Have you made your own almond or other dairy free/nut milks in the Thermomix yet? Feel like giving it a go? Here’s how …
By the way, it’s really delicious if you add a medjool date and a pinch of salt. Otherwise, for savoury uses, just a pinch of salt will do (I guess you could add some yeast flakes for a slightly cheesy flavour, if you wish).
If you’re in the UK, contact me to purchase a Living Synergy nut milk bag

3 thoughts on “Making almond milk”
at the moment i drink unsweetened Almond breeze which is 40 calories/250ml. On the ingredients it says 2% almonds. How do I know how many calories my almond milk will make?
Sorry for the delay! You could try this app: http://recipes.sparkpeople.com/recipe-calculator.asp. Whilst you use 100g almonds in the recipe, you extract about 85g pulp. Based on that, I suppose it would mean 15g almonds soaked into your milk, so 15g worth of calories, which would equate to 86.2 calories per 500g milk? If you add some sweetener, this would change, obviously. You could even water it down further to reduce the caloric content.
Thanks so much for that. I will check that out 🙂
