I already wrote that I have so many ideas what to to with the chai spice I mixed. One of these is this homemade chai almond milk, of which everythings is homemade, including the almond milk! I just didn’t grow the almonds ;).

Nut milks are one of these hipster milk alternatives, which you can see everywhere these days, especially in all those hip hipster cafés with fair and hand roasted and milled organic coffe ;). After all I’m still thinking coffee is yucky and I would never pour nut milk in my tea. Ugh.

But, I’m not telling you this, because I do not like almond milk. No, I introduce you this wonderful hot winter beverage made of almond milk and chai spice. So velvety like a fluffy cloud of cotton :D. I imagen sitting on a large and thick fluffy lambs fur and ok nevermind… sometimes I’m getting a bit too creative with images and food (and drinks). 

Making almond milk at home isn’t complicated at all, by the way! The only challenge is to soak the almonds the night before. This is a real challenge to me, since I’m always forgetting stuff like that. Because of that sourdough breads are quite seldom baked these days in this household -.- .

For straining the almond milk I use cheese cloths and double or triple them. I use those cloths quite often and they are indispensable for me in the kitchen.

If you are soaking the almonds tonight, you can enjoy this delicious festive almond milk tomorrow morning!

Maybe we will read each other after Christmas and before the new year and I’ll you what I cooked at Christmas, if it was good ;).

I wish you wonderful Christmas days! Enjoy and relax!

    Liebe Lena,
    freut mich riesig, dass dir die Mandelmilch gefällt – und als Chai Variante garantiert der Oberkracher! Muss ich unbedingt mal testen, deine Chai Kipferl sind nämlich schon alle weg 😉 Die kamen nicht nur bei uns sondern auch bei allen Beschenkten super an!
    Liebe Grüße und – etwas verspätet, aber nicht minder herzlich! – ein traumhaftes, gesundes und fröhliches Neues Jahr!

      Ach Dani, danke für deine lieben Wünsche und Komplimente! Es freut mich, dass die Chaikipferl so gut ankamen!
      Ich bin schon ein großer Chai-Junkie und könnte so ziemlich alles damit verzehren ;).

      Ich wünsche dir ebenfalls ein tolles und gesundes neues Jahr und hoffe wir sehen uns dieses Jahr endlich mal :).
