We at Dr Gaye love to make our own plant-based mylk! Almond milk is one of our favourites because it’s high in nutrients but lower in calories than other non-dairy milks. It’s easy to make and tastes so much better than anything you can buy in a box!
250g raw almonds (soak raw almonds for 48hrs and change the water twice a day)
2 pints water
Nut mylk bag (available from most health food shops)
2 dried apricots or dates soaked for 24 hrs (optional)
- Add soaked almonds and water to high powered blender and blend well.
- Pour into the nut mylk bag and let it drain and drip into a clean jar for an hour.
- Put the nut mylk into the blender with the soaked dried fruit (for taste and sweetness) and its water.
- Blend until smooth.
- Drink and feel virtuous!
