Almond Milk Recipes To Knock Your Socks Off

0

While we’ve previously noted that Almond Milk is now a thing you can get across Adelaide cafes, and it can actually makes coffee taste even more delicious (no sorcery required), it’s actually more versatile that you might know. Now, if you’re sitting there thinking that you’re about to hear about another one of those ‘alternative’ food options people say is not only good for you and all dairy free, but it makes you’ll fart rainbows and is accompanied by monks chanting for world peace in your honor because you use it… no.

Almond Milk just tastes good, and quite frankly when you’re having the same thing for breakfast day-in-day-out you’re disrespecting the fact that you could put anything on that cereal or in your smoothie but you won’t. Try something different for goodness sake; you only live once and all that.

If there’s somebody that knows a bit about how good Almond Milk tastes, it’s the crew from Almond Breeze. Responsible for creating a magical ‘Barista Blend’ that doesn’t separate when you’re making your coffee, they have a few other recipes for making things delicious which they’ve been kind enough to share. Because why else would you make the change unless it actually tastes better? Other than to tell your friends and family about how good the food you make tastes…

  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
