While everybody is convinced about the health benefits of almond milk, especially for vegans and those on a heavy training/ workout regime, the price of most commercial brands puts us off!

Plus, some people do not like the bland taste of plain almond milk. Here is an easy-to-make but cost-effective Chocolate Almond Milk that tastes awesome and is sure to satiate you! We suggest you follow the recipe exactly as given because we have arrived at these proportions after significant trials.

Even slight changes like using cinnamon powder instead of whole cinnamon spoils the taste. In fact, it is the perfect blend of vanilla essence, whole cinnamon and cocoa powder that gives this almond milk its awesome flavour!

We have also used dates instead of sugar to sweeten this vegan breakfast shake in a healthy way. Apart from being a viable choice for vegans and lactose-intolerant people, this high protein and high calcium shake is also ideal for those on a training and exercise regime.

20 almonds (badam)

a pinch of salt

Method
    Method
  1. Combine all the ingredients along with ¾ cup of cold water in a mixer.
  2. Blend till smooth.
  3. We have used whole cinnamon stick instead of cinnamon powder, as it gives a correct taste and consistency to the milk.
  4. We recommend a high quality a bullet blender or a vitamix. If the quality of the blender is not good it will not be smooth and there will be small almond pieces left. We have also not strained the milk.
  5. Refrigerate till use and serve chilled. It lasts good in the fridge for 3 days we have tested it.
