DIY Almond Milk Almond Milk

You can buy almond milk powder at health shops or in the health food aisle of Dis-Chem and some supermarkets. Alternatively, make your own at home with this recipe…

Blend all the ingredients in power blender and strain through nut milk bag/cheese cloth bag.

1 tablespoon of ghee/butter
2 medium brown onions, sliced thinly
2 cloves of garlic, crushed
1 teaspoon of fresh grated ginger
2 green Thai chillies, seeded, sliced
1 teaspoon of ground coriander
1 teaspoon of ground cumin
1 teaspoon of mustard seeds
½ teaspoon of ground turmeric
1kg of pumpkin, peeled and cut coarsely
1 1/2 cubes of vegetable stock
150gm of spinach
1/3 cup fresh coriander
1 tablespoon of flaked almonds, toasted
Heat the ghee/butter in large saucepan. Add onion, stirring until brown. Add garlic, chili and spices and stir until fragrant. Add pumpkin and stock with water and simmer until pumpkin is tender. Add spinach and coriander, tossing until spinach is wilted. Serve with steamed or boiled whole grain brown rice.

Tip For Week Two

Feeling hungry? Carbs like rice and potatoes are often the go-to bulking agents for meals, but if you want to feel fuller, reach for protein. On a vegan diet that means green, leafy veg (e.g. spinach), nuts, seeds and legumes (such as beans and chickpeas).
