Let’s make some almond milk
1. Buy bulk almonds with the shell on them. Place the almonds with shells on, in a bowl of very warm or hot water and let them sit for about 5 minutes. The shells should just peel off when you rub your finger over the almond.
2. Place almonds in water. For a creamier milk leave them soaking overnight. Minimum soaking time is 2 hours.
3. When the almonds are ready, rinse and place in a blender with water. Add enough water to cover the almonds. Blitz in a blender. If the product seems too thick add more water.
4. Pour through a nut milk bag or a stocking ( Please use unused stockings. We will be getting in some amazing nut milk bags so stay tuned.)
Softly squeeze, milking the almond milk into a bowl. Keep doing this until all the milk has been sieved and you are left with the almond meal.
Note: Almond meal can be used raw in any smoothie. You can place the meal on a tray and dry it out in the oven. Just make sure the temp is under 100 degrees with the door to the oven left open.
Almond milk will last in the fridge for up to 3 days.
Remember: Almonds have huge quantities of vitamin E, magnesium, protein, fibre. Your veins and arteries will sigh with relief and go into relax mode. Your heart will give you a big warm hug.Almond Milk Recipe

Bananas help overcome depression due to high levels of tryptophan, which is converted into serotonin — the happy-mood brain neurotransmitter
Berries – These colourful fruits are high in antioxidants and polyphenols, which help fight chronic disease and cancer. They also help with the anti ageing process.
Spinach – Packs a punch! It will help you have good hair, skin and bone health.

2 Fresh drinking Coconuts
Remove the flesh from the Coconut
Blend the flesh, coconut water and the probiotic powder until you have a consistency that resembles cream.
The longer you blend the smoother it will become.
Pour the mixture into a jar and cover it with wet towel or calico.
Place it somewhere where it will be warm for about 12 hours. This is when it will grow into a yoghurt.
If you want it sweet simply add some Berries, Honey, Maple Syrup, Rice Malt Syrup.Coconut Yoghurt
