Drinks

Almond Milk (GF)

 

Strawberry Almond Milk (GF)

From Iemke Moore’s Crazy about Nuts.

1 cup raw almonds soaked and peeled
1 tbsp linseed (flax seed)
2 tbsp maple syrup
1 ripe banana
250gm strawberries
3 cups water
1 pinch vanilla

Blend all the ingredients, with parts of the water, in a blender on high speed and add the water until you have the desired thickness.

Fruit Smoothie (GF)

Combine any of your favourite fruits with soymilk to make a splendid blended drink. Freezing the fruits first makes smoothies extra thick and creamy.

1 cup soymilk
1 medium banana, peeled, cut into chunks and frozen
½ cup frozen fruit (strawberries, blueberries, chopped apricots – whatever you like!)
1 tablespoon maple syrup
dash of cinnamon

Place all the ingredients in the blender and blend until smooth. Serve immediately.

Fast Ginger Beer (Raw)

From Flip Grater’s The Cookbook Tour.

Combine: ¼ tsp yeast, ½ tsp sugar, 2 Tbsp warm water. Leave for 5 minutes until it bubbles. Combine: Juice and rind of 2 lemons, 1 Tbsp dried ginger, ¾ cup sugar. Leave for 5 minutes and strain out rind. Combine all ingredients in a 1.5 litre plastic bottle. Fill nearly to the top and leave for 24 hours in a hot water cupboard. Cool before opening – it should be fizzy!
