Almond & Saffron Milk Shake

  Almonds are one of the most delicious nuts. They are enriched with many health benefiting nutrients that are essential for optimum health.
  The almond that we think of as a nut is technically the seed of the fruit of the almond tree.
  I am very happy to share a delightful summer treat here.

Ingredients

Almonds - 20
Milk - 4 cups
Saffron - 1 pinch
Sugar - 1/2 cup
Rose essence - 2 drops
Cardamon powder 2 pinches


Recipe

1) Soak the almonds in water for two hours.
2) Then peel the skin off the almonds  and grind it to a very fine paste with sufficient milk and keep aside.
3) Add the almond paste to milk and boil for 10 - 15 minutes by stirring continuously.
4) Put saffron on a ladle and heat it on the stove, then powder it with your hand and add this to the boiling milk.
5) To this add sugar and once they dissolve nicely mix in rose water and cardamon powder.
6) Allow to cool nicely.
7) Serve cold by garnishing with saffron strands and chopped almonds.


Tips

1) You can adjust the consistency of the Almond milk by adding cold milk.
