Sprouted Almond Milk
  • 1 cup organic Almonds
  • 4 cup water (plus extra for soaking)
  • 1/2 tsp ground cardamom
  • 1/3 tsp ground pure vanilla
  • a tiny pinch himalayan salt
Violet & Liquorice Cloud Drink
  • 2 cups almond milk (see above)
  • 1 large organic banana
  • 1/2 tsp raw liquorice root powder
  • 1 tsp unpasteurized honey
  • 7 ice cubes
  • + a small handful of violets and some extra ice cubes


Sprouted Almond Milk
  1. Soak the almonds in pure water overnight or for at least 5 hours, rinse thoroughly and peel them.
  2. Add the almonds (peel goes in the compost) to a high speed blender along with the 4 cups of water. Blend for 30 seconds and strain through a nut milk bag or the like. Save the almond pulp for tarts, smoothies, pancakes etc.
  3. Add nutmilk back into the high speed blender along with the spices and blend. Done!
Violet and Liquorice Cloud Drink
  1. Add all ingredients except the violets and additional ice cubes to a high speed blender and blend until foamy and smooth.
  2. Pour the drink into small glasses or jars, add the petals of 5-10 violets to each drink.
  3. Some additional ice cubes is nice and pretty straws are a must.
