Naked Chocolat Almond Mylk

Choc Almond Mylk_MG_8562

Here is a delicious recipe for a Chocolat Mylk that will leave you feeling nourished and revitalised !  My Chocolat Almond Mylk takes just 5 minutes to make and what I love about it is that you can enjoy it ice cold as a quick pick me up vitality drink or as a warm and nourishing Hot Chocolat that will enliven the senses and heal the body, mind & soul.  You will notice that the ratio of almonds to water is 1:6 ….I like the lightness of this combination with the subtle hint of sweetness that comes from the dates and vanilla bean in the Naked Chocolat.

This recipe makes about 1  1/2 litres of purely delicious chocolate goodness.  I make a large batch and fill it into glass jars that I keep in the fridge.  If I want to enjoy my chocolate almond mylk HOT – I just pour 1 cup of  into a small pot and heat  gently on the stove until it’s lovely and warm – then savour the goodness.

What’s great about Chocolate Almond Mylk:
This is actually an amazing recovery drink that is bursting with antioxidants and essential minerals. Naked Chocolat is rich cacao, carob, maca, cinnamon and pure vanilla bean – ingredients that help to provide sustained energy and to support the endocrine and immune systems. Cacao is rich in magnesium and antioxidants that assist with muscle repair and recovery. Almonds are high in magnesium and potassium that is essential for muscle and nerve function.  They are also high in protein to promote recovery and support the immune system. Maca helps to promote energy and stamina and Tahitian vanilla and cinnamon helps boost mental performance. The Journal of Medicine and Sports Science says that consuming chocolate milk  immediately after exercise and again at 2 hrs post-exercise appears to be optimal for exercise recovery.

1 cup raw almonds
6 cups filtered pure water (use less water for a creamier mylk )
4 fresh pitted dates (adjust accordingly to your taste )
1 tablespoon Healthy Chef Pure Native WPI   – (only add if serving cold)
2 tablespoons Healthy Chef Naked Chocolat

Combine almonds, water, dates and Naked Chocolat into a high speed blender.
Blend for 30 seconds until smooth and creamy.
Strain through a muslin or a nut milk bag.
Pour into a glass jar and store in the fridge until needed.
Serve cold over ice or enjoy warm as the best Naked Hot Chocolat.
Enjoy.

    Thanks Teresa, this sounds like a great treat for the kids. I was just wondering what do you do with the remaining almond pulp after making the milk. Any suggestions or recipe ideas would be great, as I would hate this to go to waste.
