Good evening Readers!
Today I made home made and pure almond milk for my two sweet hearts. Alexis is milk protein allergic and has been so since very early and to not complicate things too much (and to avioid jelousy drama between the brothers) I try to serve them the same food and beverege to the extend it's possible.
In our house they consume litres of calcium added oat milk and almond milk, both almost tripple the price of normal cow milk. They start everyday with a smoothie with coconut fat, banana and some sort of cow free milk and also get pretty much the same in the afternoon after kindergarden. Before bedtime it's time again for some milk and therefor we end up in enormous quantities. They drink a lot!
Long have I wanted to make my own almond milk and actually not for the reason that it's cheaper, I wish it was but it's most certainly not since almonds, the good ones are very expensive also and therefor almond milk is of course the same since it's necessary to use almost 200gr per making. But anyhow, it feels incredible good and healthy that I've now started to make their own.
It's basically so full of love and good vitamins for the children, I just have to keep doing it.
Leon was with me all the time, observing, making noises, eating the swollen almonds that he nicked ...
I've been told to add some Agave syrup, cardamom and cinnamon to add some more flavours. It taste so natural and healthy, try it!!! One more setup is already in the making, so new soaked almonds are waiting to be pure almond milk in two days now!
