Why Is Homemade Almond (Badam) 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 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 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. Stir nicely, and you're done. You can store this powder for about one and a half months.

Now, let me show you how to prepare your own badam milk powder at home.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup almonds (badam)
  • 1 1/4 cup or less sugar, can use rock sugar for better health benefits
  • 4 dry dates, seed removed, roughly chopped
  • 2 tablespoons pistachios, shell removed
  • 4 cardamom
  • 1 tablespoon dried grapes
  • 1/4 teaspoon saffron

Instructions

  1. Put almonds (badam) in a pan. Heat them. Saute for about 3 minutes.
  2. The almonds should be warm. Turn off the heat. Transfer them to a plate. Put aside for cooling. This step is mainly to make almonds crispy. This will help to powder them faster.
  3. Put them in a mixer. Add sugar, chopped dry dates, dried grapes, pistachios, saffron, and cardamom.
  4. Dry grind them to make a smooth powder. Your favorite almond milk powder is ready!
  5. Use this aromatic mix to make badam milk.
  6. Add a teaspoon full of this powder to a cup of hot milk. Just stir it well. You get a flavorful, creamy badam milk.

Thanks for reading my hub. I appreciate your health concerns. No doubt, my almond milk powder is nutritious. But, you have to add it with milk to make a drink out of it. I have one more similar recipe. Please check https://hubpages.com/beverages/Almond-Energy-Drink... Try both recipes. I guess you can try adding more almond drink mixture in water and skip adding milk. Just check for taste. If you find it okay, use it regularly. Anyway, this drink will be healthy only.

Hi! Thank you for sharing! Can this mixture be used to make an instant almond milk? We are a dairy free family and go through almond milk containers almost daily. I am hoping i could make this and stop all the waste of milk containers!
