Almond Milk

Welcome to 2013!  It’s going to be a fantastic year!

I wanted to start the year off with a healthy alternative to dairy milk.  Dairy causes many issues for people in relation to digestive upset, excess mucous causing unnecessary runny noses, acne, aggravation of eczema, etc.

So an excellent alternative is ALMOND MILK!
It is so easy to make & is full of calcium and protein. 

Simply soak 1 cup almonds overnight and you’ll be ready to make your fresh batch of almond milk in the morning.  It’s super quick.  Soaking the almonds releases the enzyme inhibitors from the shell, making it easier to digest. 

Almond Milk
1 cup almonds (soaked overnight)
2 cups filtered water
Additional add ins – 1 fresh date, 1 vanilla bean, 1 tsp cinnamon

Tip the water out the following morning from the soaked almonds.  Combine the almonds plus water into a blender & add in any extra add ins.  Blend again.  Strain through a milk bag, muslin cloth or even a chux cloth.

It stores in the fridge for 2-3days.
Enjoy on muesli, in smoothies or just as is.  My favourite combination is with 1 fresh date and 1 vanilla pod.
