Whether you’re a vegan, sensitive to milk or just don’t like the taste of cow milk, almond milk is a great alternative.
This light, delicious drink is more beneficial and nutritious than ordinary dairy milk. It’s low in fat, but high in energy, proteins, and fiber. Almond milk is a rich source of vitamins (C, B-6, E) and minerals (calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium and zinc).
Almond milk could be easily dehydrated for longer storage or for using in dairy-free, gluten-free backpacking meals or drinks.
How to make almond milk powder
Make a “bowl” from non-stick dehydrator sheet by folding up all the edges and fastening them with clips.
Place empty bowl on dehydrator tray. Pour in 2 cups of almond milk.
Dehydrate at 135°F/57C for 15-18 hours or until milk is completely dry and brittle.
Grind dried milk pieces into a fine powder using a coffee grinder. Store almond milk powder in an air tight container or zip-lock bag in a dark, cool place.
To make one cup of almond milk pour 2 tablespoons of powder into a mug. Mix to a smooth paste with 2 tablespoons of cold or hot water. Add the rest of the water and whisk for 20 seconds.
