My apologies you didn’t hear from me for a little while. I moved a couple of weeks ago and have been without internet access.
I now live 2 streets from the beach and I’m very happy here. It feels like I’m on holidays. Here’s a shot of the beach at 6 am. Just beautiful. Today I’d like to share a simple recipe with you: – home made almond milk.
Store bought almond milk can be filled with toxic and unnecessary ingredients. This recipe is so simple that most of the work takes place while you’re sleeping (or at work).
You can make a small or large batch. Just depends on how fast you will get through it. This recipe makes 2 cups and will keep for 2 days in the fridge.
I’ve used organic almonds in this recipe (pesticide free) and filtered water so you can start the day knowing you have pure goodness in your system.
Uses for almond milk
Add it to a bowl of crunchy buckwheat muesli
Add to smoothies and shakes
Use in place of anything that calls for normal milk
Why this is so good for you
Almonds reduce the risk of heart disease, build strong bones and teeth, lower rise in blood sugar, reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s disease, nourish the nervous system and aid in weight loss.
