Refreshing and Healthy Drink Recipe – Almond ginger milk

Almond ginger milk

We have some good quality organic almonds arriving from Europe. They were then activated and peeled. I made almond milk once a week with different flavours, hmm.., it tasted so good and refreshing. Try the chilled one, it is  soothing in this hot weather.

I do not go for store-bought almond milk or almond powder as they always seem emitting an offensive odour.

Here is the recipe to share with you.

Ingredients:

Organic almond 100g

Filtered water 400g

Fresh organic ginger root  3 slices

Macrobiotic sea salt 1 pinch

Method:

  1. Soak almond milk with enough filtered water overnight.
  2. Drain & rinse under running water. Add 400g filtered water and puree them in a blender for about 1 minute together with the ginger.
  3. Pour into a stainless steel pot, bring to a boil and stir a few times. Add sea salt.
  4. Let cool. Transfer to a cotton bag, and squeeze out the milk.
  5. If you like a creamy consistency, you could add a pinch of organic guar gum to the cold almond milk and mix well. There is no need to add sugar to the almond milk and it tasted sweet naturally.

Flavours:

You could add organic matcha green tea powder, organic carob powder or even organic toasted soy powder or activated brown rice powder for different flavours to suit different moods. Half a teaspoon of organic ginger powder could be used instead if you do not have fresh ginger.

The spent:

You could add the almond spent to pancake, cookies or bread.

Enjoy.
