Ingredients

Here’s everything you will need to make Chocolate Almond Milk:

Almonds

Did you know that almonds are not nuts?

Almonds are actually edible seeds that you can get from almond trees. They have a hard shell with the seeds inside. The almonds are popularly produced and used in the Middle East for their fantastic quality.

When it comes to flavor, almonds have a sweet and nutty taste that you can intensify when you roast or toast them. Raw almonds tend to be crunchy and crispy but you can still turn it into a creamy and smooth milk.

Health Benefits of Almonds

  • Since they are low in carbohydrates, almonds can help you manage your blood sugar.
  • A study in the Comprehensive Reviews in Food Science and Food Safety found that almond skin has antioxidants in the skin.
  • Almonds are rich in magnesium which is good for keeping your blood pressure levels at bay.
  • WebMD mentioned that almonds can also promote a healthy gut to boost your immunity.
  • With their high level of protein and fiber, almonds will also make you feel full for a longer time.

You can enjoy almonds in different ways. Sometimes, I love pairing it with fruits, oatmeal, smoothies, and even baked goods. I also suggest using these for Granola, Almond Loaf Cake, and Almond Oil to savor more of the almonds!

Cocoa powder

What’s the secret to thick and chocolatey milk? Cocoa powder!

Cocoa powder is made of roasted and ground cocoa beans. Once the beans are harvested, they are fermented, dried, roasted, and ground until fine. There are two types of cocoa powder: natural and Dutch-processed.

Natural cocoa powder has more of an acid base with a touch of bitter flavor. Meanwhile, the Dutch-processed cocoa powder is milder in flavor and darker in color. Both are popular options for baking and making drinks.

The powerful chocolate flavor of the cocoa powder, mixed with a hint of sweetness, also tastes perfect with the almonds. Did you know that cocoa is the secret ingredient to Dark Chocolate, too?

Raw honey

Honey is one of the best sweeteners you can use for the Chocolate Almond Milk.

It has a natural sweet and sour flavor that tones down the cocoa powder and almonds for a balanced taste. The honey’s thick and sticky consistency will also melt into the drink for a fine texture, too.

Raw honey also serves as a healthy sweetener for a better-tasting drink or dish. It’s my go-to sweetener because of its rich flavor, great texture, and fantastic health benefits.

Vanilla extract

What better way to complete the Chocolate Almond Milk than with vanilla extract?

Finish off the Chocolate Almond Milk with vanilla extract to get a more intense flavor. Even a bit of this seasoning can instantly improve the drink. It also has a warm and woody flavor to give the milk a soothing effect.

Vanilla extract also has a distinct aroma that will excite your senses before you drink. It’s actually one of my favorite sweeteners for drinks that I make at home.

No sugar or preservatives are needed. Just organic, fresh, and healthy ingredients! You will certainly never regret using these to make Chocolate Almond Milk.
