Author Notes: Refreshing & Sweet Moroccan style Almond Milk infused w/Orange Blossom Water is a delicious & healthy drink which is a favorite in Morocco. I remember drinking this refreshing drink on a hot afternoon in Fes, Morocco this past June!onetribegourmet

Serves 4

  • 1/2 cup sugar (use as much or less sugar)

  3. Cool the mixture, strain the liquid through a muslin cloth or a fine strainer.

You're in NYC? Whole Foods, Dean and DeLuca, and Kalustyan's are all places where I've purchased it. Sometimes liquor stores sell it as well.

This just sounds lovely. I'm wondering though, how long does it keep in the fridge ? Would be great if I can make some beforehand and drink it over a few days!

What a great way to combine beautiful citrus flavours with nutty ones. And spice. On my to do list........ I might toast the almonds, with some cardamom!!!!!!!!!

Not to get all "raw" on everybody, BUT, you can make almond milk without the heat, and keep all the nutrition...I make it every week. Soak 1 cup almonds in water overnight, drain and rinse, blend very well on high in blender with 4 cups fresh water before straining. Then add flavorings. Agave mixes better than sugar for sweetness.

Thank you jblock for the "raw" recipe for the almond milk! I will have to try it! Agave for sweetener is a great idea!
