SILKY ALMOND COCONUT MILK RECIPE

This delicious smooth, silky almond coconut milk recipe is nutty and slightly sweet, with the perfect creamy consistency.

By looks alone, it can easily pass for dairy milk and you will think the taste is even better! 

Almond coconut milk is wonderful way to add heart healthy monounsaturated fats to your diet.

Plus it’s easy to make and versatile – being a quick alternative to store-bought non-dairy milks.

Almond milk is delicious alone, but the addition of coconut in this recipe is way more exciting! 

Blendtec vs Vitamix Review

A high speed blender, like a Blendtec or Vitamix will quickly make the almond milk, however a 700 watt blender (such as a nutribullet) will also work!

Just make sure you have a nut milk bag or double layer cheesecloth to strain the almond pulp out.

BLENDER BABES RECIPE TESTER NOTES

“I froze some of the recipe in an ice cube tray to make into soft serve or smoothies. I recommend this idea!”

“It would be awesome to use as a creamer for your coffee or hot chocolate. Perfect for smoothies. Great on its own even. I LOVE this one! I will never buy store-bought almond milk again. So easy. I will probably double this recipe here on out.”

ALMOND HEALTH BENEFITS 

Natural, unsalted almonds are a tasty and nutritious snack with plenty of health benefits. Loaded with minerals, they are also among the healthiest of tree nuts. Just a handful of nutrient-rich almonds a day helps promote heart health and prevent weight gain, and it may even help to fight against diseases like diabetes and Alzheimer’s.

Nutrition
Almonds, a significant source of protein and fiber, are also naturally low in sugar. Almonds are rich in vitamin E, calcium, magnesium and potassium.

Heart Health
According to the FDA, eating 1.5 ounces a day almonds, may reduce your risk of heart disease. Many of the nutrients in almonds help contribute to increased heart health. For one, almonds are rich in magnesium, which is critical in preventing heart attacks and hypertension.

Weight Maintenance
Nuts, like almonds, are also beneficial for maintaining healthy weight. The fiber, protein and fat content of almonds means it only takes a handful to keep you feeling full and satisfied so you don’t have an urge to overeat.
