We know the many benefits that almonds- the king of dry fruits has to offer, let’s look at some fun & easy ways to incorporate them into our diets.
To make Almond Milk follow this guide –
-1 cup – almonds
-4 cups of water
-Cardamom powder/kesar/jaggery – optional
Method Of Preparation
1. Wash the almonds in running water thoroughly, a couple of times
2. Soak the almonds in sufficient water for at least 6-8 hours
3. Rinse the almonds and drain the water used for soaking
4. Add the soaked almonds to a grinder
5. You can add cardamom powder for some flavour
6. Add water and blend to a smooth paste. Add more water, if necessary
7. Strain it to remove the pulp
8. What gets collected in the vessel is almond milk
You can add some kesar & jaggery and drink it up. It tastes very yum.
Or you can use it in your porridges, cereals, smoothies & shakes.
## Warm it using the double boil method – Which means don’t directly heat the milk. Place a big bowl of water on the stove. Bring it to boil. Now place the bowl of almond milk and let the boiling water warm the milk. Don’t heat too much, else the milk may curdle
Store in the refrigerator and use before 2 days for your kids (fresher the better)

My son was about 5 months and I was beginning to think about introducing solids. I wanted something traditional & healthy yet quick & easy to make at home. But to my surprise I found most of the foods available were filled with excess sugar, maltodextrin, milk powder, artificial flavors, colors etc.
I decided to never feed my son these boxes of food. But was that a good solution? What about other babies who were eating them because their parents had no other option or were not aware of the harmful effects of these additives?
This very thought triggered me to think of bringing back traditional baby food recipes that were made just like how our grandmas made it for us!
