Equipment

  • Blender
  • Medium sauce pan

Ingredients

Spiced Almond Milk

  • 4 cups water
  • 1 cup almonds
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp liquid sweetener
  • 4 cups almond milk
  • 4 tbsp plant-based protein powder
  • 1 banana
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg

Golden Milk

  • ½ cup water
  • ¼ cup turmeric powder
  • 2 teaspoons turmeric paste from above
  • 4 cups non-dairy milk
  • 2 teaspoons of a liquid sweetener

Instructions

Spiced Almond Milk

  • MAKE THE MILK. Add the water and almonds to a high-speed blender. Blend on high until the almonds are ground down (2 to 3 minutes). Use a nut milk bag or a clean, white t-shirt to sift the almond from the milk into a bowl. You can repeat the process using the same ground almonds 2 or 3 times to store for later use. Add vanilla and sweetener if you desire.
  • SPICE MILK. Add the almond milk that you just made with protein powder, banana, cinnamon, and nutmeg to a high-speed blender. Blend until well-incorporated. Serve immediately.

Golden Milk

  • MAKE THE PASTE. Add the water and turmeric to a small pot over medium heat. Turmeric can easily stain your clothes, pots, and utensils so be careful and wash right away. Gently stir the water and turmeric into a paste of medium consistency. If the paste becomes too dry, add a little water. Cook the paste for about 7 to 10 minutes. It should be a slightly darker brown color than when you started. Store in a glass container in your refrigerator to avoid permanent staining.
  • MAKE THE MILK. Add the paste and milk to a pot over medium heat. Stir slowly until the milk is warm, not boiling. Serve with the sweetener of your choice.

Notes

Plant-based milks contain concentrations of the protein your body needs for restoring damaged cells and for activating the enzymes responsible for natural detoxification processes.
