Almond Milk

Almonds are packed full of vitamins and minerals, are very high in protein and contain almost no carbohydrates. Regular consumption can help lower cholesterol, prevent osteoporosis, regulate blood pressure and maintain healthy heart function. This is a great alternative to dairy milk and for those who are lactose intolerant. If you have time, soak the almonds in water overnight, drain the water from the almonds and discard. Use within 3-4 days.


Ingredients:
250g organic raw almonds
800g water
2 fresh pitted medjool dates or 1 tablespoon maple syrup, to sweeten
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Method:
  1. Place all the ingredients into TM bowl and blend for 1 minute/speed 9.
  2. Strain through a sieve lined with cheesecloth and store in the fridge.
