subtly sweet drink
This creamy milk beautifully shows off the subtly sweet flavor of lucuma. It can be used just like any other kind of milk in all kinds of recipe applications, and is particularly delectable in breakfast bowls, smoothies, cereal, or simply by the glass.
½ cup raw Almonds
4 Cups Water
3 Tbsp Navitas Naturals Lucuma Powder
1 tsp Sunflower Lecithin (optional)
1/8 tsp Sea Salt
Place the almonds in a bowl, and cover with 1 inch of boiling water. Let sit for 10 minutes. Strain the water, then pinch the almonds to remove and discard the skins. Place the blanched almonds in a blender along with the 4 cups of water, lucuma, lecithin, and salt. Blend on high until completely smooth. For the best texture, strain through a nutmilk bag or fine mesh sieve (optional). Transfer the milk to a sealable container, and refrigerate until ready to use; shake before serving.
Lucuma milk will last for up to 1 week, refrigerated.
This recipe is unflavored and unsweetened for maximum versatility in recipes, but can easily be spruced up with flavor extracts like vanilla or almond, spices like cinnamon or cardamom, and/or sweeteners like stevia or maple.
