Sweet Rose Almond Milk

Try this new twist on a classic favorite...why not try adding rose water and coconut crystals to your almond milk recipe for a dreamy, creamy, ultimate gourmet experience.

INGREDIENTS:
  • 1 cup raw almonds (soaked 8-12 hours)
  • 3 1/2 cups water
  • 2-3 tablespoons coconut crystals (depending on sweetness preference)
  • 1 tablespoon rose water
  • 1-2 tablespoons dried rose petals, for color (optional)
DIRECTIONS:
After soaking, rinse almonds thoroughly. Place almonds, coconut crystals, water, rose water, and rose petals (if using) into a blender.
Blend until the nuts are fully pulverized. Pour through a nutmilk bag  positioned over a large bowl. Squeeze thoroughly to strain out all the liquid. Transfer to a bottle or jar and refrigerate. Shake well before drinking.
Notes:*Feel free to omit petals – the only difference will be that your milk won't have a slightly rosy hue.
