Why Is Homemade Almond Milk Powder Better Than Store-Bought?

Buying badam/almond milk powder from the market and using it instantly is an easy and quick thing to do. But if you check the ingredients list, it is easy to see that the majority of almond milk powders actually contain very few almonds. They are loaded with milk powder and starch. These mixes are usually really sweet—too sweet for some people, even.

Making your own powder at home has many benefits. The foremost being that you can use the right portion of almonds, sugar, and the other dry fruits to make it nutrient-dense and tasty.

You wouldn't believe that it took me about ten minutes to make a container full of badam milk powder. Truly, it is very easy to make this milk mix. Try this recipe and enjoy drinking this protein-rich beverage regularly.

Mix one teaspoon full of this mix into a cup of hot milk. Just stir nicely. Done. You can store this powder for about one and a half months.

Now, let me show you how to make badam/almond milk powder at home.

Some Important Information

I used other dry fruits and nuts, like dry dates, pistachios, saffron, and dried grapes, in small quantities.

Adding these ingredients makes the powder healthier, richer, and tastier.

Drink a glass of this beverage daily for the needed dose of nutrients.
