Apple-Lime Almond Milk
If your looking for a sweeter and even tastier almond milk, give this recipe a try! This is a great post-exercise beverage. The apple juice will help to rehydrate and provide the glucose for muscle glycogen store, which is the energy source of your muscles. The almonds provide protein, omega-6 fatty acids, antioxidants, and other nutrients that help muscles recuperate and accelerate the repair of damaged tissue post-workout.
This milk has a lovely flavor. Try pouring over crushed ice, or adding a sprig of mint. If you want more sweetness, use a full quart of apple juice (946 mL) and leave out the water.
Yield: 1 quart (4 cups / 946 mL)
- 1 cup almonds (150 g)
- 1¼ Tablespoon lime zest
- 3 cups apple juice (710 mL)
- 1 cup water (237 mL)
- 1¼ Tablespoon lime juice
- Place almonds and lime zest in the NutraMilk container.
- Press Butter cycle, set for 7 minutes.
- Press Start.
- Open the container lid, add apple juice, water, and lime juice. Replace lid.
- Press Mix (do not change the default Mix time).
- Press Start.
- Press Dispense.
- Press Start and open spigot to fill your storage container.
TIP: When using a small amount of zest, I use a potato peeler to take off the green lime rind (avoiding the white pith, which is bitter) and press into a measuring spoon.
