Badam Kaachiyathu/ Almond milk

The health benefits of Almonds are never ending.
I love the versatility of Almonds and when infused into milk, it serves as best warm drinks that can be served.
This drink is easy to make however the peeling part is so time consuming for me. Also it requires to be planned ahead as Almonds takes time to soak. If you want to make it immediately, you can still do it by soaking in hot water or simply by microwaving with little water, so the skin peels off easily. But I really do not like it that way as I feel the flavor somehow becomes a little vague by doing so.































Over to the recipe,
Ingredients:

  • Almonds-20, soaked for about 2 hours and peeled
  • Milk- 2 cups+ 1/4 cup
