Free Healthy Recipe - Almond Milk

Dairy free, Gluten free, Low fat, Wheat Free

A lovely alternative to cow's milk, almond milk is easily made and substituted for regular milk in many recipes. It doesn't contain calcium so make sure to get your intake from other sources in your diet.

Ingredients
1 cup raw, bleached almonds
1 cup water, filtered
1 tsp organic honey
1 tbsp flaxseed oil
3 cups water, filtered
Method

In a food processor or liquidizer, blend the almonds, 1 cup of water, honey and flaxseed oil until smooth.
Add the remaining water slowly until well combined.

Note: Almond drink is available from health food stores. While OK in an emergency it's not as good as making your own as it contains maltodextrin, a digestible carbohydrate made from cornstarch that is easily assimilated by the body and used for energy.
