Best Way to Make Almond Milk at Home

Almonds are a nutritious low carbohydrate food which can be easily carried on the go. Over the years in Australia as people have become aware of the health benefits which a handful of almonds give, the demand for almonds has gone high.

With the increase of Almond nuts in Australia, Almonde is in the best place to order raw and pesticide free almonds which will also be delivered to you quickly (overnight if you are in the suburbs of Sydney Melbourne and Brisbane).

You can try out many easy homemade recipes with almonds rather than buying it from the store like almond butter or almond milk. Ingredients required are raw almond nuts which have been soaked overnight. We also need 2-3 dates and a half a cup of berries along with two tablespoons of Cocoa powder, one teaspoon of vanilla extract and filtered water with some salt for taste.

Add the filtered water, the soaked almonds, and salt into a blender and blend it for about 2-3 minutes until it is smooth and creamy try to get most out of your almonds. Strain the almond milk into a mixing bowl and squeeze all the milk from the extract and transfer it into a jar and store it in a refrigerator. Shake it well always before drinking.

Buy bulk almonds from Almonde, a registered brand of wholesale food suppliers Opera Foods.

 

How to Make Almond Butter at Home

It is always cheap to buy raw almonds online than Almond butter. If you start making your own Almond butter at home you are roughly saving about $8 every time you do so.  The recipe for making Almond butter at home is very easy as all you need is raw almonds and a bit of salt or granulated sugar for your taste. You can buy raw almonds in bulk from our online store at a very affordable price and even get it delivered to your home.

Firstly heat the almonds in an oven for about ten minutes. Then keep it aside to cool down until the almonds are slightly warm but not extremely hot. Then transfer the almonds into the processor and start processing it until it appears creamy. You should stop the processor and scrape the sides after every 5 minutes but this entire process will take up to twenty-five minutes. The almonds will start breaking down into small crumbs and then into flour and lastly, it will turn into silky-smooth almond butter.

Once it becomes totally small and creamy you can (if your really must) add a little salt or granulated sugar for taste and transfer it into a glass jar and then store it in a cool place. Your Almond butter is ready and it generally lasts for a month.

If you keep it strictly healthy, without adding sugar or salt to the mix, Almond butter becomes a healthy topping for your Porridge, Smoothies or Acai Bowl ingredient.
