Almond milk – home made

I soaked one handful of almonds in a cup with water in the fridge over night. I switched the water in the morning and ten mixed it in the blender with only a little amount of water (maybe 2 dl at most). It took a little patience and mixing to get it filtered (not nice drinking it with the small pieces). The milk was sweetened with 2 stevia drops.
The left over pulp can be used for other foods so don’t throw it out. One great application is porridge, see below!

Low carb smooth faux porridge

October 12, 2014

30g butter
1 egg
1/2 dl double cream
Small a pinch of salt
2 Tbsp almond flour
1 tsp psyllium seed husk
2 droops of stevia

Add the butter to a pot and let it melt. Remove from stove and add remaining ingredients and start whisking.

Today I used fresh almond pulp instead of almond flour, which I had saved from making almond milk earlier today. That was pretty nice.
