This is a really good shake! Perfect for hot summer evening, even better when sharing with friends and family. Use any nut milk or even oat milk, but cashew milk is tops in my book. It's pretty easy to make too!
I've been having major raw choclate cravings today. I stopped using condiments of all kinds, including cacao, awhile ago but tonight I needed a little induldge if you know what I'm saying. This one is simple. It's a mixture of bitter, tart and sweet. I didn't use any added sweeteners as the cherimoya needs to act as it's own natural sweet goodness in this drink. It's very nice to be able to appreciate natural flavors without having to add stuff to jazz things up. Coconut water, caco, cherimoya. Hits the spot.
A delicious spiced chai milk to impress you and your non-raw friends and family.
For anyone looking for alternatives to dairy milk, you will love this recipe for fresh vanilla almond milk using soaked almonds. Soaking almonds neutralizes enzyme inhibitors and aids digestion. Enjoy it straight from the glass, on your favorite cereal and look for future recipe posts from me that use this vanilla almond milk. Raw vanilla almond milk is enzyme-rich, very hydrating and you can store it in the fridge for about 5-7days. It may separate, so shake it up before using/drinking. I tend to make a bunch on Sunday and use it throughout the week.
Feel free to experiment with this recipe. Want it less sweet? Don't use agave. Want a plain almond milk? Nix the vanilla. Add raw cacao powder for chocolate milk or fresh organic strawberries for strawberry milk. Bananas, mint...have fun.
“This is amazing. It tastes like melty ice cream” a friend once told me as they polished off two glasses. Bingo.
