I love chai anything. Chai tea, chai cookies, chai milk, you name it! So it was only natural that after successfully making my own chai tea from scratch, that I would then branch out into other things, namely milk! So, I present to you, my very own Almond Chai Milk, RAWmarkable style!
Let us begin!
You will need:
– 1/3 cup soaked almonds (soak them overnight, about 8 hours or so. This is for blending purpose and health reasons. For more information, please see my article, Soak Your Nuts!
– 4 cups filtered water
– 3 tbsp. organic maple syrup (you can also use honey or soaked dates for sweetener as well)
– 1/4 tsp cinammon
– 1/4 tsp. nutmeg
– 1/4 tsp. vanilla
– 1/4. tsp. cardamom
– small pinch of ground ginger
– small pink of black peppercorns
Put the nuts in your blender, add the spices and then the water. Blend on high until everything is fully mixed, this can take about a minute or so.
Once you are done blending, you can either strain your nut milk with a cheesecloth to get rid of the pulp, or you can just pour it into a glass and drink it like I do. Top with some cinnamon and drink up!
And, what else can you do with this delicious chai nut milk you ask? Why, make a delicious raw cereal of course! Below we have a bowl of bananas, dates, goji berries and coconut. I soaked the almond milk in it for about an hour so that it could infuse my fruits, and it was amazing! Try it!
