Almonds (Photo credit: Shelby PDX)
So I’ve been experimenting with almond milk. Looking for an alternative to milk and soy milk. I love soy but not so much so for coffee. Then I discovered this love blend in the kitchen. I have a bullet blender style blender but a cheaper but still good version of it with full sized milkshake cups to blend in.
How To Make:
Since I have a bullet style blender I fill my milkshake cup with about a quarter of almonds. Then I place half a teaspoon of cinnamon powder not cinnamon sugar. Next I add 1 teaspoon of Manuka honey. Then I fill the rest of the cup with water and add about half a teaspoon or a quarter teaspoon depending on how much I want to taste the vanilla.
Next, I make sure the blending lid with blades is very secure before I place onto the blender and I blend until I can’t see much of the almond skin and it becomes a lovely pale browny colour. Depending on the type of blender it will take anywhere from 30seconds to 2minutes. Fairly quick though.
Next I strain it as thoroughly as possible using a fine mesh strainer. If I don’t have a nut milking bag then I might use an old clean and sterilized stocking. I tend to keep the left over almond meal to dehydrate and place in cereal. Then it’s ready to put in coffee or tea.
This mix tastes a lot like a chai tea or chai late and it’s fantastic! I like it better than most store bought chai teas now. Wonderful taste, fairly quick to make. I have noticed with other almond milk recipes that it recommends soaking over night. I tried both and got the same kind of results for my almond milk but really it’s up to you on how you make it.
Hope you like what I had to share ❤

Painful pimples that you can’t get rid off and oily skin, but you use a product and get dried out? There’s only one home made recipe I’ve worked out that soothes, gets rid of and clears oily skin without drying you out comepletely and your face or where ever the problem area is, like back or something, feels better and smoother.
Ground oatmeal/porridge 1/3 cup
teaspoon of honey or a tablespoon if the mix is larger [honey sooths]
Cinnamon [optional, also for soothing and healing]
Cocoa powder 1 teaspoon or half if it’s pure.
1 tea cup of boiled and ground up Sencha green tea, let sit till warm.
Place all dried ingredients together and mix. Put honey in the hot tea and mix through. Let the hot tea cool down to a warm comfortable temperature.
Next, mix slowly a bit at a time the tea into the dry mix until it becomes a thick yet moist paste. When it has become a paste apply and leave on either for 20minutes or until dry. This is a once a week recipe or once a month because the oats are quite drying if you do it every day.
If you need more relief from painful acne then u can mix honey and cinnamon powder into a paste and use that as much as u like for soothing and healing.
Works every time.
Also just green tea and oatmeal seems to be very effective for really bad pimples caused by hormones. The recipe seems to work ok on men but tends to work better on girls. I’m not sure why but out of research and finding out how most of us girls pimples come about because of menstruation and hormones, it’s probably got a big factor to do with why this works better on women.
