Almond and Fig Milk Recipe

Almond milk is a very popular drink in India. There are different versions of this drink. Usually the milk will be very thick with all the nuts and cream with a hint of cardamom flavor. This milky recipe below represents a lighter version of almond milk using fat-free milk and Splenda instead of sugar, it is low calorie and fiber rich. Some dried figs were included to sweeten the flavour for a kind of a dessert or after dinner snack.

INGREDIENTS:

1. Almonds, ¼ cup.

2. Dried figs, ¼ cup.

3. Cardamom seeds, 2.

4. Fat-free milk, 2 cups. (Almond milk or soy milk can also be used here).

5. Sugar or any sweetener of choice, 2 tablespoons.

PREPARATION:

Soak the almonds for 3-4 hours and remove the skin. Crush the cardamom coarsely. Add all the ingredients in a blender and blend everything to a smooth mixture. This can be served as it is. To serve the milk hot, transfer the contents to a pot and cook for a few minutes until it comes to a boil. Once the milk comes to a boil, reduce the flame and let it simmer for a few more minutes and serve.
