DIY: Almond Milk | Biscoff Almond Milk Pops

29. Almond MilkPin

 

Time for this month’s 3 back-to-back! I have decided I may leave the series for next month and maybe even September since I may be in the hangover of coming back after vacations. πŸ˜‰ Just an excuse, you see… Hehe… I guess you would have got it from the title of today’s post about what the theme is going to be – yes, it is going to be some DIYs that you can make at home plus a recipe that uses it. Sounds good? Like receiving a bonus, right? πŸ˜€

 

The first I decided to do was how to make almond milk. Almond milk never occurs to you till you have a problem where you can’t have milk. I love milk, whether it is cold or added into tea or into my smoothies. Even though I don’t have any addiction, but I love my milk in any way. Imagine my situation when the doctor told me to go vegan while I started my medication. The first thing that came to my mind was tea. God, now how to make a good strong tea without milk? πŸ™ I literally wanted to cry, but then I consoled myself that it was good for me. After a week of withdrawal symptoms, I weaned off tea, I must say – even though I miss it still. πŸ˜• There is soy milk available in the market but I can’t stand the smell of it. The initial pack of almond milk I bought from a store didn’t go down well with me – I really didn’t like it. Then, Jehanne assured me that it was easier and cheaper to make almond milk at home, and that’s how I decided to make it.

All you need is some almonds soaked for a long period of time. Then you wash it, add water and blitz it well. You then strain the milk off and add something to enhance its taste. Sounds easy? I must say it was really delicious, definitely tasted more “almondy” than the store bought one. The only problem I faced is that it would get spoiled soon. You have to use it within 2 days or else the milk separates. I assumed it is due to the use of hand force to strain the milk, but it still happened when I used tongs to do the straining. So if you have any plans to use up the almond milk quickly, then make the below quantity or else make half of it – that’s how much I make most of the time. Thankfully I have found a good enough brand, which I liked so when I go really lazy, I still go and get a pack. πŸ˜‰ When it comes to chai, personally speaking, I didn’t like chai in almond milk. But when the craving hits, I do make once in a while, though my tongue and heart revolts against me for providing a very diluted taste. πŸ˜€

 

With almond milk, I made these simple and delicious Biscoff flavored popsicles which were devoured in no time. Even though I have come to liking Biscoff, at times, I do feel that it is a tad bit sweet for my taste buds, so I have very little doses of it if I want to lick off the spoon. πŸ˜‰ I already have used Biscoff in this granola and absolutely loved it, so naturally, these popsicles really appealed to me. What more, it’s totally vegan! πŸ™‚ Off to both the recipes…

  • Put the almonds along with the water into a blender and blend for around five minutes till the almonds have very well crushed.
  • Prepare a pan with a sieve and muslin cloth above it. Pour the blended mixture over the cloth and press down to release the milk.
  • Pull together the cloth and using tongs, tightly squeeze them to extract maximum milk.
  • Add the vanilla and blitz briefly to combine.

  • Pour into popsicle moulds and keep in the freezer till done.
  • Run under running water and remove off the mould. Enjoy!

Notes

You do not need to discard the almond meal. You can dry roast it and use it in your recipes or add it to your smoothies.
Before each use, shake the bottle well since the residue stays at the bottom.

  14. Ah! first off, I am glad your recent makes are finding its way to the published from drafts! Get them all out gal! Almond milk – I never had to make them and hope I don’t have to either. But have heard a lot of them say the store bought almond milk is of no good. What is the brand that you have come to like? So I can look for that whenever I am in need. πŸ˜›

    Biscoff! now that is my new love, you know. I went hunting for the spread last week but came back with the pack of biscuits again. Hoping to make something out of it rather keep munching.

    Your photography is getting really better and better. I love the pops picture, you have got the focus perfectly – the complete stretch of the pops. Thats too good.

      Alpro is the brand that I have come to like though it goes out of stock most of the time… Thanks a lot Fami darling for your looooong comment… πŸ™‚
