Two Ways with Nut Milk – Almond Creamery

Two Ways with Nut Milk – Almond Creamery

Being lactose sensitive made me seriously reivaluate how i was eating last year. I decided to take it little more seriously and while strolling through a local Farmers Market I found The Almond Creamery. Adri is the lovely warming soul behind the brand and she pours love and knowledge into every bottle.

Very soon they are going to be launching something new and exciting and I am really looking forward to it! But before then I wanted to show you two recipes with two of their nut milks…enjoy!

The first recipe is the perfect start to your morning, it is these Green Protein Pancakes and here is what you need…

Green Protein Pancakes

Prep Time: 10 Minutes

Cooking Time: 15 Minutes

Serving: 1 or 2 (if you are feeling generous haha)

Ingredients

  • 1 cup Protein Powder, of your choice. Mine 
  • 1/2 cup coconut flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 2 cups spinach
  • 1 spotty organic banana
  • 1 free range egg
  • 1 cup Vanilla nut milk from Almond Creamery
  • 1/2 cup Coconut yogurt (dairy-free)
  • 3 Tbsp mixed berry coulis

Directions

  1. Place the protein powder, flour, baking powder, spinach, banana, egg and nut milk into blender and pulse till well incorporated
  2. Pour a few tbsp of the batter into a greased pan on a low-medium heat.
  3. Let pancake cook for 2-3 minutes and flip and let cook another 2-3 minutes or until golden brown.
  4. Repeat with the rest of the batter until you have finished all of the batter.
  5. Combine the coconut yoghurt and mixed berry coulis and top the pancakes.

I find that it is little easier to add Almond Milk to my breakfast rather than my lunch or dinner options. I sat with the classic option and instead of pouring it into my coffee or developing a new protein pancake, I decided to use the Classic nut milk in a comforting and warming bowl of tomato soup…the perfect winter meal.

Creamy Tomato Soup 

Prep Time: 15 Minutes

Cooking Time: 1 Hour

Serving: 4-6 servings

Ingredients

  • 5 medium whole tomatoes
  • 2 cups cherry tomatoes
  • 1 cup filtered water
  • 1 cup Classic nut milk from Almond Creamery
  • 1 small red onion
  • 1/2 tsp red curry paste
  • 1 Tbsp tomato paste
  • 4 garlic cloves
  • 2 dates, pitted and chopped
  • Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tsp cayenne Pepper
  • 1 tsp smoked Paprika

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 180C.
  2. Roast the cherry tomatoes on a lined baking sheet for 25-30 minutes or until blistered and soft.
  3. Combine all the ingredients into a Vitamix or high speed blender and blend until smooth.
  4. Pour into a large pot and bring to a simmer, allow to simmer for 15 minutes or until the soup has thickened to a desired consistency.
  5. Store in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
  6. Enjoy and serve with fried mushrooms, roasted tomatoes and a drizzle of olive oil.

The Almond Creamery has made it possible to not feel as if you are missing the component of milk and their nut milk formula is the perfect substitute.

If you try any of these recipes please send me an email to megandanielsfood@gmail.com and as always…

HAPPY EATING!

  1. GOVERNMENTS have become too reactionary perhaps as a result of their ignorance of the enormous power of the press.

    Many past leaders, though, expressed the power of the press in strong terms.
    To Thomas Jefferson (1743-1826), the third President of the United States of America,US, given a choice
    between having a viable press without a government or a government without a press, he would not hesitate an inch to opt for the former.

    On his part, one time Prime Minister of Britain, Harold Macmillan (1894-1986) once opined that in times of war, the Ministry of Information should be
    known as the Ministry of propaganda. In any case, government is constantly in a
    state of war.

    One man who thoroughly understood the working of
    government was Chief John Odigie Oyegun, the first Executive Governor of Edo State.

    Quite early in the ill-fated Third Republic, he established
    in his office, the Political Bureau (Politburo), charged essentially, with the business of publicity.
    The Politburo was manned by this writer; Prof.
    Stanley Orobator and Dr. Joseph Ebohon, as he then was – both of the University of Benin; and
    Dr. Ojo Sinatra of AAU, Ekpoma.

    We put the opposition constructively on the
    defence. It was clear to us that the Budget, and other important policy thrusts,
    were not meant to gather dust in offices. As soon as the budget was presented, we ran away with it.

    In the next one week, we took it to all the Local Government Headquarters across the State,
    preaching its good gospel and indicating the goodies that it had for each area.

    We cultivated the best possible popular press made up of the best up and coming vibrant journalists in NTA, EBS and the print
    media. We remember the likes of Ransley Abu Osagie
    and Dele Ailemen of EBS, Felix Oriakhi of Observer,
    who fell in love with our operations to the extent that they would even be prepared to sleep
    in the office to design programmes and talk-shows for us.

    We sponsored those beautiful write-ups by vibrant Professors, real
    and imagined, in virtually all our Universities and at
    very little or no cost, the likes of Comrade Godwin Erhahon transversed the entire country,
    planting the articles in the choicest spaces in the best newspapers of
    the time. We left the opposition with no standing space.

    At the political end, late Pa Ebomwonyi, State Publicity Secretary of the SDP, was also casting his stones.

    Every policy has two sides. If government remains dormant on the positive side,
    the opposition would step in with the negatives and create
    a lot of misinformation and deliberate falsehood;
    thus leaving government to be struggling to extricate itself.

    No one ever envisaged that a time would come when thousands of kilometres of solid roads would be provided, or a time when close to 200 luxury buses would be procured
    to boost the intra-city transportation; and no one would talk about them,
    except at campaign rallies and in anniversary brochures, which have very limited circulation – only in official circles!

    Neither did we know that a time would come when government would become so conserving; or hoarding
    of vital information needed for deep-rooted analyses.
    A government is only as good as the favourable media reportage it gets.

    There is a popular advert, which holds that if you think education is expensive, you should try ignorance.
    As they say in the colloquial, “soup wey sweet, na money killam.”

    Government must learn to put its money where its mouth is.

    It is a height of self-denial, bordering on masochism, to be squandering your money
    on private media outfits while leaving your own media hanging perilously on the balance.

    And nowhere in the enabling laws were the government media intended to
    declare annual profits in terms of Naira and Kobo. The
    profit or loss they make can only be assessed in terms of the
    propagation of government activities, which is their primary function.

    Edo State cannot keep shortchanging itself when indeed it
    has all it takes to remain on top. However, a few
    short steps must be taken.

    The Nigerian Observer cannot be expected to perform 2017 feats using 1968 methods.
    Today, it is a storehouse for the most obsolete printing machines.
    Sadly, this is happening at a digital age where
    at the press of a button, your colour-print newspapers will role
    out simultaneously in Washington, DC, London and Abuja;
    and in less than one hour, you are done with the printing of the one million copies of your newspaper.

    And these things are affordable.

    The EBS was born into the roughest waters and all it
    has known is persecution. You can imagine having to exist under the heavy weight of the NPN and PDP politicos, none of which wanted
    EBS alive. One exempt will suffice here.

    At inception, the EBS mast was intended for state-wide
    coverage and beyond. That was before the obnoxious argument that the mast was on aviation route and thus the height must be drastically
    reduced. The first port of call in any attempt at
    revamping EBS is to take the mast to its original height.

    Whatever happened to the Government Press? Time was when the citizen could walk into the Paper Office
    in the House of Assembly and he got on demand, the Order Paper, Votes and Proceedings, the Debates and any piece of legislation. These have today become extreme luxuries that government can no longer
    afford. Government can never grow under such a
    retrogressive system.

    No organisation ever grows higher than the
    environment in which it exists. Over the
    years, our information sector has witnessed many staff deaths, retirements and resignations;
    and vacancies have remained unfilled. The organisations are at
    the verge of imminent collapse. Something must be done urgently!

    The epileptic nature of our electricity supply is not helping matters, either.
    Essentially our media houses operate on diesel around the clock.
    Such cannot be further overburdened with the payment of the Internally Generated
    Revenue, IGR. This is the minimum that government can do while arranging a comprehensive recovery package.
