October 21, 2013

WHO: Onetribegourmet is a realtor and food blogger in Philadelphia who loves to travel.

WHAT: Homemade almond milk, without an overnight soak.

HOW: Throw some almonds in a food processor, process into a paste, then simmer in water. Strain, then spike with orange blossom water and cinnamon.

WHY WE LOVE IT: Making almond milk from scratch is a perfect example of kitchen magic; each time we do it, we can't believe how easy -- and how good -- it is. We love the way onetribegourmet flavors hers -- we'll take a glass with breakfast, and with our afternoon snack.

I too love the glass carafe. I make almond milk every week and would love to have a simple carafe with a spout to pour into my cup of tea.
