  2. Drain the water, rinse, and place the hazelnuts in a blender. If using a sweetener add it now. Pour the water into blender, blend until hazelnuts have completely broken down. Place muslin/cheese cloth over a colander and place onto of large bowl. Pour the liquid over the cloth, then pull up on all ends to squeeze out as much liquid as possible. Serve straight away or store in the refrigerator until you are ready to use. It will keep fresh for 5 days. The milk might separate a bit while it sits, just give it a quick stir or shake and it's ready.
