Raw Almond Mylk - Vegan MoFo 2013 Day 1


Almonds

Happy MoFo to you
Happy MoFo to yooooou
Happy MoFo, happy MoFo
HaPPy MooooFoooo toooooo yoooooooooou

Welcome to the Vegan Month of Food 2013 everyone! If you didn't already guess, the Happy MoFo song is sung to the tune of the Happy Birthday song. :D

Throughout the month of September, I'll be sharing recipes for Raw Vegan Foods here on my blog. It's been a good challenge for me, pushing myself to create completely raw recipes. I have put together a bunch of dishes over the past couple of weeks and I'm really happy and excited to be sharing them with you over the coming days. I still need to create many more recipes so that I can do at least twenty and possibly thirty blog posts this month.

So far, all the recipes I've concocted are 100% raw and I'm very proud of that. Down the line, there's a chance I might cheat a bit here and there and use one or two non-raw ingredients. But I will ensure that even those recipes are at least 80% raw.

I'm going to focus on using primarily local ingredients in my recipes so that people in India can attempt raw, vegan foods with what is easily accessible to them. I will occasionally indulge in speciality raw food products that might not be available in India. When I do, I'll share links so you can order them online and import them if you wish to do so.

Now that the intro is over, let's go to my first recipe offering for Vegan Mofo 2013! :)

I thought I'd cover the basics first. Since I'll be using Almond Mylk, in a couple of recipes later, I figured I'd start off by sharing a simple, step-by-step micro tutorial on making Raw Almond Mylk.

Enjoy! :)



See you back here tomorrow. I'm off to blog hop now and check out all the amazing recipes that everyone else has posted on Day 1 of Vegan MoFo 2013. :)

  4. Love your theme Susmitha! Almond milk was the first step I made into Vegandom years ago. I remember taking the first sip, not knowing what on earth it would be like and then falling in love. Can't imagine not having my daily dose now days.
    Great video. Looking forward to the next Raw adventure!

      I discovered Almond Mylk long after turning vegan but even I fell in love with it at first sip. It's sooooo yummy!

  5. I really enjoyed your how to video! Almond milk is one of my favorite nut milks, especially when it's homemade. I can't wait to follow along and see everything you create this month!

  12. Can we use almond milk to make coffee? Can the milk be boiled with coffee decoction?

    1. Almond mylk will break if you boil it with coffee. But after heating the black coffee, you can stir in a little bit of almond mylk while serving it.

    2. Although, the best tasting combination with coffee is coconut mylk. :)
