Whether you’re a regular, soy, rice or almond milk drinker. You’re going to like this! You’ll like it because it’s easy to make, it’s tasty and because this recipe is more of method; you can swap-in other fruits!
Imagine berry almond milk, banana almond milk, citrus almond milk…ok, now I’m getting thirsty. I’ll save those for another post.
I chose mango because I’ve only seen mango in bottled smoothies or mixed in orange juice, in a carton. Nevertheless, is the mango in those beverages really mango? Perhaps if it’s organic but nothing beats homemade especially when homemade is easy and low stress. This recipe (i.e. method) is exactly that!
Nutritional perks -
- Mango – Excellent source of Vitamins A and C and dietary fiber. Mangos actually contain more than 20 vitamins and minerals. Love it!
Almond – Helps maintain healthy cholesterol levels, excellent source of Vitamin E, magnesium and fiber. Almonds are the tree nut with the highest amount of protein, fiber, calcium, Vitamin E, riboflavin and niacin.
Mango Almond Milk
Inspired from this recipe. I halved the recipe because I didn’t have a pitcher large enough for six cups
- 1 medium to large mango, chopped
- 1/4 cup raw almonds
- 2 cups cold water
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- pinch of sea salt
Soak the raw almonds in water for at least 8 hours in the fridge.
