Toasted Almond Milk

Picture1118_edited2_2

I always like to come up with some new recipe for each season. It is sort of how I mark my years. Since I will never remember your name but will remember what we ate 20 years ago. So when I have lavender hot chocolate, I remember that Christmas. My recipe for this fall is Toasted Almond Milk. Now I did see this idea some were and now I can not find it. I had to make up my own version, so now it is my recipe ;-)

Do you remember in the lavender chocolate mousse recipe I talked about how you infuse the milk with the lavender. This is basically the same thing. You toasted almonds in the oven, infuse the milk with it and make hot milk from that. If you have not infused milk before, this is a great way to add a bit more to your recipes. Also if you are on a food budget like me, it is a fairly inexpensive idea. Now I remember in the recipe they threw away the almonds away after they infused them. Horror, almonds are expensive. You can save the almonds (they still have an almondy taste) for your oatmeal the next morning (store in fridge) or I just ate mine with my hot milk as a yummy snack. This milk does taste like toasted almond, but it is a soft taste, not strong. If you want it more almondy, add more almonds. Enjoy on a nice gray day.

I'm with you--who could bear to throw almonds away!!!!

Yet again, you have opened my eyes to something I would never in a gazillion years have thought of on my own : )

Willyalookatchoo! I am not a milk girl at all, but I do love me a whole lot of almonds and even I could be convinced to drink milk if it were almond flavored!

Of course I've double commented --- but that's the way my mind works --- a new idea, a new comment! LOL!

Great idea! The nutmeg and pure maple syrup are a delightful addition to the almonds and milk. Since we're talking cooking this afternoon (grin) I'd like to share my almond milk recipe with you as well. Our family enjoys almond milk made by soaking the almonds overnight (blanched or whole with skins). Then, place in blender with some cold water (about 1 cup water to 1/4 cup almonds). Whiz until finely ground --- add a dash of salt, some pure maple syrup, and a touch of vanilla (or nutmeg) and you're all set with a delicious milk that's great for cereal. Delicious, but not any better than yours, just a different idea. :)

I hope you are having an awesome day. Indian Summer is here and it's simply perfect outside!!!!!

What a yummy recipe! Thank you so much for sharing it. I love the idea that you come up with a new recipe to mark the changing seasons--what a delicious way to celebrate. Your autumn vignette picture is lovely.

Hi,
Almond milk sounds yummy! If you put some in coffee, maybe it would flavor the coffee.
Have a great day!
