What to do

  • 1. Soak almonds in water overnight. Drain and rinse.

  • 2. Add almonds and water to a high speed blender and whizz for 1 ½ minutes to make your ‘milk’. Strain the blended liquid through a nut bag or muslin cloth into a bowl or jug.

  • 3. Add your almond milk back to the blender and add the rest of the ingredients. Whizz on high speed for 1 minute or until everything is well blended.

  • 4. Pour the milk into a pot and gently heat on medium heat until it just starts to boil.

  • 5. Pour into 4 mugs, sprinkle with extra cinnamon and serve.

  • This milk can be stored in the fridge for 3 days.

  • Note: You can store the leftover almond pulp in the freezer to use for other recipes such as gluten free cakes and biscuits.
