Today, Lo was checking out the How To post on Almond Milk and wrote in asking:  “Any way to give it flavoring, especially chocolate, that so many of the store brands have?”  GREAT question!  Let me share with you the different flavors I have had success with in the past.  If anyone else out there has flavoring ideas, please send them along in the comments section or by email!

To the Vanilla recipe found here, add these ingredients to Step 3, blend, then strain thru cheesecloth or nut milk bag:

Chocolate Almond Milk: add 2 Tablespoons raw cacao nibs or unsweetened cocoa powder + more stevia to taste
Berry Almond Milk: add 2 cups fresh organic strawberries
Chai Almond Milk: add 1 tsp cinnamon, 1/2 tsp cardamon, 1/4 tsp nutmeg, 1/4 tsp allspice, 1/8 tsp cloves
Cinnamon Almond Milk: add 1-2 tsp cinnamon

Another tip for your plain or vanilla flavored almond milk is to save the leftover solids and make your next batch of raw almond flour from the leftover bits.  Lay them out over a baking sheet to air dry.  Once dry, grind into powder in your blender!

  1. Wow! Congratulations Elise, in the computer world you would be a phenomenal software developer and I would name your program “The Recipe Ripper!” I know, crazy humor, but in my opinion you are awesome at taking apart conceptual desserts and meals that we are all wanting, no craving, and you put them back together in a healthy alternative. Just Fabulous. Thanks. Now, if only I had more time and creative ability to make all these.
