Go Dairy Free
Although she had been diagnosed as milk allergic as a baby, Alisa Fleming’s parents were told, categorically, that she would grow out of the allergy. So, as she became more and more seriously ill, she continued, on doctor’s instructions, to drink more and more milk to ‘build her up’ – until, on the suggestion of a complementary therapist, she reversed the process and cut dairy from her diet. She has never looked back.
Basic Almond 'Milk'
100g raw almonds (blanched if possible)*
No soak method: If you need some almond milk in a hurry, skip the soaking time, but use boiling water.
* Truly raw almonds may not be available, but just make sure they are not roasted, salted or seasoned in any way. Rather than blanching almonds myself, I often cheat by purchasing sliced almonds that are ready to go.
Yields 1 serving
240ml unsweetened or plain milk alternative of choice
