Delicious, tantalising and oh so good for you!
Now this is one of the most popular recipes on our detox yoga retreats in the UK. Tatu’s almond and cashew nut milk is so divine that you will put to one side dairy and convert to making your own almond and cashew nut milk as soon as you get home from retreat. We are constantly asked for this recipe and so we have decided to share it with everyone (along with the tahini dressing!) as they are must have’s in your post detox yoga retreat healthy regime. Read below and have a go at making your own!
Almond and cashew nut milk recipe
1 cup almonds
1 cup cashews
pinch sea salt
3 or 4 cups water depending on how thick you would like it.
soak the almonds and cashews overnight in plenty of clean water. Drain and rinse before adding them along with the other ingredients to the blender. Blend 4 to 5 times to get a nice creamy texture. Leave to settle and separate and then sieve through either a muslin clothe or fine sieve. It will keep for 4 days in a fridge. Not ideal for freezing.
This really makes a salad so much more interesting than just leaves, you can also add it to steamed vegetables for a different taste.
Bursting with vitamin E, protein, essential fatty acids and mineral rich this is a fabulous way to get nutrients into your body quickly.
