Almond milk is a drink obtained through a process of extraction of actual almonds. It’s not a fatty food (even though it has a high calorie content, 50 calories every 100 ml), and is much used in vegan and vegetarian diets and in those specifically for intolerances.
RECIPE TO MAKE IT AT HOME
You can make almond milk also at home; here’s how:
300 g of almonds, organic if possible
1 litre of water
Sugar to taste
Finely grind the almonds and put them in a napkin or a light tea towel. Close the napkin like a sweet wrapper so that no almonds escape. Pour the water into a bowl and take a jug. Immerge the napkin with the almonds into the water and squeeze the juice into the jug. Repeat the procedure until the milk takes on a nice white colour. Add sugar to the almond milk as preferred.
In this way you will have obtained your homemade almond milk! It certainly won’t be of the same density as that bought in the supermarket, but it will be tastier and more delicate.
In addition, the ground almonds that you have left over can be used to make delicious cakes or biscuits! 😉
