Almond Milk

What you need: 

1 cup of water
2 tablespoons almond paste
1 to 2 teaspoons sweetener, any kind

What you do: 

This makes it the safest option for people with allergies and histamine intolerance. Unlike (most) rice milk, it doesn't contain fermented sugar (even sugar-free), so you know exactly how much sugar it has, and you can leave the sugar out entirely if you want.
1) Put the water, almond paste, and sweetener in a blender and mix until frothy. Enjoy!
Please note: Almond paste is not the same as almond butter. It's much thinner, and is much lighter in color.

I found it at a health food store in Israel.  They generally have the same things as we have in Canada, so I'm assuming the paste can be found in North America too.  It was  in the same section as the nut butter. 

That's a really good idea too though, I'm going to give it a try! 



Where would you find almond paste? Just use 1/4-1/3 cup of almonds (blanched, if you like, but not necessary), and blend on high for a couple of minutes, then strain. Add a dash of salt and sweetener to taste. You can also mix in other nuts for variety. I actually can't have almonds, but I use cashews, walnuts, and sunflower seeds using the 1:3 ratio and get delicious milk every time.
