Fresh Almond Milk


2013/04/16 by nikkiledford

Like bone broth, nut milk is the kind of food adventure that many people shy away from making at home because it “seems like a lot of work”. I’m here to bust that myth whilst adding an incentive. This almond milk is so amazingly delicious that you will NEVER want to drink that carton stuff EVER AGAIN. I promise.

Fresh Almond Milk

2 c. raw almonds, soaked for 6-8 hours
8 c. water or coconut water
3 dates, pitted
2 tsp. cinnamon
dash of salt

  1. Drain the water from the soaked almonds and rinse well.
  2. Add nuts, cinnamon, dates, salt, and water to a blender and blend well.
  3. Using a nut milk bag, cheesecloth, or (Pro Tip!) a reusable mesh produce bag (really fine mesh), strain the milk from the almonds into a large bowl.
  4. Store the milk in the fridge for 5-7 days.
  5. Reuse the almond meal for cookies, paleo granola, or muffins.

Carnitas Bowls for everybody! And by everybody, I mean all my super special clients who will be eating well this week 🌢 Mango Chili Lime Chicken Salad πŸ₯‘πŸ‹πŸŒΆπŸ₯’
This was SO EASY to throw together.
The MVPs
1. Chili lime seasoning from Trader Joe's 
2. Mango Salsa from Costco (I blame @girlsgonewodpodcast for this discovery).
Marinate the chicken thighs in lemon/lime juice and chili seasoning before putting on the grill.
Chop up cucumber and shred some cabbage.
Mix together chopped grilled chicken, salsa, cuke, cabbage, and too with some avocado. β˜€οΈπŸ₯—β˜€οΈπŸ₯—β˜€οΈ Geoff has decided to try the keto diet which means more toast for me 😏 Doin' it.
Had a bit of a meltdown last night and realized I need more life in my life.
Social media is awesome. I love sharing photos of healthy food, fun times, and my awesome family @theledfordcrew; but nothing replaces time with them, giving life and work my full attention, and cultivating my in-person relationships.
For Mother's Day, I'm giving myself the gift of presence and I'm going to do it for the whole month.
Be back later!
