Raw Almond Spirulina Milk
I had some raw peeled almonds leftover from an Indian dessert I made recently, so I made milk out of them. Not just any old almond milk. No. This milk takes it a step further. Into the realm. Of. SPIRULINA.
See what happens when you eat healthy? You become obnoxious, apparently.
Anyway. The recipe. I keep this jarred up in the fridge and use it as a base for smoothies. It is perfectly tasty by itself, though I’d recommend adding a few dates if you plan to drink it straight.
- 2 cups soaked, peeled almonds
- 1 tbsp spirulina
- 4 dates (optional)
Soak the almonds for as long as you wish. I think I soaked mine overnight. Once they are soaked, the skins pop off quite easily, and deskinning them can be as satisfying as popping bubble wrap, if you’re into that sort of thing.
Blend the almonds and optional dates with 4 cups of water. In a high speed blender. For a long time. Strain the milk using a cheesecloth or nut milk bag. Stir in the spirulina. Done.
Some separation may occur in the fridge, so be prepared to shake shake shake before using.
