I like to try new recipes and learn about new ingredients and products. One thing I have never used before is Almond Breeze Milk. I was offered a pack to try and to come up with a breakfast recipe. As this product is good dariy free alternative to milk, I thought I’d use it to make Low Fat Almond Milk Pannacotta with Lychees and Strawberries.
The Chinese have a very popular pudding made with almond tofu and lychees. I think the consistency of tofu would not be right for breakfast but a softer pannacotta made with Almond Breeze Milk and yoghurt would work quite well. Especially if you serve it with a nice fruity accompaniment.
Almond Milk is actually a great substitute for plain milk, rice milk or even soya milk. (I personally have never understood how you can add soya milk to tea and coffee as we drink it as a beverage in Asia where is is sold on street stalls all over.) This product is unsweetened and has 60% less calories than skimmed milk. Almonds are a great source of nutrition and some might call it a superfood. Almonds are low in saturated fat and are full of good monosaturated fat, minerals, calcium, Vitamin E, fibre and protein.
Here is my recipe :
