Almond Beverage

Ingredients

  • 2 cups (500 ml) blanched almonds
  • 3 cups (750 ml) water
  • 3 tablespoons (45 ml) sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon (2.5 ml) vanilla extract
  • 1/8 teaspoon (0.5 ml) ground cinnamon

Preparation

  1. Line a sieve with three layers of cheesecloth. Set aside.
  2. In a blender, purée the almonds with the water into a very smooth liquid. Let stand for about 10 minutes. Strain, pressing the liquid with the back of a ladle. If necessary, strain through a sieve again to remove all residue.
  3. Add the remaining ingredients and stir to combine. Serve cold or warm.

Note

Often called "almond milk", this type of beverage doesn’t contain milk.
