In this chufamix review we look at what the chufamix vegan milker is and what you can do with it.
Last year I wrote a blog post about how to make your own nut milk. Very easy in itself, but you spend most of your time separating the nut milk and the pulp. So wring out the nut cloth or cheesecloth until all the moisture is gone.
Now I came across a solution that makes that much easier: the ChufaMix. In the cup you put the water and in the filter you put the nuts or seeds. Then you can start mixing with any hand blender and the nuts will mix with the seeds. But – and that’s the handy thing about this device – the pulp remains behind in the filter. There is also a rod included with which you can go into the filter to get all the nut or seed milk out to the last drop.
What can you make with the ChufaMix?
- All kinds of nut milk such as almond, hazelnut, walnut, peanut, chestnut, Brazilian nuts, cashew, pistachio, macadamia,…
- Cereal drink: with precooked oats, rice, spelt, millet
- Seed milk: quinoa, sesame, hemp, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds,…
- Soy milk: with pre-cooked soybeans
Most plant-based milks you will find in the store are sweetened; sometimes with sugar sometimes with agave syrup. This is because cow’s milk has a sweeter taste, lactose = milk sugar. So that sweet is what the majority of people are used to. If you also prefer a plant-based milk, you can add agave syrup or pieces of date.
In the video below Stijn (and Snoopy) do it for a while 🙂
The ChufaMix is produced in Europe, namely Spain, and is BPA free. Nowadays, appliances (both electric and non-electric) are made in such a way that they break or wear out after a predetermined period of time so that you have to buy a new one. Just look at a food processor, for example. I have one here that is over 30 years old, given to me by my grandparents. Buy a similar device now, and it will never last 30 years. The Chufamix was designed without this planned obsolescence.

Do you also want to have such a Chufamix and thus avoid a lot of PMD waste?
Recipe: Vegan milkshake with peanut milk, cocoa and mint
Peanut milk is gluten-free and of course lactose-free. It fits perfectly in coffee and tea or as a base for a vegan milkshake and smoothies. Ancient writings already confirm its use in Spain (Zaragoza) and Japan.
This recipe (from plantmilk.org) is an ideal snack during the summer months.
- 150 grams roasted, unsalted peanuts (or desalted in water)
- 1 liter of water
- 4 tablespoons dried mint or fresh mint (use a little more)
- 30 grams of cocoa powder
- 4 tbsp panela (= very sweet), but you can also take coconut blossom sugar or agave syrup
- pinch of salt
- Put a liter of water in the Chufamix cup.
- Put the remaining ingredients in the filter and place the filter in the cup.
- Blend with the immersion blender for one minute (go up and down).
- Let the mixture rest for 10 minutes.
- Remove the filter and insert the pestle to filter out the last drops of milk.
- You can make a chocolate cream from the pulp that you can spread on a cracker or use in a dessert.
- Making regular peanut milk? Then only use water, peanuts and a pinch of salt
