The recipe assistants had a request for recipes for using almond milk. Almond milk is a liquid made from almonds. It is a nondairy product with half the calories of milk. We were asked to find a recipe for ice cream and here is one that we found.
Vegan Rocky Road Ice Cream
(Adapted from the Vegan Scoop)
1 cup almond (or soy) milk
2 tablespoons cornstarch (or arrowroot powder)
2 cups soy creamer
1/2 cup sugar (taste your creamer first, the one we bought was already super sweet and I only needed about 2 tbsp sugar)
2 tablespoons cocoa powder
1 teaspoon vanilla extract (can use more if you prefer)
Chopped roasted almonds (we coated ours in melted chocolate, yum!)
In a saucepan mix together the almond milk, soy creamer, cornstarch, cocoa, sugar and vanilla. Whisk it all together to mix well. Cook mixture on medium heat stirring constantly until it thickens and reaches a boiling point. Remove from heat, pour into a container and let cool, chill in the refrigerator overnight.
Pour mixture in your ice cream machine and freeze accordingly to the instructions. When ice cream is about done add the marshmallows and almonds just to stir them in. This recipe was found at http://kitchenspace.blogspot.com
We were also asked to find some almond milk recipes for lattes. Here is one that we think would work. The website is: http://www.associatedcontent.com/article/885267/make_an_almond_latte_at_home.html?cat=22
Almond Milk Latte
Coffee or espresso~~Blue Diamond Almond Milk
1. Brew a strong pot of coffee. This would be your normal amount, plus an extra scoop or two. The coffee will be diluted by ice and milk. Or make some espresso.
2. Use plain coffee or a flavor that is good with almond. For example, I like the Starbucks Christmas Blend.
3. While the coffee is brewing, fill your glass to the brim with ice cubes.
4. When the coffee is finished brewing, pour it over the ice, filling the glass 1/2 to 1/3.
5. Add Blue Diamond Almond Milk to taste. It comes in plain, vanilla, or chocolate, all both sweetened or unsweetened. Even the unsweetened variety has a great flavor and enough natural sweetness.
6. Sit back and enjoy!
If you wanted something hot, I would skip the ice and fill the cup or mug with about the same amound of coffee and then add the almond milk to taste. Again, you could use any of the flavors above.
