Freshly-made Almond Milk
Freshly made almond milk -- hot or cold -- is a delight. I throw a huge handful of almost in about 2 cups of water and buzz them in my high-speed Blendtec blender for about a minute. The milk whips to a frothy creaminess. Once it's well-blended, I add whatever amount of water is necessary for the texture and flavor I want. While some people like drinking the milk chilled and without the froth, I like it warm.
And to, literally, spice it up a bit, I sometimes add a bit of vanilla bean that's been soaked to soften it, or a shake or two of cinnamon. Anyway, this is one of my favorite drinks in cold weather. Easy to make, low on calories, and high on both nutrition and flavor.
