Apricot and Almond Milk
Servings: 1 person
Smooth, creamy and fragrant. This drink is indulgent yet healthy – filling enough to form part of your breakfast but great at any time of the day. Try it alongside a hot curry as an alternative to lassi.
- 250 ml almond milk (I use Alpro Original)
- 3 dried apricots (I use ready to eat)
- A few drops of orange flower water (optional)
- A sprinkling of cinnamon (optional)
If you have time then place the apricots in the milk and leave to soak, in the fridge, for a few hours to allow them to soften further.
Place the apricots, almond milk and orange flower water (if using), in your blender beaker and whizz until smooth – 45 seconds or so.
Pour into a glass, leaving any little lumps of apricot at the bottom of the beaker. Top with a light sprinkling of cinnamon if you wish.
