Almond Milk has natural nutrients (Vitamin, A, D, & E), and is perfect for those sensitive to gluten. Almond Breeze® is available in Original, Vanilla and Chocolate at any Whole Foods or natural foods section in your grocery store. I particularly prefer Vanilla, and here are some recipes for Almond Hot Toddy and Almond Hot Chocolate.
ALMOND HOT TODDY
Ingredients: 2 cups Almond Breeze® Vanilla 2 ounces spiced rum 1 ounce brandy 1/3 teaspoon almond extract 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon 1/3 teaspoon nutmeg, plus more for garnish Light whipped non-dairy cream to garnish - add Slivered almonds to garnish Directions: Over low heat, combine Almond Breeze® Vanilla, rum, brandy, almond extract, cinnamon and nutmeg in a medium saucepan, stirring constantly with a whisk until very warm. Pour into large mugs, leaving an inch of room to the top. Top with whipped cream, almonds and a sprinkle of nutmeg.
ALMOND HOT CHOCOLATE
Ingredients: 2 cups Almond Breeze® Original 6 ounces bittersweet or semi-sweet chocolate, chopped 1 teaspoon unsweetened cocoa, plus more for garnish 1 teaspoon vanilla extract Directions: Place the chocolate and cocoa in a mixing bowl. Heat Almond Breeze® in a saucepan. Pour over chocolate and cocoa and whisk well to melt and make frothy. Stir in vanilla. If available, use a hand blender or hand mixer to make it even more frothy on top. Pour into mugs and serve immediately. Dust with cocoa to garnish and serve with Chocolate-Covered Almonds.
