Health Benefits of Consuming Vegetable Milk
Vegetable milks contain high amounts of minerals, vitamins, calcium and essential fatty acids. These milks are a great alternative to the regular dairy products, but they have one flaw and that is they have a limited shelf life. It means that they need to be consumed quickly, stored in a glass bottle in the fridge and well covered.
In this article we shall present you an amazing recipe for vegetable milk, almond milk.
Recipe of Homemade Almond Milk
1 cup of almonds
3 cups of water
1 teaspoon of vanilla essence (optional use )
1 cinnamon stick (optional use )
Put the almonds in a deep bowl and pour over them lots of water. Make certain that there is enough water because almonds accumulate plenty of water. Leave them to soak overnight.
The following day, nicely rinse the almonds, and then place them in a blender. Include the 3 cups of water and start blending; the almonds need to be turned into powder. Drain the solution and then transfer it into a glass jar.
If you want to enhance its flavor you can freely add a stick of cinnamon or a little bit of vanilla.
Note that it is perfectly normal for the almond and water to separate. The only thing that you need to do prior consumption is to shake it. It can be consumed as it is or you can add it into various smoothies and juices, soups or desserts.
Recipe of the Traditional Custard Dessert
A quarter cup of almond milk
5 teaspoons of agave syrup or 3 teaspoons of stevia
1 vanilla pod of Madagascar
First you need to preheat the oven at 180 degrees.
Then, pour the almond milk in a saucepan and then place it on heat so that it boils.
Next, in a bowl mix the eggs, vanilla sugar, and stevia. The resulting mixture combine it with the warm almond milk. Then, place it into the ramekins and pat a little bit on the counter in order to remove any bubbles.
It should be cooked in a bain-marie oven, but previously place the ramekins in a mold filled with water. Cook for half an hour. Once the desserts have a golden color, then they are ready. Leave them to cool off, and after that store them in your fridge.
Have in mind:
The high consumption of almond milk is not recommended for people experiencing kidney issues like kidney stones due to its high calcium oxalate content.
