How to Make a Rich Cream From Nutritious Almonds
A Cream Made From Almonds
Almond cream is a wonderfully tasty concoction that offers a healthful alternative to cow's milk, making a nutritious topping for hot or cold cereals.
If you like thick, creamy-tasting toppings for your cereal but don't care for the calories/fats found in cow's milk, almond cream is the perfect substitute.
For those with milk allergies, almond cream is a dairy-free alternative, which means no more eating cereal dry.
Almond cream is also wonderful served over top of fresh fruit. For a truly healthful breakfast, serve a warm cooked cereal, topped with fresh fruit and delicious almond cream. See my hub for how-to's for making cream of Kamut cereal.
