Cooking is one of my passions. I like to make nutritious and tasty foods at home without using preservatives or artificial colors.
Why Is Homemade Almond (Badam) Milk Powder Better Than Store-Bought?
Sure, buying badam/almond milk powder from the market is easy and quick. 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 often really sweet—even too sweet for some people.
Making your powder at home has many benefits. The foremost is that you can use the right portion of almonds, sugar, and 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.
