Fun with Almond Milk: Cleanse Day 10
I found a good recipe online and I have been making almond milk for the past three days with my chai. I have always thought that almond milk chai was lame but that was because I wasn't homemaking it!!
The original recipe calls for:
* 1 Cup almonds soaked overnight and rinsed
* 4 cups water
* 2 Dates
* Honey to the taste
* A pinch of salt
Equipment needed is a super fine strainer and/or a cheese cloth and a blender.
1) Combine almonds, water and dates in a blender at high speed for two minutes.
2) Strain using a cheese cloth
3) Add honey to the taste.
It is yummy! You can use the almond paste for shakes and in baking!
All ingredients combine here.
Strain into a new container.
This is what your cheese cloth will look like after the fact. I had to keep rinsing it. I couldn't just pour in one take.
This is the ingredients for the chai: ginger, black tea and cardamom.
This is the leftover almond paste. I am going to try to make more almond milk with this and see what happens!!
