it, remove the edible inside of the coconut and slice it to small cubes if you’ll be using a grinder (the kind you go to blend with outside your home). Or, if you will like to use a regular kitchen blender, further grate the coconut with a vegetable grater to ease the working of the blender.
  4. Peel the back of the ginger and cut it to bits.
  5. Blend the four ingredients (tiger nuts, coconuts, dates and ginger) together with 1 cup of warm water.
  6. Pour the blended mix into a strainer with a mesh sizeable to seperate most of the shaft from the milk.
  7. Add the remaining water to the shaft and blend again
  8. Strain the mix from the blender with a muslin cloth to get the remaining milk.
  9. Pour the shaft away and store the milk in a refrigerator to get it chilled.
  10. Enjoy the chilled drink with your loved one.
